Spock And Autism

"Autistic Spectrum Disorder is like the arrow in the FedEx logo: Once you know about it, you see it everywhere." And definitely in "Star Trek."

OMG. Arrow.

Stuff like that just blows my mind.
All these years I've just been blind.

I'm a professional graphic designer, I've studied the damned FedEx logo for chrissakes, I only noticed the arrow a couple years ago. Total "d'oh!" moment.

Hey, I grew up loving the Milwaukee Brewers and I was, like, 15 before I noticed OMG THAT'S AN 'M' and a 'B'!!!!! in the glove. Then they ditched the logo. I hate them.

This is fascinating. Too bad it probably gets filed in all the other "what star trek tells us about our real world" stuff where Spock is Obama!, the Romulans are just like the EU! and Warf is, like, masculine rebellion against objectification.
