    On the rare occasion.

    Mostly because I have a mental illness.

    Tbh, OP, you probably aren't as abnormal as you think. You can't see other people's 'inner workings'.

    Quite often. But then my dad's bipolar and my mum's depressive, so it's hardly surprising.

    You sound just like one of them idiots who thinks they're so "individual" and "free thinking" and ****, when really, you're just another sheep.

    A tsr member has a cartoon in their sig which sums it up perfectly. (load of people on a train each thinking how they're the only free thinker when really, they're all thinking exactly the same)
    Thanks, it is unfortunate I sound that way as I'm not. I was just musing..

    I'm sure of my sanity

    you lot... :creep:
    The fact that you think you're sure of sanity makes me worry about your actual sanity. You may live in an imaginary world where you don't question your sanity because you assume you're sane. That is what the goverment wants you to think. :woo:

    I am fairly sure of my sanity, in no way am I normal in terms of many of my thoughts, but that does not make me a madman. Falling from the brink of sanity is never far away though, I can consciously realise the abnormality in my thoughts and so act rationally with them in the background, however if something was to break that thought limitation process, you should probably lock me up and throw away the key, because I'd be dangerous.

    Most people are sane, we all just have varying perceptions of the world.

    What do you think when you're on a bus? are you on the level where you look at the other passengers and think "wow, they all think they're so free thinking , at least I know that my thoughts aren't that unique"? Because then the other passengers might be thinking that too, and you'd be in pretty much the same situation as the train thing

    Generally phychotic people don't consider themselves as crazy. Obviously everyone wants to believe they are unique, and without reading through the supplies I can only guess this has been confirmed multiple times. None of you are differeny/insane

    look at the poll results, most people likes to think they're something special. And tbh when I'm on the bus I think "please smelly bloke don't sit next to me". I rarely compare myself to others in that way because frankly I couldn't give a **** if what I think is the same or different.

    What is the criteria for sanity in this thread?

    The occasional musings and pondered thoughts or actually being sectioned under the mental health act?

    Can't really define it, have a very tangential thinking pattern and make weird leaps of logic other people don't seem to see at all.

    If thinking about eating children makes me insane, then I guess I am!

    but seriously none of you are unique

    I just look at questioning your own sanity as a sign of..intelligence.

    This thread reminded me of this, for those that haven't heard of it -

    In this World War II novel, an air force regulation states that a man is to be considered insane if he is willing to continue to fly dangerous missions. To be relieved of such duties all he has to do is ask. But one who makes such a rational request shows that he is, in fact, sane. Here is an extract from the novel.
    Doc Daneeka said, "He (Orr) has to be crazy to keep flying combat missions after all the close calls he's had. Sure I can ground Orr. But first he has to ask me to." "That's all he has to do to be grounded?" "That's all. Let him ask me." "And then you can ground him?" Yossarian asked. "No, then I can't ground him." "You mean there's a catch?" "Sure there is a catch," Doc Daneeka replied. "Catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn't really crazy."
