You've got to be a little bit off the mark to find your way here in the first place. Beyond that, the simple and sad fact is, once you're here, the weirder you are, the better you fit in--

Sheeooot. A couple of years ago I tried to start an "ugliest" Catter
contest, and submitted this as first entry, but Mighty Joe O closed the thread (with apology to me) because he was afraid it would deteriorate too fast.

The question is: weirder qua Mudcat or weirder as relates to general population?

If we are looking for weird within the group, it must be some quiet, genteel soul who never cusses, gets into arguments, starts irrelevant threads and who posts mostly music related stuff.

Maybe Jim Dixon? Gene?....there are so few...

Who's weirdest? Am I allowed to name names...maybe that Walkabout guy?

I was weird before it became cool to be weird. Then I got more normal, but normal isn't cool. Either way I'm not cool, and I preferred weird to normal.

How does one find oneself back to weird?

What is weird?

Well, one index of weirdness is the number of delusory realities the individual seeks to impose on others. From that point of view one would have to admit Martin Gibson, Little Hawk, Sawzall, Rapaire, and a few other notables to the lists.

"seeks to impose on others"?????

What a shocking and unfair mischaracterization of my creative literary inventions (which are only of the highest)! I seek to impose nothing! I merely share with others who are of like mind, as a way of spreading joy and inspiration here and there, wherever it might be needed or appreciated.

Certain cretins here (I shall name no names) are incapable of appreciating my kindly and illuminating efforts. Well, that is the way of the world. One encounters a certain number of swine along the path. The pity of it is that these very same ruffians and ill-intentioned Philistines, rather like the person who posted at 11 Feb 10 - 01:27 PM above, feel it incumbent upon them to attack my worthy contributions! I am sure that in time the negative karma that inevitably accrues to their hostile actions will catch up with them, and in full measure.

Amos weird, naw, just a frustrated poet with a lot of seafaring verse in his head.

Rapaire? His post likeness seems to be more noble-like than notable.

Sawzall may be a bit more wired on topics than being weird.

Little Hawk does not seem to thread or post like a weird fellow....He introduces a lot of interesting threads....though it's hard not to recall the image of soaking his feet in a basin of his own urine (or some borrowed from a neighbour) while strumm'in out a Dylan song.....maybe this thought is a bit on the weird side.....but, it could just be me, and not LH.

Who gets to decide? Who do you trust? who is the weirdest? Where is the vote?

We are all wierd, We are all wrong. We can never be certain.


In a free society you get to decide with your vote. You get to decide in your E Pluribus Unum sort of way even when you don't have any understanding about what you are deciding. This goes to show how we end up in such a catch 22 nonsensical society but that is the nature of democracy and freedom. It is messy sausage making. Our American founding fathers knew the importance of freedom in a society which has academic and scientific freedom to speak, speculate and research new ideas which lead to discoveries that help a nation grow stronger.

Some societies which deny freedom, do not allow a forum of its citizens to decide important issues and instead have a tyrant, king, religion or political bureau decide issues for the nation. These kinds of systems or governments decide just like an individual in that they too can be totally ignorant about what they are deciding. A free society or a closed oligarchy are much alike in this way. In America today we even have people marching under the banner of freedom who in fact work in concert to eliminate freedom in scientific research, speech and education. The irony is that the these religious organizations are often sponsored by corporations that want no laws to be passed that would limit their ability to do anything they can dream up.

I contend that no matter who you decide to trust or support in decision making, they are most certainly wrong, corrupt or ignorant of the outcome of any particular decision. Yes it's all guess work based on egotistical greedy notions with a weak grasp on outcomes and correct answers. Such is the nature of politics, human intelligence and grand mistakes.

In the twentieth century when the theory of Relativity was proven after WW 1 when light was shown to bend from the gravity of the sun, there were plenty of people and organizations who were completely ignorant of what that scientific discovery meant to our understanding and growth as an intelligent species. Some people mistakenly transmuted the meaning of Relativity for their own purposes to a political philosophy that justified the most cruel and demented concept of moral relativism. Hitler, Stalin and a host of other authoritarians based many of their actions on this perverse idea of moral relativism instead of the well grounded concepts of clear cut right and wrong.

While everyone can be ignorant of what they are deciding the decisions get made anyway. We decide if we trust a scientist who probably has certain self interests, or we may decide to trust a Corporation or political party that is certainly self interested, or to trust God who has any number of self interested people speaking for him and/or her.
We do not even get a right to vote on the most important things. We did not get to vote if we wanted nuclear weapons in the first place. We do not get a vote in the release of nuclear weapons. Now that we have religious state governments who command the use of nuclear weapons we have reason to worry about their religious beliefs in inevitable Armageddon, just as other nations worry about America using nuclear weapons in anger again.

