Top 10 List

Well it has been awile sence my lastpost here. Well alot has happened in Brigadoon. We now have mew members. I will say Hi here to them and welcome to Brigadoon. We also have a cool sea tavern called the Salty Dawg. Also getting a new lighthouse as I am typing this :)


Now I am sure the name caught your eye well someone talked about a Top 10 list so I did 2 one why is cool and why it sucks to be AS.

Top 10 why it is cool to be AS

10. You have a great excuse for tpyos and missspellllling of words.

9.  You can listen to everything or nothing, all at the sametime.

8.  You do not have to worry about working by yourself. You work better that way!

7.  You do not waist your time climbing the corperate ladder, or being promoted to the highest level of incompitence, (The Peter principal) AS people enjoy doing what they are good at it. Those that they work for know they are good at it and want to keep them doing what they are good at!

6.  Your visual center is not filtered. You see more all at the same time. You see full pictures not filtered ones. This can be helpfull on and off the job.

5.  You can present your side of an issue without resorting to making your opponent look bad!

4.  No waisting time chitchating about nothing in general. More time for them Special Intrests

3.  A large part of your brain that was used for chitchating and social ques is avalable for better things like all of your "Special Intersts"

2.  You can enjoy a Special interest for awhile and set it aside for another then return to it later and enjoy it again, even years later.

1.  You know you are something "Special" You are like meny other "great minds"

Top 10 why it sucks to be AS

10. NT's want you to take yucky medicine to make you well again. (mayby)

9.  At times What can be good can be bad ie Sensory overload. NT's just filter out stuff that might be important.

8.  NT's use tatics Like "Only children are Autistic" So we are suddenly cured at age 18??? Hmmm

7.  NT's want to sell you all kinds of Snake oil to make you better.  (Ya right!)

6.  NT's harrass us for stuff like rocking, hand flapping, In my case smoking. They do this while they tap there foot. Hmmm???

5.  If you try to speak for other ASD people. NTs become like political canadates and try to make you look bad. This seems to be a tactic used when they eather do not know what they are doing or saying, or when they know the person is right.

4.  If you tell a caring NT you are on the spectrum they fell bad for you.

3.  No NT's can beleve you when you say "It ain't to bad being on the spectrum"

2.  NT's try to brainwash us with there social ques and try to assimulate us in the NT! Hmmm - Assimulate This!

1.  Because we are a minority This is called a Disorder. Why is fighting and trying to make others hurt and fell bad just to be the leader of the pack concidered "Normal?"
