I don't think so. I think they'd be too crazy to act not-crazy.
But saying you're not crazy when you are crazy is crazy, to a normal person, but normal to crazy person: that's what makes them crazy! So the only way to distinguish a crazy from a normal is by what they think is crazy and what they think is normal; and one thinking that (e.g.) Gross's craziness sounds normal, and then proceeding to say that they themselves are not crazy, and perceiving this, in light of the previous circumstance, as normal, is the very paradigm of insanity!
Once someone calls you crazy any reaction will always be skewered to confirm the suspicion. Thanks to those retarded 'philosophers' you are doomed once a serious accusation is thrown out. Oh and you all want to get with your mums.
I don't know who these ‘philosophers’ are; but, man, you crazy...
Yeah, I can't take credit for than dain bramage speech. I lifted it from a post by Charles. Seemed to fit in the 'delusions of grandeur' category. Than SECOND DEPARTMENT and all that.
Maybe I am crazy? Yes, I am!
But crazy people don't know that they are, so I'm sane.
Now that's crazy!
Don't worry Grossenschwamm, you are not god. What you ultimately consider when you are angry is too destructive for whatever powers that be to allow you to transcend to any godlike level. You are safe and so are we.
Isn't that just conjecture? Like, ‘Don't worry: everything will be all right’?
Edit: In fact, it doesn't even make any sense.
What a crazy thing to say at a time like this Wayne.
Pfft, you would think that, you crazy bastard!
While a single flap of a butterfly wings can alter the variables of weather to such an extent that weather is significantly affected, it is more often the case that a single flap of a butterfly wings will no effect at all. So too are effects we have upon the world around us. Much of our influence is negated by the influences of other, but every once in a while our influence is amplified by others. When we become aware that a single "flap" of our "wings" had an incredible impact we become tempted to believe in our own power. But we have no power, except as a single atom of water in a stream of like-minded individuals.
I like this guy/gal!
Thanks for the compliment.
But since you are calling everyone else crazy, I thought you should know that I have been called crazy in real life for saying that I communicate mind-to-mind with someone (my soul mate). Though since then, I have had a few mind-reading moments with others; normally due to heightened emotional states.
I once responded to someone when I thought I heard this person say something along the lines of "What, do you want me to read your mind?" with the comment "No, just my body language." However, based upon the surprise, the fugitive glance at the others present, and my own emotional state, I think the thought was never vocalized. I never confirmed it with the person by asking if I read this person's mind ... too intimate of a question. Of course, I am a rational enough of a person to be aware of the possibility that my mind interpreted the person's body language and translated it into words ... but that was not my impression of what happened.
But such is life: full of events that are not, nor cannot be, full understood.
Of course, being an INFJ may have something to do with it.
Man, you crazy...
Why state the obvious?
Oddly enough, in the real world, I'm rather sane. I vent here. Sure, I'm irresponsible, but that hardly makes me crazy. What might make me crazy is my paranoia that something is going to come out of the darkness and kill me. And, perhaps, my flip-flopping on whether or not I'm crazy may make me crazy.
