By far yes I've been called the "odd duck" in just about every job, school and social setting I've ever been in.  But the good news is I guess I'm a likeable "weird" as in people don't try to avoid me.  In other words, I'm not "weird" as in that guy in Walmart who everyone runs from in the store because he's shouting obscenities at canned goods.  That and if they call me weird its usually to my face in a fun manner and never in a negative way.   Thats probably because I call myself "weird" more than anyone else.   BounceGiggle  I have to say here around most of you fine folks, I feel quite normal.   Thumbup

I'm about the same way,I think. People like me...but I think they think I'm weird anyway. But in a good way. I think. Like you, I don't feel out of place....just know that I am...not . Here I amok kindered souls... Smile

Not that I think anybody here is weird! I just KNOW we are okay....!

Of course...that may be my own perception. About uhhhh...I dunno...Even when I was a crazy punk rocker,old farmers liked me. But I KNOW they think I'm weird.I was not a big chick magnet...even though I was super sexy and cool.(  Lookingup )

Thats the thing with me too mainly because I have a wide array of interests.  For example, I can talk passionately about vegetable gardening and cooking with an older person but they are shocked to find out I'm into other things like horror films and heavy metal music.   BounceGiggle

Opening up to women has been a struggle in the past for me.  Hell, opening up to anyone new is hard for me.  I think its because at first I'm afraid the person won't get my humor.  I'm very dry/sick in the humor department and some people may think I'm serious when I'm not.  However, there have been some lovely ladies who "get" me right away.  Oddly, its never the ones I expected to get me like this one hot blonde in my biology class in college.  Turns out she had a sicker sense of humor than me. 

Nowadays, depending on the social situation, I tend to be more open towards new people I meet.  However, in generally there is always that anxiety boiling somewhere.

Well,nowadays I don't give a flying fXck what people think of me. If they think I'm weird...that's okay with me. I used to feel self concious about it........then I wore it like a Badge of Indepence....now... I don't care what they think. Nothing really affects me as far as what strangers think. I just babble. Most folks still like me though...even though I have been in hibernation for years.

Most people don't find me weird, just the people that seem drawn to me. I seem to be a living magnet for the strange, odd, and weird. If a person, event, or anything else fits into the catagory of weird then eventually it finds me.

When people first meet me they tend to think I'm weird, but once they get to know me they know I'm weird. But they accept it and more often than not enjoy it. Anyone who doesn't think I'm weird from the start usually changes their tune the first time I tell them that I would gladly eat human flesh if it were offered to me fresh and cooked properly like any piece of meat.  Drink

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #9 on: February 01, 2009, 10:53:36 PM »

I started off answering yes, but at the last second I changed my vote to "Who cares?" I have yet to find a place where I truly feel like I fit in; I'm far too dry for most people, though, like Darksider, when people "get" me, they love my sense of humor. Most people think I'm very serious all the time, right up until they realize I can't resist a punch line and will ridicule almost anything (myself included). Because I come across as serious, most people will take me as an authority on almost any subject, so sometimes I have fun convincing them of truly ridiculous things (I once convinced a young woman that Santa Anna won at the Alamo by driving Sherman tanks over the walls). I always let people off the hook, though, eventually. I'm way too nice, so I guess some people may think it's phony, but I really am just a nice guy. I have a strong personality, but it is also a very quiet one, so some people try to run all over me. Sometimes I let them, but only when it is about something I would have given in on anyway. I have spent most of my life alone (very few if any friends), so I have been stuck in my own skull; I like who I am and see no reason to change just to fit in with people who wouldn't like me for who I am. I had that attitude even in high school, and that hasn't changed. I have very singular (but also very broad) tastes, in film, in music, in food, in people, in pretty much everything, but I make very few recommendations because most people tend to ignore my suggestions anyway.

Thus concludes the "way more than anyone cared to know about Derf" section. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, "Afro-Mullets: Disgustingly Silly or a Trend Whose Time Has Come?"

If not for us weird people, how would the normal ones know who they are?

Lessee . . .. I frequently say the word "nostrils" for no apparent reason. 
I belch the names of current and former Presidents.
I refer to my students as "squirmly little yuppie larva".
and I randomly read street and highway signs backwards while driving.

"Dallas Zoo", for instance, becomes "Ooz Sallad".

Yes.
Of course, whenever the observation is openly made, I always respond with, "I can't believe you've actually known me all this time, and it's taken you that long to figure that out."

Naturally, they typically reply, "Well, I always did know, I just didn't want to say anything."
To which I reply, "Well, you should've said something sooner; I was starting to wonder about you."

Better stop for that POTS sign!

I do that sometimes.  Say things backwards.
One day several years ago, my buddy Chris and I drove by a Walgreens store.
Say it backwards.  
Sneerglaw!  (Ewww!)   TeddyR
Ever since then, we always call it that.

Same goes for Burger King.
To us, it's Regrub Gnik.

I remember one time when we were driving around deciding on where to eat and we had a 3rd friend with us.  Chris suggested, "Regrub Gnik".
The 3rd friend said, "Huh??"
Then we had to explain to him what it meant.

So yeah, I'm a little weird sometimes.

Yes they do and like RC does, I wear it as a badge of honour.  TeddyR I wouldn't say weird really, more like different to the rest.

Adults think I'm a little weird (I think they see a madness in my eyes) but children think I am quite cool, even for an old guy of 41, going on 42.  Smile

As with the other friends here, I feel quite at home on this site ~ my underpants status aside, of course. Buggedout
