About this card: black boxObsessive compulsive disorder is a silent killer - mostly of bacteria and household germs.

I created a new category of cards for OCD week anyway. Just in case it's, like, now.
The Theory of the Leisure Class, Thorstein Veblen. Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam. Tigerman by Nick Harkaway. It's a fun list.
