    Lol so ok I just stumbled across a segment from Rogan's podcast where he's talking to Henry Rollins. Whoever uploaded the video titled it "Henry Rollins discusses his autism" and it has created a huge debate in the comment section (Rollins never actually says anything about autism). This interview is well worth watching (it's only 11 mins). It's freakin hilarious :D I always thought Rollins was just a douchebag but in this interview he really is hilarious and....just a little odd. Odd in a way that really makes me wonder if he actually is on the autism spectrum for something. The way he describes his social shortcomings with people, his unique thinking patterns, to his odd rhythm of speech. It's just really odd. But it's really funny too, man, I promise. Not in a way that I'm laughing AT him or anything, but the way he puts things a couple times really made me LOL.

    Anyway, watch this. It's worth it. Then laugh again reading the video comments. What do you think, is Henry Rollins autistic?

    I believe he has ADHD. Which Is obviously not autism.

    that was 1 common thought as well. that and aspergers.

    watch the video man. It really is hilarious, I promise. And I can completely relate to the way he describes not wanting people around him for very long at a time. it's really interesting and really funny

    Ok, I watched it. I like Rollins so it was somewhat entertaining. I don't think he's autistic, though. Just doing his thing.

    Guy just lives his life how he sees fit. Because it's not conventional everybody feels the need to diagnose him.

    Well uh.. I've technically been diagnosed on the spectrum, he sounds pretty damn similar to me from this video. Especially about passing people you know and not wanting to throw yourself out there to them. But I'm still pretty curious about my own diagnosis, so I wouldn't diagnose him. The spectrum is a little wider than people realize, it doesn't always need to be acknowledged.

    He once said that he hasn't had a relationship in many, many years and that he never craves for one.
    He is odd and scary, oh and a big-head.

    I always thought he was eccentric. Maybe a little neurotic. I never considered autism.

    I'm no autism expert but I'd wager it's being overdiagnosed. I know someone whose 2yo was diagnosed with autism and I'm like wtf he hasn't even developed a personality yet how can you know if he's autistic. I think labeling kids from an early age can be limiting. My younger brother "failed" kindergarten cause he was in his own little world all the time and his teacher recommended putting him in some 'special' class. My mom balked. Today my bro is an orthopedic surgery resident at the Mayo Clinic with a wife and two kids. Who knows how he would've turned out had he grown up with the stigma of having some kind of disability.

    And lol at the part about passing people you know. Sometimes I go out of my way to avoid interacting with people I know because sometimes I just don't have the time or energy to be sociable. I think that makes me an introvert not an autist.
