Nuts is when you don`t have control over your actions, and crazy is when you do something out of the ordinary but are aware that you are doing it.

Nuts - more of a term of endearment, kinda shake your head and smile.

Crazy - reckless or insane, to the point of creating fear and concern in those around you.

I also agree with styeiles.

Crazy = insane.

Nuts = appears to be insane, but has a method to the madness.

Nuts is lighthearted for wacky.

Crazy is insane in the membrane.

I don't think there's much of a difference really. I use both words to mean the same thing.

At the risk of getting all professorial on you (he says as he dons a tweed jacket with leather elbow patches), both are idomatic slang expressions which habor subtle shades of meaning conferred by either the speaker, the listener, or both (see

Research shows a direct correlation between the nuts who consider such questions and the crazies who try to answer said questions. Both are quite likely mentally ill (he says as he removes his coat and hangs it on a hat tree next to the classroom door).

I would say "nuts" is less serious.

When someone, say, dangles their mansack over a beartrap, you would say, "You're nuts, Clem."

Whereas, if someone opens fire on top of the water tower, shooting every third blonde female in the eye for Quetzalcoatl, while wearing the flayed skin suit of the mailman, they'd be "crazy."

Afterall, it's after Labor Day.
(Only a madman would wear a flayed skin suit after Labor Day...MADNESS!)

nuts is when you ask what crazy is , crazy is when you ask if crazy and nuts are the same thing.

nuts = dressing like napolean and such

Crazy = killing a family of four, and wearing their skin to the supermarket the next day.

It all comes down to a matter of how harmless the individual is
