I think it is quite literally how people end up going insane.
what is not insane: you see a person standing on the edge of a cliff and for a brief second the questions crosses your mind to push them off just to see what will happen but you quickly put that away cause sanity says, good golly no way. You give yourself a quick *shutter* at the thought and move on.
What is insane: To actually do it because you have somehow lost touch with reality, which is you know what will happen if you did such a thing but somehow convinced yourself that it was a gamble or where unable to control your... curiosity...something like that.
LOL, I dunno but I am sane enough to know that that person is likely to kick your ass once you get off the cliff. So what is more insane, letting them hang and calling it an accident, claiming temporary insanity or finishing the job.
I know I felt insane plenty of times. People can drive you crazy....literally. I've had to debate my sanity a couple of times but not daily. I try not to debate it at all anymore for the simple fact that I really don't care if you think I'm sane or not. I know what's up with me.
Some of the most brillant and fascinating people in the world, past and presence, are probably considered to be clinically insane. However, the question is would you rather spend time with a pscyhologist analyzing your life 24/7, or actually living and not worry about all the details.
i watch Dr Phil so i can benefit from his vast understanding of all things!for instance,he said"there is no reality,there's only perception".isn't that kinda like saying"you should always wear your glasses when entering a pitch black room".personally i think he is the reincarnation of Phil Silvers...
I've never debating whether or not I was sane. But now thinking of the question I believe I am. I make rational decisions (99% of the time) and deal the best I can with the insanity of the rest of the world.
Sane or insane? Well, that all depends...am I normal or abnormal? Isn't really based on perspective? I may be the most sane person in my mind, but others may regard me as totally insane. (I'm not kidding with this last statement!) My sanity depends on how many kids are at home that day, the weather, the phase of the moon, my work schedule, my deadlines for projects and how much sleep I've had in the last 48 hours. Usually, I'm quite sane...except for the times that I'm not.
You the people of Earth must know this one thing: we have always been your Gods...we are still your Gods and we always will be. We the people of Targon have decided your fate. We will continue to sexually molest your women, steal semen from your men, and mutilate your live stock. We will continue to...
Hey.....HEY!....Get away from me with that net! What the hell is that straight jacket for! Go away! Help! Help!
Dale Carnegie author of How To Win Friends And Influence People used to have an imaginary council with some of the greatest minds in the world and got extraordinary results! If you want ordinary results do what most do. If you want extraordinary results be bold- be daring do what Dale Carnegie does! OOPS! I'm suppose to be in another forum got to run bye!
I had a friend in high school who was a complete genius. You could give him any math problem, no matter how complex, and he would solve it in his head in seconds. Ask him a few more, (out of sheer amazement), and he would suddenly dart down the hallway knocking over anyone in his way, screaming like a banshee. Most of the time, people treated him like a complete idiot...and I guess to most of the people I went to school with, at least socially, he was. But does that make him insane?
The term insanity is mostly used by lawyers and Judges .. not mental health professionals, at least not any more. I have worked with individuals with mental health problems for a while. People are treated according to diagnosis and not grouped under one big category of insane. Psychiatric problems do not discriminate.. they pose problems for the rich and poor and the smart and not so smart.. Your friend may have had true psychiatric problems or he just may have liked to get attention from negative actions.
If you think that you are insane, get a job at a psychiatric hospital. There you will find what insanity really is. If you can't get a job, talk to a janitor who works there and let him tell you about the people who talk to Jesus on a daily basis and then eat their own poop or smear it on the walls.
Now, I don't claim to be anywhere near "normal," but I'm in no danger of being locked up for my own good either.
My theory on this is that for all of history the real crazies were the ones who made things happen and came up with the most brilliant ideas.....that is if the nut cases used their insanity for the good of all men.
Two nights ago, a father and his 13 year old daughter walked to the local market for some ice cream. With them, they brought their 2 dogs and they were off leash.While walking down the road, one of the dogs...
