You Know You're a Logician When...
You have socks of two kinds in your clothing bag (both kinds are white, but the ribbing at the ankle differs), and when dressing, you pull three socks and wear the two that match (In that situation, pulling three socks guarantees a match).

When in doubt, eat chocolate.
If doubt persists, have a hot fudge sundae.

When you find the question "Is the set of all sets which are not members of themselves a member of itself?" deeply disturbing. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

When your groceries are in alphabetical order, get back to me. Until then, ...

When I had a kitchen, I kept my spices in alphabetical order. Does that count? Smile

Nope.
I believe that studies, (really!) have been done on the organization of socks and undies. They don't count, and neither do spices.

Speaking of undies, bra manufacturers recommend that women keep 15 bras in their wardrobe. At $35 to $50 for a decent bra, that works out to $525 to $750 for bras alone. Who are these people? Men? Undecided

Ya got that right! I notice that you're in PA. Are we, by chance, neighbors? I'm just south of Pittsburgh.
