Awww Alex, your dad is autistic! I started to wonder when i saw the position of his fingers when he first came up, then i saw the posture of his right arm and i noticed his silence and then i was sure.

Damn I still got it, i still can diagnose with little info :)

My theory that our type of autism is ALWAYS inherited from one of the parents remains unchallenged.


You've made an interesting observation. Thanks for enjoying the film! I'm trying to get as many people to watch it as possible.

I watched it yesterday morning, and thought that it was well done. --I believe I may have mentioned this elsewhere on this site.

Also FWIW, curebie crackpot John Best called both you, and Temple Grandin 'Lying Scumbags' amongst other things on his blog, so if that's coming from him, it would probably be best to take his comment as a 'congradulations, well done!'

And I came across it by notifications from my YouTube friends (of WP) and their activities. If you want more views then one suggestion is to give it more tags so people get to find it easier. A longer description of the content can contribute to more tags as well... but you are a YouTube partner and owner of this site having the best facilities to raise it in views naturally... Oh yeah, You got my five star in a videomaking point of view. You surely knows how to make videos!

And it was a smart idea to change the color of the link on top of page. Its more visible now. If you put it next to the "inbox" then EVERYONE who enter the forum will click on it as they would probably interpret it as beeing a private message as its the same color for that :wink:

I feel compelled to say that the fact that the title of the documentary is not capitalized is driving me bananas. LOL :P

I enjoyed the film very much, Alex. Great job. I was especially interested in the Mohawk man and what he had to say about autism being an automatic qualification for shamanism in the American Indian community. Sorry, I didn't catch his name though. And of course, I always love to see and hear Temple. Also wanted to say that the quality of the film and the sound was super good and the content was really informative. It makes me want to give the link to my family and friends and say, "Here, watch this." The film is an excellent vehicle for prying open the eyes and ears of people who just don't "get it."

Superb video :) . It's nice to hear from those who actually have Autism/Asperger's and KNOW what there talking about, instead of hearing it from people who see autism as a incurable disease.
