  4. NO!!! Please, no more.... you are scaring me! :shock:
    (And this came from the country that our gun-totting NR friend belongs to???)
    I hope this kid doesn't get his hands on one! :shock:
  5. I think that on the upside, the kids may kill their parents first. That makes it all seem worthwhile.
  6. If only there was a way to stop them breeding in the first place :LOL:
  7. Greenteagirl is pretty hot though! :eek: And she loves pugs!
  8. Classic Asperger's Syndrome. It's a mild form of Autistic Spectrum Disorder. He's a bit odd, but probably harmless. :)
  9. Thank god for that...he would be REALLY scary otherwise! :LOL:
  10. I only said "probably." I get more than my share of work related bruises. :wink: :)
  11. Not taking my chances on that one! :LOL:
  12. You sure about that? He seems like more of an Ass Burger than Asperger's :LOL:
  13. got over it at 30 seconds............another whinging yank!!!!! :LOL:
  14. eh, have to disagree. aspergers is when they dont pick up the signs of body language. they're usually very calm, annoying people.

    the anger is what speaks to me. i think he has borderline personality disorder because he sees himself as a victim.

    he doesnt look at the situation and ask 'what was my role in that out come'.

    being a 'victim' all his life is getting him angry. he feels he is getting a bad deal that he didn't deserve.

    im sure there are hundreds of guys like that and only 1 or 2 of them pose danger.

    stump it up! :cool:

    See how much body language he picks up on here. None. :wink: He fails to notice his captured audience is bored and would rather leave. The lack of sincerity in their voice is not enough for him to notice that their praise and participation is forced in an attempt to be polite.
    Reading body language is not the only sign of aspergers. They have trouble understanding communication and social interaction on many levels. This video is terrific as it shows his knowledge of humour. He realises jokes are funny and that people like them, but he doesn't know that delivery, timing and context are important aspects of making a joke funny. He also fails to recognise information that most people can interpret without explanation. For example, the light bulb gag was obvious, yet he felt a need to explain it. :)

    As for calm, I tend to disagree. They're at best, no more or less calm in general than anyone else. However, the difficulty they have in interactions and the extra thinking they need to perform in order to process information can be extremely tiring and frustrating, leading them to anger easily. Often this comes with a lack of understanding for what is considered an appropriate display of frustration or anger and can have (seemingly unwarranted) loud outbursts in inappropriate places and situations.

    I don't disagree with your suggestion that he has a personality disorder, but I'm not in a position to make that call. It's mild in comparison to what we usually have presented as aspergers, but I am convinced he's on the spectrum though. :)
    Those on the spectrum rarely do. People with any form of Autism tend to be extremely egocentric and always consider themselves to have done the right thing, because their own behaviour is the only behaviour that makes sense to them. They blame others until someone explains what went wrong and why the other people acted in the manner they did. :)

    that is NOT aspergers. children with aspergers and autism do not thru tantrums at age 2-3. it's normal to throw tantrums at that age and is considered a sign of aspergers if they don't.

    they're calm and express their frustrations by clinging onto a security blanket in the form of a toy that they cannot leave the house without.

    they're obsessed with maps for some reason.

    im in no position to make the call either. fun to chat about it tho!


    this is classic bpd behavior that can occur in aspergers as well.

    stump'n flip flops! :LOL: :?: :mad: :cry: :LOL: :oops: :? :shock:
  17. Yes they do throw tantrums at 2-3, I've seen them throw some doozies. Not all of them throw tantrums, but then not all non-autistic children throw tantrums either. Autistic people can also throw similar tantrums at 6, 12, 18 and much older depending on their temperament. I see it everyday. Not all autistic adults are prone to tantrums either but many are. If they didn't have tantrums, I wouldn't have a lovely, blue bruise on my shin tonight. :) We don't learn self defense as an in school part of professional development for nothing. :)

    Autism, isn't a clear cut case of they do or don't do certain things. Some symptoms are present in some cases and not in others. The presence of symptoms and behaviours varies considerably and proper diagnosis requires a multi disciplinary approach. It's most simply defined though by a deficiency in ability to communicate, lack of social understandings and lack of imaginative thought. Daxflame is a mild case but I still say it's there. :)

    Autistic people tend to form obsessions. Sometimes an obsession lasts a week, sometimes a lifetime. Not all are obsessed with maps, but it's a common obsession because maps are a concrete expression of space. They're easy to read, follow and understand. Nothing is abstract or assumed knowledge on a map. All the lines on the page also make for a great visual stim (like waving a hand in front of your face or looking up at power lines). The toys(security blanket) is just another obsession. Often they get some sensory input (usually tactile but not always) or it's something that gives them a sense of continuity. :)
    I meant that in regard to personality disorder. I'm a Special Education teacher. I work at an Autistic specialist school and have been in the field since Feb, 2000. I'm surrounded by people with all degrees of autism nearly every day so I've become pretty good at spotting it. :) You are right though, it's an interesting topic. :)
  18. thats news to me. you learn something new every day. thanks.
