Authuran;5398942 Who is this hero? Daniel Smith, or more commonly known as the Tourette's Guy. Oh, that sounds so stupid right? I mean he just swears! Wrong. We live in a world censored and filtered by people who want to oppress language and free thought, and very few people dare to defy all "decency" that has been forced upon us. And that, my friends, is something to be admired.
Daniel Smith for me too. I needn't explain myself, as the quote contains the explanation.
Who is my hero? Nobody. I have no hero, nobody to look up to, and few (if any) to trust with anything of mine, whether it be a possession, thought, or otherwise. Even my own family feels hard to live with. I don't think I fully trust any human being, now that I think about it.

You'd be a fool to trust anyone with everything, but I don't know how practical it is to trust no-one with anything. Even every day activities like driving require a massive degree of trust.
You'd be a fool to become paranoid of everyone and think they're all out to get you.

That or live a life where that's the norm. A life where there is no basis for comparison and suspiciousness is an unwavering perception regardless of relationship. Whether its your mother, your father, your sibling, your best friend, (if you somehow develop one) your mate, or a random joe blow walking down the street. All are suspect.
Imagine, retreating from say, a diner - not because it was poorly conceived or served, but because of the potential for being poisoned. Mom made it? Well, that's of little consequence.
Imagine this, and you'll have a tiny minuscule idea, of what it's like to live with P.P.D.
Gandhi for sure...he managed to get his revolution accomplished with plan B, but I would have liked to see how it would have unfolded if Plan A worked...Gandhi wanted a violent Revolution but couldn't get access to the guns - valiant determination toward making those with the power relinquish control is admirable.
I also favor George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan, Carl Sagan, Leonard Nimoy, Malcolm X, Brian (from Family Guy), Batman and Whitey McCrackerhonkey next door for being a constant reminder to my kids that being a 23-year-old dropout douche living in your parents basement surfing animal porn is nothing to aspire to.:beer:

I think everyone knows what PPD is, most people know something with it. I was extremely paranoid in grade 8 cuz of my math teachers constant psychological torture on me. I got past it, it wasn't as serious as some cases though.
Anyone who's a general nuisance towards government and authority (aka "The Man") is my role model. Especially people clever enough to find loopholes in the system to harass without punishment.
PPD aka meth users...just say'n.

Nah the PPD I've encountered and studied is traceable to elementary school. Legal or illegal drugs have nothing to do with it. I'm sure drugs exacerbate schizophrenia and other mental illnesses, but increasing the occurrence rate of PPD, no. Also contrary to what someone else said, it's not a phase either. You don't just grow out of it, or have a mood swing in your adolescence and all of sudden get better, If you have PPD, you have it for good. It won't just go away, or become better. In fact it almost invariable worsens, due to the very nature of it.
It's not really shocking how naive people are about mental illnesses, considering the state of mental health education. An elective.
