Anything worth taking seriously is worth making fun of



If you don't appreciate humor and satire about serious subjects you should skip this file. I would never minimize the devastating affects of emotional or mental problems. I understand those things very well. But it is important to learn to laugh at our 'peculiarities'. Laughing won't make problems go away but it can make them easier to live with. Our differences makes the world interesting.
This file includes Fear and Neuroses, Going Crazy and Psychiatry.
Also see Stress, Emotional and Mental Health, Addiction, and Scrapping the Difficult Times.

Psychiatry



Bathtub Test

A visitor at a mental institution asked the Director what criteria defines whether a patient needs to be institutionalized.
"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub."
Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would choose the bucket since it is larger than the teacup or spoon."
"No," answered the Director. "A normal person would pull the plug."

So how did you do?
