Exploring a mix of ideas, and waffling on a bunch. Maybe I'll come back and edit a bit every so often.
I have a hypothesis I've been playing with that would say that snowflakes and the semi-autistic are new and not normal human variation.

I came upon a note I wrote in 2006-03-05 or earlier.

Exploring this concept.
I got burnt out and bored pretty quickly, but here are some notes.. I guess.
Why aren't there many geese here?
Well, I tend to make friends with people like me. People that do the same things as me and are interested in the same things as me. That's just how things work. Isn't that how you work? Aren't your friends mostly geese?
So I brought my friends, who are mostly ducks. So here we have mostly ducks. Most of the other people who were interested enough to come were also ducks, who brought mostly other ducks. Ducks share the same interests as ducks.
The question is, then, why didn't you bring any geese?
You came alone then blamed me for .. what.. not bringing your friends?
Why were you interested and your friends weren't?
You asked me a question you would be the expert at answering.