There is probably no issue that demonstrates decision making in the dark that bio ethics. Like splitting the atom, the most important things tend to be very small things. For example DNA is rather small. The political battles over stem cells have all the usual voices speaking at once with little or no understanding of what their opinion, if made into law, will create. Some religious voices seem to say that human knowledge is wrong and worship alone is right. Scientists with good intentions may not know the outcome of some projects which could affect the DNA of every living thing. Corporations may not care about anything except a big short term profit and legal larceny of life itself.

Deciding or voting to allow or deny the next generation of science that may lead to relative immortality or genetic manipulation that could lead to the execution of bio diversity, will be done with all the same limitations and ignorance that has given us past catastrophes. We will make our best guess and throw our dart. Some of us will not even see a target and others will end up hitting the cat by accident.

As in atomic relationships, there is no certainly, there are only likelihoods. So whenever you say, "you are wrong" or "you are an idiot", they are both true; for you and me, them or us. I contend that the more history you know or the more knowledge you have in general, the more likely the likelihoods you believe, will to be true.

You are all as wierd as the wierd uncertain stuff of which you are made.

No. But the hamburger was part of it. A BBQd burger was actually eaten off the paper plate that was first thrown in "Frisbee style", giving Walter Fredrick "Fred" Morrison the idea. The fact is that the burger was so thick that it slipped out of his hands and landed on the lawn. He swore terribly and he was taken to task by the hostess of the BBQ. Still angry, he grabbed the plate and flung it at her and VOILA... the Frisbee was born.

Oh... I know the "offical" story is about cake pans. But, back then, they had to prissy up the story in order to market it. I mean, they would not have been able to sell it under Walter's original name choice, the "FUCKMEE".

I don't think anyone is weird on Mudcat.

I used to think Keith was well weird - you know, the way he argues with people who fundamentally disagree with him - when anyone normal would say, allright mate if that's what you think......fair enough.

But then he said in one of his threads that he enjoyed arguing - a bit like the man in the monty Python sketch who had paid for the ten minute argument. The it sort of made sense. Not weird at all - he's just prolonging the pleasure til orgasm, or something similar.

All of us on Mudcat are a collection of wingnuts. Therefore it must follow that the parameters for "weird" on this site must be much different from the outside world. Surely here the benchmark for "weird" here must be the exact opposite to the dictionary meaning. I have always found Joe Offer to be calm, cool, and collected so I bring forth his name in nomination.

I was at a blues session last week that wasn't full. The promoter thanked us for coming and said we were doing better than other venues sponsored by the brewery but next time "bring your friends". I felt like saying:"If we had friends we wouldn't be here." Thanks to the Mudcat, in the words of Tony Hancock in The Radio Ham I've got (slightly odd) "friends all over the world: none in this country but all over the world"

Chongo Chimp, with no question. Why he continues to put up with this place is more than I can understand. Such tolerance and broad-mindedness should be rewarded, and I expect it will be when he is elected president in 2012.

I am thankful that Mudcat is weird. It's an alternative to the craziness you find on TV or in most newspapers these days which is not weird but destructive.

Weird is good. Most great artists have emerged as being weird. Great controversial ideas have been branded weird like Civil Rights, Woman's Suffrage, Abolition, Union bargaining,
stopping child labor..............

Let's all celebrate the "weird" and be thankful that people on Mudcat are not normal otherwise they wouldn't be here.

I think if someone calls you "weird" it should be accepted as a compliment.

Today Chongo The Chimp is a multi Billionaire with dozens of corporations in the communications sphere such as ELECTION monkey polls and CHIMP MESSENGER ETC.

First they laughed, Now they are clamoring for access.

If only he remembered his humble beginnings and connected with those who gave him a start. But he has become reclusive, weird and paranoid of his handlers.

This thread has been a great thread given the banter posted. It is a fun thread.

But, on a more serious note, I believe past posts are of merit regarding subdivisions of "weird". To wit, I submit:

Nastiest ignorant abusive piece of human garbage troll catergory (is easy... Gold, Silver and Bronze are matter-of-fact if you are long-time member).

Plain fuckin stunnedasmearses' that post inane shit about their pet causes is another obvious category.

So, perhaps we need to define weirdo categories, pick he top weirdo in the categories and THEN pick the winner? I mean, if that's not too weird. ?

My inane personal pet cause is to persuade people to stop hating hurting and killing each other by remedy of satire and image.

Satire can easily backfire but the image has staying power. Also people look kind of silly protesting a picture like some kind of third century iconoclast.
