This Post also covers sane, I am totally interested in the subject after reading some of the Posts, not withstanding my own. This Post is dedicated to acco franco and Darkside. and was inspired by their respective posts. How do you know if a Hubber is Dead? and How do you know if a hubber is Alive?
Yeah I was also wondering about it. Maybe perhaps if a hubbers has not written for so long means might be dead lol. Or just maybe not enterested to write anymore. HP is not concerned about it maybe cause many hubbers might just come and go.
This is funny. So were the other posts about dead and alive.
Well, I can tell people that I, for one, am neither dead nor insane. How alive I am right at this moment is something I can't really be sure of, myself. Oh - wait a minute. I just checked for a pulse. I'm apparently alive.
I like to assume that I'm so obviously boring nobody would ever think I could possibly be anything but completely sane. I don't know... I think I've seen a lot of pretty sane-looking Hubs on here.
Jewels...I couldn't agree with you more....I've never striven to be normal...how many normal people stick in your memory?? I'm what people call a "character"..in the good way...I keep em guessing what I may say or do next.
I'm sane but only in the Yossarian sense and I for one know that that man above me does not have another man under that hat with him. He's got a whole fecking rock band just waiting to get out. He hides it well.
A very interesting topic and the following is absolutely true:
What we should do is look for Freudian slips in their Hubs, their postings or their photographs.
History is full of examples of men who would today be branded cliniclally insane - but their military tactics in particular were outstanding!
Then there is the alternative viewpoint: perhaps it is those psychotherapists and analysts of the modern era who are themselves insane, simply looking to divert the focus from their problems to their "patients?"
It seems almost to be "fashionable" in modern times to have a psychiatrist - why?
Personally I do not even care. It is only the Internet folks and not meant to be taken this seriously. One thing I have thought was odd in the past though was one hubber claimed to be a licensed psychiatrist and would tell people that disagreed with him on his hub that they needed to be committed, and that he knows what type of meds they should probably take.
Where is he now SweetiePie? Psychiatrists are a good place to spot the insane, as not enough of them have asked themselves "Why do I want to look inside other peoples heads? Narcissistic cathection seems to be the problem! I am happily insane myself!
I was simply sharing what this one hubber said about the dissenter on his hub. They were both arguing with each other, and that was all I saw. Even if it is called mirroring I could care less as I find the field of psychiatry disturbing. I was having fun joining in on the convo here, that is all .
But has anyone asked, "How do we know that another Hubber is human, rather than a cat?" As I've watched my cat become increasingly more human-like as she has aged, I wouldn't be surprised if some really old cats are posting Hubs.
Here's where this lining of questioning can easily lead: How do we know if a hubber was declared insane before s/he died? How do we know if a hubber almost died, is alive, and also sane? How do we know if a hubber is alive, but unable to hub due to insanity? How do we know if a hubber is pretending to be alive but really is dead (now that's really insane). See what I mean? We could turn the question over and over and over and over and just drive ourselves... crazy. Oh wait! Isn't crazy the same as insane? Well, then I guess I, for one, am guilty as charged.
Instead of leaving it up to us to have sleepless nights over whether other Hubbers are insane or not, what if HubPages required a signed affidavit, attesting to each of our sanity; or else the standard, "certification" of insanity? They could then be posted on each profile, leaving no readers/fellow Hubbers left pondering. Or else, how about just something like a clown avatar for crazy people and a something boring (like a loaf of white bread) for sane folks?
I don't know why this thread keeps cracking me up; but every time I check Hubtivity to see what's new on there, I keep seeing, "How do we now if a Hub member is insane." Maybe I'm the only one who cracks up every time I see it's still kicking around.... couldn't resist commenting.
Runway? Would that be the ones where all the skinny gals with pointy nipples walk or the one that planes like to use as a means of landing/taking off?
Hope its the first one. I can just see the headlines now if its the second...'Airbus crash lands, on account of a hubmember, carousing down the runway in killer heels. The pilot is now having said heels surgically removed from his ass...'
Oh gawd G|M you make it way to easy for me to get all twisted up with double meanings...meth and crack? Either you're talking about drugs (and I kinda hope you are) or you have a much worse problem. One that involves a nasty cleaning fluid and ass 'goings on'.
Ahhh...lifes' little pleasures *sighs*
Anyways, gotta dash. Its all happening on Planet Frogdropping. Just got me a 'phone invite to a party and I'm polite (its a British thing) if nothing else. So I'm off. The free vodka has absolutely nothing to do with it. What so ever
I recently began reading a book that makes a good case for Jesus. I highly disagree with the Christian religion along with every other religion I have encountered. The author of the book makes a good case, either Jesus...
