Please, simply stop referring to it as to being Autistic, the fact of the matter is, Albert Einstein himself had this problem, the term "Autistic" has a reputation that causes people to refer to it as mental retardation, and considering that, it is quite idiotic considering the likes of Einstein and Newton (Though I must add that Newton's brain was not preserved, therefore the only basis for him being deemed as to having Asperger's is from the limited historical data that could be dug up on him and his social interactions and lack of understanding for other people and how they thought.)

You sound like someone with autistic tendencies (hence the lack of ability to read body language) who thinks he has come up with a world-beater in the form of already discovered cultural determinism.
Anyhow, referring to Asperger's syndrome so generically as to calling it Autism is in it's self a travesty considering the vast ignorance stating it as such promotes.
Those with Asperger's syndrome are most often able to think further outside the box than others, simply because they don't truly belong in the same box as others.
If you think back, Einstein failed Mathematics simply because he didn't do the problems the way they were trying to teach him to do them, instead he found a way he himself could understand them to be done through. The ironic fact here is they assumed he was cheating and copying the answer from the papers of others while writing a false path to in which the answer could be found through, however that was not the case, the case here was that he was using his own way to get the answers and though the teachers could not comprehend it, his answers were correct.
He was quite the class clown considering how little he was accepted, since it is an easy observation to make that people prefer lightheartedness as apposed to intellectual forms of entertainment, he came to feel that be trying to be funny, he'd have more of a chance for fitting in not to mention lessen his stress by making himself laugh every now and then.
