Paranoid people have a hard time - the problem, as I see it, is that the world is just too safe for them. What if everyone really WAS out to get you ? Then you'd be quite correct to suspect them all along. We should create a haven for these people, where life is exceptionally dangerous and so anyone especially perceptive of potential "bad things" will have an advantage.

       What would Paranoid Hell be like then?

       You don't think I'm paranoid, do you? I'm sure most people think I'm paranoid. I'd really hate for everyone to think that I was paranoid.

       Paranoia is a myth promulgated by the vast conspiracy of psychiatrists who want to control our minds and rule the world.

       It's all due to the weasels. The weasels I tell you! You just think they're fuzzy little rodents, but they're out to get all of us. I saw one yesterday while I was huddled in my room. They sneak around just waiting to pop. You believe me don't you? You'll see.

       Baked. It's either called "prison" or "Idaho."

       Ah... I feel better about myself. I'm not paranoid, I'm just being rational about the fact that postal workers have a secret organization in which they release their 'postal' tendancies by randomly selecting a name - and no matter where I move, they will always know where I live!!! btw... must... say... "WEASELS ARE NOT RODENTS!" Phew! I doubt I accomplished anything by saying that. Also - weird thing - 'pop goes the weasel' refers to a spinning wheel. I'm guessing that before electricity, mechanical devices were powered by small woodland creatures? Nah, I'd have to be paranoid if I believed that.

       Just because your paranoid doesn't mean that everyone isn't out to get you.   

       No need to create a haven. Such a place already exists--well, it once did on television, anyway. It was called *the Village*.

       Yes. Paranoia paradise would have to feature dwarfs in dufflecoats with pointed sticks.

       And what about the rabbits?!! I tell you its all a fluffy bunny act!   

       Why Skippy72, think SPINNING wheel (really fast), think weasel, some velocity versus something tied to a thread mixed in.......   

       Personally when I first heard it I thought it had to do with popcorn and then I learned about rat on a stick....
