Curious coincidence (or maybe not), two days after realising “something” was missing in one of my frequent logic diagrams, I saw an episode of The Big Bang Theory in which Wollowitz discovers a flaw in Sheldon’s friendship algorithm.

Dr. Sheldon Cooper’s lack of a cycle counter in his friendship algorithm is not a trivial issue. The cycle counter is the “real life”, “context”, “awareness”, “empathy”, aspect of a logic interpretation of a social engagement. No wonder Sheldon missed it (and Wollowitz quickly noticed). Its importance for an Aspie can not be overstated.

[Note.- funny as this is, this is no laughing matter]
