    if the potential for damage enters into it.  I collect some things myself (about 12000 books, 37 horns, and more than 500 pieces of music), and working on the music and writing definitely feed some form of OCD in me, but ... where do you draw the line?  None of mine (except for some of the music) could hurt anyone, unless a bookshelf fell on me, or if I dropped a tuba on you from altitude.

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

      Please film it. I have some hilarious scenarios rolling around in my head and I need some confirmation ;)

        the band teacher (not a great teacher, but a fun guy) arranged a paper airplane contest for the school.  We at the time had a very nice 2 level stadium (where the Chargers used to play, before Qualcomm was built).  Planes were launched from the top, and graded for distance and style.

        He finished off with an ancient trumpet he had found in the basement of the music building.  That got the applause.
