I've learned that trying to be neurotypical is a full-time job.

And I quit.

doom meant 'judgement' and 'the law' in the anglo-saxon. 

dooms were laws. spiritually too. doom was ordained.

this is the end of my inane reading or at least my posting of my reading of wikipedia prompted by your music recommendation. i have enjoyed it.

Sometimes someone is considered so attractive that there's very little one can do other than accept the basic fact that we are all islands.

It also applies to the usage of "modern thought" as a Black person. I recall being reduced to "Bob Marley" because I had an analysis of what "rhetoric" is, as Nietzschean thought: "rhetoric is the substance of style". If you stop and think about it, it makes no sense to suggest that Bob Marley might have described rhetoric as such, if he had any opinion of the field of philosophy at all. So having intellectual ability and expressing it freely and openly is seen as having an ulterior motive.

Then we're asked by liberals, "Notice how Blacks underperform under standardized testing? How is that? What causes this?"

Privilege is not being able to see where privilege exists. Let's call it "thinking while Black". We're told to educate ourselves and lift ourselves up by our bootstraps, but when we do, we're redefined as more advanced predators.

But then one might say, "That's just low self-esteem" — well, then it's a question of historical awareness. "Well, I just couldn't think of anyone else who looks sort of like you who may or may not have said something cerebral or 'philosophical'. It's not racist — I'm just unfortunately undereducated on history but wanted to say something to dismiss you."

I personally just don't know what to say to this. So the derision may not be "racist", but it's as if one were to mistake a George Bush catchphrase for a Gandhian epigram. I mean, given the content of the talk exchange, that's also a big factor against the idea that it wasn't unwittingly racist. I look like what I look like, and "rhetoric is the substance of style," if said by someone who doesn't look like me absolutely would not first ring to most people as a Marleyism. Where do we draw this line? With spades like this, I'm shit out of luck for an ace.

Another big issue is the amount of time Blacks have to spend parsing the junkthought of secret racists, and the power non-racist, nevertheless malevolent, people have in being able to troll with proxy/virtual and multilateral racism as weapons.

Brilliant close, brilliant exposition all together. You've helped me remember some of my own conclusions about Asperger's Syndrome, specifically in being confused by emotional exchanges with neurotypicals. This, combined with the scientistic popularization of the psychological, was at one point a very critical realization in my own growth. Due to mental illness I might have lost the concept forever had I not stumbled into this vlog.

Most people fail to understand the nature of analysis of those "bewildering" persons with respect to the patient. They confuse it for narcissism, or they generally attempt to "psychoanalyze" it, responding "diagnostically" rather than dialectically — as if all language, or functional language, or the customization of language (metacommunication itself, or the journey in labeling the words of others) were scientistic in nature or the tendency toward confidence or inconfidence in evidential modeling, and its successful operation (the tendency of language users to "look" for solutions). Even in more liberal minded societies, Asperger's (or what is basically being confused by others, symptomatically speaking) is largely categorized, principally, politically, and socially, or confused as mental illness. Typically Aspies need "therapists," where it seems to beg the question of a self-selective genetic basis, or pairing principle organization, over time and sufficient rate of dialogical identity differentiation.

    Created Grunt recipes/Node.js integration for existing build ecosystem based on Go Build Servers. (e.g., Consuming in-house font icon libraries at build time via grunt-curl.)

Combined RequireJS/r.js, AngularJS (angularAMD), BreezeJS (strictly API consumption, non-Entity Framework), Bootstrap, and Google Maps (with MapClusterer) for a modular and modern-ish mobile front end. (Not Responsive, but focused on a small set of devices; and yes, that tech stack, of which I defended use cases for RequireJS and BreezeJS specifically.) Introduced BEM CSS ideas/concepts to manage Big CSS codebases. Introduced analytical tools like Plato and analyze-css for static analysis of JS and CSS build. Introduced tools to automate CSS sprite creation. Implemented datacontext-dependent D3 graphs (Treemap, Doughnut, etc. charts) for cheap visualization with light interactivity to give insight into arbitrary data sets. (I call this "data painting," basically.) Implemented minimalistic, responsive data tables. Knowledge sharing at semi-weekly UI Stand Up meetings (presenting modern tools like FF's 3D View and its use-cases, etc. or various CLI tools because *nix). Helped craft and conduct developer interview sessions (in-person, live coding, and phone screening).
