Thank you, bbrewer.  I was wondering.

I'm not the expert here, but that only marginally sounds like the geeks I

my favorite geeks have not (yet) been diagnosed with asperger's
syndrome. or bite the head's off of chickens.

nytimes magazine had a great story about asperger's about a month ago.
more common in little boys than girls, about 5-to-1 i think.
