So what is normal anyway? (pt. 2)Presence of normality
Middle way Absence of normality
Isnt it strange that most things filed under "normal" are actually rarer and stuff filled under "abnormal" is more common..."Social norms have been defined as "the rules that a group uses for appropriate and inappropriate values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviors. These rules may be explicit or implicit. Failure to stick to the rules can result in severe punishments, the most feared of which is exclusion from the group." "What is deemed acceptable to young people is often unacceptable to elderly people"A norm gives a person a rule of thumb for how they should behave. However, a rational person only acts according to the rule if only it is optimal for them.
So I'm not totally crazy for acting how i act (sometimes)
if it is norm for girls to think brad pitt is hawt.. If i DONT think brad pitt is hawt, but i say he is, it makes me irrational.
So in reality (or the matrix??) we should just think what we think and not care about what we're "SUPPOSED" to think.
Which is why I have respect twords Alex H.... (Name split to prevent googling weirdness) ..udson. Some random girl from quiz bowl that ive never talked to.
..at quiz bowl she wore a suit to the tournaments...
..not to mention she had long blonde hair and glasses, and i found her slightly attractive.
Go figure, she got a sex change XD
but the point is, she didn't care that girls arent supozed to wear suits :O she was herself, and I think thats an awesome way to think.
Could I personally wear a suit to school? No. Because I'm terrified of being talked about..
I got hilights in my hair in 10th grade.. Courtney Queen O' Sluts and Sonia Vanwhotealot in science class.. I saw them whispering.. and with my crazy sense of hearing at times, i listened to what they said.. and they were all "eww it looks green, how could she leave it like that.." etc.
I think I yelled at them, i dont remember ><
But i felt bad for x amount of weeks because............... people were talking about me... and i dont like people talking about me.
In that same class, I had neopets stickers on my agenda.. and they came up and they were like "wut is that little poke e mans or somethin?" and i was like "Ummm noo"
I should have said "No, its the animated animal incarnates of your interests! Huge pulsating dicks, lipstick containers, and TALKING ABOUT ME"
Which leads me to the "LOLOL poke e mans is for lil 6th graders"
...and in 6th grade they said "LOLOL poke e mans is for lil 2nd graders"
its so dumb.
But yeah i never walked up to them looked at their nonexistant agenda (because they were too irresponsible not to loose theirs) and say "Lol what, are those naked celebreties or WUT"
I never bothered them why the hell did they have to bother me?
And I dont even FUCKING want anyone to pull the "Oh maybe they were trying to be friendly" speach. Because they werent. And I hope they get ran over by a freight train.The Norm of Reciprocity:
In the western world, it is a custom to exchange gifts on various holidays. It is so deeply ingrained in the minds of people that many do not think of acting otherwise.
Now, suppose you become fed up with exchanging gifts. It is not necessarily easy to change your actions. Unilaterally changing your actions to stop giving gifts may give others the impression that you are a selfish person, and that impression is probably not in your interest. Notice, that your friends may be following the norm for the same reasons as you. If that is the case, you are wrongly coordinating due to the customary norm of gift exchange and are trapped in a prisoner's dilemma game. Coordination with communication may be necessary to get out of the prisoner's dilemma situation.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prisoner

than the rest of the 3)http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/horn/message/23396
^Backup evidence"In fact, the active ingredient in Benedryl (250 mg of
diphenhydramine hydrochloride) is *exactly* the same ingredient in many
sleep aids such as Sominex (among others). The only difference between
Benedryl and Sominex is the packaging and price (Sominex being
significantly more expensive)."

HOMŒOPATHIC PRACTITIONERYou are in luck. I have been using herbs for many years. I am within a few months of 60. I tell people about the herb I am going to tell you about all the time. Go to a reputable herb shop and see if they have any lobelia inflata. If not, go on the web and look it up. It tells you where it grows, all over the southwest. When you find some, take a big trash bag and collect all the leaves you can. When you get home use one of those screenwire collanders, put a big bunch of leaves in it and using cold water wash the leaves really good. Then on the stove heat up two quarts of pure water from the bottles.Put a quarter more in for evaporation. When the water starts to boil put two or three heaping handfuls of leaves in. Turn the heat down to simmer and cover for ten minutes. Strain the tea water through an old but clean white t-shirt. What you don't drink right away you can refrigerate and use later. One cup and if you have a couch made of concrete you will think it is the softest thing you ever sat on. Why, because lobelia inflata is the strongest natural muscle relaxant on earth. Hope this helps.
This sounds interesting because of " One cup and if you have a couch made of concrete you will think it is the softest thing you ever sat on. "

and Doxylamine succinate is one of the many sedating antihistamines used by itself as a short-term sedative, in combination with other drugs as a night-time cold and allergy relief drug, and a preparation is prescribed in combination with vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) to prevent morning sickness in pregnant women. It is also the most effective over-the-counter sedative available in the United States, and is more sedating than some prescription hypnotics. In the United States doxylamine succinate is the active ingredient in the over-the-counter sleep-aid tablets branded as Unisom; however, according to the manufacturer's website, the gel-cap form contains diphenhydramine hydrochloride instead. It is the sedating ingredient of NyQuil. Doxylamine succinate is used in general over-the-counter sleep-aids branded as Somnil, Dozile, Donormyl, Restavit and Unisom-2.It is also available in combination with vitamin B6 and folic acid under the brand name Evanorm (marketed by Ion Healthcare).
