Delusional Idols


So, I've been watching the American Idol auditions. And I was ok when I thought that there were just a few crazy people running around out there. But, now, there are getting to be too many.

Too many people come on that show, confident of an incredible gift invisible to everyone else but them, and horribly dissapointed when the judges don't see it. You can see their mind just freeze when they learn that their talents aren't universally admired. And they leave thinking they must just have picked the wrong song or that the judges are idiots.

And I am finding that there are too many of these people suffering from delusion to make me believe it's limited to a few random "psychos".

So, what are each of us delusional about? What are you convinced of about yourself that if the whole world told you no, you'd be convinced that, against all statistical odds, everyone else was simply crazy?

I'm convinced that I have the ability to command the loyalty of sea creatures.

are you considering hippopotamuses as sea or land creatures?

Marc said...

I believe that hippopotami evolved from flighted creatures, and still claim that classification.

Sabai said...

why on earth would a creature that could fly evolve into a creature that could not?

that would be the worst choice of all time. like man going back to flippers.

you're obviously delusional.

You're right. My assertion about the evolutionary path of hippopotami was grossly incorrect. My apologies to the intellectual sensibilities of everyone on this blog.



They were obviously a space-faring species.
