Have you embraced being weird af?

I've been travelling and working abroad non-stop for 22 years. Sitting in a bar in Sulawesi right now after 7 months working in Bangkok. Even working in Bangkok is too normal. About to start a 4000 mile motorbike trip around Sulawesi but thinking of my next trip in Afghanistan.
I've finally accepted I'm weird, unusual, strange and eccentric and I want to lean in and embrace it.
Anyone else here odd beyond those they typically meet? How did you accept it?

    Besides being an extreme nomad. What makes you so weird?
    A lot of people call me weird and i am forsure different than most people... but i think its them thats weird...
    They think its weird i dont use soap, drink raw milk, dont drink water with meals, dont wash my long hair often, talk deeply in subjects, refute feminism and globalism,

    I am still learning to fully embrace my weirdness but its very difficult to find people to interact with that that accept it. A lot of people are so conditioned to be so robotic and gay

        Hell yeah brother
        Its still amazing how many people are too pussy to try no soap

        The body and hair feels way less disgustimg when you do sweat etc

        The soap stripps the biome and then causes the body to feel extra gross when it does sweat
        Same with deoodrant
        And yeah frick that chemical stew water.

        Got called weird by an "artist " painting a gay mural in poland for drinking raw milk
        Some "rebellius " backpackers also called me weird for sippin that raw in Germany
        Triggered a tinder date when i told her feminism sucks!

          when i became a israelite temporarily soap fricked my skin up giving me chicken skin. it's not good for you at all, ironically body washes are not as harsh on skin.

          the only thing I cannot manage is the armpits. my armpits totally need some sort of soap or body wash

          the rest of the skin I feel I get by fine without washing often

            Hmm maybe its because you use deodorant?
            The armpits took me like 2 months of no soap or deodorant to adjust . Now even when I sweat balls they feel fine

            Was really hoping to hear some stories from OP or others about how weird they are and in what ways their peers get weirded out

            Its also crazy how weird and scared people get to explain or talk about things beyond the surface level
            Maybe traveling more off the beaten path will be a good place to meet fellow weirdos

                What does the soap do that washing with just water doesn't do?

                And like I said, life is a lot more comfortable
                Sweating with no soap life is a lot more tollerable then life when you do use soap

        I have no intention of trying to replicate the process, I just want to know what your routine is. Like, show up in new place, realize you are about to be out of cash, and then just go around asking for work?

        yeah theres two as far as i can tell. the people that want to be seen as weird: they get weird haircuts, strange piercings, state theyre into all kinds of surface level 'safe' eccentricities. usually an artist type. but then when you actually sit down and talk with them theyre the most banal normal person on the planet. you could be talking to a 40 year old midwestern accountant and youd hardly notice a difference. and then theres the people that 'are weird' by label of others. they look normal but maybe dont follow certain hygiene conventions. they have interesting ideas and thought about some things but or more or less pretty normal. they might get 'overly' passionate about topics that normal people dont care about but they tend to be more or less decent. idk i just dont get the distinction. never have, probably never will. i dont understand people. theyre tedious and exhausting.

          so you agree with me

          Thanks for the info. Really though its been years and i might smell a little
          When i sweat because i dont wear deodorant.... some people say I smell (mostly children and women) when sweating... . I work construction and the guys never say shit.
          But if im with a full group going out to dinner, and most people and myself shower before going out. But i dont use soap. No one out there smells at all. Besides the soapers reeling like chemical fragance.
          So if anything smelling bad is more based on sweating and not wearing a deodorant to mask it or stop the sweat
          Plenty of girls tell me they like my mild bo smell
          Im only kind of moronic. If soap was better I would be using it, but i tried no soap and its better. Try it out and then come talk to me kid
          And virus and bacteria are good, but thats a totally nother story thats too hard for a big pharma and medical supporter like you to ever be open to hearing

        its not magic, its basic chemistry. although im on the fence on whether its really necessary unless you are in a sterile profreshional environment where people arent used to smelling human smells.

        Not all compounds can be dissolved in water. Hydrophilic compounds, for example salt, readily mix with water. Hydrophobic compounds, for example oils, do not readily mix with water.

        Soap is a surfactant. It breaks the surface tension of water, allowing water and oil to mix. It can do this because it is amphipathic, that is, it has a hydrophilic size and a hydrophobic side. The hydrophobic side of the soap is repulsed the water and attracted to the oil, while the hydrophilic side is attracted to the water and repulsed by the oil. This causes the soap to form tiny little bubbles containing pockets of oil. These are called micelles, and they also help to destroy/carry away dirt, bacteria, and viruses.

        When you wash with only water, not only are you leaving behind all the oils, you are also leaving behind bacteria, viruses, and plain old dirt/grime. This is why (you) still smell after washing with water, because the bacteria that cause you to smell bad are still there.

        cover your hands with fat (butter, oil etc) and wash them with just water. once you've gotten them completely clean, repeat but wash with soap and water this time. which one was more effective?

        • 9 months ago
          Anonymous

          Yeah the soap of course. Common i know that. My point is still that soap is not neccesary to get clean and feel comfortable and not smell
          And once the body stops having to over produce oils because the soap strips them from the body... its actually a lot less gross feeling when you do sweat

          I guess next time I will just have to insist that is my preference and not everyone has the same preference

    Man, this thread was disappointing, when I saw the subject I thought I was going to find more people like me.

    I practice method acting. I decide which character I'll play before I set off, then I stay in character for the whole trip (other than at the passport desk where I use my real name). Sometimes that can be many months. I have numerous social media accounts now for various characters... sometimes I kill them off, other times I have fun with it and bring back the character for a sequel. I've even posted on here in character previously.

    Gold hunter, property developer, private investigator, recent widower, talent agent... I've been them all. One of my favourites was a researcher for Wongnai... that one opens up a lot of doors.

    I think that classifies as weird af.

      Yes bro finally a real mofo joins the thread!
      Can you elaborate on how some of the inteactions go for you?
      And does it actually determine what you do day to day? Or just the types of things you say to people

      Ive had thoughts of trying this but havnt thought of any characters I would like to pull off.
      I do however enjoy trolling people or enhancing their reactions, like when someone is venting about disliking someone I pretend to get all livid with disgust towards the person they dislike and insist we burn their house down etc
      Or to troll girls and tell them I feel sorry they have been oppressed for so long etc

      But the weirdness can be hard to pull off without normies feeling uncomfortable... not many people can clown back
      Like dancing at the club and asking "does this music make you horny too"?
