Knowledge Is Power.

Yes!
But...


Knowing and not doing is the same as not knowing at all.

IMPLICATION: Power is in the doing.
[Which, by the way, is easy. Um... if you know how. If you have that... if you know that ledge. And don't step off of it...]

**************************

Define "NORMAL".

[Maybe Typical is better to shoot for...]

I feel I'm fairly abnormal.
Now...WHAT in the hell is "fairly abnormal"?
Well, I postulate that there is your everyday quirky "abnormal", which we all are [in the words of the Great Georg Carlin-- "...you are unique. Just like everybody else..."].

Then there's certifiable.

I'm not so much the latter, but fer dern sher am far removed from the former...

I think I'm abnormal to a larger degree than is typical, but I have to wonder--is that normal?
I mean, does everybody wonder from time to time just exactly how abnormal they are? Hmm??

Strange...

Slainte.

Well now Cygnus,
I have never claimed to be normal. Truth be told, I think I am kinda weird, but in a good way. :D

Do I wonder how abnormal I am? nope, never. I am what I am, so why wonder about it.

Being abnormal is a good thing, if you were like everybody else, ya run the risk of being considered a sheeple. ;D

Hugs to you, my friend
~Felinae~

Nope, I don't wonder at all - I KNOW I'm nuttier than a Claxton fruitcake.

I'm fine with that.

Why be normal? Normal is no fun. I prefer quirky, eccentric, a bubble off plumb, a few ants short of a picnic, a few beers short of a six-pack, having an elevator that doesn't go all the way to the top. You get the idea.

Makes life interesting, doesn't it?

Shade and Sweetwater,
K (who has often postulated that genius and oddity go hand in hand)(and you're really quite odd, Sir)

Normalcy is highly overrated mon ami :)

Power = Control
Power is when you have every justification to lash out, but you don't..you just let it go.
You can be the most intelligent person in the room but if you lack control over yourself, your peers etc...you have no power.
So, yes, power is in the doing, but also the not doing...

Peace - Rene

"Abnormal" rocks. The rest are called sheeple!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

I am what I am, too, Lady Felinae-- which is not Popeye, else I'd be eye yam what eye yam-- and that be fairly abnormal.
Where we oppose views is, I think being so (fairly abnormal, that is) is reason enough itself to wonder... but in a good way! lol!

Slainte, Lady Fel...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Never said I wanted to be normal (shudder at the thought, actually; I LOATH the word...)

Just that I wonder how far outside of abnormal I range fairly frequently.

Or something, Kydd... something like that. I think...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

people are strange, when you're a stranger... eh, Ken m'man?

Thanks, bro...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Touche, Mademoiselle !!

And, uh... normalcy was not a word, i don't think, till some American president desired a return to " some similance of ".

I don't think.

Well, sometimes i do, i ken... hehe!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Lady Rene--
You...

You rock. Best response I seen all night...

Control.

Can I just bow down and then kiss you, now, Lady?

Thanks.

C.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Mayberry-- you rock, dude!

Oh, wait... can two of you do that? Or is it like the tango and takes two?

I dunno, dude... always envisioned you and CatLady would make a cute couple...

Thanks for not deeming this Aries a sheeple, though!!! HA!

Slainte, Mayberry!

Kyddryn said...

But wouldn't outside abnormal be...normal? Or is that applying logic where logic has no business being?

Shade and Sweetwater,
K

Ashley said...

I decided to give up on everyone else's "normal", because to me that brand of "normal" seems really odd. So I decided instead to pursue my own vision of "normal". Which has led me to the normal, completely unstrange state where I am now.

No, not Texas... The other "state".

Anyway...

Hugs,
Ashley
