My parents are getting ready for some fancy dinner party, and set out a plate of those little finger sandwiches. They didn't say anything about not touching them, so I decided to try one. Before my hand even got close, my little brother bit my hand and then said 'NO TOUCHY!'

Anyone else have psychos in the family?

Psychic or psychotic?

i got a wierd mix (eight brothers no twins, no kidding there either)

The best is the youngest, now 11. HE WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD. I blame Disney, the baddies always get the best lines or costumes (we were impressed when he anounced that he wanted to be an evil queen or a bad fairy when he grew up, chip off the old block etc). He still prefers the bad guys, currently his fav things are daleks and cybermen, and improving them.

He did ask for a big white persian cat for his next birthday....

psychic wise? Meh not so much, just the usual collection of wierd dreams that seem to come true and us knowing in advance that something is worng with one of the others.

My little cousin Melanie is 6 years old, 4'6" and about 60 pounds of solid muscle. She wants to be a football player when she grows up. Her house isn't so much child-proofed as bull-in-a-china-shop-proofed.

Psychos? My family? Naah. Just a bunch of run-of-the-mill crazy folk. Anorexia, mood swings, possible Oedipus complex, but no psychos. Although if there were a psycho in the family, it would definitely be me. And man would I make a good villian... *ponders a few more ways to kill off all the PCs before they can finish their next objective*

Well, my brother's kinda a psycho. Got in trouble for sexual harassment in the fourth grade (Parents didn't care, didn't think it was really sexual). Reads Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and George Orwell. (He's eleven ATM)
I might be psychotic too. I have seven swords on my wall, two more on a different wall, at least four knives currently within 18" of my person, And a sniper rifle in my closet. I read similar books to those my brother reads, and also big books on weapons.

EDIT: Man, that paints a scary picture of me. I'm a nice guy, really!

That's nothing, I keep a Miss World Beauty Pageant contestant locked up in my closet. She's a master in half a dozen martial arts, and I've brain-washed her to snap her bonds and go on a killer rampage with a single word.

I also collect custom designed war-chainsaws. I'm talkin' pearl-grip handles and surgical steel here.

SO DON'T MESS WITH ME, MAN! :smallfurious:

I'm psychotic. my qualifications: I bit someone for trying to steal my fries. Multiple times. He said my bite wasn't bad, left a bit of a mark.

I keep knives and daggers everywhere.

I spray painted a bat and took it to the front of my car; People now get out of my way when I tailgate them.

Rex and Regina are both products of my imagination; which parts I shall withhold for your convenience.

This raises a few questions.

2. What would you do with this?

3. YOU HAVE A SNIPER RIFLE IN YOUR CLOSET?!?!

One of my two little brothers is the psycho... he almost got kicked out of summer school, before even grade one, for violence... against a teacher! His other hobbies include building giant bionicle things-that-must-not-be-known and drawing pictures of houses with giant tenebrous spots floating ominously where the sun should be. He's so cute!

P.S. I want a sniper rifle too... and a Norwegian Elkhound, to bark a stuff before I shoot it.

My brother....uncle...well, 2 uncles.
Of one of the two uncles my dad had this to say about him: "I've only ever been afraid of 2 men in my life. One was a guy we pulled out of the Vietnam jungle with the tattoo '**** god' on his forehead, the other is your uncle."

Then there's my grandma...and my mom...but they're more psycho in a good way.

Why is everyone so suprised about a sniper rifle in the closet?

It's really just a high powered hunting rifle with a really nice scope. Not that hard to get, and I know quite a few who use "snipers" for hunting. they really just have a bolt action 30-06 with a 15-25 times scope (I think the scope size is right, the 30-06 my family owns has a old, off center 4x scope. I haven't really looked into resighting it yet, much less putting a better scope on).

Now, if he's got a M109 AMPR, that's a different story all together.

let's see...

-I like talking about unsettling things (like death, why is people so scared of it, damm this Modernism tendency...:smallannoyed: )
-I looove seeing people expressing confusion on any way.
-i'm pretty held back now; but when i was on elementary school, i punched the future prom king (who was also the grandson of an admiral, i pressume), almost hit a teacher with a desk, and ACTUALLY hit a classmate with a desk...mind you, they all had it coming..well, maybe not the teacher...but i was on hell mood that day...
-I usually talk alone, or with different aspects of myself, represented and characterized at a certain degree...

so yeah, i think i fit as "psycho" a little bit; though i would like a definite description of what "psycho" means to you, 'cause it doesn't necessarily has to mean the same to other people..

