    have settled into the habit of going to the movies once a week, and sometimes they don't even know what movie they're going to watch until they get there, which is...odd, if you think about it.

    Then there's the clothes-buyers (who also may be movie-goers, as well), who must purchase a garment or a pair of shoes weekly, as if they're feeding some kind of closet monster, and if they don't keep one step ahead of him(?), they'll end up with absolutely nothing to wear.

    Yeah, there's a mass psychology at work. It's called MasterCarditis. I'm tempted to cut mine up right now, but...there's some stuff I need to get first. :)
