For better or worse, that means any chosen eccentricity needs to be cultivated, practiced, and developed over a long period of time. You have to admit, walking a lobster is pretty funny. THE INEVITABLE FOOTNOTE More than a few professions and workplaces demand eccentric impulses be kept to a minimum.Hospitals fall into this category: patients tend to become nervous if their neurosurgeon, the same one slated to delicately pick through their parietal lobe, starts walking around with a parrot on her shoulder.(updated: July 2011) Ideas I've publicly posted here I'd love to implement myself, but I know I (realistically) don't have enough time and/or resources.While most people keep their ideas secret, I'd prefer someone else implement and benefit from this idea rather than it fade in my head and never happen!For every genius mistakenly shipped off to a padded cell, another hundred are dismissed as mere eccentrics, with tics that distinguish them as fish-out-of-water types.Mildly intriguing and definitely harmless, eccentrics include many of history’s most famous poets, novelists, mathematicians, theoretical physicists, actors, titans of industry, and half the faculty of the world’s universities.The idea is for a free networking and dating site specifically for people with intellectual disability/learning difficulties AND their carers.
Sounds like the price you pay for dating a great conversationalist is pretty steep, huh?
A very thin line exists between insanity and genius.
So thin, in fact, that it sometimes disappears completely, and madmen are misidentified as brilliant thinkers, while geniuses are dismissed as lunatics stuffed with an extra helping of crazy.
This has prompted me to create a facebook group which I hope you will join...
or contact me directly if you support the idea and have suggestions!
