#Charles Lindbergh

Famous Graphology (Most Random Edition Yet)
Tumblr media
Due to his own actions and the events of his life, few people have evoked such a peculiar mix of admiration, hatred and pity as Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974).
What is helpful about this signature is that it was written before the tragedy that likely defined his later life (and embittered him), so we can figure out who he was apart from that terrible misfortune.
At a time when air travel was very dangerous indeed (it killed Will Rogers eight years later), Charles Lindbergh risked his life to become the first person to make a transatlantic flight, and the reasons are in his writing: He was depressed (the downward drop at the end of “Lindbergh”) and OCD (repetitive writing), with heavy pressure in his writing (intensity) and a very strong right slant (expressiveness).
What this indicates is most likely an adrenaline addiction: Being depressed and OCD (low serotonin), he sought to express himself to others (getting attention from his transatlantic flight) while also distracting himself from the feelings for which there were then no medications by the adrenaline rush such an experience would provide.
The depressed slant in “Lindbergh” also explains the disturbing pro-German views Lindbergh later held. Lindbergh was not upset at his father, but rather at the U.S. government for censoring the views of his father, a U.S. Congressman from Minnesota, going so far as to seize and forbid the publication of a book his father wrote in opposition to American involvement in World War One- it was not published until 10 years after his father’s death, and had not yet been published when the above was written, nor when the infamous crime occurred.
World War Two was, of course, a very different situation, but in Lindbergh’s mind, it was America going to war against Germany again, which led to his father being treated as a subversive the first time around, so in an arrogant (imperious upper zones) desire for revenge on the U.S. government, both for this and, in his view, its failure to protect his family, Charles Lindbergh inexcusably took the side of Germany in the Second World War... but he did fly missions that helped liberate New Guinea from Japanese occupation, at great personal risk (despite being a civilian), perhaps again reflecting his enjoyment of adrenaline.
He never forgave the U.S. government, though, especially since FDR refused to reinstate him in the Air Force (hence why he flew 50 missions as a civilian), so in his diary (getting the “last word” in a very vicious way is indicated by the “claw” shape at the end of Lindbergh), Lindbergh, despite flying missions against it, expressed sympathy for Imperial Japan.
Lindbergh was an activist for Native Hawaiian rights, yet was an undeniable anti-Semite... he was deeply concerned about endangered species, yet also a eugenicist... “Jekyll and Hyde” through and through. His physical courage led to his admirable traits, while his obsessive need for (often displaced) revenge led to his unpardonable ones.
In fairness to the man, there but for the Grace of God go I... every trait in his writing I just described is also in mine, except the depression, but I take Prozac, which was not distributed medically until after Lindbergh’s death.
Tumblr media
Burrhus Frederic “B.F.” Skinner (1904-1990), the famous behaviorist, shows writing that is so regular, so conventional (textbook cursive), so lacking in emotional expression and so distant (wide spaces between words and lines) that I believe he was probably on the autism spectrum.
His views of human behavior as reducible to stimulus and response could yet turn out to be correct, but true or not, they are the sort of ideas that might occur to a high-functioning autistic person. If it should turn out that Skinner was right after all, perhaps autism is not a developmental “disorder”, but a more objective view of humankind.
Tumblr media
William Castle (1914-1977) shows extremely secretive writing (many extra loops that turn inward, “hiding” something), which made him so effective at publicity stunts.
He also shows quite the temper, especially in the “hook” in “pal”, and OCD tendencies in crossing the “l” in Castle along with the “t”, and also in trying to make his hesitant pen stroke into “Marie” appear more fluid than it actually was (perfectionism), all traits nearly universal among movie directors.
His large capital letters show confidence, as does the high t-bar in Castle, another trait without which directing would be very difficult... overall, Castle was an “alpha”, “Type A” and intelligent person, with a sneaky streak he put to lucrative use.
Tumblr media
Like so many creative people, James Maury “Jim” Henson (1936-1990), was unquestionably bipolar, as shown in the roller coaster ups and downs in his writing, and also in the alternately low and high t-bars (vacillating self-confidence).
The “false” letters in his writing (e.g. the “m” in Jim that looks like a “w”) show secretiveness, which is why, instead of seeking celebrity on camera, he expressed himself through puppets.
But it goes even further than that: All of his id (primal instinct) energies and even his identity were subsumed into his puppetry- in a way, he was Kermit. The decorative lower zone in “frog” is where Henson asserted all his primal energies, and he drew “Kermit” with a beard (Henson had a beard), showing the extent to which he identified with that character, and also how he coped with his bipolar tendencies.
One rumor I feel the need to dispel (because I had heard it and mistakenly believed it) was than Henson died because he refused medical treatment as a Christian Scientist. He actually had left Christian Science by 1975, and did accept medical treatment. His death was caused by an infection worsened by overwork.
Tumblr media
Brenda Song (1988-) is someone who, like Alison Brie (whose writing I examined in an earlier post), may very well go into politics.
A combination of four traits make her perfectly suited for such a profession: High intelligence (try writing all those back and forth loops in a hurry), extreme self-confidence, especially in “Brenda”- the sharp “tower” she makes for a “d” is very much like the writing of alpha politicians- the insistence on getting the last word at the end of Brenda (with a temper tic), and finally, the physical caution shown in the serpentine writing that moves backward and then forward again unpredictably, over and over (rappers, frequently in physical danger, often show this trait)... obviously, sketchy people are always obsessed with show business celebrities, and also with politicians, so Brenda is prepared for that too.
Her surname shows some fascination with the female form, which in the context of her confident writing probably just means she is really proud of being in good physical condition, and to emphasize her alpha status, she ends her last name with another “getting the last word” pen stroke.
If not politics, she will be a Fortune 500 CEO (she has a minor in business from UC Berkeley). Just watch.

