What the hell is this "autism" I keep hearing about, anyway? Is that just the new designer disorder label we slap on unruly brats we're too lazy to discipline properly?

It's something you get when the Conspiracy Serum Compound X-32 that's in all children's vaccines interacts with the morgellons that drift down onto the population from con-trails left by NAU planes.

It's remarkable he found parking.
 
2009-04-29 12:48:32 PM
He was trying to fly to Mexico to spread autism...

autism is real. adhd on the other hand.................. but god bless you if your family has to deal with autism. it's no joke.

Steal a car, fake a way onto a plane? Sounds like his id's in overdrive.
 
2009-04-29 12:49:03 PM
Did he also succeed in bringing his bottled water on board?

That would be ADHD. Austism is when a child CANNOT mentally socialise properly. Austism is a genetic disorder.
 
2009-04-29 12:49:21 PM
Yeah, but can he touch his tongue to his elbow?
 
2009-04-29 12:49:35 PM
yeah he would have gotten away with it if they didn't suspect him of being drunk
 
2009-04-29 12:49:44 PM
Was it a Qantas flight?
 
2009-04-29 12:49:48 PM
Balderdash. No way he found a parking space.
 
2009-04-29 12:50:00 PM
Did he stay at a Holiday Inn Express?

Does it spread like creamy or crunchy peanut butter? My wife and I were discussing this last night.
 
2009-04-29 12:50:41 PM
Subby, you had me going on that until I re read the headline. There's no way he could have found a parking spot.

No.

They say some autistics are savants at something. This one must be a savant traveller. Could probably hitch around the world.
 
2009-04-29 12:52:00 PM
He probably blended in with the TSA.

Hey it's Florida. You can't really label it as autism because aren't all the people that live in that state autistic in some way or another?
 
2009-04-29 12:53:22 PM
I won't know what to say about this until Jenny McCarthy makes a public statement.
 
2009-04-29 12:53:22 PM
did anyone mention how unlikely it is he found parking?

Let him fly the plane man, he's an excellent driver.
 
2009-04-29 12:54:01 PM
Did he have his ego?

Taught him everything he knows:

FTA: "I immediately knew. I didn't know how far he'd drive, because he hadn't driven before. I was so afraid he was going to hurt someone else with the car," Weaver said. "Was he on a bus? On a plane?"

The car turned up on the third level of the airport parking garage, without a scratch.


Chances are, his family never really watched this kid if a 13 year old could pull that off.

That would be ADHD. Austism is when a child CANNOT mentally socialise properly. Austism is a genetic disorder.


Actually, it's more complicated than that:

No Myths

Also, to quote an earlier post of mine:

It's important to keep in mind that a "set of similar symptoms" does not necessarily mean that everything should be classified under one umbrella label of autism. Psychological symptoms are even more subjective to opinion, as they are considered unwanted behavioral traits because of negative social consequences (grating against social norms), and not necessarily negative traits from an evolutionary standpoint.

Consider our society, rising in technology and becoming more automated (think of the root "aut"-- shared in bothe the word automated and autism) and interpersonal connections becoming more and more quick emails/texts to a friend rather than a face to face converstation requiring good use of body language and eye contact. More and more, autistics (and those with related "disorders") are finding communication easier, and are connecting with people in ways that are more friendly to their neurotype. The rise of the internet is one factor, but there are others. The environment is becoming less unfriendly to the gene pool that possesses these traits. Granted we have a better understanding of them, thus better recognition in the medical community, but I think evolution hasn't ruled us out because we serve a purpose in this new world of technology. This isn't to say that all of us are tech geeks. To the contrary, we possess a variety of skills. It's just to say that from the interpersonal relations standpoint, our quirks are nurtured by an environment that has become less personal.

So for those of us Aspies/HF Autistics who manage to muddle our way through the NT world, a good amount of us pass on our ways to the next generation. Those who are functionally so different that they need constant assistance may not fare so well from a natural selection standpoint, but that doesn't mean that their lives don't have something to offer and teach us about the neurological structure of "spectrumites", as I so affectionately refer to my "kind". Education, compassion, and integration are essential to both the NT and the NA. After all, if we try to cure something just because its different, we could potentially erase great minds like Albert Einstein in the process. Can we honestly say without a doubt that the presence of a set of genes dictates how neuroatypical a person would be, or is the only way to find out letting them grow to their full potential?

Those in favor of eugenics need to re-evaluate your humanity. Me, my husband, and my kids (we're all on the spectrum) are doing just fine and not making excuses for ourselves, rather educating ourselves on why we think the way we think and how to better present ourselves in the company of those who have the opposite type of brain wiring. My husband puts it this way: "It's like life is a poker game, and we play to the best of our ability considering we were given cards from an UNO deck."

Hey, when I was growing up we called kids like this SLOOOOOOOW.

Now with this new age of politial correctness, we have all sorts of funny, hard to spell disorder names...for ironically...funny, hard to understand...disorderly children!

WTF, first his Dad is like "I want him to stay down there because I can't control him" and he stayed with his uncle and not his mother down there? It sounds like these people are farkheads.

It also sounds like this kid is not autistic, it says he has aspergers, but I hear aspergers is as fake as adhd.
 
2009-04-29 12:57:33 PM
Autisms on a plane?

Too many people were trying to lick him to prevent swine flu.

Seriously this kid has astounding success rates with everything he attempted! And why the hell does he not have any I.D.'s knowing he has a history of running off?

He's an aspie, meaning he just acts like an ill-socialized farktard whenever it will get him attention.

The 13-year-old doesn't have a passport, driver license or any photo ID his father knows of, so how'd he get past airport security?

"Security" was busy measuring bottles of hand lotion to ensure they were below 4oz. "Security" was busy taking the shoes off of an 86 year old grandmother. "Security" was busy patting down infants for explosive devices.

AKA: Security theatre.
 
2009-04-29 01:05:30 PM
Thats fine homeland security there Lou.

The old exploding child trick works every time.
 
2009-04-29 01:05:37 PM
Autism is real.
"Asperger's Syndrome" is not.

I put this in the Sarah Jessica Parker thread but I think its relevant here before people start talking about how vaccinations are teh evil.

Just because women having kids in their 40s doesn't mean its a good idea. It can lead to health risks for the mother and the baby and it also explains the rise in autism. Families are blaming the vaccinations but if you notice, women are more career oriented these days than they were before. Because of that they're waiting longer to have children and that parallels with the increase in autism in the past few years as opposed to a few decades ago when women started having kids in their 20s or early 30s and autism was never even heard of. That's not to say autism wasn't around because it most certainly was, but it definitely was not at the levels it is in now.

/tired of listening to Jenny McCarthy biatching about vaccinations
//thanks to dumbass parents the mumps and measles are making a comeback.
///stop trying to make babies when you're 40
