I heard a man speak once on autism ( wish I could remember his name now, but sadly I can't) and he said that it was unfortunate for the general population that we can't find a way to communicate with those who have autism no matter where they lie on the spectrum. He went on to say that if we gathered all the autistic people in the world as long as they were able to communicate ( meaning they were old enough to talk either with words or sign language) and put them into one huge arena and then allowed all the major corporations to give them their major problems to solve, they could talk among themselves because they could understand each other and they could easily solve the problems that "normal" people no matter how high their intelligence level seem to be cannot solve.
The speech was really enlightening because it shows just how isolated autistic people live even though they are in households with other people. When one can't communicate other than just basic needs, it really is a lonely world.
I will try to remember the man's name and if I do I will see if the speech is online and send you the link.
I once gave my eight year old autistic nephew a toy laser gun that made sparks, the first thing he did was study it for about five minutes. You could tell that he was figuring it out how it works and see it in his face the moment he figured it out. He's also amazing with video games, particularly ones that involve solving problems.

They are psychopaths. They always have this sick little laugh like they are so important and winning.

it's truly amazing what they can do, if you can get them to interact with you. I have known a couple of autistic people and they truly are in their own worlds. It's hard to get them to interact with others ...:(

Rarely does it happen, but sometimes I laugh when it's inappropriate to laugh. Don't know why that is. Could be a nervous reaction or I have a neurosis of the psychosis, lol. Sometimes I just get the giggles, for no reason at all. The body or mind's response to build up stress perhaps, Idk, but it does end up making me feel so much better then if I hadn't laughed at all.

When I was in First grade...I would laugh so much...I spent most of that year kneeling in front of the Blessed Mother Statue...it didn't help. Even now, when I see her Statue, I just drop to my knees out of habit...LOL
