So there's this thing called obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD. If you are me and only have the mild version, you end up rearranging the dishes in the dishwasher or checking to make sure you have your keys four times before leaving the house on the off chance you forgot, or alphabetizing your DVDs one too many times. If you are this guy, things can get a lot worse. And beautiful. And tragic.

Neil Hilborn, the amazing guy who wrote this, had this to say after we wrote it up: "I am overwhelmed and humbled by the support and compliments that have been all around me these past few days."

If you want to see more of his amazing work, you could Like him on Facebook. And you think others should see this (like the 1,500,000 people who already did) you could continue to help overwhelm him in a good way and tweet and share this. Totally your call though.
