asan-wa:

It’s that time again! Next weekend, Autism Speaks will be holding yet another fundraising walk at Seattle Center, and once again, the Washington chapter of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network will be on hand with leaflets and protest signs, to let everyone involved know that Autism Speaks is a…

Text reads: Fastratic / Fastracity | autism-specific emotion of the feeling that your brain and body are acting with their own will (normally in complex behavior, as opposed to stimming)



Typically associated with performance anxiety, this emotion is likely to suddenly kick in when it’s time to perform and suddenly drop out afterward. Similar to an “out-of-body experience” as described by neurotypicals.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
