2022.01.17 13:07 Valuable-Presence-41 Hermione is Autistic
I’ve been working on a long piece about what would have happened if Hermione had been in Slytherin. I want to publish it some time next week, but there’s a lot of background work involved—specifically, tracing her story through the seven Potter books. For now I want to share something that’s struck me on rereading them. I think Hermione Granger is autistic, and while I wouldn’t claim that’s the one viable reading, I’d like to talk about my reasons. (There are lots.)
In a post on their blog, Tumblr user Lupinatic writes about Hermione’s first scene aboard the Hogwarts Express.
She opens the door and asks if Ron and Harry have seen Neville’s toad, without knocking or saying ‘excuse me’ first. She sees Ron’s wand out and demands (not asks) to see him perform magic (‘Let’s see it then’). When Ron’s spell fails, she boasts of having done simple spells for practice and basically infodumps before she finally bothers to introduce herself. Once Harry introduces himself, she tells him she knows all about him (which is an alarming thing to say to someone you’ve never met) and expresses distinct surprise that he didn’t respond to his fame the way she would have.As the author goes on to say, Hermione ‘is patronising, dismissive and bossy’ in this scene—‘and yet she is trying to help’. When she goes on about how much she’s read and about Hogwarts and its house system, it’s because she’s trying to socialise; when she tells Ron he has dirt on his nose, she assumes he’ll be glad to know. Later, when she tries to correct his hover charm, I get the sense she means to be helpful. Hermione first comes across—to me, at least—as kind but oblivious to unspoken social rules.
‘What would [Lupin’s boggart] have been for you?’ said Ron, sniggering. ‘A piece of homework that only got nine out of ten?’But what if Hermione is a teacher’s pet because she needs to be—because earning teachers’ approval academically is easier than earning peers’ approval socially? What if Hermione had a difficult time in muggle school, with children ostracising her and staff suggesting she might do better elsewhere? As Alyssa Hillary writes, the scene where Hermione worries about being ‘killed, or worse, expelled’ plays differently if she’s been unwelcome at other schools, and if she thinks Hogwarts is her last shot.
‘Well, obviously, she’s feeling very sad, because of Cedric dying. Then I expect she’s feeling confused because she liked Cedric and now she likes Harry, and she can’t work out who she likes best. Then she’ll be feeling guilty, thinking it’s an insult to Cedric’s memory to be kissing Harry at all, and she’ll be worrying about what everyone else might say about her if she starts going out with Harry. And she probably can’t work out what her feelings toward Harry are anyway, because he was the one who was with Cedric when Cedric died, so that’s all very mixed up and painful. Oh, and she’s afraid she’s going to be thrown off the Ravenclaw Quidditch team because she’s been flying so badly.’When I read this, I hear the voice of someone who thinks about how people feel in the same way I do: by looking consciously at the facts from their point of view and thinking of possible responses. Plenty of autistic people have advanced social skills—the ones I know include therapists and people who perform funerals—and frequently this is what they look like. Why does Hermione sigh at Harry, telling Ron ‘nastily’ that he hasn’t much emotional range? Because, again, she’s had to work at learning to do this.
Hermione had got both her breath and her bad temper back again. ‘You don’t use your eyes, any of you, do you?’ she snapped. ‘Didn’t you see what it was standing on?’ ‘The floor?’ Harry suggested. ‘I wasn’t looking at its feet, I was too busy with its heads.’Hermione spots visual details others miss—and notice how annoyed she is that they don’t perceive things the way she does. Grammatically, ‘any of you’ refers to three people at minimum. Hermione isn’t just complaining about Harry and Ron: she’s saying her peer group in general don’t seem to use their eyes. Later, in Half-Blood Prince, Slughorn asks her to explain how she recognises amortentia, and Hermione gives a memorable reply.
‘You recognised it, I suppose, by its distinctive mother-of-pearl sheen?’ ‘And the steam rising in characteristic spirals,’ said Hermione enthusiastically, ‘and it’s supposed to smell differently to each of us according to what attracts us, and I can smell freshly mown grass and new parchment and—’Notice the enthusiasm, the urgent and-and-and; notice how intensely she seems to experience aromas; notice the borderline-overwhelmed tone.

My name is Robin, I live in Germany and work in sales and marketing. Sounds boring? It is! That's why I try to upgrade my free time as good as possible: I do a lot of sports, love cooking and also do a good amount of outdoor stuff. My favorite is fishing for sure, but I also enjoy a good hike or just catching the first sunlight after a grey long German winter.
I would say that I am a very open minded person who enjoys life with all its up and downs. I really believe in dualism without getting too spiritual about it. I just take life as it is and try to make the best of it!
Enough about me for now. What about you? I would love to hear from you!

2022.01.17 13:07 Wise_Ad8479 Voltage overclock for GPUs
Well I own a rx550 2gb which particularly isn't an enthusiast card by any means but I have been trying to learn to overclock my gpu to get a bit more fps. I kind of hit a barrier when my gpu had low enough temperatures that it wasn't throttling but with the overclocks it would crash. I think low voltage is the problem, so should try to get into voltage tweeking and if yes how is safe way to start it

2022.01.17 13:07 bedmed8 I relapsed :(
I started binge eating when I got to college, but I was able to stop bingeing while I was home for Winter break (even lost several pounds!). Last night I had my second binge after coming back to school this week. I really hope I can break this pattern again. I hope I can stay on the winning streak I’ve been on. Feeling good for tonight though, promised myself I’m not gonna binge🤞

2022.01.17 13:07 Cyber_Mk Our experience and a question
My family and I, we jut had covid, we have a baby as well.
The first to show symptoms was my wife. After 4 days the LO showed symptoms and next say myself. We are both vaccinated and we were about to get the booster.
Symptoms timeline was like this:itchiness in through and nose like before a cold, fever (high for my wife and baby, mild for me) a general feeling of unwell and tiredness, coughing that progressively turned juicier. All this lasted about 4 days, with coughing persisting for another 2 days(6 in total of our 10 day quarantine)
Don't need to tell you the scariest part was having a baby infected, thankfully we all got through it.
All we took was paracetamol and panadol babys for the LO. + honey+propolis+Royal jelly bc i have acces to a beekeper friend (just the adults of course)
My question is, my wife and little ones cought returned, no other symptoms, 3 days after it stopped(on the 9th day) . Is it normal? Has anyone experienced something like this? Thank you
