Ladyhawke (Phillipa Brown) is the reason I found out that I have Asperger's I heard some of her music on Youtube, I think. I really liked it so I read her bio on Wikipedia. When it mentioned she had Asperger's I thought, "What exactly is Asperger's anyway?" When I started reading articles on Asperger's it was like "Hey, that's the story of my life. That's why I've been so socially awkward my whole life (not to mention other symptoms and comorbidities). I just thought I'd share that little story.

[quote="Xenu"]So I was watching Jay Leno yesterday (was a recording of the night befores) and John C. Reily was on. Now watching him in movies I wouldn't really think Aspergers really. But in this interview I was shocked at how Aspie he seemed. He gave almost no eye contact and when he did it felt forced, he spoke in a very loud and monotone voice and kind of rambled/went on and on about some things and didn't really no how to carry the conversation. and he also does weird things with his hands.

Here is the interview

What do you guys think?

He does fit quite a few of the criteria. It is almost obviously well known Ted Bundy had aspergers.

From what I have read he was great at giving speeches but was said to be terrible in one on one conversations. I had an obsession with him a while back and read the biography written by a friend of his as well as all kinds of other things about him.

Siobhan Magnus’ numbers game
by pinella

When asked about her 6th-place finish … you can judge for yourself.

“At least it’s an even number I really like even numbers. And 15 (she was born on March 15th) is cool because 15 is 3 fives. I have a thing about numbers. I super-analyze numbers. Fifteen is fun. Like it’s fives. You know when you are turning up or down the volume on the TV … I always put the volume on an even number or on five.”


I do the same thing...

Sounds kind of like OCD.

Is it an OCD thing? Or an Aspie thing?

I actually do have mild OCD but my dad has OCD worse and he doesn't do such a thing.
