Once I was focusing so hard on finding the postbox that I walked straight past it five times without seeing it at all! Then when i went to get groceries and de-focused, I was surprised to see this postbox in front of me as I walked out of the shop. Hey, that wasn't there when I went in! XD

Yeah, that's me. I can see the little things, but sometimes miss the bigger picture. Also, for some reason I have a hard time finding things that people tell me to look at and miss it, but can find a dead light bulb on a 500+ light Christmas tree in a second!

The witty humor in these strips is now becoming more abound.

Thank you!

I'm glad the new format is working.  I do miss doing some of the satirical humor, but I'm enjoying the challenge of turning my experiences with having ASD (and perhaps OCD and Anxiety) into something that others that have it can nod their head to, something that folks that don't have it can learn something from, and something that everyone can get a laugh out of.

Again, thankies for the feedback on it!  Changing the type of humor was a big, scary leap, and I was worried if it would work out or not.  Seems to be working out better than the last one.  ^^

was discovered a few weeks ago that i have asperger autism, and while i have this "Hyperfocus" as far as i remember i never had Problems understanding sarcasm,

still, i was always different, as my mother always said, i looked up what most people with asperger autism had, and i've got most of it.

What's tunnel vision?

mdchan Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013  Professional Artist
Medically, it's the loss of peripheral vision.

It can also mean only seeing things from your point of view, or seeing just a part of a larger picture.

Thanks, but I'm okay.  ^^

The whole point of this new "season" of AuTalkz is me taking my experiences with autism and turning them into something positive and-or funny.

I have to wonder if such a laser focus could not be a useful research talent.
Reply
:iconmdchan:
mdchan Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013  Professional Artist
Definitely.  I still remember all the research I put into the extinction of the dinosaurs over 15 years ago (my theory became a combination of natural disasters, as the elements found in meteorites was also found in many dinosaur fossils in the late Cretaceous period; which means that there were perhaps either a huge impact or a smaller impact, which could also trigger earthquakes, which would then trigger volcanic eruptions...and with all that combined, an ice age as the changes on the surface would effect the weather, and in some places, block the sunlight.  The dinosaurs that didn't perish in all of that evolved in order to adapt to their colder environment; a combination of evolution and natural events).

I wanted to go into paleontology when I was younger, but was discouraged from doing so by my folks (who said that there weren't many job opportunities involved in it).

Same here. But as an adult I'm finding my problem is with terms that are very vague and everyone seems to think people are born knowing what they mean. Espically the term "study". What exactly does one do when they "study"? Unless you people tell me, you might as well be speaking another language. My parents (and just about everyone else) seem to expect me to already know what it means and what specific actions I'm supposed to be doing when told to go "study".  Sure, right after I'm done with my "bartle-doo" lessons.

"Study" for me always meant "memorize stuff"...especially the night before the test and the morning of, so that the information is fresh in my mind in order to regurgitate it onto the test and promptly forget it afterward.

So glad I graduated and don't have to do that anymore.  XD

The stuff I always had problems with were the proverbs that were sort of "out there".  For example, "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush".  It was explained to me once recently, but I still can't seem to comprehend what the heck it means.

..."bartle-doo"...?

www.youtube.com/watch?v=dN2g_E… www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-0zVz… www.youtube.com/watch?v=6S7zwX…    I got the term "bartle-doo" from Ed Bassmaster on YouTube who makes prank phone calls and sometimes goes out in public as his character "Mumbles". Mumbles is a cowboy with a speech impediment.  His catch phrase is "bartle-doo".  I just use it or make up some other random gibberish to describe things that are vague to me to get across to the other person that they might as well tell be to go "bartle-doo" or "lafifagig" to illustrate to them that unless they specifically tell me what actions I need to do, their words are gibberish to me.
