Hyperacute Hearing

Fluorescent Lights

Can you hear fluorescent lights?
I can.
All the time.
They all sound a little different from one another.
But in general, it's a high-pitched sawtoothed buzz.
Not the rough, lower buzz of a broken fixture.
Or of flickering tubes in the subway.
That, I know you can hear.

Do you have a form of autism?

I think I'm on the autistic spectrum. But I wouldn't say I have autism. That diminishes the struggle that autists face in this society. I'm pretty functional, far more so than most with Asperger's...

Still, I exhibit a lot of classic symptoms: slight face blindness, inability to read fiction, obliviousness to song lyrics, lack of eye contact, loud talking, obsession with pattern, etc...
