Anyone know what Indigo Children are? Because I'm here to tell you that we appear to have a lot of them on Elfwood these days.
Don't mind me, I'm just going to go assume a fetal position in the corner over there.
Current Mood: frustrated
I read the article and it seems like if the Indigos have some special (magic??) powers or what? Quite scary really...
Thankgod that they won't be able to do anything to change the ticketqueue-system..

Traits of Indigo Children
The relevant traits are listed below:
* They come into the world with a feeling of royalty.
* They have a feeling of "deserving to be here," and are surprised when others don't share that.
* They have difficulty with absolute authority.
* They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.
* They often see "better" ways of doing things, which makes them seem like "system busters" (nonconforming to any system).
If you're joking, then LOL.
If you're not joking, then thank you for proving my point, and... LOL.
Wait, does this mean we don't have to deal with your constant griping anymore??? sweet!

Sorry, I was too busy looking at porn and wanking to mod.
...uh-huh. I read the article Shinaraz posted, and it seems like the kid may have been gifted in that he was unusually intelligent, but all of this other 'Indigo Child' stuff Im reading around here is bull. Who comes up with this stuff?
Come to think of it, I know someone kind of like that. Gads, I hate her.
And you're right, there do seem to be a lot of self-appointed princes/princesses in the 'Woods. I'd bet you anything most of them are thirteen and their excuse for posting their art and expecting something to come of it is "my mommy says I'm the best artist in the world, so it must be true; now worship me". XP
Mind if I join you in the corner? *assumes fetal position*
By the way, awesome avatar.
Unusually intelligent child, I definately agree with that statement.
I read the full article...when she is talking about her study on "indigo children" almost everything she described is what normal kids do anyway.
And, yeah, a lot of the people in the 'Woods are the type that their mommy told them they were great. In fact, I run into "Indigo Child" syndrome with a lot of drama queens/kings in music too.

What IS this precious, child-worshipping bullshit? Way to utterly destroy the little darlings before they have a chance to grow up and neglect us in our old age the way the American tradition says they should. This is a lot like how all the kids nowadays are suddenly on the Autistic spectrum because Mommy and Daddy think discipline is how serial killers get started.
NEWS FLASH PEOPLE. Your children are in no way comparable to beautiful colors of any fashion--indigo, scarlet or royal blue. Screw that middle-class honky nonsense. Fucking vile little monsters is what they are, uncivilized and pants-pissing and BORING. Special? Hardly. Junior eats his own belly button lint. He will die a janitor on his 39th birthday, bald and mumbling in a drug-haze JUST LIKE DADDY. Indigo THAT, why don't ya?
And while we're on the topic of harsh realities, you need to spank the little demons at least once a day if you want them to ever be worth jack in the real world. Trust me, I was a kid and I did at least five spank-worthy stupid things every day, four of which were likely to get me killed.
I know kids, and I know punishment. Therefore, kids should be punished. Quid Pro Kids Suck.
A tip though: don't use the claw end of the hammer unless the little bastard wrecks your manuscript. It's excessive. Instead, fill a sock with pennies and just whop him around the head. It's GOOD FOR HIM.
Indigo children, my ASS. I'm holding out for black and blue and hopefully spay/neutered in the bargain. Well-beaten brats are usually quieter (except the occasional sniffling and choked-back sobs), perform better on tests (try leaving the desk when you're shackled to it!) and they can bloody well STAND IN LINES ...if you provide crutches.
MODERN CHILD MAGAZINE
Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, many years ago.
My question is... How can an Indigo Child be aware of your hidden agenda if you aren't aware you had one??!!
That one puzzled me... Oo
They're mind readers! *gasp* I think I'll join Visionari in the corner...curled up in the fetal position.
Right so...at best we're looking at a Gifted child, the basis of which has already been defined, but taking away any of the negative qualities (and any parent of a Gifted child had better be darn sure they're not looking at the kid with rose-coloured glasses. Little tyke may be clever, but they're also lazy, manipulative, elitist...).
At worst...it's some parent who thinks their child is brilliant and needs a serious Roald Dhal-ing. I couldn't read the whole artical...it gave me nausia. But I managed to make it through the bit about the Millenium Falcon, and all I can say is...0.o?!?!? What was so horrible about that the uncle was doing? Why is seeing if the kid can put something back together a hidden agenda? Toys get broken, it'll happen anyway. Why was the kid's way of dealing with it amazing? Short of his sentence structure, which I'm sure was exaggerated anyway.
Sheesh...some days you just wanna go out and kill younglings...
CHILDREN DON'T HAVE THOUGHTS
But i like how almost everybody took this all as serious discussion matter rather than realizing you were making commentary on other people on effw0d...
Children should be seen not heard, right? Let's dump out everybody who is under the age of 21 from Elfwood! Yeah! That'll get rid of the immaturity!
I LIKE HOW KHARMII DELETED ALL HER STUPID POSTS IN THIS THREAD.
THAT WAS NEAT.
IT WAS KHARMII, WASN't IT GUYS? D:
IT'S ALREADY FADING FROM MEMORY...
LOL... You make me laugh...
I AM AN INDIGO CHILD
I do not appreciate all of you being so misunderstanding. We have feelings too, more than you have even. There is no reason to hate on us for being better than you. Just try and understand that you are not always going to be the smartest, and that the rules in your world do not apply to people with the kind of potential we have. Sure there are people who claim to be indigo children who are not actually indigo children, but my doctor signed a certificate telling my parents I was an indigo child for real, and I have proved it by my behaviors. Most of the people in this thread have missed the point of the original post, and instead used it to pick on indigo children and denounce us as fakes. The only person here I see who noticed is allcuishpa
, who is probably an indigo child like me since he actually understood the post instead of leaping to conclusions like laypeople usually do.

I am an Indiglo Child.
I motherfucking glow in the dark.
This is the best thread ever to happen on this community.
I hope nothing in here is considered "asshatery" by the admins, because this thread is certified A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ would participate again!
Seriously, if this community had more fun discussions like this, maybe some of you guys would spontaneously sprout a sense of humor and help make Elfwood a better place.
