    Historical invention blueprints

    Post your old blueprints here. I count anything not detailing something we use everyday as "historical", even if the blueprint itself is only a few decades old. Try to include the name of the inventor as well as the invention if you can. The more bonkers, useless and idiosyncratic of an...

    Just an Appreciation for good Data

    I’m doing the nightshift in the sleep lab right now and got nothing to do for the next 7 hours. But that’s okay because the EEG-data we are collecting is just SO CLEAN today. I love it when the EEG actually works because there are so many things that can disturb the signal. It’s so exciting...

    There is zero scientific evidence people with autism are neurodiverse

    I have studied the science of autism for years. There is zero scientific evidence that autistic brains are wired differently. Other people not being cured by CBT is irrelevant. It just means they weren't able to identify and change the beliefs that caused their symptoms. Given how stubborn...

    Am I annoyed by this or have I learned to be grouchy about it?

    Belong to a breast cancer program. Every year I go for a mammogram, I'm in the control group, as there is no breast cancer in my family history. Then spend twenty minutes or so having my breasts squeezed between two thick flat glass plates. While a technician re-adjusts the angles and touches...
