Negating things because you can
    #8903829 - 09/09/08 09:23 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I know people do this, and I know people know that people do this. But there is no way to call some one out for it.

Whenever I will propose a different way of looking at something that is different from the norm (not because I want to negate the norm, I just do some things differently as we all do to an extent) people will be very quick to tell me that I'm wrong and that it should be done this way.

Why don't people keep their headlights off while it is still very obviously well lit outside and the sun isn't setting yet?
'Because it will soon, and because it makes them more visible.'

Crappy example I know, but it is all I could think of at the time.

But I'm sure you can all relate in one way or another. Social normals are so incredible easy to back up and go with, and thinking differently is so incredibly difficult to do in the face of some one that has been conditioned by social norms.

I just don't understand how people can be so quick to scoff at things.

Like back in high school I wrote a report on how marijuana should be legalized along with mushrooms and some other psychedelics (cliche yes, but it was one fucking awesome report). The librarian at the high school looked at my computer monitor and let out a 'are you serious?!' and looked at me. I stared at her and said 'yes' in a very serious tone and she left.

I need an effective way to make people see my point of view better when it differs from the norm. It is just so frustrating sometimes.

i was wondering that today as i sat in an ffice...people are ready to argue thier point over and over again without even changing what they are saying...

it is a sickness...sickness of the mind...

I am very happy that I don't have that sickness. I'm sure I do to an extent, but when I argue with some one, and they prove themselves to be correct and I agree with their argument more, I don't get angry at that person, I adopt their argument.

I don't see why people have to be so set in their beliefs, it really is a sickness of sorts.

as long as something is taboo prudes are going to give you dirty looks, you might as well get used to it.

as far as the headlights example.....i think they are called day time running lights

I reccomend a shiny new .357 magnum, nothing gets the point across quicker than nickel plating

yeah some cars the headlights are always on. im not talking about the orange lights.

pris has a point though, the threat of cold hard steel running through ones body can make a person open to suggestion

hmmm... Damn... Maybe I will get a tranquilizer gun, but fill the darts with LSD-water.

Why has no one done that yet? That idea is awesome.
