I hate it when people think they're so unique and special, and describe others as 'mindless drones' living 'automatic existences' its like **** you man, everyones out here living our lives and you're just walking around being weird, you hip cunt.
#37 to #14 - John Cena (08/07/2013) [-]
You know what, though. We are all special, but we pretend we're drones and it's really sad. We spend our lives trying to be what we're told to be. We never tell the person next to us on the bus that yesterday was **** and we just want someone to share a hug with. We are so emotionally repressed in western society that we cannot even give a compliment without being looked at like a weirdo. I want to tell the people I see, who look like they're not having a great day, that it gets better if you keep trying, or that they can live their dreams as long as they believe in them. But I don't, because I'd be shamed for doing so. I'd be looked at funny or cursed out, so I blend in with the crowd and pretend that I'm a drone like everyone else, yearning to speak my mind and tell someone how I feel, or ask them how they feel, without being a for for it.

The comic is saying how EVERYONE is "special", but we all perceive everyone else as "normal" when in reality we are all "special."

I mean yeah, implying that people are special snowflakes better than other people. Happiness is such a broad phase. These people who are described in the picture as dull and boring are happy. **** it if they don't fit your grand perceptions of what a human being should be like. If you're happy exploring the world, learning all kinds of languages, absorbing knowlege, and all that fine. Just know that for everyone one of you, there's somebody who's happy with a steady job and a family, one he can take on fishing trips or watch a football game with. A job that let's him relax in a recliner with his feet in bunny slippers while he drinks a bud. Everyone is different. To say that everyone is a boring conformist and should be more like you doesn't make them less of a conformist, because if everyone is this zany, eccentric thrill seeker, then that's the new norm, and the so called "outsiders" are the ones watching the Patriots at Ravens game in their underwear.

TLR, **** Labels.

i just love to burst your bubble so i guess i will none of you are special or diffrent your all just dust in the wind and no amount of origanality or boldness will make you anythink more than just another brick in the wall. this **** is just some gay ass self confedince bull ****

Last I checked, bricks didn't contemplate the meaning of existence, or propose that there is no meaning. Bricks don't create art to express ourselves or form relationships or feel compassion, sadness, happiness and anger. They don't strive to explore the stars or strive to understand the world around us. A brick cannot be amazed by the stars in the sky, or peer through a telescope and see the gasses of a nebula spewed across the sky like a beautiful painting, and recall that those very elements they see in the sky, are what compose their very flesh and bones. A brick cannot dissect the atom and peer into the fabric of our universe, just because it wants to see. A brick cannot contemplate how life emerged or how it will end, a brick cannot feel the fear that the thought of death brings, or the excitement that living life inspires. Bricks don't wonder about their own existence.

If the human being is nothing but a brick, that's one hell of a brick.

The point of this post  I would think, is how alone we are. We are living in a world where we have trouble making connections and reaching out to people, "we root for the underdog because we see ourselves as the underdog" stuff like that.   
   
And let's be honest. We aren't all the same, we aren't all "normal". In a sense no one is normal, but can you honestly say everyone is "special" Many of us are just average, and some less so.    
   
So don't start with that "We're all special so no one is" crap. The world is not equal. We are not equal. That's all there is to it.

I found your review awfully interesting. Being the complex being we are, it's difficult to say there is "normal" people. What's normal? What's avarege, what's special and what's different?

I actually think there is a level of "alikeness" if that's a word, which makes an individual feel more related to others. Even though I'm not sure because I almost never relate to anyone and there's people in my class who is friendly with everyone. Though that doesn't mean they do relate...

Also, my notion that "people is special" changes so much with my mood and last impressions, I don't even know.

What do you think?
User avatar #33 to #32 - infinitereaper (07/28/2013) [-]
All I know is that we are all the same, and all very different, equality is an illusion, and that we are ultimately living contradictions.

Implying only a few people ask themselves things. No, we simply don't bog down every damn person's day with random pointless **** constantly because we understand that most interactions are meant to be short and sweet. We don't interact heavily with random people because it will get in their way and because you never know, they might die in a few hours.

You're not special for feeling like society is lame and all. Just means you're a stupid teenager. Not like "all teenagers are stupid." You individually are both stupid, and a teenager.
User avatar #15 to #9 - internetrage (07/24/2013) [-]
even a lot of the supposedly intelligent teenagers are pretty stupid tbh. its in the job description.

There is nothing at all wrong with fitting in and being normal. Why the **** would you want to stick out and needlessly draw attention to yourself? Don't be an attention whore. Conformity is good. Being normal makes life a lot easier. Here's a quote for all of you:
"The Nail That Sticks Out Gets Hammered."

Take what you want from that.

But what if I want to be the hammer? or rather, why do I have to be a nail?
#29 to #27 - John Cena (07/24/2013) [-]
You're not the ******* hammer, you just aren't. And you are a nail. There's no changing this metaphor, this is the way it is. You are the nail.
User avatar #30 to #29 - infinitereaper (07/24/2013) [-]
Maybe it's that's kind of thinking that keeps people in the gutter. Every great human being in history would attest otherwise. If we're all nails I suppose we aren't all forged from the same steel.

You're just a loser who's already given up.
#31 to #29 - John Cena (07/25/2013) [-]
By all accounts it would mean that there's no hammer in the first place, but - rather - nails nailing each other down.

It's funny, but after a while even that gets boring. Now I've got some hammering to do.

Our individual definition of truth and the world is in perception. Keep this in mind. Leary isn't trying to split the world into "US" and "THEM", he's stating something that everybody everywhere must have thought at some point in their lives, perhaps and probably every day of their lives. All of us are "US", all of us are the subject of this story.
