  1. @Amanda: I don’t think it’s a question of love Amanda, we love all the Skepchicks (or at least I do), I think they’ve either been swallowed by the Norwegian Time Hole, or are floating on vegetation to Madagascar. We should gear up and rescue them!

  2. About the whole genes and social skills thing, I live with Auspies, there is a definite difference in how we interact. This goes beyond facial recognition, but they have different unspoken social rules, rules that make it easier for them to understand complete strangers with Aspergers better than people they’ve known for years without it. So, to think that there is a biological basis for different aspects of social interaction wouldn’t surprise me in the least.
