oh yes, the crazy people

Multiple encounters with crazy people today: while walking to my office after the Dean event a woman stopped in the crosswalk and started yelling at me to back off. back off man! what's your problem?

I took an alternate route to my building and sure enough she was going there too. and getting on the same elevator. as she rushed to get to the elevators, she again started yelling at me.

I tried to let her into the elevator first, but that freaked her out too. I don't know why I didn't just wait for the next elevator. But whatever. Nothing really happened, but I hope that she was going to see someone who would give her medication.

also on the bus tonight: a guy kept challenging people to get off the bus with him. when he finally left, he said. come on man. it's time. sixteen matches.

I don't know what this means, but it seems like a really excellent challenge.

a little freaky indeed. though the madman on the bus wasn't directly challenging me. i was hiding behind my iPod headphones.
BACK OFF MAN! WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?!?!?!
I HATE MENTAL PATIENTS! O.K. DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT?!? FUCK OFF AND GO BACK TO YOUR GODDAMN INSITUTIONAL LIVING SITUATION.
I love stories like these
I will always always talk about how many of them come out of seattle...is it like this in all metro cities?
yes. I have a feeling it is. Maybe sometimes more interesting in other cities, in fact. The street beggars in San Francisco and Vancouver seem to be much more creative.
Doesn't March Madness begin with 16 matches before it's narrowed down to the Final Four?
March Madness starts with 65 teams --> 32 first round games + one play-in slot.

Then of course Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight, Final Four, etc.

anyway the guy was all hopped up on something, I doubt that he was using any serious logic.
