Thanks, Renaeden! People on WP call me Big D, Imperious, or Dorky. TID is actually my trade name, but you can call me either. :) I'm checking out the Games forums later, though.

It's nice to know that you've worked with some Filipinos! How were you able to get along with them?

Parts, thanks for the welcome. I'm not a whiner here. I'm a winner! Hah!

TID then. :)

I found that they were kind, gentle, softly-spoken and easy-going. Very hard workers too.

Just wondering, did you ask your parents why they didn't tell you about your autism at an earlier age?

Renaeden, that's good to know! That is something we are proud of ourselves. ;)

As for my parents not telling me, they claimed they wished me to live a "normal" life, and not be stigmatized when I grow up. For a while, I had the assumption that I was just quirky, but when I had stumbled on some autism resources, I, at first, did a self-diagnosis, but when I asked my parents to have me officially diagnosed, that's where the truth came in. I was shown papers from a psychologist confirming that I have HFA.

So another HFA joins us. As far as I'm aware, me, Renaeden and now you are the only HFAs on here. I'm probably forgetting a few others.
Existence actually has two broad meanings despite its apparent meaningless. The constant reconciliation of all its parts, and the conservation of any closed system as a whole.

Morality can be extrapolated from these meanings to make these two commandments of godless morality: 1). Be in harmony with one another and 2). Care for the environment.

That certainly sounds like it would have been a WTF?? moment. HFA is more than just quirky imo (fellow HFAer here, there are a few of us on here). You sound like you have a good attitude about it, I think I would have been quite annoyed at my parents!

Edit: Just saw the Professor's post.

My question...

if you could have a super power for a day what would it be and why and how would you use it?


meh,  i would read minds,  and then blackmail folks for large amounts of cash after the super power wore off!
blah blah blah

Renaeden, that was really a WTF moment, though I knew it was coming. I grew up in the neurotypical world, and was compelled to behave like an NT, but still the HFA in me was still manifesting. Oh, well.

Bodaccea, if I'd have a superpower, I'll have the power of the Jumper. I will amass all the money, riches, items, and assets I can muster in any bank, museum, shop, or any other establishment worth plundering, and once my power's all used up for the day, I can buy everyone off.

I don't want to hear it. Save your complaints to Odeon. Yes, we had decided to drop hostilities. No, I didnt expect that Odeon would do other than start shit again like he always does
You're not going to stick to "a handful people", are you? That would be stupid.
Damned if I won't respond.
So it's on again & you can lay the blame squarely at his feet. Little passive-aggressive bitch
