    There's this story about these four students, back in the 70's (I believe). They reported to the gates of a phychiatric ward claiming they were crazy, just to see what'd happen. They went individually, though on the same day.

    One student was questioned and walked out after a short interview with a psychiatrist.

    One student was kept (for observation, I believe) for about 2 weeks, after which he was declared sane once again.

    Two students were kept at a closed ward... for about 2,5 years, at which time it transpired that the students weren't insane to begin with and found themselves in a joke turned terribly bad. It took the original student to tell the psychiatrists that they were friends and reported themselves to the institution "for fun". It is also said that their situation worsened over time, indicating they actually became crazy in the ward...

    When this came out, the psychiatric world was shocked by this incident. They promised themselves to "pay more attention"... but there is, of course, no guarantee of this never happening again...

    Now, know yourself a bit and share with us:

    Would you be let out after the initial interview or would you be kept there untill your family would be asked to collect your corpse at the back door?

    Hehe, yeah, me either. I think I'm as crazy as Cyllíeth. Really insane, man. When we walk around in school we talk in assumed high voices. But it's fun to invent songs while talking like that, when I say "la" and she answers "la la" or "laa" or... ah, however, it's quite crazy...
    What the hell am I talking about?

    I'd probably be kept for observation. Not because I'm crazy or even slightly isane but I'm assuming their probing me in interviews won't get them far since I don't share too much personal stuff. Pychiatrists etc always think holding back sharing feelings always means something more.

    I'd be kept for observation, not because I'm out there, more because I am a bit of a liar and have anger issues and you couldn't get me to seek help anywhere else.

    Same for me. though they might keep me after that observation, especially since it's a bit in the family.

    I think maybe my ulta violent tendancies would see me labotomised and drooling.

    Perhaps and indian smothing me with a pillow before throwing a drinking fountain through a window and escaping might also be nice.
