I Still Hate Facebook

I still hate it. I still hate it I. Still. Fooking. Hate. It. I realized a while back that there is nothing social about it. But in a moment of highly confident Autism, I decided that I could make it social. My approach to making it social was somewhat simple, at least to me. IContinue reading “I Still Hate Facebook”

The Meritocracy is a Tool of Discrimination and Oppression

INTRODUCTIONIt was in the mid-1970s, and I was about 11-12 years old when I got a paper route. It was my first job where I report to someone else AND deal with customers. The scope of personal contact far exceeds a situation where I’d be mowing a lawn. The job involved delivering The Indianapolis StarContinue reading “The Meritocracy is a Tool of Discrimination and Oppression”

Clarification of my Domino’s Post

INTRODUCTIONI am writing this short because I can hear the mindless criticism of yesterday’s post, because there are some people out there who are so thick that they would almost instantly miss the entire point of the post. What would their criticism sound like? “Oh, you poor thing! You have to tell someone your addressContinue reading “Clarification of my Domino’s Post”

Farewell, Domino’s Pizza

INTRODUCTIONGiven the fact that I’ve lost over 30 pounds this year, I still have a scant few bad things on my menu. One of those things is Domino’s Pizza. I usually order a thin crust on the days where we decide to not cook. I initially started ordering online, until I called one time andContinue reading “Farewell, Domino’s Pizza”

How to Become a Loner

INTRODUCTIONHow does one become a loner? Are they born or made? Is it just a case of “stupid kid shit” that they’ll grow out of eventually? Through some highly honest self-reflection, I am going to attempt to answer some questions about this. ELEMENTS OF THE BORNThe loner is a complex individual who is a combinationContinue reading “How to Become a Loner”

The Aggressive Quest for Peace

Yes, I decided to attempt a long form entry on my phone. Let’s see how this ends up. INTRODUCTION There are many things that get in the way of peace. For some, there are more obstacles than there are for others. As an Autistic adult, my Autism can get in the way. My Autism alsoContinue reading “The Aggressive Quest for Peace”

Hi, How Are You?

INTRODUCTIONWhen I wake up in the morning, sometimes I’ll read through articles on my phone, in the Google news aggregator. Of course, there are stories from the day, as well as articles about mental health. There are even advice columns, such as the old-school Dear Abby, and the relatively new and similar Dear Annie. InContinue reading “Hi, How Are You?”

Death of The Salesman

INTRODUCTIONThis morning, I read a news story about how Starbucks has been implementing a contactless way to get your coffee, so that you never really have any meaningful interaction with the barista. Today, I’d like to write about my experiences with sales people, and with being one of them, as an Autistic person. I’d alsoContinue reading “Death of The Salesman”

The Paradox of the Adult Autistic Brain

INTRODUCTIONThere isn’t really much in the way of information to be found when it comes to the adult Autistic brain and aging. Most of what can be found online involves Autism in children. Add this to information I’ve received from experts, and it paints a picture that is odd and confusing, because it seems thatContinue reading “The Paradox of the Adult Autistic Brain”

Connection Criteria

INTRODUCTIONSA part of me wants to avoid human connections at all cost, save for the ones that I have already. They’re not toxic or dangerous. Gaining these friends was no small feat, as it required me to go through a sea of horrific people. On average, I gained one genuine friend every decade. Based onContinue reading “Connection Criteria”
