Do you ever think that the other users on fluther are just the other people in the mental institution?

Asked by bodyhead (5520points) October 30th, 2008

I do. Sometimes I imagine that the other flutherites are really people I know who have made up these online personas.

When they go out of eyeshot, they jump on a computer and respond to me all crazy.

I could be in a mental institution, but drugs do marvelous things these days. I can pass for normal enough to be on the street!

See daloon, I imagine I know you as a different person and you just have this wacky online persona.

Sometimes I think they’re the other people who ESCAPED from the mental institution. :)

I wouldn’t be surprised. you can be whatever you want to be online. I’m sure some ppl get their ya-ya’s out of being idiots on sites like this. In reality, they’re probably afraid of their own shadows…

@bodyhead, well, to some extent I tone myself down in public, but when I’m with my support group (we all share the same mental illness), I’m pretty much like this.

Sometimes I entertain with tails of online highjinks.

But I think I am more who I really am here, and I severely edit my self for public consumption.

I thought you knew that you are the only real person here and everyone else is the fluther staff messing with your head.

If that’s the case, I’m not clicking the ads enough.
