Beauty and the Geek

I love this show. I'm totally on the side of the geeks, but a few of the girls always turn out to be able to get past their usual persona and grow a bit, along with the geeks. However, the sooner Cecille is gone the better. Unfortunately, Nate could go all the way. I would hate to see him out because of her. Cecille is the biggest bag of ballast on the show. If Tori had teamed up with Nate, she'd probably still be on the show.

OMG, wasn't Sheree awesome?!

Okay, so what does this have to do with ASD? Duh! Look at these guys! They're all very intelligent and most of them show obvious behaviors associated with autism/Asperger's. But look how well they've done. Maybe not socially, which NTs consider to be the most or second most important area of success. Look at these guys. Every one of them will succeed in their chosen fields, maybe even make some huge new discovery and, sooner or later, they'll probably all get married (for life), have kids and pass on their excellent genes.

The girls? Not so good an outlook. Sheree will succeed. She will succeed because she knows there's more out there than how she looks on Saturday night. The others, well, we'll see how things unfold.
