Sad But Heartwarming Video About Autism That You Need To Watch

Sad But Heartwarming Video About Autism That You Need To Watch

Unless you are autistic, it’s really hard to understand what an autistic person faces on a daily basis. However, the National Autistic Society at least wants us to try to learn the troubles of artistic people.

In this 90-second video, you will experience the overstimulation that an autistic person feels in a busy public environment, for example at a mall. I really hope you'll make it to the end.


Next time you see someone with autism having a meltdown, you may be able to show a little more patience and empathy as they work through it.

The Day Dostoyevsky Discovered the Meaning of Life in a Dream

The Day Dostoyevsky Discovered the Meaning of Life in a Dream
Portrait of Fyodor Dostoyevsky by Vasily Perov, 1871

“And it is so simple… You will instantly find how to live.”


One November night in the 1870s, legendary Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky (November 11, 1821–February 9, 1881) discovered the meaning of life in a dream — or, at least, the protagonist in his final short story did. The piece, which first appeared in the altogether revelatory A Writer’s Diary (public library) under the title “The Dream of a Queer Fellow” and was later published separately as The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, explores themes similar to those in Dostoyevsky’s 1864 novel Notes from the Underground, considered the first true existential novel. True to Stephen King’s assertion that “good fiction is the truth inside the lie,” the story sheds light on Dostoyevsky’s personal spiritual and philosophical bents with extraordinary clarity — perhaps more so than any of his other published works. The contemplation at its heart falls somewhere between Tolstoy’s tussle with the meaning of life and Philip K. Dick’s hallucinatory exegesis.

The story begins with the narrator wandering the streets of St. Petersburg on “a gloomy night, the gloomiest night you can conceive,” dwelling on how others have ridiculed him all his life and slipping into nihilism with the “terrible anguish” of believing that nothing matters. He peers into the glum sky, gazes at a lone little star, and contemplates suicide; two months earlier, despite his destitution, he had bought an “excellent revolver” with the same intention, but the gun had remained in his drawer since. Suddenly, as he is staring at the star, a little girl of about eight, wearing ragged clothes and clearly in distress, grabs him by the arm and inarticulately begs his help. But the protagonist, disenchanted with life, shoos her away and returns to the squalid room he shares with a drunken old captain, furnished with “a sofa covered in American cloth, a table with some books, two chairs and an easy-chair, old, incredibly old, but still an easy-chair.”

As he sinks into the easy-chair to think about ending his life, he finds himself haunted by the image of the little girl, leading him to question his nihilistic disposition. Dostoyevsky writes:

He Spent 44 Years In A Cell... Now He's Shocked By Modern Technology

He Spent 44 Years In A Cell... Now He's Shocked By Modern Technology

Otis Johnson was 25 when he went to prison, in the 1970s, for committing the murder of a police officer. Last summer, after 44 years of imprisonment, he was finally set free.


He's now 69 years old and he feels strangely in the modern society. You can hear his words in the following video. He actually shows great wisdom through his reaction towards the new world's passion with technology: "I see that the majority of people were talking to themselves. Then I looked closely and they seemed to have things in their ears. I don’t know the things, the phone things… iPhones they call them, or something like that. And I thought in my mind, what, everybody became CIA or agents or some stuff like that? Because that’s the only thing I could think of, someone walking around with wires in their ears… that’s what they had when I was out during the 60s and 70s."

It seems like a voice from the past; from a human being who hasn't experienced the power of technology, so he hasn't forgotten the power of humanity. Maybe we should consider his words.

20 Rare Pictures Of The Last Samurai From 1800s

20 Rare Pictures Of The Last Samurai From 1800s

Samurai were outlawed and dissolved in 1868, marking the end of feudalism in Japan and the beginning of the modern era.

The Meiji Restoration was a chain of events that restored practical imperial rule to Japan in 1868 under Emperor Meiji. Although there were Emperors before the Meiji Restoration, the events restored practical abilities and consolidated the political system under the Emperor of Japan.

The Meiji Restoration accelerated industrialization in Japan, which led to its rise as a military power by the year 1905, under the slogan of "Enrich the country, strengthen the military". The Meiji oligarchy that formed the government under the rule of the Emperor first introduced measures to consolidate their power against the remnants of the Edo period government, the shogunate, daimyo, and the samurai class.

With the Restoration came many changes, including the creation of a modern, western-style, conscripted army in 1873. The famous Samurai, who despite making up only 10% of the Japanese population, and who wielded a tremendous amount of power, lost their right to be the nation's only armed force, and eventually, even their right to wear a sword in public.

These are extremely rare photos scrambled by the Retronaut of the Samurai at the twilight of their era between 1863 and 1900.
