SAPS: an acronym for Severe Affective Paranoia Syndrome. The prime symptom of SAPS patients is that they are irrationally and unreasonably anxious about low risk threats and tend to not consider much higher risk situations.
"SAPS patients tend to live in gated communities, drive SUV's, and buy anthrax insurance." or, "This SAPS mother gave her daughter a cell phone so she could contact her in case of disaster, but never allowed her out into the real world so that she could learn to note risky situations in advance and thus avoid disaster."
