Most people glarp, & virtually everyone who glarps wants & tries to do it well. But most (or at least many) glarpers glarp badly. What is glarping??

Is it an activity? Something that most people do everyday?
Does bad glarping affect the people negatively? Is it better to glarp badly than not to glarp at all?
If someone could glarp well, would this make them celebrated? Is glarping competitive? For fun? Necessary?
Is there a relevant group of people who do not glarp?

Would they be aware that they are g;arping badly? If they wanted to glarp better, are there glarping clsses they could attend? Books on glarping they could read? Does one have to learn to glarp, or do they just pick it up? Are there any laws related to glarping?
The specific group of non-glarpers, are they linked by:

Religion?

Well, they shouldn't. Glarping is not a medical matter. But doctors & esp. psychiatrists seem to think all sorts of things fall within their area of expertise. Probably most psychiatrists would distinguish between normal & abnormal glarping, but I hope glarpers will have the independence of judgment not to worry about the psychiatric seal of approvalis there any medication related to glarping? no

is it possible to take a picture of someone in the process of glarping?
can I take a picture while I'm glarping?

regarding glarping and age.. which do you think is more important for youth and glarping.. physical maturity? emotional maturity?

would one pick a special place to glarp?
or might you wind up glarping while commuting home from work?

could anyone describe themselves "in need of a glarp session?" glarped out?

are there glarping aids at the pharmacy? clothing store? any store?

regarding glarping and age.. which do you think is more important for youth and glarping.. physical maturity? emotional maturity?Frankly, thew concept of maturity makes me gag. As Kelly Cherru (an American writer) says, "Maturity os for people who don't have the good Goddamn sense to tremble with terror every blessed moment of their existence." As an atheist, I prefer to omit the end of that sentence"who don't appreciate the enormity of the debt of gratiutude we owe to God." But to get back to your question, physical "maturity" is probably more relevant

would one pick a special place to glarp? not usually
or might you wind up glarping while commuting home from work?yes

could anyone describe themselves "in need of a glarp session?" possibly glarped out? possibly

are there glarping aids at the pharmacy? no clothing store? noany store? no

Has glarping been portrayed in any popular movies? novels?

Is this activity to do with emotions? thoughts?
Is it a physical activity? When you say it is necessary, do you mean by law? or for survival? for comfortable living? Is its necessity and importance arguable? Is it simply your opinion that glarping is necessary? The group of people who do not glarp --> Would this fact be illegal? dangerous? irresponsible? rebelious?

Is glarping considered inappropriate by any significant relevant group? unnecessary?

Does it actively involve:
Talking?
Moving your limbs?
Writing something down?
Reading?
Closing your eyes?
Moving some other part of your body?

Would it be possible to glarp with someone else over the telephone?
Does glarping make any noise?
Is the distribution of times between glarping approximately exponential? (sorry, let's make that more clearer) Is a person more likely glarp soon if they haven't glarped for a long time?
Are there any people for whom it is impossible for them to glarp?
Would it be possible to train a chimpanzee to glarp? a dog? a goldfish?
Books about glarping, are they usually found in the "self-help" section of the bookshop?
Is it possible to glarp in your sleep?

Is having children relevant? Raising children? Is the reason people under 10 would not glarp because they are too young to have children?

I am assuming that glarping is not connected to the actual act of being pregnant or giving birth since gender is irrelevant?
Is it only parents who could glarp? Does glarping happen after the child is born? Relevant how long after?

Having sex?
Giving birth?
Becoming pregnant?
Something that happens during pregnancy?
Getting married?
Something you do with your child?

Can both males and females do it?

Is it only parents who could glarp? I think so Does glarping happen after the child is born? possibly Relevant how long after? it would have to be VERY soon after, probably within a couple of days

Would it make sense to say, "I glarped my baby"? (possibly with a few minor grammatical adjustments)
If a couple had adopted a newborn baby, could th adoptive parents glarp it? Could the birth parents glarp, even though they no longer had the baby?
Can glarping be done any time from conception of the baby until it is a couple of days old? If I saw a pregnant woman in the street could I glarp involving her baby? Wouls she think that was strange?
Does a baby or foetus need to be present for glarping? Would a child whose parents had never glarped be in any way different from a child whose parents had?

If I saw a child, would I immediately be able to tell if its parents had glarped? If not, would I be able to tell if I spent time and go to know the child? Is there a definite way of telling a child whose parents glarped from one whose didn't, or is it more guesswork? Would a child whose parents has glarped badly be different if their parents had glarped well? Would glarping while the child was in the womb require a visit to hospital?
Is it possible to glarp an adult? To glarp oneself?

**********SPOILER **********
All parents name their children & most, unlike the father of Ima Hogg, are eager to do it well. But my informal & completely unscientific survey (asking friends & acquaintances) indictates that most people dislike their given names. This is hardly surprising, since parents have nothing to go on, because they have to name a child who doesn't yet have a personality. That's why more people should try my solution--change your name legally!! Thanks for solving it, Lynne--nice to see you again--& of course, I'm about to post a new puzzle you know where.
