all my best friends are autistic

all my best friends are my best friends because we click on a mental-understanding level

hhhHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM no just a coincidence i’m totally 9001% neurotypical yeah totally -nodnodnodnodnod-

(sarcasm is fun)

it’s over 9000, eh?

^^

but of course

that was an entirely deliberate choice of number because i think it’s funny when people, including myself, use outdated memes

also because it’s one of those numbers where it’s probably immediately obvious that it’s a joke

i mean i still included the parenthetical because i’m dealing with my fellow autistic people here and there are some who don’t understand sarcasm at all and i don’t wanna be mean

but i like sarcasm, so i use it. and then point it out. and then feel excessively clever.

whirling-ghost:

I’m so over stimulated and I have no idea why. That word doesn’t even seem appropriate because it was the clicking noise from two iphones that set me off. 
I really don’t want this to get any worse

iphone clicky noises are the devil and the reason why i never have my phone off vibrate if i can help it, so overstimulated is totally the right word in my book

i get overstimulated more easily by sometimes innocuous things if there are already things taxing my systems. stress, hunger, tiredness, sickness… any of those bothering you?

also, if you’re not okay with a random stranger arsing about reblogging your personal posts with unsolicited advice, just say the word and i’ll bugger off

all my best friends are autistic

all my best friends are my best friends because we click on a mental-understanding level

hhhHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM no just a coincidence i’m totally 9001% neurotypical yeah totally -nodnodnodnodnod-

(sarcasm is fun)

85% woman
10% amorphous shrieking hole into the void
5% “gender is a ridiculous meatbag hobby”
100% tired

ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO: Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs. Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling. This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.

consider this: 

thor is always running into little kids who are thrilled to meet him - he doesn’t really understand the concept of signing autographs, but he starts carrying asgardian toys around in his pockets to give to kids he meets (much to shield’s chagrin - how are we supposed to keep alien tech under control when the god of thunder is giving out magnetic propulsion toys to five-year-olds?) 

but one day, he meets this girl who’s nine, maybe ten, and she runs up to him all misty-eyed and immediately asks him if he knows jane foster

and her mother’s embarrassed because “honey, that’s thor, aren’t you excited to see thor?” but the girl just explains that she wants to be a scientist when she grows up, and that jane foster is the astrophysicist (she pronounces the word carefully, as if she’s been practicing) who found out how the rainbow bridge worked - isn’t that so cool? she read about it in kids discover and they watched a documentary in school and dr. foster was in it and it made her think that maybe because she likes planets so much she could be a scientist, too 

and thor smiles broadly and tells her that wanting to be a scientist is a noble dream, and he says “if your mother would be willing, i could introduce you” 

and that’s how jane foster ends up with a tiny science geek in pigtails trailing around behind her in her lab, asking how everything works. jane can’t really comprehend the fact that a kid would want to meet her, but she likes explaining things and she looks at this girl and can’t help seeing herself. thor is just fucking delighted because to him the idea of jane being a child’s hero makes perfect sense, why wouldn’t it? she’s jane

and years later the girl grows up to be an astrophysicist or an astronaut or an aerospace engineer and she never forgets the time that dr. jane foster knelt down beside her and said, don’t let anybody stop you from chasing the stars, if that’s what you want 

jane foster inspiring girls in science, y/y

I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Notice she says “who” it was and not “what” it was.

Oh I just gotta snuggle my baby bear!

Smell will bring back a memory you thought you’d forgotten sooner than almost any other sense…
