On Big Bang Theory Sheldon says, "I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested"
But in another episode his mother said she should have taken him to another doctor for a follow up exam.

For Zen -- If all you could interpret out of my explanation of various things is that I am, in fact, "crazy" as you call it, then, for you, the answer is most definitely, "Yes" Hope that satisfies you enough to leave it be now. Okay?
Big Time Ideas -- yep, Bazinga! Your friend Zen scores another one! Yay for all of you!
So, no worries here Zen -- you win. I'm crazy and you're the authority here on it. No more interaction between us, okay? Okay. Done deal.

You know, I think we are all a little crazy - who wants to be normal anyway
Pat Parker10 December 2012 at 9:05pmPosts: 2683 (0 today)Status: offline
Ok, I'm asking this very seriously now -- to each of you -- let's just let it go, okay?? Seriously. Very seriously. No need for anyone of you to continue a conversation about whether or not I'm crazy -- that's who Zen asked, me.
So, carry on with the topic here in the thread, about a video that some think is funny while others think it's not -- it was all that simple in the start of the thread, but perhaps I'm wrong to assume that -- I didn't create the thread, I just added to it my own opinion.
As for the remainder of the interactions here -- it's not worth it to keep it up. I answered Zen's question, agreed that I'm crazy but I don't need anyone else to carry on the topic -- I am offended that someone (Zen) who does not know a single thing about me thinks it's okay to be rude towards me, just so she can have a laugh -- I don't need anyone else to add to the bandwagon here -- I'm a real person here, not just a computer screen and I'm not laughing about this at all. Just saying!
Kind regards to all.

i don't think this discussion is about whether or not you are "crazy",
I think Zen is just yanking your chain and seems to enjoy that it bothers you.
If I had a nickle for how many times someone here accused me of being "off my meds" I'd have a lot of nickles - best just to let it roll off your back and try not to let it get to you.
But at your request I won't comment on it any more
Howard (Big Bang Theory) I'm crazy!
Progressive jen10 December 2012 at 9:55pmPosts: 5472 (0 today)Status: offline
I'm only going to add one comment and I'll be done.
I know Par and she is most definitely NOT crazy.
If you felt that Pat took you the wrong way initially you could have just said so. Your remark was uncalled for in my opinion.
Getting back to the original topic I didn't find that video funny either. There are so many ways that things could have gone wrong. To each their own on that one.
Progressive jen10 December 2012 at 9:56pmPosts: 5472 (0 today)Status: offline
I actually know Pat not Par ***
Pat Parker10 December 2012 at 11:58pmPosts: 2683 (0 today)Status: offline
Page -- I disagree on your first comment and agree with you on the second:
1 - "i don't think this discussion is about whether or not you are "crazy"
Actually it's that part of the discussion that I''m asking folks to not comment on -- jokingly or otherwise, because, yes, Zen asked ME the question, not anyone else.
2. -- "I think Zen is just yanking your chain and seems to enjoy that it bothers you."
I agree with you that is what she's doing, and I admit it worked because I tend to actually try to figure out exactly why a complete and utter stranger would have a problem with me (or anyone for that matter). It's mind-boggling to me and I'm very curious about human behavior -- and this current cyber bullying takes all shapes and forms and it's a fact that the majority of people who say things on the internet would never/could never say them in person -- it's called passive-aggressive, for want of a better word. So, as much as I agree that is what Zen is doing, by anyone else cmomenting on it -- even with jokes and Bazingas only adds to her having a good laugh -- at the expense of someone else -- that being me -- and again, I have every single right to want the discussion to return to the original topic -- a video that made the news and you tube and has had much controversy over its humor. Again, to each his own.
So, thank you for acknowledging my request. I appreciate it.
Thanks, Jen -- I appreciate your words and know you mean well, even when you call me Par
Goodnight all and kind regards

Back to the deejays that pulled a prank that ended with the nurses death - I read that one of their pranks was phoning disadvantaged people promising them all kinds of prizes that would help them out.
The twist: anyone could phone in and takes those prizes away.
That's just cruel.

