Connecting In The Line Of Sight
Everybody's posting about complexes they have as opposed to rituals; surely a ritual is a series of events leading to a conclusion (e.g. satisfaction) and therefore different to just something that makes you a bit OCD?

Either way, my 'something that makes me a bit OCD' is a bit weird, I've done it for as long as I can remember, but only recently have I been consciously thinking about it: Things have to cross in my line of sight. Not sure how to explain this in words, but if for instance I'm driving down a road approaching a road sign (obviously to go past it, not driving right at it) and there's a car coming the other direction I'll intentionally - but possibly subconsciously - speed up or slow down so we pass it at the same time.

Or, again if I'm driving, the street lamps must all go out of sight behind the rear view mirror. Or the mouse cursor must line up exactly with the line of the text box or be exactly in the middle of the white area to the left of the text box (imagine lines were drawn from the corners crossing through the centre, the mouse will lie where those lines would cross.

It's weird and annoys me but it's so simple and requires such little effort I can't stop it. Gah!!!!

All good fun,
until your irresponsible driving causes a pile-up.

As a passenger, when it's raining and I notice the wind-screen wipers are going, I can't stop watching them until the "downswipe" coincides perfectly with a lamp-post or sign.
