Am I Crazy ? Part 1 of a Serious Series of the Study of Sanity


Did you ever wish there was a definitive way to find this out ? To finally put to rest all of your worries and fears of your own sanity or insanity ?  Well you are in luck !  And believe it or not, it has been around for over 70,  yes I said 70 years…  567 True/False questions that get to determine whether or not you are suited for life with the general public or just suited for a straight jacket.

I could give them all to you now,  but that would just be crazy talk.   So here they are in 6 parts,  100 at a time.  The original has not been modified, as deranged as that sounds.  There have simply been 567 additions by a writer with a screw loose that shall remain incognito and unhinged.

Is this ill advised, half baked, harebrained, and non compos mentis ? (that last one is my favorite)   Perhaps it is, perhaps it is…  But that’s also what they said about sailing the Titantic, and look where that is now !!!

(The first 100 are dedicated to Michael Sage before his birthday of some numeric significance.  He is the true reason you are reading any of this)
