My cousin is autistic but he does not have any special mental abilties. His abiltiy is not of the mind but of the body.
When I was 11, and he was 7, another cousin of mine also 11 were lifting weights trying to improve our manhoods
. We had 110 pounds on the
dumb-bell and we were attempting to dead lift the weight. We were able to get the weight up to our knees and no more. My cousin and I were resting
from our attempts to lift the weight when my autistic cousin came out of the house and walked over to the dumbbell picked it up with apparantly no
effort and threw it several feet into the air.
My Autistic cousin had a sister who died when she was 13 and to this day he will carry on conversations with his deceased sister like she is standing
right next to him.
