For the poster, I have but one quote:

       Marriage means commitment. Of course, so does insanity.

Given your sense of sanity, I think if you ever get hitched, your future wife would surely have a lot of fun with you... hahaha....

Sometimes, sanity is but a delusion of your true insanity... Which are you???

Ah, a song from Billy Joel comes to mind:

Even rode my motorcycle in the rain
And you told me not to drive
But I made it home alive
So you said that only proves that I'm insane

You may be right
I may be crazy
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
Turn out the light
Don't try to save me
You may be wrong for all I know
But you may be right

Remember how I found you you there
Alone in your electric chair
I told you dirty jokes until you smiled
You were lonely for a man
I said take me as I am
'Cause you might enjoy some madness for a while
