THis episode may be one more that goes all over the map... In general however, I made it with a focus in mind on the "feedback" that I've gotten over 30 years of my adult lifetime via my interactions with others, both socially and at work. I think I got carried away a bit with differing topics here, one of which is due to the fact that I'm still facing some strong emotions from recalling the very gut wrenching feelings of jealousy that came through loud and clear from Elliot Roger's videos and manifesto. (Please note: I am not whatsoever homicidal as Elliot Roger ended up being, nor do I expect I ever would be.)

As I mention in this episode midway through - if you are under 50, please proceed with caution. There are some vulgarities that I've included, in the form of musical snippets inserted into the podcast. These snippets are highly relevant to at least one major element of feedback that I received from a long time, casual friend who I woudl see nearly every day at a local pub in DC. The vulgarity in the music is representative of the type of stuff I have always found entertaining and funny and unique, but which others have most likely judged me on and eventually made a point of not associating with me anywhere near as much as they originally did, if at all.

Some additional random tidbits are below:

-- A great video out of Houston TX, of a June 2014 llecture by a woman with Aspergers called "Life as an Adult with Asperger's Syndrome". Here's the link:


-- a new book just came out in August 2014 that discusses Aspergers and adulthood:

Getting a Life with Asperger's: Lessons Learned on the Bumpy Road to Adulthood by Jesse A. Saperstein
