Watubi: Don't modern printers leave self identifying marks just for this kind of thing?

Chach: Should be interesting seeing the Farkers who are head over heels in love with abortion try to keep a straight face while talking about how this imperfect human being is entitled to his dignity.

DubtodaIll: Keeve: Usurper4: Keeve: DubtodaIll: This doesn't come close to the a-hole threshold. Stress is a biatch and makes you do biatchy things. Put the kid in a soundproof kid-sized hamster ball and be done with it.What an a$$hole thing to say. As a parent of two children I will have you know that after reading "Put the kid in a soundproof kid-sized hamster ball", I have spent the last 2 hours scouring the internet in search of soundproof kid-sized hamster balls. They don't make them. I couldn't even find anywhere to have one custom made. I found something very similar that is inflatable, but does not offer soundproofing. Not good enough. Thanks for getting my hopes up jerk!Am I the only one who thinks we need to get a Kickstarter going?The big hurdle is that everyone keeps getting all pissy if you don't put air-holes in it for ventilation. Kind of defeats the purpose of sound-proofing.There's probably a way around this, kinda like a Zoorb except instead of bungies between the inner sphere and outer sphere put in sound absorbing foam. That would probably work well enough, and hey at that point, you wouldnt even have to LOOK at them.
bluefoxicy: Let's drive this home: Gay people won't just walk up to you and pull their dick out. Autistic people essentially do just that, in every possible way. Some of them even do exactly that--in some cases, an inability to express sexual desires or understand common etiquette leads to either yanking their dicks out to show someone they're attracted to or attempt to mate, or pull it out to masturbate, or just to take a piss. I've worked in retail and had days where mid-20s autistics would piss or shiat in the aisles while shopping with their handlers, so that's actually a real thing. "UH OHHHH GOTTA TAKE A DOOKIE!!! *shiats right here*"
pute kisses like a man: i have left anonymous letters for neighbors whose dogs bark constantly. some barking i can deal with, but nonstop barking for hours long episodes really grinds my gears.
Dr Dreidel: "Nobody" wants to be around lots of types of people - gays, Republicans, busybodies, salsa-music-lovers, drunk-with-power HOA members, old/bad drivers, politicians, negroes, McMansion-owners, communists, college students, hipsters, creationists, Democrats, crackers, the poor, priests, plumbers, alcoholics, BASE jumpers...
Hankie Fest: But why is being offended the END OF THE FARKING WORLD? So what?
Kibbler: thismomentinblackhistory: What kind of sounds is he possibly making?I am not even remotely defending the woman who sent this note, but I know what kinds of noises he makes. On our last vacation, there was an autistic kid there. One afternoon of lounging by the pool was ruined. His dad was in the pool with him, and so they invented some kind of game. It involved the kid repeating, "Barracuda...barracuda...barracuda..." and then he screamed as loud as he possibly could. Five times. Ten times. A hundred times. Two hundred times. It went on for hour after hour. It was clear that this not an obnoxious brat, this kid was autistic. No ordinary kid would have done something that many times. He might have found other ways to be irritating, but he would have grown bored with just one thing. The kid never spoke another word that I was aware of, either...just "barracuda."On the same vacation, we went on a whale-watching trip, and there was a young autistic man with is family. He whistled. I mean, he whistled incredibly loudly. The same few notes. Again and again and again, for hours. Even at a distance of 30 feet, it made you wince. Once we were out on the water, we could maintain enough distance, and there was also a fair amount of ambient noise, so that it wasn't as noticeable. But you could still hear him. I also have a profoundly autistic niece. She can be perfectly peaceful for a long time, and then the slightest thing will set her off, and she emits this piercing howl that sounds like something out of a horror movie. And that might last a few seconds, or it might last an hour. And here's the sad part--that's the least of her problems. (As if that weren't enough, she was at the school in Sandy Hook when the shooting happened. In fact, she was grabbed out of the hallway by a teacher, or she probably would have been killed. The killer got to the room next to the one she was in.)To repeat, I'm not defending this woman (she would have made a great Nazi), but I know how painful it can be to spend time around an autistic person who makes repetitive, loud noises for several consecutive hours. It's unnerving. Autism sucks.
brantgoose: There is no a-hole threshold.There's only the singularity. Haven't you people read any Stephen Hawkins on the theory of a-holes? The only question is whether the singularity is a mathematical point or a sort of curve like the tip of a crayon or a dull pencil.
Keeve: What an a$$hole thing to say. As a parent of two children I will have you know that after reading "Put the kid in a soundproof kid-sized hamster ball", I have spent the last 2 hours scouring the internet in search of soundproof kid-sized hamster balls. They don't make them.

Warlordtrooper: I hope somebody outs this idiot.
Contrabulous Flabtraption: What did they do with autistic kids in the 1950s? Whatever it was, we should return to doing that.
molineskytown: Won't someone please address the ongoing problem we have in America regarding overpunctualization????????????????????????????????????
groppet: Years ago when before I bought my home I lived in an apt that was an older building that had thick walls and thick metal doors. I hardly ever heard a peep. The only neighbors I heard were the 7 guys that lived in the efficiancy below me that would blare spanish techno and the autistic kid down the hall that would scream from 8 to 8. The only time it ever bugged me was when I was hungover but I wouldnt send a letter.
Slaves2Darkness: Meh, pink paper, badly written, this looks fake. I'm betting the mother sent it to herself to get attention and/or donations.
