What's wrong with being strange? Actually, I kinda like it. Being strange sets me apart from the rest of the so-called "normal world." Who set the normalcy and strangeness guidelines anyway? Probably a friendless recluse who lives among the sewer rats. When you really think about it, there is nothing wrong with uncontrollable laughter at something that happened two years ago, or talking to an object that doesn't talk back.
Let's hope we can try to learn from other people's differences. But most important we should not to label someone strange and ridicule them because of their difference.
