My Normal is too Weird for You

What exactly is 'normal'? How does 'normal' exist?...I mean, if you take the infinite number of possibilities of situations, thoughts, objects, etc. that someone encounters in a lifetime and ask every human being on earth what they would consider 'normal' in each and every one of those situations, not one person's entire cumulative thought stream of 'normal' would be the same as another. So what fully encompassing definition of 'normal', what scientific measure, what mathematical standard, to what degree can we be justified in labeling something as 'normal?' It seems as if that question just happened to clearly answer itself.

(And for those of you going above and beyond the call of duty to make a calculated effort to be weird, unique, stand out as much as humanly possible for fear of blending in with 'normalcy'. You're far from abnormal...)
