I'm watching a crappy Lifetime movie (I know, aren't they all?) and the
classic "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you"
came up. What does Fred have?
    _bumper  snickers:_
1. Warning: I speed up to run over small animals  2. I break for tailgaters
3. Just
because You're  PARANOID doesn't mean the world is not out to get  you.

As I toured some office the other day, I observed a poster over the desk of
one employee which said, "Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they
aren't out to get you." I think we can all identify with that.
