The answer to last week’s challenge is Q: During a visit to a mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criteria is that defines if a patient should be admitted. “Well,” said the Director, “we fill up a bathtub. Then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub. Okay, here’s your test: Would you use the spoon, the teacup or the bucket?” “Oh, I understand,” said the visitor. “A normal person would choose the bucket, as it is larger than the spoon.” What was the Director’s response?
A: No, said the Director. A sane person would just pull the plug. (Would you like a bed near the window or over near the heater)?
