You often hear people saying 'he isn't normal' or 'I'm glad I'm normal' or whatever. But what, precisely, constitutes normality? I'm very glad I don't fit into its definition, whatever that might be.

whatever you want it to be, who knows? who cares? be comfortable within your own skin, that's normal for me.

Normal is a unit vector exactly perpendicular to a surface. Who wants to be normal?

Whatever 'normal' is, rest assured you won't find it in this website.  Silly

Because it's a clear day. If it were raining, it would be grey.

Most people I talk to tend to think "normal = majority". In the recent campaign for (against) same-sex partnerships in Switzerland, normal was whatever the bible said (even for people who never read it nor believe in any religion).

And for myself? I don't know (at least, excluding the mathematical/geometrical meaning). I can't come up with a list of what I consider normal or not...

From Merriam-Webster:

Quote:
2 a : according with, constituting, or not deviating from a norm, rule, or principle b : conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern

Hot Topic has a t-shirt that I like- it says "You laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same." There is no such thing as normal.
