Measure Twice, Cut Once
When a recipe calls for a half-inch dice or a 45-degree cut, most cooks think that's a general suggestion. Not so the Obsessive Chef (this cutting board was originally called the OCD Chef, but somebody must have objected). This 9" x 12" (22.86 x 30.48 cm) beechwood cutting board clearly spells out the most precise measurements in exacting detail. It's strong and long-wearing, but we recommend that you resist the compulsion to wash it 20 times after each use.
Are You Curious...?
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is almost as common as asthma and diabetes. Those afflicted by this anxiety disorder are obsessed with thoughts that cause fear and worry, and they often take up compulsive behaviors (such as hand-washing, hoarding, and nervous rituals) to relieve their anxious thoughts. In medeival times people with OCD behaviors were thought to be possessed by the Devil, and the treatment of choice was exorcism. Today we consider it a result of both biological and psychological factors. People respond to drugs and behavior therapy to varying degrees. OCD is not the same thing as Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder, which lies on the autism spectrum. A specialist can tell them apart, although they look pretty much alike to laymen.