-takes sides on debates that no one else will take just to be weird
-has a sniper rifle in his closet and a handgun by the computer
-has dropped his pants in playground (it was at night, but still...there's wasn't even alcohol involved)
-dresses up in full goth regalia before friends come over
-has (accidentally) peed on a dog
-smokes while running track
-has the mark of slannesh (from warhammer 40k) as a tattoo
-has...scary adult things.....on his computer just so he can freak out his friends

*gasp* You and your brother read literature! How horrible. That's obviously the sign of psychopathy, right there. First Orwell, then who knows what will be next? Maybe Conrad, or Dostoyevsky! The horror! Once you start reading books, it's a slippery slope to...dare I say it...philosophy! Next thing, you're going to be reading The Catcher in the Rye and murdering rock stars, or even worse, learning and expanding your mind! /shudder

Speaking of Orwell, I read 1984 on Tuesday. And now I'm working on Brave New World by whatsisface, the guy with the Latin first name. Last week I read Schindler's List, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and Logan's Run...or maybe that was this week too, I think it was...well anyway, the point is, I like to read. A lot. At prodigious speeds. But I didn't think that was a sign of being psychotic, and that I'd read The Lord of the Rings trilogy seven times by the time I was twelve is a sign of awesome geekiness, not psychotic tendencies....I think.... <_<

Got me one of those. Is yours as evil-looking as mine? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Paraframe.jpg)
That's about the only weapon I have, though, unless you count small Swiss Army knives and a homemade garrote that's probably too fragile to kill a squirrel with. (I made it just to see what I could do with a multitool I got). I'm the family nutcase: I'm decidedly paranoid, and I tend to make up elaborate conspiracy theories for fun (a tendency I got from my dad, except he's more serious about his theories). Gnomes, the Illuminati, and terrorist squirrels generally figure prominently in my theories. I'm a bit of a survivalist (I've got quite a few survival books and army field manuals, a go bag, a light tent, and a small stock of beef jerky and multigrain bars), and read a lot of sci fi and post-apocalyptic books. I'm really not disturbed by death and violence - I actually used to make jokes about cancer, until I realized how evil I sounded. I blame video games for desensitizing me. No, really, that's the only reasonable explanation I have. I didn't listen to music at all until this spring, when I started. I listen mostly to metal (also some country and dance music), though I read the lyrics of all the songs I like to see if they contain any messages that go against my moral code; I don't listen to any songs that I think will make me internalize evil messages. Paranoid, like I said. My morality is of a decidedly Puritan bent, though I don't try to impose my beliefs on others, or even tell them what I think of them unless they specifically ask, at which point I kind of lay into people. I've never had a girlfriend - there's this girl who I've been obsessed with for about 3 years now, and who I'm pretty sure likes me as well, but I've never worked up the nerve to ask her - mostly because I think she's too perfect a person for me to deserve to be with her, and that I'm beneath her. Yep, I'm frequently depressed (though no longer suicidal or self-destructive, thank God) and I fit most of the criteria for schizophrenia.

Of course, my mom is even crazier than I am. She just has better excuses for it, such as having teenage twin children. :smallwink:

Plus, I've got friends who make me look completely peaceful and well-balanced. Like my friend who spends hours each day making insanely detailed origami sculptures, builds his own computers, and practices karate and kendo techniques on people in the halls. Or the guy I used to know who was in a Christian death metal band. Or the guy I used to know who memorized the names and functions of pretty much every single infantry weapon the Army uses. Or my friend with the enormous collection of swords, bows, spears, etc., most of which he actually practices with. Or the guy I met who intentionally infects his computer (and sometimes the computers of his friends) with viruses just to see if he can figure out how to fix them (he always managed to).

Pretty much everyone seems psychotic if you think about them enough, you know?

Oh yea, I almost forgot. I am psychic. Me and my dad can read each other's minds (especially while playing card games). Makes us pretty dangerous when we partner up for bridge or spades or any other paired card game. With one look at each other we know the general makeup of the other's hand with surprising accuracy. I know its probably just some imperceptible tells we have that we're both attuned to, but it really is fun to know half the deck when playing trick games.

Well, I read 4-5 hours a day, consider many philosophical questions (I mean, I worked out a way to figure out if cats have a language, come on, people), I constantly correct people's grammar and spelling, and have about 15 mini worlds in my head to visit when I'm bored.

