Hi, I'm Faye. I have degrees in astronomy and computer science but just drift through life doing graphic art and learning stuff because everyone in the corporate world is either evil or (mainly) stupid, even at the nuclear engineering company which was my last job.
I have autism which means I don't understand why people get mad when all I do is be honest. I also don't understand why everybody else treats each other so mean and why they tell lies virtually continuously, like they can't control it. Also, I don't understand normal peoples' jokes and they never understand mine.
Actually, autism is a special kind of "retarded", where you're really smart in one or two things, smarter than almost anybody, but except for that you're an ordinary retarded person. What I'm smart at is language and complexity.
I designed the neutron monitor (and won an award for it), and did the interface for a gamma ray spectrometer, but quit when I talked about something I did one weekend that was apparently "inappropriate", and peoples' reaction freaked me out, so I just walked out.
I am HORRIBLY shy (at least I think that's how to describe it. I don't FEEL like I'm shy. I feel like I'm normal and everyone else is scary). I live by myself with little Mister Kitty, and that's all I want. Being around people, especially crowds, is very, very confusing and upsetting for me, even if I'm just standing there against the wall, which usually ends up being the case.
The idea that two people of different sexes could be naked in a room, alone, is amazing and fascinating and strange and frightening all at the same time. How could they look at each other? How could they talk? God, I can't even talk to the cashier at the store!
'm a hot-wired, heat-sync, overclocked freq, and I'll keep patching XP instead of buying Vista because the upside of downloading beats the downside of upgrading.
That's why they call me the recursively enumerated, insufficiently remunerated, double data-rated, triple X-rated, psychoactive, hyperactive, hyperbolic, hypergolic, St. Vitus' dancin', pull down her pants and low-class, kiss-my-ass, underemployed, overjoyed, masterpiece-makin', masturbatin', window ledge over-the-edge, screwy, chiral, downward-spiral, ass upended, fair-weather-friended,titty-peek girl geek.
I like the internet because I can learn stuff and because when I DO message someone, I don't have to come up with things to say like I'm on stage, like you do when you talk on the phone.
The word "hacker" used to be noble and good, but now it means "criminal" so I don't refer to myself as that anymore. I went to 2600 meeting once, but they're all pretentious posers and bullshitting lamers. True Hackers are like Jedi:
-- Only use their Power for good, never ee-ville
-- Just the bad ones get publicity
-- There are only a few, spread across the galaxy
I edit wikipedia under the name "TechnoFaye" and have about 500 edits.
I cuss like a sailor because:
1) My drunken Mom brought home a lot of sailors
2) I don't like being dainty and feminine
3) I like to shock normal people
4) I'm emotionally immature
5) In college we got high and sat around listening to Richard Pryor CDs, and I got imprinted.
6) I'm crazy, and crazy people DO that
Don't take this as a personal rejection, but people: please stop asking to be on my friends list. Then only people there are people who have posted comments o my blog. Post a comment, get a friend! As you can see, my best friend is nVidia. I'm in love with my GeForce 7800GT, the fastest AGP card ever made. Believe it or not, I never played a computer game; I just like Second Life, where I can practice talking to people in an environment where if I get shy I can literally disappear. What usually happens is that I take off all my clothes, get attached to furniture, and be whipped and raped. Second Life is a lot of fun!
I like receiving anal sex because it is humiliating.
I doubt I would be this intense if I were not completely isolated as a hermit in real life. On the other hand, I don't care why. My weblog: http://blog.myspace.com/fayekane
