No, you are not weird.
Here are two facts that confirm the above comment:
#1) You are here, on ATS .
#2) You created and posted this thread.
Please don't misunderstand me. It is not my intent to ridicule you.
Currently, and there has for some time, been an epidemic sweeping the globe. This epidemic originated in Great Britain, and has perpetuated itself
exponentially in the United States of America.
This epidemic is called "Warholism".
"Warholism" is of course, derived from the name of Andy Warhol. An artist who is remembered, among other things, for the famous qoute "everyone
will have thier fifteen minutes of fame".
The advent of "reality TV" has brought, for lack of a better term, "reality" to Mr. Warhols' bold statement. This, combined with the anonymous
freedom of the "information age" has given "carte blanche" to anyone with two fingers and an internet connection.
Again, please do not misunderstand me. I, like you, am here. On ATS, and typing. Believing that my thoughts and opinion matter.
What you, like me, and so many others are searching for, and asking for, is called "Validation".
Spend a few minutes on YouTube, or MySpace, or FaceBook. Just look around. Why is ATS any different?
Content? I think not. We are only just sheep of a different color my friend.
Tell me I'm wrong.
