My learning magic was just a side-effect to learning escapology.

I was actually surprised there were so many people with OCD on this forum. I wonder if there is a higher than average propensity towards OCD within the magic community, after all, it is a rather obsessive hobby, makes sense.

It also explains why people will go to the ends of the earth defending their position here, regardless of its merit.


OCD is a bit like Asperger's Syndrome in that most of what you hear is self-diagnosis. Not sure why it's appealing to bestow either of these on yourself, but it's become very common.

Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I haven't bestowed it upon myself; I was diagnosed in 1988 and I'll leave it at that.

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I have juggled for about an hour a day for the past 32 years, with only a brief pause for open heart surgery, and I know nothing about eccentricities, I am totally dedicated, and obsessed. In fact I juggled for the first three or four years before I found out that you can make money juggling. I learned my first magic trick to compliment my juggling act. I call myself a magician these days because I'm old, but the magic is just a cover up for my juggling obsession.


Juggler here as well...is it eccentric to play with your balls in public?

As opposed to playing with other people's balls in public? Smile
