    Prosaic Synopsis Game - make it dull!

    Do some people only "like" pop culture, to fit in?

    Many popular songs, music artists, movies, and TV shows get circulated throughout the mainstream, becoming "viral." I believe that many people don't actually appreciate the artistic quality of such media (if you could call some of it artistic, at all), and care only for how trendy they'll...

    Is apergers/ autism a glamerised condition.

    It is the only condition where people go I think I'm a touch autistic. You would never say something like I think I have a touch of cerebral pausy. People also go on about all the celebrities with it and how it is only mild. I sometimes feel like parents want their kids to have it as an excuse...