Book Review: Lindbergh: The Crime
Book Review: Lindbergh: The Crime
Lindbergh: The Crime by Noel Behn Lindbergh: The Crime by Noel Behn My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book messed with my head in the best way. I say in my profile that I love books that overturn my apple cart. Apples everywhere on my path. I am actually a little creeped out, to be honest.1. There was no kidnapping. I won’t spoil it for you, but that poor baby was not kidnapped.2. Lindbergh was this…

As usual, I was screwing around on the Internet rather than working on one of my latest stories, and I found something so heartwarming that I just had to share it. I realize that not everybody here is a fan of John Wayne, and I know that most - if not all - of us have had our fair share of gripes with the US government, but really, I feel that this message is too important to not share with everybody, and I want all of you to wake up tomorrow and make something out of your day no matter how horrible it turns out to be. The way I see it, if we all do that, then we might not just end up making a better country, but a better world. Ciao for now, and grease for peace!

My book reviews contain spoilers beyond this point.

As a person who did not exist in 1932 or was a witness to the crime I can say I was actually enthralled by this audiobook. I only knew a little bit about what happened to the Limbaugh baby. But listening to this I can't believe how much stuff went down. I can't believe how flaky Charles was to trying to solve what happened to his son. I understand wanting to be a part of an investigation but he pretty much sabotage everything. That was weird. I enjoyed this book. I love a person when they try to solve a crime or figure out what happened. But for me that's where it stops unless you have DNA proof to place a person there it's all just speculation realistically not enough to actually say so and so did it. But the ride that I went on with this book was a lot of fun so definitely four stars for me.
I was blown away by how much happened and was ignored. Sadly after a certain point you're not surprised by the actions of others. While I can't agree or disagree with the author on the who did it I can say I loved the telling of this and quite enjoyed the book. I liked the narrators voice.

P. Roth-IL COMPLOTTO CONTRO L’AMERICA. Il piccolo Phil racconta la vita, le paure e i desideri di una famiglia ”ebraico-americana” di Newark-New Jersey, in anni pericolosi.
      IL COMPLOTTO CONTRO L’AMERICA di Philip Roth è un’ucronia, ovvero la versione alternativa, di solito indesiderabile, di un fatto reale, una sorta di post-verità trumpiana.  Nel caso specifico si racconta l’elezione a presidente degli USA-1940  di  Charles Lindbergh, il  mitico aviatore che nel 1927 vola in solitaria e in un’unica tappa da  New York a Parigi, alla guida dello “Spirit of…

I literally looked this dude up, my apologize for getting facts wrong or being brief. 
This man was a pilot in the early to mid 1900s. Became a pilot in his early 20s, succeeded in flying to Paris (a lot people died and were afraid to do so) keeping everything has light weight as possible and had a complicated flying mission to get there (sleeping, food, and the front window wasn’t really a front window at all). He wrote about his flight then invented a bunch of things and assisted new-coming pilots during WW2. Basically a very successful pilot and inventor that won awards and was called to do important jobs that effected the future in a positive way.
His son was kidnapped, and then his body was found. He only had 2 years of his life to live. 
Charles has a very accomplished life, but having to lose his son was tragic. I hope he gets more love, and we all gain more knowledge about him. He sounds like a cool dude.
Because I made an Ikemen ver. of him, I generally expect him to walk through the door (because we are living in the late 1800s - so my HC is that he walks through it like MC). He has a good life at Comte’s mansion. His life has been lived, but he is depressed about the son’s incident. WITH THE POWER OF MC’S LOVE, he will eventually heals and copes, but will never forget the horrific incident. The other residents will support him as best they can to make sure he has a good and healthy life.
(apologies for getting super dark - this is a fantasy ver again, just like all the other characters in the mansion.)
My design was a joke among my friends. I have no idea how it came about. One of them always posts pics of the sky, and someone eventually said SKY DADDY. My immediate thought was, I can make him on artbreeder (like how people animate soda into anime people) - so I did, and since my posts are Ikemen related I asks one of the friends to give me a pilot (Bc he looks like a cloud in the SKY) and made him Charles Lindbergh.
Thanks for your guys love for my ikemen gang.
