Insanity

Insanity is a strange concept to try and think rationally about. How do you come to understand something that by definition is unrational. How rational are we to start with? Do we really know our own thoughts or are we just a child king? our concioeness just riding on top of decisions that are out of our hands and then just justifying them after the fact.

Is insanity really doing the same thing over and over and hopeing for a different result. Because at a quantum level is there ever the same thing or not a different result?

How does one delusional person that belives plainly false ideals get held up as a challenge to the staus quo making the system think, when another that has a legitimate concern with a faulty system is called a danger, rabble rouser or even terrorist? Even when the first puts lives at risk and the second doesn’t?

Why is it that insanity is deemed brilliance in some and a desease in others? That some obsessions are considered virtues and others vices. That apathy is seen as better than empathy.  Why is the cinic considered the voice of the wise but optimism the symptom of a dull mind or at best a naive one.

So yeah thats something. Go chew on those tasty thought biscuits and see what falls out.

Comics

So it’s finally happened I bought a comic book.

I expect my official nerd license in the mail any day now having completed the final task of the master nerd checklist.

For those unaware I include a copy of the master nerd checklist. Without completing these tasks you may not call yourself a nerd

  • Watch the starwars OT
  • Watch the original startrek tv series
  • Watch the first season of doctor who
  • Watch a season of anime
  • Watch all studio ghibli films
  • Read an Asimov novel
  • Read an Arthur c Clarke novel
  • Read the silmarillion
  • Play dungeons and dragons
  • Play a game made by blizzard
  • Read a complete  comic book story

So now that the final task has been crossed off my master nerd training is complete I must journey on to the next rank, that of the über nerd whose requirements can not be disclosed to the uninitiated.

So if anyone has a pair of suspenders or a pair of thick rimmed glasses i am now in the market for some. So let me know.
