During a visit to a mental asylum, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized. “Well,? said the director, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.”
“Oh, I understand,” I said. “ A normal person would use the bucket because
it is larger than the spoon or the teacup.”
“No.” said the director, “ A normal person would just pull the plug. Do you
want a bed by the window?”
So what did you pick?