I guess that probably makes me psycho.
Maybe not psychotic, though I did give my dad a blood nose once.:smalleek:

My favourite uncle (who I find myself resembling in certain behavioural ways) was actually institutionalised for a while some years ago. I think one of the last straws was when he walked from the middle of Sydney to some hours drive out into the country, for no apparent reason, and had to be fetched. There were also things like smashing doors and sitting in the middle of the room playing his guitar and singing when my parents (whom he was living with) had friends over because he thought he was the greatest musician in the world.

He's awesome :smallbiggrin:

I will say that I am indeed the black sheep in the family. Including the relitives on missions in... I think Madagascar.... Haven't heard from them in a year now.

But yes, I happen to have a preoccupation with sharp objects and own a various number of them. That with an obsession with the occult and arcane bits dealing with a facination about angels and a few other things that if I said would cause others unneeded concern for my mental well being...

I also know exactly what burning flesh smells like due to an experiment some time ago... Not that bad actualy but just rather more of an odd odor.

That and Terumitsu lives in my brain... I think.... If you know him, you will understand.... Or not. It's all up for grabs at the moment....



And I just had a sudden craving for Garlic Toast.... Anyone else have that happen?

so refreshing to know that many 'psychos' are really just people thinking they are because they happen to like sharp things etc.

please, if you're going to base your 'psycho' status on a fondness for tools of violence, you're a bit mistaken. having the tools means nothing. to be a psycho on the basis of violence, one must commit the violence.

i'm not a psycho, i'm a combat veteran.

but it's fun to throw people off with that fact.

You know you are Crazy when your Principle tells you so... My Principle thinks I'm Crazy, yet he still keeps me in Mainstream Learning...Maybe he feels threatened?

I laugh randomly, twitch for no reason and think up creative ways to commit Suicide or Homicide, I regularly ask people questions like "If you had an oppertunity to kill someone, who would it be?" or "How would you like to die?", If another country were going to Invade Australia like in the Tomorrow when the War Began series of books: I'd be prepared, I gave my old best friend 2 black eyes because he said "Your Mom" to much.
I like girls with Imperfections, like a Scar or something.
I'd willingly 'do' the Drama Teacher, If I had the oppertunity, shes the Hot.
My Idols include some of my Teachers.
I am Paranoid, I delete the History on my Computer and Phone daily.
I prefer the PS2 rather than the PS3.


I'm the Blacksheep of my family, nobody has acted as weird as I, ever, not in my bloodline.
I suggest the most random things ever, In Drama we were playing a Game called "What are you doing?" where you have to ask the previous performer what they were doing, they can answer whatever they want, so I said "IMMA CHARGIN MAH LAZAH!" just for laughs and to see the confusion on everyone's face.

A Psycho is defined, by every detective in those movies, as a person who lacks that good/bad barrier. Their head fails to light up on a moral level with the mention of rape, murder, and all that stuff.

That said, a mind that could manifest beings that are purely centered around rape and murder, like Rex and Regina are, can be considers somewhat psychotic, from enjoying what these beings do.

Course, in higher thought I might enjoy that stuff, maybe it's because it like pissing off my subconscious and it's conscience, I don't think I could bring myself to kill. Reason #238 of not joining the army, if they suppress the urge not to kill, I could not guarantee which side I'd use it on.

well, special operations anyways.

i have never based any measure of psycho on my owning things that are sharp. i personally like them from a craft standpoint(as i'm a knifemaker and bladesmith by hobby) and also for their elegance. especially european swords. every part of the sword was a weapon(unlike the katana, where only the blade is truly dangerous) and they were masterfully made to do what they did superbly.

and they're a joy to handle. there's something magical about the way an authentic middle ages sword comes alive in your hands.

yeah, somewhere in my mind that just falls under the same header, since I've never had anything to do with either :smallwink:

Gah, reading through this thread was like reading an encyclopaedia of 'internet badasses'. [scrubbed]

"omgz I beat up this d00d for no reason"

Assuming most of the past exploits about people here are true, and not lies fabricated to make themselves look tough on the internet, then you need to develop a little self control, because there is very rarely any time where assaulting someone will outweigh the consequences.

The language of animals, DNA splicing via saliva, what's outside the universe, why a series of electrical signals can be converted int to thoughts and how our brains process them, the origin of the word 'connected', that kind of stuff.
