    Have a care, lads, someone will either find or invent a new planet, and ship off the lot of you to it. Then your abysmal behaviour will no longer by aberrant but normal, as you lot will all be doing the same.

    Makes me remember a VERY STRANGE chap I knew years back... he loved doing strange things in public. Almost got us hauled off to the Greybar Hotel one afternoon. We were browsing through a rather largish tropical fish store, looking at the various fish in the tanks. After staring as if transfixed at one of the tanks, in a very loud "stage whisper" he announced "fish are FAR OUT to watch when you're STONED". Two young Mums snatched their children and left the store posthaste, the floor clerk began to "stalk" us, making as if to do something, anything, and one other customer put a very odd countenance up his face..... I suspect trying to discern whether my "friend" was stoned at the time, and whether he oughtn't ring up the local bobs.

    Another time we were at the grocer's, checking out, he had put down a purchase of a few dollars and tendered a twenty dollar bill. The clerk made change, of course including a ten. He took up the ten, inspected it against the light, and announced "oh good, I was needing to buy another lid, now here's to pay for it".

    One never knew what sort of calamity he mightn't try to stir up. Funny thing, he never did anything like that unless he was absolutely straight-up sober, and totally clean. He had an uncanny way of leaving chaos in his wake.
