    I know that a huge percentage of human communication is trivial, neanderthal posturing and talking for the sake of talking .People who will never "get together" flirting for the hell of it, a lot of talk about the weather etc. From a purely intellectual point of view it doesn't make much sense. I think that's part of why some of us like it here, the fluff is there when you want it but most of the time we just talk real issues and a little smack.

    Perhaps I have never changed anyone's mind. But at least reading other's outrageous opinions and arguing against them gives me Adrenaline. It gives me more Adrenaline then playing Runescape.

    Perhaps arguing is a harmful habit. But the health damage is an order of magnitude less then damage done by Alcohol, Tobacco, and illegal drugs.
    Arguing online is not really the actions of an adrenaline junky.

    Maybe I don't use proud as you do. I'm not snarking you but I don't get the proud thing.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    If arguing on an Internet forum gives you an adrenalin rush, you have a problem.

    Thank you for sharing!

    In normal world being Autistic is an impairment.

    For artists and writers being Autistic is a huge bonus. I wanted to be a writer.

    Thank you very much.

    In USA there are 44 million adults with mental disability.

    Thank G-d I do not have a severe mental disability -- like 10 million adults in USA.

    It is a stronger rush then playing Runescape.

    It is less destructive then drugs -- which I have never tried.

    Stronger emotions can be obtained by drugs -- that is not something I will ever try.
