Your Aspie score: 63 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 152 of 200
You are very likely neurotypical

Anyone else remember the great "No, I've got Aspergers'" wars on /. Essentially everyone is trying to prove to everyone else how their unwillingness to learn proper social mores means they're going to become an über-genius like Rain Man or some shit. [Do not get me wrong, I'm sure there were some people posting who are genuine sufferers of this condition, but I got the impression like many were treating Aspergers' like it was some kind of geek badge of honor.]

Not commenting on the slash-dot stuff, because, well, I have no idea. But I'm me, so I kind of want to take this quiz thing. Where is it?

The plot is now a clickable link to the quiz. I took it over the weekend and never got around to posting it...

Heh, I never read slashdot... but I found my score to be slightly disturbing. Especially since I've only heard references to Aspergers without ever actually knowing about it myself.

Interesting that I'm apparently 50/50 on the line, only slightly more neurotypical. 110 vs. 125... weird.

I never realized that war ever ended. Today's society is all about making excuses for the inability to behave in a socially acceptable fashion and learn (anything), along with giving parents who don't want the responsibility of raising kids a pass when they don't do shit about their kids problems and behaviors.

I am going to now post a rant in my LJ. I kept writing, and it kept getting longer and longer. :)

Well, the reason I used the past tense is I just stopped reading /., mostly. I was into digg for a while, but that was just /. with worse potty humor (amazingly enough, it is possible). I mean, I've read things on 4chan that were cleaner and more sensical than the shit on digg.
