So do Mark Zuckerburg, Bill Gates, my son Michael... and me.

The internet is a great equalizer in that it may be easier for
Asperger "sufferers" to look into a screen than to a person's eyes.  I
sometimes pick things up from a person's tone of voice that I probably
should have picked up much earlier if I had been looking directly at

Oh and living in Taiwan is also a great equalizer for me because a lot
of girls have really pretty eyes so of course I'm looking into them
when I am talking to them.  The downside is now that the culture and
language are both different so there is even more reason for

As you said, there are at least four versions of the LNH so when I
said "this version of the LNH" I wasn't thinking about LNH20 at all.
Indeed, over the years there have been multiple evil versions of the
LNH, Elsewhirls including some Miss TranslaXXXion stories (which I
never asked the Miss Translation author for permission for and I
didn't think I needed to because it was a parody but I think I pissed
him off and I'm sorry about that) and there was even a previous two
issue "Ultimatization" of the LNH in my Cute Anna series.  Oh and
there were alternative versions of the LNH in Retcon Hour and Flame
Wars 6 too.  Oh and I also forgot the alternative LNH in Golden Age
LNH-Men and Silver Age LNH-Men.  So, you see, I wasn't referencing
LNH20 at all.

Think Domino of X-Factor.

Anyway, I'm glad you're not angry with me.  I was expecting the
worst.  (I'm in a different time zone so I just got up this morning.)
