"People with autism are dying earlier than the general population," BBC News reports.

A recent study in Sweden showed the average age of death for a person with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is 54 years, compared with 70 for matched controls.

Two recent studies will undoubtedly shock individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These studies show a much earlier age of death in those with ASD as compared with the general population.

One study, published in the American Journal of Public Health in April 2017, finds the life expectancy in the United States of those with ASD to be 36 years old as compared to 72 years old for the general population. They note that those with ASD are 40 times more likely to die from various injuries. About 28 percent of those with ASD die of an injury. Most of these are suffocation, asphyxiation, and drowning. The risk of drowning peaks at about 5 to 7 years old. As 50 percent of those with ASD wander, water safety and swim lessons are a must. GPS trackers are also available for purchase should a child wander or get lost. This makes finding the child or adult much easier and faster.

Went to watch it yesterday - Go if:

  • You like loads of action, especially flying scenes (It's mostly a string of flying action scenes with a little story tossed in to string them together)
  • You like to think terrible things about slanty eyed jap bastards
  • You like films with minimum sloppy love scenes
  • You are a little nuts and like fucking big explosions

I have cable and it's completely unreliable. They are constantly "working to improve your service".
I don't want it improved, I just want it to work and it doesn't work far too much of the time so I've had enough.

Talking to an actual person at Sky is even more difficult than at Virgin so I'd like to ask existing customers:

Can I get a service from Sky that includes the supply, installation and setup of a satellite dish, or do I have to install one myself before I can use their service? If they do supply dishes, are they good or would I be better shopping for one? For example, are all dishes capable of receiving multiple channels simultaneously or is that down to the set top box?

Finally, can anyone who has used both Sky and Virgin tell me which they think is better?

Ta.

... That raising the minimum wage to 10.50 is a great idea.

I was inspired to start this thread by the inheritance tax discussion.

You spend you life relentlessly working so you can leave truckloads of money to your children (which the state intends to steal from) . But how are you preparing for after life? Do you want your possessions buried with you?

What is a good death?

Did you leave the world a better place?

Should we meditate.
