Young Sheldon

 

Young sheldon

If you watched Young Sheldon last night, it was the number one show on CBS. But who is this Young Sheldon? Iain Armitage portrays Young Sheldon. He is a brilliant actor almost like his character.  He is known for HBO’s Big Little Lies he plays Shailene Woodley’s son Ziggy and in the film The Glass Castle (as the youngest Brian) with Brie Larson. Next, he will co-star with Mandy Moore.

There’s a controversy over Jim Parson’s character Sheldon that his character has autism. We all know what autism are the common symptoms they have problem understanding body language, facial expression, and tone of voice. Also, they can be intellectually smart, more like a robot with AI (Artificial Intelligent) or be a geek and nerd, and be teased at school. Leave them alone one they could rule the world. We have one already.

The bad news is Sheldon does not have autism, but the good news is Jim Parson is an actor. The writers of the show refuse to pathologies their characters because everyone should be loved and be accepted without labels. And the writers are very funny to create hilarious stories and plots and subplots to keep the ball rolling.

People who have “cute autism” do funny things like always need to sit in the same spot and memorize obscure facts. They misunderstand sexual innuendo, they carry around whiteboards, and they speak in funny, hyper-formal constructs. They amaze strangers with mental math, and they’re gosh darn persnickety about food and laundry. Cute autism is sometimes paired with cute OCD, which brings on symptoms like doing amusing rituals and being selectively germophobic, needing things to be lined up on shelves, and putting soup cans in alphabetical order, that makes us laugh.

“Cute Autism” is an identity that families of autistic children already feel compelled to perpetuate by only showing the funny or positive sides of autism.  We watch the events of our kids’ lives until the scary parts are gone.

Prank Gone Too Far

Pulling pranks on people are funny to watch on America Funniest Video, but pulling a prank on the nation. That’s going to far. And with the name of the boat “Blind date”? Who was driving? A blind captain? This happened on the Coast of Sandy Hook in New Jersey, and this incident is no laughing matter – may be on a slow news day, still no laughing matter.

Why do teenagers do this? Are there trying to find out who will get there faster the search and rescue team or pizza delivery person?  Not funny. But the person was hungry.

It took four hours to investigate and there was nothing to find. Now someone has to pay $88,000 and no down payment or installment plan. Maybe.

How about this for punishment, the person who is responsible for the prank at Sandy Hook in New Jersey, should clean the bottom of Sandy Hook river.   Other possible punishments clean all the vehicles that were involved during the rescue mission, helicopters, ambulance, fire trucks, portable transfer beds, and clean the poop for the rescue dogs that is used to find and locate people under debris and rubles. And make sure it is spot less clean, including the dog – make it April fresh in the butt – that’s right getting it clean.

Great for a summer job and make sure the person pays back every dollar back to the coast guard, police department, fire department, and hospital. That person would be broke. Lesson learned.

How to Fold a Map on your Phone

Many people may have some navigation device either on their car or on the phone. But do people use it? Maybe if it is local, they don’t use, because we know how to get there, and we know the place very well because we lived in the same place over 40 years.

But when we go to the next state across the border, we still might get lost, and it would be nice to use either Google maps on the cell phone, and if we have Onstar put that on. It would be still embarrassed to ask someone for directions, even though that person knows the area have lived almost a century and still know the place. Or people with a foreign accent, they may be hard to understand, and we still don’t understand. Then we go to someone who can speak English, a little kid. We rather speak to an adult not to a kid.

Just use the map on the phone, strangers can help, but they are strangers whom we don’t know and that person can fall of it’s rocker at the last sentence, and we could be lost again. Just use Google maps on the phone, and you will get to you destination. Why get lost again?
