If some people are unhinged, are others properly hinged?

If some people are disgruntled, are others properly gruntled?

If some people are discombomulated, are others properly combobulated?

This would all seam reasonable enough...

If some people are disparaged, are others properly paraged?

If some people are utterly unflappable, are others moderately flappable?