Actually, Pat, you've been baiting me for quite a while, I still don't know where this comes from, to quote you, "Once again, sorry I broke your rules and intruded in your comments, but get over it." You've used this over the years for some bizarre reason that perhaps you only know. Addressing it to me, even in threads where I may have been part of the conversation, but was not a conversation I started. Mostly, I have chosen to ignore this strange behavior and will again, as it makes no sense and comes from nowhere and really isn't worth me wasting time over or worrying about. Most of the time you've been civil and even nice, but then you come out with these strange comments directed at me. I've seen you do this to others as well. So, if there is anyone who gets some strange amusement out of baiting others, that would be you. From where this has gone, I have to say, as most would be bullies, you can dish it out, but you can't take it. So take it all for what it was, is and will be.
Which is the difference. If someone pulled the elevator prank on me, I'm not sure how I would have reacted during the prank, but I will guarantee I would have been one of the people laughing after the prank. The people were in an elevator, so they couldn't just run into the street or, well, anywhere for that matter. The little girl was in and out before the people really had time to think about what was going on. As for anyone who would think of attacking a small child under any circumstance, yes I would really have to ask why? A trip to Disney isn't complete until you have a screaming/crying child on one of the shuttles. I laugh and make silly faces at the kid and more often then not, they stop crying. Not that I don't sometimes get mad about something, for the most part I find laughter really is the better course.
As for the phone prank in Australia, the largest problem the radio station had was in not following their own procedures and getting permission from all parties before airing. In that, the radio personalities face some real jail time. So remember that, most if not all radio phone calls of this sort get permission from the people they phoned before airing. So apparently, lot's of people can handle a prank better then perhaps some here.
The thing about being pranked in some cases is hang on to it and pass the prank on. LOL I have a very realistic plastic cockroach sitting in my kitchen that someone got me with, in food no less, and someday it will find itself a new owner. No worries, Pat, it won't be you, as we understand your humor has too many rules.
BTW, you may be Peter's number one fan, but Yellow Deb is definitely his favorite.

Whoa, Pat, I didn't know that had anything to do with you. I haven't been on for awhile and I thought she was telling a joke. My son has a poster of Sheldon on the wall right next to me with that my mother had me tested quote, among others, and Bazinga in big letters.
I don't know what's going on, but Pat I definitely don't think your crazy.
Hey! Since some people seem to be really bored around here, why don't Y'all come over to my house and get my 20 yr. old daughter to quit smoking Oxycotin? And get my husband to 'fess up to the fact that he's not just drinking and he's still been doing Meth?
Legalize pot? Yea, these addicts think pot is nothin'. That"s cuz they started with that and it's boring now.
At least I've found proof and they can't lie anymore. You have no idea what crazy is. Come on over Zen, I'll serve ya up a big kettle of it!
Now shut up people and be grateful for your awsome lives.
Progressive jen11 December 2012 at 8:06pmPosts: 5472 (0 today)Status: offline
If you are serious about your daughter & husband then I am trult sorry you are going through that.
Maybe for some.
Still unemployed over 3 years, landlord wants us out but we cannot afford to move, because of this he won't fix the heater so we are going a second winter without heat and it's been cold. I've been wearing a turtleneck, a long sleeved shirt a sweater and a scarf to bed but it's still cold.
Pat bought me a kick ass seat to the PG show in Philly all I needed was a plane ticket and hotel rm but I couldn't get the money together so I had to miss that.
My mother has multiple health issues, I myself am having major problems with my teeth but no insurance.
This is the second Christmas in a row where there will be no Christmas for us, I don't care about getting gifts but it kills me that I cannot give, not even to charity.
Dec 16th will be the 1 year anniversary since my beloved dog was run over and killed right in front of me and I miss him terribly.
I'm having a hard time thinking of things to be grateful for other than I have some friends and we are all still alive.
Page11 December 2012 at 8:35pmPosts: 814 (0 today)Status: offline
Jen, is that legal for your landlord not to fix the heat? You should check into that, I know here in Canada landlords can't evict someone in winter - and they can turn off the heat in winter either.
Sorry you all are going through hard times - just came back from the doctor and he almost put me into the hospital cause my blood pressure is too high - I ran out of my blood pressure pills about four days ago, and I was taking Sudafed for my nasal congestion - Sudafed causes high blood pressure -so I'm going on prednizone to shrink the nasal polyps and ease the congestion - it's been a miserable time the last few months -
But my life's a breeze compared to you all and I'm grateful for small mercies.
It was last December 22 that we lost our 15 year old cat, but we still have Mulder, who is also aging.
Lots of good vibes to everyone - compare to some people in the world we have it made. Take care all

If My Heat Doesn't Work, What Are My Rights as a Tenant?
By Chris Hamilton, eHow Contributor
Landlords in the United States who refuse to fix damaged heating and cooling systems are in violation of the law and have the responsibility of fixing the system within a reasonable time frame. Tenants have the right to vacate the property within a certain amount of days after giving notice to their landlord of property damage if the landlord does not make repairs. The tenant will not pay a penalty for breaking his lease under these circumstances.
All 50 states and the District of Columbia require landlords to maintain a habitable living environment for tenants, which complies with all health safety codes, including the maintenance and repair of structural components and heating, electrical and plumbing systems. In most states, renters can report their landlord to their local department of building inspections if the landlord refuses to fix a damaged heating and air system.
Before complaining to a local or state agency, tenants must give the landlord notice of the damaged system so that the landlord has the opportunity to make repairs.
Tenants should send written notice to their landlord by certified mail so that they have proof of notice given, because some disreputable landlords may deny receiving verbal notice, making it difficult for a tenant to prove her case in court. Tenants should receive a response back from their landlord that outlines when repairs will occur within a reasonable amount of days after sending notice.
For example, the state of California allows the tenant to send his landlord a written notice that requires a response within a reasonable time period (five to 10 days) that the tenant determines.

