This story is interesting and wonder what this does to the autis rates. It's amazing people are still being diagnosed once they're adults.

Let me make myself a little more clear in relation to those autism rates I mentioned.

The amazing part was being sarcastic.

The autism rates mainly include only school aged children, not adults so the rates would even be higher if they ever included adults- meaning the autism rates are flawed as yet another adult was diagnosed but missed as a child.

Autism was added to IDEA in about 1990-1992 and thats about when the rates started jumping, when school started counting.

The sarcasm wasn't directed at you, but appropriately to the system that counts the autism rates that is so very flawed. This article provides a good example of how flawed it is.
That was the point I was making.

I was being direct and to the point, don't make a bigger deal of it than it is.

You know, it has nothing to do with what I cant stand or you agreeing. It has to do with your own guess of "feely emotional" and "Sarcastic?
It's the same old same old." (was no respect) added to your agreeing which makes it hard to have a conversation at all without you picking it apart.

Like I said, don't make a bigger deal than what it is.

Here we go again. No topic can be without it, can it? I was hopeful, if anything, since you made a comment after I did (again) Big difference to being sarcastic to a article than to a person and has nothing to do with emotions, let alone you.
Post #1, you asked why it was amazing, I answered you, maybe other's didn't 'get it' as well.
Post #6 is where it went south
Post #11 is where I start ignoring you, again.

Im not sure what the problem is but I have the worst luck out in the workforce. Bottom line I cant hold down a job.
I'm 44 years old and just in the last 7-8 years working has been horrible...termination after termination.
