    Wisdom of Arrogance Proverbial, petalled... parallel and perpendicular to an existing space No one pays heed as I watch and listen to ideas and discussion flow in an stormy torrent The flotsam and jetsom ravaged by opinion... no quantifiable variable to be found, in fact extinct A fault in...

    Just To Start Things Off (calling all girls)

    Diagnosis in females tends to happen much later than in males. Partially because of a biased diagnosis model, different presentation, and different expectations of male vs. female behaviours in children. Females often learn to mask at a very early age and present a facade that is more...

    I ate a tasty apple today

    Akin to bananas being perfect when they are two days from being banana bread fodder. The sugar contents are higher and the textures are marginally softer. A perfect combination. Granny Smith apples (sour or green apples), I've never understood the widespread appeal.

    I ate a tasty apple today

    Fuji apples are my favourites. Honeycrisp are also very good, but a bit more tart than Fujis.

    How confident are you finding work?

    It is six occurrences of the same mistake. Grammar mistakes happen, typos happen, but from past context a minimum 12% skew in a group of under 50 words is a huge indicator of spammers. This is an individual offering an 'advice service'. Zero context, zero background, zero explanation...not...

    Toad the Wet Sprocket Words on a dog star screen that conjures wild thoughts of a Toad, an Oracle of old Delphi, of a fern fringed pond a prophet upon brick red stone Or A Knight, errant and disgraced by a court of sleek skin frogs-- Thwart, awaiting requisite quest in the shade of a clichéd...

    Have You Ever Had An Uncommon Diet?

    There isn't much that bothers me foodwise. Texture-wise, whole different ball of wax. I love grains, dairy (cheese), raw fruit, and select vegetables (potatoes, etc). I don't mind seafood. I usually make a pound of chicken once a week incorporated with noodles and texture approved veggies...

    Bad Poetry thread

    Star Socks Fox on the Line Sun bright sheets billow, guises of battle standards, sails, and wings— among them, upon ripples of grass lay a book, open to page sixty-four, Where the Sidewalk Ends, the name of a place at the end of all things. Between the snap and bite of white, a fox from Alder...

    How confident are you finding work?

    @Fino The point I am trying to illustrate is that when someone provides zero context and unsolicited career advice, it comes across as questionable. Communication is a huge part of one's work experience and a part where many autistics struggle, yet here is a post riddled with issues offering...

    How confident are you finding work?

    From a reader's standpoint: 1) There is a missing preposition in the post title, right off the bat this screams of rushed work with little thought toward presentation. People will judge you by your grammar. e.g. of finding work, about finding work, with finding work. Then it gets into the...

    Are you "noticeably autistic"?

    No. I learned to mask well, very early, and I've worked frontside at a bookshop for a number of years, so I people surprisingly well. However, hit on a subject I know something about or like and I speak only in information dumps. I talk fast and hit hard with huge bricks of data. Being a...

    Confessions from the Spectrum

    Reading through some recent threads has really made me realise the level of autonomy I have over my life. Consistent employment at a job I excel at and enjoy. I live independently (not alone, but no one pays my bills, does my chores, etc...) and have since undergrad, despite a major chronic...
