    Investigating Boise's love affair with the prolific Papyrus
      Some folks are bothered by innocuous human behaviors, like chewing with your mouth open, for instance. Or talking during a movie, chatting loudly on a cell phone in a restaurant, driving too quickly or too slowly, adding salt to food before tasting it or leaving the toilet seat up.
