People you know who you'd deem as 'crazy' - Out there people - I'm sure you've all met someone like this - maybe you are that person - regardless - do we gain anything from these people? On a personal level?

I guess it depends on many things. the situation, the circumstances, the consequences.

the situation the crazy person created
the circumstances in which paved the way for the situation
and lastly the consequences in the end the crazy person was faced with.

crazy people by definition do not create it - craziness in it's most clinical sense is a condition in which the person has no control over the fundamental inception of their craziness, or the behaviour that it manifests.

I'm on DS, hence why I use the term crazy when actually, I'm educated enough to know it's not a clinical term. lmao.

That you should never sit next to one on the bus, but if you have to, make sure you get the aisle seat.

There are many on DS, one has been telling of the fun he has had torturing cats. There are some nut bars on here.

Mostly stuff about religion, when they knock on your door or try to shove a leaflet in your hand in town centres.

If one is crazy, does one know?
So if you think you're crazy you probably aren't?

There was a well known crazy local in my area who until he recently passed away was always known to say, "the whole world's mad except me."

He was fairly harmless though, unlike another local man who is "crazy" and pretty threatening.

I have learned to feel compassion, for the people that have untreated and unrecognised mental illness, who are living lives of confusion and emotional pain.

I do feel we should not try to force people born with a condition into normal way of life, in many cases it only makes things worse.

i thought this was about "eccentrics" rather than nutters.

Please do not use this word nutters. These people suffer in torment without words like that being uttered.

Crazy people are the best ones to know in my experience.

I wish I could. I've always wondered if sensitive people are more prone to emotional problems.

I will post that to start another discussion. it will be interesting to see other views.

Do they mean people who are actually tame but think they're 'whacky' like the Fast Show's Colin Hunt?

Or does the OP mean diagnosed mad people?
