I’m a Weirdo! (And you can too!)

It’s true. I am, in fact, a weirdo. I am not like other people in many, many different ways. Is this a bad thing though? The term weird usually has negative connotations associated with it. However, I disagree. The term weird is very relative. What is weird to one person may not be completely mundane to another. For example, in some ancient societies, animals were considered sacred. In fact, some were considered to be more important than most living, breathing, thinking humans. In most of the modern world, especially first world countries, this is not the case (well, unless you are a member of PETA!). The word ‘weird’ has to do with something being strange or abnormal. In this case, weird is not so bad when you think about it. What’s so great about being normal? Why be the type of person who does not make any kind of splash and contributes to holding the status quo in place? People like Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, Edward Jenner, Louis Pasteur, John F. Kennedy, Louis Armstrong are all weird. They truly are abnormal. The works of these men were all revolutionary; it changed their specific fields and altered the course of the world. Being weird; fighting the status quo; working against the mainstream; so many different ways to say the same thing and yet people still hold a negative view of the word weird. Why are people ‘naturally’ drawn to act the same as everyone else? Why do so many people try to become lost in the crowd? Why do people try to throw the stones, which are their lives, into the river of society without even trying to make a splash? Who knows? Maybe it’s just human nature. Maybe it’s been ingrained into our brains by a society which hates freethinking innovators. All I know is I’m weird and proud of it! I do what I believe is right, regardless of societal norms and will continue to do so! I’m a weirdo.

Libertarians, and Some Misconceived Perceptions of Them

I hate when people hear ‘libertarian’ and assume :

A. Corporate-loving hater of the common man.

B. Selfish bastard.

C. Egotistical scum.

A. Libertarians love the common man. Personally, I’m all about small businesses! They’re the real backbone of the economy, and America in general. Corporations don’t like less regulation, in fact, many of them gain from Big Government policy, such as infrastructure, weapons production and the like. I can’t stand most corporations because they tend to muck up the water. Corporations (not all) tend to be all about deceit. How can nine out of ten dentists recommend all of the different brands of toothpaste?!? Personally, the best products should be able to be bought without too much confusion and the companies who provide said products should be rewarded by the free market. We, as consumers, vote on what we believe is best with our dollars. We trade our hard earned money for what we believe is worth it. Money is just the medium by which we trade our value to society.

B. Libertarians are not selfish in the sense of wanting the best for their fellow humans. Most of my good libertarian folk just believe that, for the most part, people should earn it for themselves. Of course, most libertarians are not unreasonable extremists. Virtually no one wants to get rid of charitable programs. They fight for the good of those who cannot provide for themselves (the handicapped, infirm, Third World Countries, etc.). There just shouldn’t be the government’s guns forcing donations. That is essentially what welfare programs are. Pay or go to jail. Help the needed or spend time as a criminal in a correctional facility. Are you kidding me? It doesn’t sound so good when said so bluntly, eh?

C. Are most libertarians just looking out for themselves? Maybe in certain ways, but in general, no. Libertarians believe in doing what you wish, as long as your actions do not cause harm to others. Just because you are a minority, should you be forced to do as the majority dictates? Why should those who choose to marry another man be denied this basic right? No harm is done to others. The problem with progresses thinking, such a libertarianism, anarchism and he like is that believers in these schools of thought would never force them upon others. This would be immoral. On the other hand, however, those with imperialistic, deceptive, delusional political viewpoints *cough cough* Republicans *cough cough* Democrats *cough cough* have no problem forcing their own sick agendas on as many people who are dumb or uneducated enough to swallow the little pills given to them.

Those who believe in thought would never force thinking upon people. Support it, absolutely; promote it, youbetcha; tell others because it benefits all parties involved, of course! Those who believe in unthinking, however, are glad to keep others from thinking. Oh, the woes of a rational human being.

Counting Sheep

Staring at the ceiling

I can’t sleep

The space for my thoughts to dive

Is unfathomably deep

 

Thinking about school

Thinking about life

Thinking about the great things

Thinking about my eternal strife

 

My thoughts constantly race

From point to point they leap

My thoughts get bizarre

I hope my sanity I keep

 

Thinking about people

Thinking about me

Thinking about what I am

Thinking about what I could be

 

Eventually my thoughts begin to slide to a stop

My eyes slowly close, I smile and peacefully drift off

Human Mating Rituals

Bugs are weird. Right?

All animals (including humans), insects, fish, etc. reproduce. They instinctively do so. Of course, each individual species does this in different ways. For example, certain butterflies, such as the ones above, attract mates by flashing the designs on their wings in a way other butterflies find attractive, for whatever reason. As a human being, I think this is way weird. When you think about it, though, men do some pretty weird stuff to attract mates. Imagine viewing human mating rituals from the perspective of an alien observer (which probably has been done and studied thoroughly). Guys lifting weights to build muscles they will never use because they think girls like it. Men, with functioning brains (probably not, actually), spending hundreds of dollars on fancy jeans because they think the more money they spend on their meaningless clothes the more girls will want to rip said clothes off of them. Earned money is spent on fake tans, that new hair cut (which everyone already has), fancy shoes and similar appearance-based purchases. Why? To attract the kind of women who buy into fake tans, steroid based muscles, etc. Women who tend to be shallow and stupid (or at least pretend to be stupid). This is only good if you yourself are stupid, in which case you two can go ahead and make stupid babies together.

 

 

Medicated World

A pill for this

A pill for that

A pill to make your dick hard

A pill to make you lose fat

Look around you

Check out all the brain dead

Concerned about nothing

But keeping their dick fed

Whats all this mean

I ask myself

The world is sick

It needs some serious help

And not the help

A pill can provide

It has to be discovered

Deep down inside

We should not be afraid of policemen!

We should not be afraid of policemen! By definition, policemen should be the ones protecting the common man. Yet, who the hell likes cops? Should we all think they are bastard pigs? No. They should help us. Yes, some officers of the law catch murderers, thieves and the like. And of course, individual policemen can be nice people. So can drug dealers. Yet, I hate cops because I get a speeding ticket for driving 72 in a 65, and there are people freaking out because they could do real JAIL TIME for having weed in their pocket. I don’t even think drugs are good, but still. Come on, some eighteen year old toking up in his backyard does not hurt anyone. Some say, “Not true! He’s hurting himself!” Alright. We can agree to disagree, even though medical science disagrees with you. Yes, people can become unmotivated pot heads or whatever, but hey, that’s there life to do with as they please. Even if it does hurt them, there’s no law against me punching myself in the face is there? It’s a funny example, but a solid one. Anywho, why do we uphold a system which does not allow people to do as they please (obviously, without causing harm to others)? We literally pay money to a government who pays a policeman who we hate for giving us speeding tickets.
