Potemkin pier collapses -- what better metaphor for a failed state?

"Strong waves break up US military’s" Gaza pier.

The US effort "has collapsed after strong waves broke up a temporary pier that took $320m dollars & 1,000 US soldiers to construct". It lasted just over a week.

"The Pentagon says it will replace the pier but it is unclear when."

@DrALJONES What part of the cost to build it is a big fat lie?

@DrALJONES What part of my question is confusing? $320m? Would a Potemkin cost that much?

@actuallyautistic #actuallyautistic Anyone ever tell you that you were being "too negative" or a "Debby downer" when stating facts about something? Just happened to me earlier with my family. In this case it was reasons why I prefer not to travel often (routine change haha). The whole time I was thinking, "but I'm not trying to be negative..."

@chevalier26 I truly can't see a problem with planning for any possible contingency. I butted heads often with my Dad, because he was reactionary and I'm precautionary. @actuallyautistic

No accurate figures so it's up to the brilliance of @mike_honey_ @dbRaevn & a few others to estimate what's going on.

This suggests that over 1 million people have C0VID in Oz right now, & that almost half of the entire population has had C0VID in the last 6 months. These numbers are extraordinary.

@burningbird They're not really far-right. They're of the same mindset as Yahu's Government, the IDF, the majority of Israelis...and Israel's major supplier of weapons. Would WaPo class Democrats as Far Right? Are they even prepared to stigmatise the Republicans as being Far Right Trumpist MAGAts?

What are your thoughts on self-diagnosis being belittled by many in the autistic community?

For clarity, I’m not asking to start a debate, just a genuine discussion. I currently don’t have the option to get a diagnosis, but feel fairly confident that the research I’ve done over the past year and a half has been legitimate and credible.

I don’t feel comfortable saying that I am definitively autistic, but I am ok with saying I’m “self-suspecting.” @actuallyautistic

Tooden,
@Tooden@aus.social avatar

@chevalier26 As a very late realised , I want to add my reassurances about self-discovery vs formal diagnosis. A majority of Autists have their informal diagnosis confirmed if/when they go through the formal assessment.
I'm not sure what the gatekeepers expect to gain from their actions. @actuallyautistic

Is there a term in the autistic world for "outing" someone? In the gay world we have often very accurate "gaydar".

I was watching a mom and son on a television show. On one hand I want to talk about them and their interaction, but on the other hand I don't feel right about "diagnosing" them, particularly in a public way.

Finally dried after blocking... cotton-wool blend, and a lot of rain this week, so it feels like it took forever.

Will finishing the ends, and then wear it to work tomorrow ❤️

The bottom hem seems to be okay after blocking, no rolling up (yet..?)

I cannot get over how many times in recent years the Washington Post had to decide not to share that they knew the Alito household flew an upside-down flag in the immediate aftermath of Jan 6 before reporting it today. https://www.lawdork.com/p/washington-post-bombshell-washington

I’ve been reading about “stimming in autism”, which up until now was very confusing to me mostly because that’s the one point kept being repeated in the community being a must for an autistic individual. And I can’t relate to that at all.

Then I came across something that describes the purpose of ‘stimming’ is to deal with extra energy. Then it kinda hit me, I’ve never had the need to stim because I’m a low energy person in general.

I get overwhelmed with activities when they involve raising heart rates (yes, THAT too). I like quiet things, dead of night etc. Once at a time in my life, I was pretty sure I could hear flow of electricity.

So my question to the community: do you think stimming is a must for autistic people? Do you relate to it? Anyone know of any low energy stimming that gets overlooked?

Thanks! Much love!! 💕 @actuallyautistic

Tooden,
@Tooden@aus.social avatar

@farah Stimming is also a self-soothing activity...especially in stressful situations. If you don't need it, it doesn't make you less autistic, afaik. Mine are mostly unobtrusive, thus unnoticeable, now. I used to chew my nails. I used to smoke cigarettes. @actuallyautistic

Housing prices today are absolute nuts; in 2003 our apartment cost less than half of the median unit price in Melbourne today. God knows how we'd buy a place nowadays on freelance incomes. Way past time for government to remove property investor tax incentives.

@timrichards I fail to see how it can benefit the ones who are doing this, in the long run. Bunch of Nottingham Sheriffs. What will they do for kicks when they have priced everyone - including themselves - out of the market?
