    Hi Occy

    Have you done the geek test or the RDOS test? I'm thinking Aspergers shade of Autistic. But it is hard to pick in adults. The directness of comment would be a trait. But it takes more than just that. I posted links for the quizes (quizi?) somewhere here before but I can post them again if you're interested.

    The way you describe how you think is typical of a very intelligent person with Aspergers - which would include most of our best scientists, engineers and medical researchers. Leaving a trail of offended people is also typical, and I'd argue that it's a personal choice about what one finds offensive. But that isn't how the offended person sees it usually.

    I'm not surprised that you spend a lot of time with people of various disabilities and many of you would find the comment funny. It's a bit like what Steady Eddie finds funny. Or the kinds of jokes that USA citizens of African descent find funny but no white person would get away with telling.

    The most offensive revolting jokes I know - come from paramedics, the ones who have to scrape up humans off the road and bring them back for attempted repair.

    Fine Occy, I take it that is towards me...Ignorance suits you, and I hope you enjoy your lonliness. I'm done trying. Next time a 'friend' dies on you....go share it with those who care, because your attitude completely SUX here.
    Give nothing...expect nothing in return.
    I'm NO saint..FFS, I gave you sympathy when you wanted it...my mistake.

    It's time for Occy to find another forum..she's obviously the ODD one out.
    Anyone who knows where she teaches...should pass on her inability to participate in public in a propper manner. Disgraceful.

    that's right.. but not anymore.. it's now an insult and I found the crass "joke" to be of more than just politically wrong, but offensive and heartless to any member who may stumble across it who has a disability or more so, that achieved a medal in the special Olympics.

    I bet no-one here could win a medal in the Olympics.. special or not.

    That's cause the paramedics need to do something to take their mind of the horror they see daily.

    I don't think I have asperger's simply because I have a hightened sense of empathy (scoff as you may). I wouldn't be able to do my job well if I didn't.

    Perhaps people would get along better if you didn't feel the urge to reply to people's posts when you clearly don't like then.. with insults about their knowledge or capabilities.

    But that should be for all members Pugger.

    Hi Occy

    A heightened sense of empathy would probably rule you out.

    But you don't display much empathy in here.

    I agree with why paramedics make the jokes they do. It's also why disaster jokes are so quick to appear.

    Occy IS heartless...nothing more to say on the matter.

    Chops - why do you have to quote people I have blocked LOL. I have made comment on only one persons knowledge and I can back it up in a court of law if I needed to. Not one of them could back up the foul remarks made regarding my profession.

    yes read the sentence directly under that one Choppa

    If Occy believe she is empathetic then perhaps there is a communication barrier because of the internet..who knows.. but her barrier seems to stand out more than others here,.. go figure.
