Textbooks are fucking expensive, and if your professor doesn’t require a physical copy (most don’t - they just want you to have the book at hand. Or maybe even not. Some professors literally give no fucks…
The small segment about Autism is mind blowing. On the outside they look as if they’re mentally retarded but thy have these two adults living with Autism and they use typing to help express what they’re saying. They’re so articulate it’s crazy. Yeah I’m…
wow. so apparently i’m getting a lot of hate for this post (like a few reblogs and such). mostly about the mentally retarded thing. well, i work at a care home where i do work with mentally retarded clients. it’s the clinical term. the only reason why i said that “oh the outside they they look as if they’re mentally retarded” is because that’s basically what they said in the documentary even with the ones suffering from Autism said that they know that others think they’re mentally retarded. that’s the basic stereotype of those living with Autism. people think they’re retarded. I KNOW THAT THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING MENTALLY RETARDED AND BEING AUTISTIC. i’m not an idiot. i don’t treat the individuals any different. and “don’t become a behaviorist because you’re an ignorant asshole”? so how else do i become informed? ignorant people are those who don’t know anything. i’m learning. that’s why i’m studying. that’s why i want to learn about behaviorism. not because i think they’re animals or inhuman. it’s because they are human. i want to HELP THEM. i wasn’t aware that those with Autism could actually communicate that way, that’s why it’s mind blowing to me. and then someone said “fetishizing”? i’m not obsessed with this…i’m interested in it. it’s interesting because i think that there’s a client at the care home i work for who i think this might actually help. in her binder it says she suffers from severe mental retardation and everyone who knows her says she’s extremely smart so when i saw this i just figured “hey! this might help her. maybe they can change her info to Autism.”
anyways, this is a long explanation. if it still get’s hate then i don’t care. i’m trying to help these folks. i don’t see them as freaks. i treat them with respect, i treat them like normal people. i’ve lived with these people for half my life. i may not be informed as the rest of you, apparently, but mostly because the individuals i deal with do suffer from mental retardation not Autism. i don’t know any of the findings related to Autism. i doubt half the people who do work Autistics in care homes know that they can communicate this way.

Yeah I’m glad I’m going to be a behaviorist because this is something that’s blowing my mind right now. I want to write an essay on this shit.
A Fortune investigation reveals that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. How the world came to believe just the opposite is a tale of rivalry, murder, and political bloodlust.
By far the most thorough reporting I’ve seen on Fast and Furious. Worth a read if you’re trying to sort out what is and isn’t bullshit in the weeks to come.
I am deeply sorry for all my cursing and the Malocchio I sent your way. I was still hurt from the Juve of the past, the Juve that humiliated us in the last World Cup. You have truly proven me wrong, and while next Season in Serie A, I will most likely go back to my old cursing ways…. until then I shall light a candle for you at Church.
Side note, Balotelli… you go ahead and take your shirt off as much as you want…. just keep doing what you do.
There’s a possibility of explosion at my house right now. Not the one that can burn down a house. More like one that can end in possible divorce. See, normally people date each other first before getting married. Because, you know, thy need to know each other.
But whatever floats your boat.
