This is George on his way to the busstop. He's
thinking about how cities have an observable insanity index - and that cities rise to a
certain level of worldliness when the insanity index permits people to openly display
their tics and quirks on public transportation - things like incessant rummaging,
twitching, monologues etc.
George feels most secure in cities with a relatively high insanity index, allowing, but
not requiring public displays of derailed individuality.
Cities with overblown insanity indexes seemed to require you to display a tic or quirk to
be allowed to ride the bus.