Here's the deal
We need more time to get the money together and find a place. My mother's ex- douchebag of a hubby stopped paying his cout ordered alimony about 2 years ago. We've filed papers with the court twice and they have done nothing
With me being out of work money is tight.
So the landlord sends us a leter in October stating that he wants us out by end of November. I looked it up online and found out that he cannot do that, it's only legal if he takes us to court. In Colorado you can evict tennants for any reason (unless government paid housing, not us) but if the reason is not for unpaid rent and they have lived in the property for over a year you have to give them 3 months to move. ( 3 months from the court date)
Once Dec 1st came and went the landlord cashed our rent check and sent a letter giving us until Jan 16th to move out, I guess the idiot hasn't checked the law yet.
Our plan is to make him take us to court, get the 3 months to keep saving and hopefully the fact that he has not fixed the heat will work in our favor with the judge. I'm hoping that the judge will order that we do not have to pay any further rent until he fixes the heat.
You do not have many rights with housing in Colorado unless you are subsidised by the government.
So right now we are just waiting, he

Sorry Jen Bebe. You've prayed for me, and helped alot. Huge prayers coming your way.
Sorry about the breakdown.
My daughter finally came and talked to me. Evidently you can make hash (pot ashes) into little hard rock things and smoke them off of tin foil the same way they smoke Oxycotin. It is more potent that way. She swears she has not been doing it for awhile. The emotional rollercoaster she has been on lately is instead because- wait for it- she's pregnant.
Not what I had in mind, but much prefered to Oxycotin addiction. Her friend had told me she had used it before, which she admitted to, several months ago, but hasn't since. Acctually feeling relieved in comparison to what I was feeling.
However, my husband is an idiot, but what's new.

Biggie -- I'm sorry to read about how bad things are going for you (and I know about jens circumstances and feel just as badly); I do hope that things get better for everyone. Just as Jen said, no one can assume that all others are having a wonderful time of it either, so I suppose we all need to take a step back don't we and take a look at how we're behaving. And that would be all of us, not just one or two, don't you agree? Anyway, I hope things get better for you soon.
As for the remark, I'm quite familiar with the show and know the statement. I like the show a lot and he's my favorite character. I saw how you made the connection, but since you only just appeared, along with a few others, it was oddly coincidental that you'd post the remark here on this thread without reading just a comment or two before it, but it's all cool.
Zen, thanks for taking the time to write your comments to me. I now know why you are such an authority on here. After all you have shown here how much you know about me, because we've met and spoken and because I have used mean, harsh, rude words to you personally as well as to your "others". Why would I ever question such an opinionated, biased, judgmental, better than thou person such as yourself. I promise never to do it again. I don't know what came over me.
I would like to invite you to find where I criticized your personal sense of humor regarding the video. I was not the only person to nit find it funny and I do not judge you on whether you think it's funny. To each his own is what that means. For you to determine my own sense of humor ... Well, I shouldn't comment should I? After all you know me so well and you've been able to get to know me on ??? Occasions.
Zen, as far as baiting you, you yourself say that we've had civil and nice conversations and with that I agree. That's why I wondered why I seemed to have offended you somewhere awhile ago and I couldn't figure that out. But now that you've given exact details about I have personally mistreated you, was mean and rude to you here and to the infamous "others" I should have known better. Again, my bad. I actually have always lived my life treating people as individuals and not judging anyone by what I think of them, but hey that's just me.
Baiting? Are you baiting me with your comment about pg? You silly little teenage girl! We've already discussed this and I've already agreed with you. Deb is most definitely pg's favorite fan and I have never said I'm his number one fan. I don't know who is, but it's not me. It's not important, never was, and was always a joke that the older lunies knew as funny. For some reason you and a few other newbies get really irritated by it and I'm not sure why?
Kind regards to all. And zen, you really can give it up on me. I sincerely have never done anything to you, did not bait you as you're doing here and you, and only you, have brought this on for yourself. I don't blame ya really. You were all so used to fighting with one person or another and I guess since they're not participating any longer you'd try your hand at me. Just leave me alone, will you. Because just as biggie said, we all have things happening in our lives and I'm embarrassed to be arguing with the likes if you when I have people in my life who mean the world to me.

I should also explain-
The reason I was (and am) sure that my daughter was using substances is that I found pieces of tin foil with black lines down the middle of them in a notebook in her purse. That is how some of these drugs are smoked. I also tested her- it was positive for pot, but the other stuff can go out of their system in 2 to 3 days.
As for my husband, he did Meth before and his actions seem stranger sometimes than just alchohol. I've caught him in some other lies lately, so I really don't trust him.
