    Crazy is all a matter of perspective. I've gotten some pretty weird looks when I mention the prices I've paid for some of my knives. Not to mention the fact I have tattoos on my fingers, palms, arms, chest, neck...

    Jesus, this took a turn for the serious.

    Yes Mark, people talking on their Bluetooth look crazy to me too.

    And yes, people who see or hear thing are crazy in my book no matter how functional, well diagnosed, or related to me they are. Not bat sh!t crazy mind you, just regular crazy... Or maybe even "a lil crazy" in the best cases.

    That there are more mentally ill people wandering the streets is due to decisions made by lawmakers. The fact that there are more are more "armed and dangerous" people about is also attributable to lawmakers.
    OK, I understand my comments are not really funny.
    We are a small community that mostly cares for it's own. The "Crazy People" I mentioned get taken care of by the locals.
    When one of them are in the grocery store getting something usually one of the people in line says "I'll take care of that". Sometimes it will be one of the checkers or managers.
    There are others who give them a place to stay at night.

    The mental health agencies in Grants Pass take the stance that if they are not an immediate danger to themselves or others, there is nothing they can do.
    We do not have any local police and the county police say they are unable to respond unless it is a serious crime in progress because of budget cuts.

    The only police we see are state patrol with speed traps and county police setting up road blocks at harvest time.

    I am sure I am exaggerating a bit, but it seems like law enforcement around here only participates in income generating activities.

    My statements were purely meant to be taken in an academic sense, and do not reflect any intent on your part Mark. It is funny seeing people with Bluetooth gear in their head walking around, gesticulating and talking to themselves though. No offense to anyone on the forum who does that, it'd just the way my brain reacts to it.

    Lets put the political and PC rants down and back away...

    As to the OP:
    Lol, I've had the same experience with bluetooth users. I also have an ear piece, but I try not to use it in crowed public places. However, I do sometimes use it while walking the dog, so maybe I look slightly less crazy or just a different, more Dr. Dolittle variety.

    Just wait until the new iPhone namo brain implant comes out....

    Now that paranoid schizophrenia is both contagious and a political movement, it's indeed tough. Fortunately, there are shibboleths that can help the discerning viewer. "Sheeple", "globalists", "Cutco"....
