The Insanity Test
During a visit to an Israeli mental asylum, a visitor asked Director Epstein what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
"Well," said Director Epstein, "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 Director Epstein, "A normal person would pull the plug. Now, do you want a bed near the door or window?"
