It's gentle prodding on my part, my fine young sir. Calm down and have a cup of tea.

As for the whole idolization of insanity, I think it is silly. Anyone who's ever been institutionalized or has ever had to deal with a mentally ill friend/family member will tell you the same. It's not all wearing different colored socks and singing nursery rhymes in public.

True. I suppose the better word would be something along the lines of quirky, even a little bizarre?

yeah, I hate to pee on the parade, but I have to agree with this. Like, all of it.

I'm thinking that anyone who glamorizes or minimizes the word "insane" in this particular manner hasn't had the unfortunate experience of dealing with people who are actually clinically insane... or frighteningly violent insane... or malicious and sociopathic insane... or suffering from dangerous, suicidal depression due to genetic chemical imbalance... or merely struggling with things like bi-polar disorder or ADHD. So yeah, it's not all cuteness and excitement. ;)

I'm guessing the thread was meant in a "freaky, quirky, eccentric people unite!" and that's fun. but insane... not so much. language is powerful, folks. choose your words.

me, I'm not insane. I'm artsy, quirky, eccentric, atypical, non-traditional, but also totally normal. ;)

LOL. you're right, that does look funny. :) to clarify, I don't have a problem with saying something like "wow, that test was insane" or similar offhand remarks. and I can give people leeway for creating entertainment persona (like the wrestler in the avatar, or Steve Martin's "I'm a wild and crazy guy" where it's being used as a hyperbolic adjective and the person isn't making a parody of mental illness).

I do have an issue when people try to make mental illness glamorous or cute, or minimize how truly terrifying it can be, by adopting the "oh, I'm actually insane, aren't I just so edgy/adorable" stance. When they think it adds to their street cred somehow, or makes them deep, or they're so desperate to be special in some way -- such as the number of teens and college students who like to proclaim they have ADHD just because they're energetic, or claim they're manic-depressive because they think it makes them sound more artistic.

It's like, um, I've actually met people who were clinically "insane," it's alternately terrifying and painful. Sometimes downright dangerous to be around them. I also have friends that suffer from real conditions like bi-polar, ADHD, suicidal depression. None of them think it makes them quirky and cute, or gives them emo cred, or is a benefit. None of them would chime in on a thread like this and go "oh, me too! aren't those sucky meds great? how about that weight gain? and the inability to maintain relationships? WOOOOO!" ;)

So while I don't think the OP meant anything derogatory, it's kinda weird to see people being like "wooo! I'm insane! yay mental illness!" I'd rather see another word used there that's both more accurate and more descriptive. :)

Juts putting this out there That insane means both mentally ill but in technical definition it does also refer to absurd or foolish people. An yes I do agree that the glorification of mental insanity is not something we should be proud of, the scientific and medical world no longer uses the word insane which i think allows it to be used for those of us who see ourselves as quirky.

I am simply mentioning this as i dont wish to offend anyone or convey the idea that i glorify forms of insanity, i just wanted to explain my perspective on the word. I stand by my afore mention term of being a mild mannered excentric...

Also some tea would be delightfull

I'm so boring and normal that I feel I might be the strange one in a time when kids like to pretend they're "insane".



Edit : Also, remember that "insane" isn't actually a diagnosis. It's a legal term and nothing more.

I think kids these days like to play at being "insane" because it's an easy way to be "special" and "different" without having to actually do anything noteworthy or interesting. I don't judge too harshly, it's hard to feel worthwhile in a world with almost 7 billion people - why not try to give yourself an edge by aping a "special" condition that suddenly sets you statistically apart ?

THANK YOU!!! Look, this was not meant to offend anybody or get anyone to think that I think being mentally ill is "cool" or "fun". People just use the word "insane" for people that are quirky or eccentric so that was all that I meant by it. I just saw Volnixshin say:

There needs to be a thread started by someone else, titled, "Anyone else insane?" I would post there. Constantly.

And I thought "there's a fun idea!" so I started this thread.

Why my dear sir? Why? Because I have to be home to help my parents. My car couldn't make it any further, what with the general PLOWS REFUSING TO GO ON THE ROAD. So I dressed like Spider-Man Noir (only because it was in my car, and is possibly the warmest set of clothing I have ever owned.) And set out through the blizzard. It was enlightening, tiring, adventurous and treacherous. But I like to think it was worth it. I mean, aside from helping my dad and mom through a harsh storm when they live in the boonies. Though the many blisters I formed on my toes scream otherwise.

Though I try not to get myself caught up in the wanderings of off-topic forums, this one caught my interest. It seems almost a kind of survey; one telling whom or how many cosplayers will admit insanity.

The problem comes in the fact that insanity, when openly admitted, can be simply the desire to be such, or perhaps halfway there and realizing it; whereas the truly insane will claim sanity.

Does this make you re-think your answers? I hope not. ^_^

As for my sanity, it depends on what I brainwash myself to believe. At the moment I would claim sanity, but as I've pointed out, this could mean quite the opposite. The only way to have a good idea of the true answer is by action and multiple outside observers.

By the way, I would LOVE a cup of tea. Plenty of sugar please; I have twenty-eight sweet teeth. ^_^

*drops eleven and three-quarter sugar cubes into Nyditch's tea and hands it over*

I think self brainwashing is VERY effective. In fact, insanity and sanity is like beauty, in the beholders eyes. To the insane, they are sane, to the sane, they are insane. So therefore if insane is sane, then sane is insane, making insanity the root of sanity while sanity branches from insanity.

I notice that there are alot of references to the mad hatter's tea party in this thread. Did you know that the mad hatter is based off of history in that gentleman of the early 1800s used liquid mercury to give their top hats a shine. It would quickly turn to dust which the unfortunate soul would inhale causing brain damage, and mad hatter-esque type of behavior.

Fraid you're not entirely right, despite your claims that reading an internet email make you a genius. The phrase "mad as a hatter" also has roots in even OLDER phrases like mad a march hare, made as a maybuck, mad as a wet hen, etc. Hatter pretty much just worked its way in. Also, Alice in Wonderland wasn't the creation of the "mad hatter" phrase.
It's complex, so here's a better debunking. http://www.snopes.com/language/phrases/hatter.asp

My information did not come from an internet email. Nor did I claim to be a Genius.

The claim comes from there, and anyone who does some actual research would know it's not a fact. Also, randomly dropping in some false internet trivia was largely unneccesary.

I am sorry if you were offended but isnt this the random forum. Also, the claim comes from where? Snopes.com? No I dont think so.

Since Snopes is the foremost website in historical information and the article in question was not published in a peer reviewed journal. You go right ahead and get your information from Snopes. Me... I prefer more credible sources.

Ms. Origin, your reasoning is astoundingly enthralling. Your point is peerlessly prepared, serving a sense of scholarly stupefaction.

And thank you for the sugar. A quarter cube more could have been a crime against both reason and lack thereof. I'm not sure why, I didn't write the rules (though I'm not sure anybody did).

Mr. Nyditch I thank you for your sincere expression of your gratitude towards my logic. I do indeed take a philisophical approach to the winding road called life, and having fellow homo sapiens give approval towards me moves my very soul.

As to the rules? I believe the rules were written through the very DNA of our sanity (or insanity) and is ingrained in who we are.
