You can’t try to out-crazy some folks.  “Crazy” isn’t a thing that some people have chosen to work at- Crazy runs deep and can’t be pretended at.

In other words, a guy wearing armor made of craft foam sheets and pop rivets is not going to out-crazy somebody who actually believes he is wearing neutron armor forged from space diamonds and zambolian cumquat seed poison spikes, but who is actually wearing newspapers and twine.   The craft-foam armor guy isn’t going to out-crazy anyone from Team US, neither.  It’s a casual, off-the-cuff crazy that doesn’t usually involve space armor, but it’s effective.
