n8:It sounds to me like there's a real fine line (as opposed to a gray area) separating those with a little clutter problem from those who can't physically move around their house because they save dead batteries.
MOI:Um, how are you defining a fine line? That sounds scarier to me than having a gray area, frankly.

oh, I meant that the fineness of the line separating mental illness from being a bit of a packrat makes it easy to tell which side you're on. It's a simplistic, psychologically naive way of framing a statement most of the time, and if I remembered anything from the psych classes I took in college, I probably wouldn't have used it. There are probably degrees (shades of gray) in just about any type of mental illness. My point was this:

y'all aren't crazy.

then again, crazy people don't think they're crazy. hm.

-n8 (probably not crazy)
