Funny you should ask.....

I recently posted the following to one of the CB "who do you like best polls:

If I were to crew on the BeBop, I'd consider putting her (Ed) in the air lock .... but just duct tape her to something instead ..... frequently.

Actually,I think Ed is autistic -- minimal verbal communication, random body movements and the ability to totaly focus on computer stuff. Anyone else have a diagnosis for Ed?

Note: Autistic children are often like alien geniuses that think and communicate in a different way than the rest of us. Hypersensitivity to various stimuli can cause them to withdraw or react depending on how they are wired.
Stand back! This old Otaku has PMS, a broadsword, a double bladed battle ax, a flail, dagger in her teeth and a pistol in her belt.

Except for the fact my daughter is much older than Ed is on Bebop... yes, she acts a bit the same way. Hyperlexia is the 'label' they decided on.
Amber will talk with you only if she thinks you'll 'get' what she's saying. There can be days of no communication. :shock:

Well, I think Ed just eats too much sugar and gets like that.

Or, she is just a happy soul....a very happy one...but she is the life of the crew of the bebop....She is just really hyper...dats all..

She is a happy soul, but she is also autistic, or from what i just read hyperlexic.
If you noticed she also always refers to herself in third person, a common symptom of autism.

I love Ed! She's a really funny happy character :)

no i dont think shes retarded
I felt like a race horse in a world without racetracks or a champion college footballer suddenly confronted by Wall Street and a business suit, his days of glory shrunk to a little gold cup on his mantel with a date engraved on it like a tombstone.

The header states, "Do you think Ed is kinda retarded."... what does being retarded mean to you? Watching Ed using a computer and figuring stuff out says she's quite intelligent to me.

Besides... 'retarded' is an out-dated term. And not nice, either.
