I would like to talk today about something I like to call the law of diminishing weirdness.
It works something like this. If, as we may assume, weirdness is absolute (ie. Some things are just weirder than others) then we are faced with a problem. Why do some things seem less weird to some people and not to others. The only possible answer is that people get used to things. The more you are exposed to the weirdness the less weird it seems. Hence the law of diminishing weirdness.
In fact a really weird thing can happen when things go too far with this law. Weird thing, after a while seem really normal and people who don’t do them end up seeming, to the naturalised weirdo, well frankly a bit odd.
