When I was a teenager I used to obsessively draw connecting dots all over my school notebooks. Apparently I haven't changed all that much!
However, there are some differences - these larger ovals are only joined to their most immediate neighbours and I was able to make aesthetic decisions about leaving some of the outer ones unconnected. I always knew when I was drawing my schoolbooks that there was a point when joining every single dot to every single other dot made for a bad drawing but I could never quite break the emotional compulsion to do so.
Perhaps I have learnt something in the last 20 years after all...
