The first question.

So if you are going to describe something as normal, there is probably no way to define that except in comparison to the other things.

For example, to say you have a normal car, or house, or job, or aftershave collection means that yours is the baseline from which every other of that type differs. By declaring yours to be the normal one, you are saying that every other one is just a little off.

With that in mind, the question is: What if you specifically are the normal person? Is that a problem? Or do you hope so?

Just asking.

  1. normal=average=common? Yes, would be a problem. Always strived to be different. Small island syndrome I guess--you see yourself coming and going.

  2. I know I am not normal. I might be abnormally normal or slightly normal. If I was the epitome of Normal Standard I think it would be funny to see so called Odd people.

  3. Nah, I think I have too much of a dark side, I like to think normal people are happier than I am.

  4. That is an interesting way to look at it. I personally don't really think that I am normal because the world does not seem designed exactly with me in mind, but then again, I think everyone thinks that.

    Except this one guy...

  5. Honestly, I think the world would be a lot better... but I'm pretty sure I'm not normal.

  6. Normal doesn't exist.
    But, my 'definition' of normal is thus:
    "Normal is what the most common factor is. It's what the majority is/has. So if your cologne is normal, it means everyone else has it, and it is accepted. But no one can be normal, because to be the norm, everyone else must reflect the exact same qualities. And nobody is the same. So nobody is normal".

Question #155

If you had a super power that did not seem immediately useful, like being able to change people's accents from a distance, (say from Brooklyn to French,) what would it be and would you try to use it to fight crime, make money, or just a parlor trick?
