warm weather cold weather
so at my new job i work with a 2yo that is most likely autistic. i've never met anyone with autism, so this is all pretty interesting and new to me. i remember being in hs and watching a documentary on this woman who was severly autistic. she couldn't do anything and everyone thought she was brain damaged, until one day she put herself in the machine that they use to calm cows before they are slaughtered, and everything came together and she could be normal again (the machine squeezes the cow, which is calming and then they put some spike through its head or something). now this woman is a professor who designs human livestock quarters and likes to talk about autism. anyway, the movie is an errol morris documentary called stairway to heaven, and i remember liking it alot from my 15 yo perspective.
