in reply to PerlMonks - my haven of calmness and sanity

Well, yeah, welcome to the club? I've never been diagnosed, but for me, all of the signposts are there .. mis-reading social situations (I won't bore you with all of the examples), not realizing I'm talking too much, focusing too much, not focusing enough, occasional OCD, etc, etc. Strangely, I'm fine at Perl conferences and at Perlmonger meetings because I just assume everyone else is on the spectrum with me, and I'm way more open to talking to someone sitting next to me.

Thanks for your post. I can assure you, you are not alone in this. :) And, yup, Perlmonks is an oasis.

Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

    Now, is the glass half full or half empty?

    Either you could assume you took the blue pill into the Perl community, or that most outside geek-sphere are running a preview of Idiocracy.

      Now, is the glass half full or half empty?

      In the case of "half empty", it's also important to hope that it's not a sudden case of Randall Munroe

      perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'
