Richard can bathe.  I can't rewire my central nervous system.  *Duh*!

But that's not the point.  *I* don't mind that Richard doesn't wash, and
didn't bring it up to be insulting.  He made his choice, and on the whole
I think the world is probably better off for it.  But neither you nor 
he should maintain any illusions about what he traded away.
