I could have swore I replied to this, but I guess my comment got lost because I keep like, fifty fucking tabs open at a time. My bad.

ahem Anyway, it's hard for me to say if my taste differs much from an NT's sense of taste. I do feel like I taste things with more complexity(?), but I don't have much to compare it to. I can say that I started learning to cook and bake after reading and memorizing large portions of [The Professional Chef] (http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Chef-Culinary-Institute-America/dp/0470421355) and people love my food. And I taste-test it throughout the cooking process to make sure it's good, so apparently there's nothing wrong with my sense of taste. Maillard is one of my favorite words.

I hate the taste of liquor in things. I like alcoholic drinks where the taste of alcohol is completely disguised.

My favorite food is ice cream. My least favorite food is caviar.

I'm picky about the textures of foods, and I can't eat anything that smells bad (like kimchi). My sister-in-law makes this Filipino soup with tamarind and cellophane noodles that absolutely disgusts me. The smell of it drives me from the house. (Don't tell her I said that.)

I have a very strong sense of smell, which I think makes my sense of taste stronger than the average bear, but I'm not sure. I do know that certain smells which bother other people (skunk, gasoline, burning rubber, a catalytic converter) do not bother me at all. I actually think they smell pretty good. Meanwhile, some things which people think smell good (like certain flowers and perfumes) smell awful to me. I CANNOT go near a Bath and Body Works store.

I love to try cooking new and exotic things, but I personally have very simple tastes. I could happily live the rest of my life taking in nothing but coffee with milk and sugar, iced sweet tea, iced water with lemon, plain turkey sandwiches on white, and Campbell's chicken noodle or tomato soup.

Cilantro tastes like cilantro to me. Not soap. :D

>I was curious, do you attempt to keep in touch with any of your students? It seems that you've had a pretty profound impact on more than a few lives you must be curious about if your work is paying off.

Yes. After I left teaching, over the years, Facebook has been a wonderful boon.

It used to be that teachers sent their students off into the world and then....


.... and then nothing. Never heard from them again. Teachers were left to wonder what became of their students, unless the students reached out or the teachers reached out.

However, over the years, I've had a number of my former students add me on Facebook.

The most awesome example I can think of is someone I taught tenth grade Biology to, who then added me on Facebook, then asked me where she could volunteer for research credit. She's now a student at a local community college, and I mentor her research in our chronic disease laboratory. So I get to continue working with her and watching her grow as a learner. Awesome.

For my blog, I recently did some research and tried to track down a number of my old students. I used Facebook, Google, and the county's jail records to try to figure out what happened to them, and compare it to how they said they wanted to change the world when they were in 10th grade.

Here are some links to their stories, if you're interested:

>Also, I haven't finished the book so if this is answered further in my new question is: What was the last book you finished and really enjoyed?

Ooh, that's a tough one. Unfortunately, most of the reading I do these days is strictly professional, so it can be tough.

I'd say 'The Gift of Fear' by Gavin de Becker. I reference it a lot here on Reddit. Really good for getting an idea of other people's motivations and learning to trust your gut.

Boyfriend of a recovering ED person. She has been in recovery for about a year now, and nothing comes easy with it. It is daily that she has to remind herself to keep with the program and that even when she falters, she has to get back up and get back on track.

If you are looking to recover (and congrats to that!), here are a few good first steps. You will need to find yourself a treatment program. I would suggest be starting out by going to the doctors, tell them you are bulimic, and then they will be able to recommend to you a specialist and/or treatment programs in your area. Also, do not keep it a secret anymore. By telling your friend and family will make you accountable and will be telling yourself that you in fact have a problem. This will also open the door for better support from your loved ones.

Also, please keep in mind that you need to do this for yourself and not because others are wanting you to recover. As the boyfriend, this is the hardest thing for me do do is to leave the recovery to her because I always want to fix things. She has become stronger for it though.

Also, here is a good first book to read. This book is written by a recovered ED person and it really gives a good perspective into the life and recovery involved. http://www.amazon.com/Life-Without-Ed-Declared-Independence/dp/0071422986

Again, congrats on making the first step! Just make sure not to give up. It is a long road ahead, but it is well worth it in the end.

My adivce is to take action. Not doing anything will make you feel worse. /r/keto is a great place to get help working on your body. I have seen amazing results in there. Also a book that I highly recommend Mindset. If you don't feel comfortable talking to anybody at least take small steps in a positive direction. Lots of small steps add up to big achievements. Work on the things that you have under your control, yourself.

Check out this book: Forgive for Good. I hope you find some peace.

On that note there's an amazing book called Sexual Healing Journey by Wendy Maltz. The language was a bit cringe-y for me, but it does a very good job of taking you and your partner gradually through step-by-step to rebuilding positive sexual intimacy after abuse.

Have you ever read the book, How To Lie With Statistics? Really, the only part of college statistics that I have retained is how to lie with numbers, while still being technically mathematically correct. You should step up your lie game. Practice makes perfect! https://www.amazon.com/How-Lie-Statistics-Darrell-Huff/dp/0393310728/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526650890&sr=8-1&keywords=how+to+lie

If you binge watched them you could get them done in as little as two days. As a 16 year old during summer, I've done it. Also there are 8 movies, the last book was split into 2.

Movies on Amazon if you're interested.


The books take significantly longer to finish obviously.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me. I've read and watched the whole series 10 times.

I've heard of it but since it's anonymous, I don't really know if it can be trusted. I'm interested in checking it out but I'm also wary of whether or not the author is an actual sociopath.

One book whose author is also anonymous and seems like a sociopath without actually saying so is called Diary of An Oxygen Thief.

I forget how to hyperlink on Reddit but that's here: http://www.amazon.com/Diary-Of-An-Oxygen-Thief/dp/0615275060

You might not find any one who's willing to answer, but if you're interested in more information, I can point you here and here.

I'm not a prison librarian but this book is a good insight into prison libraries. http://www.amazon.ca/Running-Books-Adventures-Accidental-Librarian/dp/0767931319

"Disney is so good at being good that it manifests an evil; so uniformly efficient and courteous, so dependably clean and conscientious, so unfailingly entertaining that it's unreal, and therefore is an agent of pure wickedness. . . . Disney isn't in the business of exploiting Nature so much as striving to improve upon it, constantly fine-tuning God's work."
--from Team Rodent : How Disney Devours the World by Carl Hiaasen
