I objected to that one so they kept it out...

I resemble that remark, and don't forget it.

I would guess that the ones who think they are the only sane ones are more off kilter than the rest...

You might want to question the sanity of one that would associate with a bunch of insane people.

It's my goal to slowly but surely direct the crazies back into a life of sanity. That means that I must spend time with crazy people. It's burden, but with such a gift to share I simply must endure...

And there is another type of Caps Lock user who doesn’t capitalize whole sentences but INSTEAD capitalizes a few SPECIFIC words for EMPHASIS. Now read a sentence like that aloud, shouting every time you come to a capitalized word, and tell me you do not sound like an absolute freakin’ lunatic. This method can turn even basic known facts into crazy-sounding gibberish (“The SQUARE of the HYPOTENUSE of a RIGHT triangle equals the SUM of the squares of the OTHER two sides”).
I think foundit66 is the only person on this board that does that MORE often than I do.

I do want to crazily point out something about this sentence,

(“The SQUARE of the HYPOTENUSE of a RIGHT triangle equals the SUM of the squares of the OTHER two sides”)
In The Wizard of Oz, after the scarecrow gets his diploma, he incorrectly says "Isosceles triangle", not "Right triangle".

That's cuz the Wizard gave him a diploma from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks.
