    During a visit to the mental asylum, a man asked the director “How do you determine whether or not an individual should be institutionalized?”

    “Well,” said the director, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the individual and ask him, or her, to empty the bathtub.”

    “Oh, I understand,” the man said, “a normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”

    “No.” said the director, “A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?”

    I remember one writer, can’t remember who, relating this as an anecdote.
    He wanted to join an I.Q. club… their requirement was that he put a billiard ball in his mouth. He put it in … and then found out he could pull it out!
    He had to go to a doctor for a shot of muscle relaxant and walked around for a few days with his jaw hanging open.
    When he recovered, he went back to to demand to be admitted to the I.Q. Club.
    They refused.
    Why?
    If he had refused to put a cue ball in his mouth, that would have been proof that he belonged in the club!

    Some blankety-blanks would call in bomb threats on test days in the Bend Lapine school district in the late 1980s. Guess that was their version of the protests of the 1960s that would occur during finals week.

    The answer was suppose to be “doesn’t strike twice in the same place” – but that’s incorrect – IT DOES and that’s WHY we have lightning rods

    I had an interesting incident many years ago when I was incarcerated into the Army – I was given a wheelbarrow and a shovel and told to move pile of sand from point A to point B. The dipso sergeant walked away and when he returned 10 minutes later the pile of sand was moved. Of course, he could SEE the tire tracks from the rough terrain front loader i had used (which i was licensed to operate). Thought he was going to have a stroke on the spot… Just because he gave me a wheelbarrow and shovel didn’t mean that I had to USE THEM (of course, it was IMPLIED, just not STATED)

    NICE! So what happened? Did he blow his top, or send you to OCS?

    The way I would have told the story, he could not have pulled it out.

    There was a man who was living proof against the statement the “Lightning never strikes twice in the same place”, but then he got struck a 3rd time!
