Does this study show that autistic people feel fear in response to the same scents that make allistic people feel calm... or does it show that our calm response appears on measuring devices (that are calibrated for allistics) as fear?

My mum told me that as a kid she had a hamster called Mavis Bijou. What the fuck, that's an amazing name for a hamster.

Have discovered I have 2 Waterstones accounts. Will have to try consolidating them somehow.

Piss-soaked pants that foam and fizz
Shoes like dead pigs' noses
Bum fulla trichinosis
That's your dad, that is!

I really want a kitty cat! (Not in a terrarium, though, that would be silly.) The main thing putting me off is that I've got nowhere to install a catflap. I want the cat to be able to go outside and have a crap instead of filling my home with a miasma of cronk.

Hmm, it seems most species of hobby cockroaches need a warmer environment than my home normally is. I don't really want to get heat lamps and pads and things because that defeats the purpose of having a low-maintenance pet.

American cockroaches do fine as long as it's above 4°C, but it might be harder to get permission to keep them, because if they escape they'll happily invade the neighbours' homes. Tropical cockroaches would just die.

I think I will get a terrarium with an aim to making it habitable for domino cockroaches. If I don't get permission from the housing association to keep a creature, I'll keep it just as a plant terrarium.

Hippos are just Guinea pigs who have never had a shit and have become colossal and tumescent with turds.

Calling an oyster character 'Pearl' is like calling a human character 'Gallstone'.

I think my most Boomer tech opinion is that Discord is dogshit and I hate it. It's like a weird version of IRC and a vastly inferior version of forums in one.

@leemccat Weeing because there's less cleanup, and if there's no toilet nearby you can wee in a jug and pour it away. Harder to do that with a poo.

Exaggerating the badness of something is called 'demonising' it. Exaggerating the goodness of something is not called 'angelifying' it, but 'lionising' it. This implies that the opposite of a demon is a lion.

Every game needs to let you dress your character up and decorate their cute little house. I love that shit.
