The Bathtub Test
It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself
from time to time, and this should help get you started.
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor
asked the Director what the criterion was which defined 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," said the visitor. "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?"
