Also, in Homer's Odyssey, forgetfulness of life is a peril for Odysseus' shipmates when they eat of the Lotus on the island of Lotus Eaters.

Heh I can garantie that your maddness is not even in the shadow of mine and my friends...We have a nerd who wears the shirt with the piriodic table on it, even in winter! We have a comptor nerd who fixs pcs with sissors and sticky tape...an quite a few can speak klingon, one can speak lord of the rings elfish and I have been known to dance like (as my beloved GF kindly remarked :evil: ) "A castrated chicken!"

Lets not get into a madness slanging match, or get it mixed up with eccentricity... but it would be fun. At the moment, i think i hold the award among my friends for incomprehensibility, though, and occasionally it kind of bubbles over.

Well I as me and my friends proudly label ourselves "freeks and misfits" or "Those rejected from the reject bin!" I think you understand where I am coming from. Manic depressants, disgrutaled socalist scotsman, lesbians, Bi's, computor nerds/hackers and trekkies..we got the lot!

And we are all raging left-wingers!

So don't talk to me about mad, your preaching to the choir!

I am mad, but I'm saving up to be eccentric.
