I'm pretty sure that anyone will go out of their way to ignore things that they don't want to have to deal with. I've done a few tests. One of which being i sat in the passenger seat of my friends car with a ninja mask and tinted goggles on. We drove on a multi-lane road where we could drive next to people for extended periods of time. We only got a reaction from one person out of nearly 50. Granted some people truly didn't see us. The one reaction we got was hilarious when the guy saw me he dropped his bagel while it was on the way to his mouth. but the other people stared straight ahead purposely not looking at me while i stared at them. Some people would get a first glance and then start staring straight and we would drive along side them for as long as we could to see if they'd react. WE did this same thing sitting on a bench in a shopping center. No one commented or reacted in any way. Another one we tried was peeing in a public bathroom with our pants around our ankles and our asses bared. no one ever said anything. most people would just try to get as far a urinal away as they could but thats all they did. Any comments or similar experiences?

It's because what you're doing is out of the norm. these are people who have lived their lives conforming to society's "acceptable mindset". I would bet money on it that they never think outside the box, do anything crazy, or do anything creative. They simply do not want to be seen associated with anything out of that normality they've set up, and looking at "abnormality" is to them association

One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

Shoopin' that whoop since before you were born, son.

That's plain stupidity my friend...


How is it stupid it makes perfect sense. If you walked into a bathroom and some guy had his pants around his ankles would you not be surprised at all. Or if you walked past someone in a public place with ninja mask you would show no emotion. People just completely ignore it as though they never saw it even though it is in plain site and is clearly strange to them. And as for the second poster you just repeated what i am trying to say. Because it is odd for them they ignore it cuz they dont want to deal with it.

One time two of my friends and I wore ski masks while driving around, and we'd stare at people when sitting next to them at red lights and stuff too.. and apparently some guy called the cops on us. We were pulled over, searched and the vehicle was searched, haha. It was pretty funny.

I mean the fact you were doing those things and then asking if anyones done it ...it's immature.

yes i live in the US, and where do you live cuz i find that very amusing cuz its not really like that. Most people don't own guns in the US. and most people wouldn't think twice of most of the things i think you are thinking of. My friend yells at hot girls to call him out of car windows and either gets ignored (supports my original point) or laughed at cuz we find it amusing.

I'm talking about how you said you went around to bathroom's and showed your butts to people...(in a way)
#18
Well, if I knew you wre joking, i would do something funny to like be like "OMG They're coming to attack me" and run away. but if its a stragner, i would just mind my own business cuz in my head i have no idea whether ur trying to see my reaction, or yo'ure just actually mental. if u were, then if i said something you might get pissed or attack me. LIke in school, thers this kid that wears a trench coat and has a metal suitcase. one tmie i saw he had an eye patch. i could say something, but im just afraid that one day he might shoot up the school and recognize me. that's rlly my only fear nowadays, it's crazy ppl. I learned that if you don't want any trouble, just mind your own business. that's my excuse.
#19
If i saw someone doing these things, i wouldn't react because frankly i dont give a rats ass. Neither did most of those people. Why would i concern myself with some kid wearing a ninja mask? Doesn't affect my life at all, so im not going to bother with it.

well people dont like the burden. They don't want to trouble themselves so they simply just ignore the issue.

1. How do people "go out of their way to ignore things that they don't want to deal with?" Wouldn't it be more out of the way to acknowledge you than to go about their business?

2. No one cares. As long as you aren't hurting anybody, most people aren't going to take the effort of dealing with something that insignificant in their daily routines. As I said before, its just easier not to acknowledge it.

In respone to #1 I see it as them doing the unnatural thing by holding back their initial reaction, whether that be surprise or whatever, you are saying that their natural reaction is to acknowledge the person.
#2 don't say no one cares because a lot of people would care, perhaps not you maybe if you saw someone wearing a ninja mask you would mark it as ordinary and continue on with your life, but chances are that people will see it as strange and like i said in #1 want to have some sort or shocked reaction but will go out of their way not to.

You raise a good point why don't we all do things like this and argue or support the topic instead of just calling me immature and then agreeing with someone else. Yes, that is directed towards you guitartaber93

He just looked at me said nothing pulled up his pants and walked out of the bathroom.

My point was that you're expecting some type of huge reaction, when people just don't care enough to give one. (and unless I'm mistaken I think you're missing a negative in that first sentence.)

But like you said, If I saw something out of the ordinary I'd just think to myself "ok, that's odd." and then continue on with my life because it most likely doesn't affect me in any way. But in the above post it seems like you care a lot about seeing something out of the ordinary, we're just two different people I guess. I don't see the point in making a big fuss about slightly odd things, and I think a lot of people would agree with me.
#28
It's not cause I don't wanna deal with it, it's cause I know these annoying teenagers (no offense) are doing it so someone will go "Oh my god! I've never seen anything like it before!"

Personally I hate when people do things purely seeking a reaction, and I really don't care enough to say anything to them. So what? I just move on and do something worthwhile.

1 - I always ignore the little wankers when they're trying to goof on people. It seems to bother them when they don't get the attention they're seeking. I like that.

2 - Selecting a urinal far away from someone who is already using one is ALWAYS proper etiquette, regardless of whether or not their pants are down around their ankles. Stay the hell away from me when I'm pissing, you pervert! Sneak a peek at someone else's cock.
