Autistic's guide to asking a girl out

Autistic's guide to asking a girl out Autistics.org has written a helpful set of instructions for autistics wanting to ask a girl out for a movie. I'm not sure if this is terribly interesting, but apparently the folks at memepool did. Plus, it humbled me so much that I felt deathly ill as I read it - that's got to be worth something, am I right or am I right?

What

What the....? Where's the punchline? I don't get it. Why, that's just plain disgusting! I can't *even* believe my eyes. Channeling the spirit of B1FF in the early morning. o<

Which Jerkcity Character are you?

Which Jerkcity Character are you? The personality test to end all others. PLUS: although it only has a few entries so far, rands' blog is looking really great. In case you didn't know, Jerkcity is a daily comic strip enjoyed by all the cool people on the internet, similar to the weekly Hotendotey or Sanscomic, (a comic strip by Ecco the cat, who "does anal") but with more mechanical production, more Perl/TCL jokes, and more references to hlauaghaghgah. Please note that you cannot be 1337 if you like RedMeat. This post is dedicated to Quonsar The Magnificent and all other truly 1337 mefiers willing to stand up for what is right. Remember: argument's are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Isreal! Palestine! Humour!

Isreal! Palestine! Humour! Rumproast.com gives you the real solution to these war weary people! My favorite is the "Freaky Friday Peace Plan". I believe it addresses mideast violence the best. Dear mideast violence. How are you? I am fine.

Palast: My only hope for the future of journalism is one word: the Internet.

Palast: My only hope for the future of journalism is one word: the Internet. This interview has everything! Condemnation of the president (in regard to current events, not just his family, and Nazi money, eugenics, insanity, etc.) and more importantly, condemnation of the press. We all know that the media strikes down important information, and that the state run BBC reports what our informers pass over silently. This article explains this phenomena, as well as the other member's of the Bin Laden family, why double pullitzer prize winners can't find work in the media, and of course, what we all know, that the internet promises an unmediated relationship between events and people. What? You don't care? Don't care how credible this guy is? Don't care about the race targeting database used to steal the election? Heard it before? Yeah, me too. Well, don't fret, there was a great link with lots of swearing earlier today. And one with Jackie Chan. o&lt;

A Refreshing Change of Pace for everyone with an opinion about Isreal/Palestine.

A Refreshing Change of Pace for everyone with an opinion about Isreal/Palestine. The Middle East Conflict - Has it Been Engineered by Extremist Rightwing Christians and Zionists Hoping to "Force" the "Rapture"? Sounds crazy, looks crazy...but the suggestions are not made on the basis of paranoia alone, unfortunately. The fact that the Americans involved are very religious (and Isreal being the location of a few scheduled divine appearances) is an obviously important but consistantly avoided side of this pile of conflict. So how crazy is this article? Isn't it just a bit naïve to think this is just a big property argument with some jewish/muslim tension thrown in? Hey, as long as we can't decide whether Arafat or Sharon is worse than the other, we may as well discuss something else in the meantime...or discuss something totally unrelated in this thread, for a refreshing change of pace.

Trolling

Trolling is a lot like flirting. It can be very hard to identify, and when the beloved perpetrator is confronted, he or she may become a little mushmouthed or downright rude. Nevertheless, many still adore these people and their craft, even if we are a bit afraid of them. And for those lucky, wonderful few, it's all just a game....*sigh*...

Really Good Haiku (in English!)

Really Good Haiku (in English!) Yes, some complain about the abundance of humerous haiku on the internet and otherwise (wherever that is), but the fact remains: we all love it, perhaps because it is so easy to do, but probably because it enriches our lives, like a really well made stone wall, or Sam Cooke. I have found some haiku which were actually written in english, about the sorts of things which we all like to laugh at. Enjoy them now!

A savior for my generation, finally (?)

A savior for my generation, finally (?) ANDREW W K = grunge - whining + innocence + rocking out something frightening + lust for life + humour + lots and lots of energy. Also keep in mind that I hate popular music. I think he's incredibly cool, and by incredibly cool I mean totally sweet. Anyway, my take is insignificant - what do you people think of this kid?? The cure for the Linkin' Park disease? The aural Creed ointment??

Got bad handwriting?

Got bad handwriting? Go back to where the nightmare started and learn to write all over again. Or, if that didn't work the first time, try some more advanced instruction. Perhaps you just want to adopt the handwriting of one of your idols. In that case, I'm way ahead of you. Remember - write with all your muscles, not just with your fingers.

Just who is Dean Stark?

Just who is Dean Stark? A legend of usenet? Some kind of monster? Or perhaps the victim of a huge conspiracy? The answer may shock you...
