Mike had this to say on his Facebook wall: “Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.”
I responded: And to prove that, try this for size – “In a world of fugitives, the person taking the opposite direction will appear to run away.” -T.S. Eliot.
Mulla Nasrudin was having frequent episodes of anxiety attacks and suffered hypertension as a result.
“The reports are fine,” the doctor said, “you should probably see a psychiatrist.”
“Yes. Maybe you have a business or a family problem that’s causing these panic attacks. Just a few weeks ago, I had a similar case. The patient was worried about a $20,000 loan and had a nervous breakdown.”
“How did you cure him?” Mulla asked.
“I told him to declare bankruptcy and that life was too short to be wasted over a loan,” the doctor said. “He’s enjoying perfect health now and has completely stopped worrying.”
“I know,” Mulla said. “He has not only stopped worrying, he has also stopped picking up his phone. I’m the man to who he owes the $20,000.”
