• I thought the libs during the RayGun era said we must avoid WW2 nuclear war at all costs..so what happened to that mantra? was it fake?

    Best answer: That's a tough question to answer.

    The economy is doing surprisingly well given that it usually doesn't under Republican administrations. I can't say how much of this is riding on the coat tails of Obama and how much of is actually Trump, but at least on the surface Trump appears to be doing well on this front. But even if he wasn't, recovering from an economic slump would be relatively easy.

    Social progress has taken a hit and will continue to do so, especially now that Trump has the power to change the composition of the Supreme Court. But I'm not too worried. Every attack against social progress has a strong backlash. People are fighting back. Women are fighting against rape and sexual harassment with the Metoo movement. Blacks are fighting social inequalities (especially at the hand of law enforcement) with Black Lives Matter. Hispanics, Muslims, Gays, and other minorities are also fighting their battles. It's almost like we are in the late 60s all over again.

    What worries me is Climate Change. The Trump administration is actively trying to stagnate and undo the progress that has been made on this front. And while there people fighting for climate change it doesn't seem to be as big a concern for people as social injustices are. That's just human nature; we tend to focus on problems that have an immediate, obvious, and direct impact on us. However, climate change is much more serious problem than a struggling economy or social injustice. And unlike the damage done to the economy or to social progress, the damage done on the climate change front is going to much harder to fix (if it can be fixed at all). The harm being done to the environment could impact us for decades or even centuries.

    We really shot ourselves in the foot with this. Nothing to do now but keep fighting and cross your fingers with the hope that we can still fix things.

  • Can dyslexia be ruled out if: I am a great writer, don't struggle with spelling (usually), and I'm good at math. (There's more)?

    Here's the thing: I couldn't find specific answers to my questions via a google search, therefore this was my next stop.

    Here's the thing: I couldn't find specific answers to my questions via a google search, therefore this was my next stop. PLEASE only respond if you have had experience with dyslexia/learning disabilities. I DO in fact know that you cannot "diagnose" me, and clearly, I need to be screened by a doctor for a proper diagnosis, etc. With that being said, what I WOULD like to know is if the possibility for dyslexia to be RULED OUT. When I LOOK at a reading that is long and dense, I become overwhelmed...even anxious, possibly. My brain feels mental fatigue to the point that I can't even bring myself to read. I do not experience jumbling words/letters/numbers tho. When I do force myself to read (when able), often, I am consumed by excessive sleepiness and tend to be unable to further read without a nap. I often (not always) poorly interpret ideas from the reading, even in the rare instances when I CAN pay close attention enough to remember what I just read, and when I do not fall asleep reading. Basically, I find many ideas often times very ambiguous, and struggle to decide the correct idea intended to be conveyed. I am a super strong writer. I go to UC Berkeley and get A's in all of my upper division papers. I do not have trouble spelling (usually)/identifying words, or punctuation. I am particularly strong at math and physics (I'm a physics major, and I love it because the readings required are less dense, and because I can interactively engage by working through problems).

  • Does having autism give me an intellectual advantage over normal people?

    Just wondering, because many people say that autistic people have slightly higher intellect than normal people (Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc.). Is it really worth having that intellectual edge over non-autistic people for not being able to get laid?
