The recent history of autism awareness comes from a brutal past.  This article explains how these neurotypical people's minds are different, but not a psychosis nor abnormal...........Though Hitler's Gestapo killed off many autistic people as disabled people were exterminated throughout Europe, some managed to escape their clutches and the clutches of doctors who thought they were psychotic,  to function well and raise awareness among parents and others of what it is to be autistic.......

It's a natural neurological difference, and most autistic adults reject the idea of a cure. Steve Silberman explains.

I love this. Having aspergers autism myself, I've tried numerous times to explain what it's like, and a lot of people still act today like they acted before. It's really frustrating.

This is crazy making. It's origins are questionable, but the argument is specious and is begging the question (see the fallacy petitio principii.) 

1) Who on the government dole really expects to be happy and prosperous? I've known many who needed assistance, and none, except college students and bailed out bankers have much expectation of happiness, much less prosperity. Furthermore, the American Indian was always an enemy of the state until they were caged and beaten, then they were a ward of the state, and I don't know many from the res expecting much prosperity either, dignity maybe. Is this more of what we can expect now that the "straight talking" Trump is a GOP front runner?

On the Warrior River in Alabama, a couple of fishermen spy something swimming toward their boat for rescue.............kittens!  Someone had dumped them on an island in the river, but they spied possible rescue...................

Definitely a bigger commitment than the typical catch, but totally worth it.

Great save - sad though, that some people appear to be such fucking assholes.

Cross-referencing their hacked info from hacks of multiple USA sites, emails and databases, foreign governments are developing profiles of Americans and all their associated friends and families to discover vulnerabilities for counterintelligence work.  Blackmail, extortion, etc. will be utilized to pry information and secrets.  

http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-cyber-spy-20150831-story.html
Foreign spy services, especially in China and Russia, are aggressively aggregating and cross-indexing hacked U.S. computer databases — including security clearance applications, airline records and medical insurance forms — to identify U.S. intelligence officers and agents, U.S. officials said.

One of the biggest challenges to deal with in the workday is the co-worker who constantly interrupts with whatever is on their mind.  I know, I know, you've asked yourself, "when did I ask her/him what was on their mind???" and couldn't find an answer.  Some people just let you have it, both barrels, all day long......................if you let them...........

I just get up and walk away without saying anything to them.
There's one that will follow me sometimes, and keep talking. So I take him on a trip around the complex.
I also keep an assortment of disgusting pictures on my phone, and did that busting in with a "hey check this out" will often stop them cold... Have to be sure the particular person isn't going to run to HR though.
