"There is a difference between being crazy and insane. Insanity requires intelligence while crazy thrives on stupidity."

Love it! xD

To start off, nice color scheme, as it reflects a nice contrast. The black and white go so well hand-in-hand, yet make a very flamboyant difference. The fonts are great, especially the front side, and the erratic fashion is perfect with the quote. It adds interest and personality, making it stand out from others.

Next, the originality on this is just...well, original! I don't believe it's been used nor said before, as this is new to me, and it seems legit. Of course, I suppose I can never be too sure, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. c: So, great job being creative! 

Other positives include the humor, as everyone loves a good laugh, the mismatch of the fonts, accenting the message, and making it, in a way, catchy. You seem like the person that understands that the main goal is to design an appealing shirt that someone wants to wear, which I like. I mean, some designs are great but it's just not something you want to to wear; to advocate for.

To be honest, I think that's it. I can't really find any detriments to harp about. xD All in all, great shirt and I wish you luck in the contest. I know that I'd wear this shirt! (voted) c:

I would like to ask a question...

I would like to ask in a manner of quizzical curiosity, but worry that the formality of typing might make it come off the wrong way. While I can see the point your trying to make in the above statement... I wonder, are you actually stating these as literally definitions of the words "Insane" and "Crazy"? or are you stating that this is what you "feel" they mean to you?

Insane is a Clinical word defining a particular condition. Without going too deep into the foundations of psychology or psychoanalysis individuals are generally classified as "Insane" when they lack the mental capacity to connect to an empirical reality. To put it bluntly: insane people are incapable of rational thought. One could argue that they lack intelligence. (I do realize their are many and varied variables here and I am of course generalizing.)

Crazy, on the other hand is a Colloquial term, generally not found in formal conversation but is a crude illiterate term for a variety of meanings. (id. est. "She went Crazy." "He is Crazy for her." "That was the Craziest ride ever.")

Language is always defined, despite what is read in the Standard Dictionary, by the Discourse Community that uses it. In other words, people choose their own words to communicate best to those surrounding them.

In saying this I do also realize that language is a limited medium, and that with only 26 characters and under 30 punctuations we are expected to say a variety of things and describe infinite possibilities...

But I do wonder that in creating new definitions we run the risk of confusing ourselves and others?

Cute idea.

The difference between myself and the madman is that the madman insists he is sane.
