When they said I was clinically insane,
what did they mean?
That I went about it scientifically?
That there was a method to my madness?

Wa alaikum as salaam. I used to be in a white room with padded walls years ago but now I'm just at home. ;-)
Please come and eat food at my place this Eid. It's what we do best! [This is an official and formal invite, which I will repeat on your blog and in an email.]

I have long had the feeling that everyone on this godforsaken planet is insane -- it really is only a matter of degree. Hell, we didn't climb out of the primordial ooze and develop the ability to think rationally only to become like well-adjusted giraffes or content little myna birds now, did we?

Ray Bradbury is quoted as saying, "Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage."

On the other hand, my favourite prophet of the 20th century, Frank Zappa, once said, "There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life." (He also sang, "Evelyn, a dog, having undergone further modification pondered the significance of short-person behavior in pedal-depressed panchromatic resonance and other highly ambient domains... 'Arf' she said")

Are the stupid sane or insane? This may well be a Zen imponderable.

I think Evelyn certainly had a point.
