Katrina Missing Children, The Saudis & Bush

Jeremiah Cornelius (137) writes | about a year ago

The Matrix 4

"After the tsunami there was great concern that many of the children left without families due to that disaster had disappeared into Asian, Middle Eastern sex trade rings."

Why bring this up, after 8 years?

Mixed up disasters? (1)

What does the tsunami have to do with W Bush herding a bunch of black people into a football stadium?

OT, that's a great sig. My oldest daughter, who was misdiagnosed all her life, is autistic. She has an eidetic memory that astounds everyone who knows her, she has very good problem solving abilities, but she scores low enough on an IQ test she's eligible for SSI. Before puberty she could predict the weather with near perfect accuracy; she'd say "it's going to rain tomorrow." If you asked "what time?" she'd say 2:00, and the next day it would rain sometime between 1:30 and 2:30. Nobody had a clue how she did it, not even her (or perhaps she didn't know how to communicate it).

At six months old when she met someone new she'd wave and say "hi" but otherwise was very late talking. She never did crawl, she rolled everywhere she wanted to go until she started walking at the normal age.

Most definitely a different OS.

I was misdiagnosed until I was 30.

Since then I've been working very hard on my social skills.

I'm sure I have a mild form of Asperger's, but the kind of weird I was didn't make me unpopular. For instance, in the 6th grade I made a doofus detector out of a reed switch, flashlight bulb, battery, a box made from a soda can, and a ring with a magnet glued to it. It would only go off when the teacher said something, everybody laughed hysterically except the teacher, who confiscated it when she finally figured out what all the kids were laughing at.

I almost got expelled in the seventh grade. I'd made what a book said was a hydrogen balloon. A tiny one would burn with a meter wide fireball, so I took one to school to ask the science teacher why it wouldn't float. I got out of it, though. The rest of the year all the kids talked about how that crazy mcgrew brought a hydrogen bomb to school.
