    Hmmm.. good point, I am not sure how I would personally categorize that. I guess that further proves the point that it really comes down to subjective perceptions.

    Pretty much. Also in the "no thanks" category for me would be people who are clearly actively trying to be eccentric for attention.

    Eccentricity is tolerable until the point it becomes contrived. With that said, I think I'm more inclined to dislike eccentric people because I always assume they're seeking attention.

    I love when people truly do not give a fuck.

    There's no need to.
    Sometimes I think its sad because they usually appear to be care free for a while but one way or another they are exhausted, then some patterns or hard core conformity follow which is disappointing.

    I think that peoples insecurity or attachment needs find them out or catch up with them in the end.

    Or it's the brain mites that leech all the fun out of anything and everything.

    I never really want to conform. Some times life just deigns to suck all the happy out of me. Then it's like "You want serious? I can be that."

    It depends on how they are eccentric. If it's for attention then no I don't appreciate it. If they're doing it solely to not conform, then that isn't even being eccentric to me. It's just some kind of outlaw mentality. If a person in my intimidate sphere is eccentric, that is to say that they are impacting my environment, then I would likely resent it highly.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I like the ones who are crazy in a cool way like tesla or something, but not the ones like howard hughes
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    All I know is I need it for my lightbulbs.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
