1. An aircraft military officer (if I'm remembering correctly) can become "grounded" (getting out of his missions, or something) if he can prove he is "unfit to fly" (insane).
2. To prove this, he must request a sort of sanity evaluation test.
3. However, insane people do not know they are insane, and thus no insane person would request an evaluation test.
4. Therefore, to request an evaluation proves you are sane. Another point to add is that trying to get out of combat through means such as this one is a very sane thing to do.
5. Because of this, it is impossible to be determined insane via an evaluation test, and thus, impossible to be deemed "unfit to fly."
I found this concept on Wikipedia during the trip to the computer lab. I thought it was a wonderfully convoluted idea. After reading the article, I was, for awhile, suspended in the state of lively bliss that comes from fascination.
Another important (well, relatively important) thing that happened concerned two rubber bands. They were linked together. Philip said I could keep them. I spent several minutes agonizing over them, trying to unlink them. Finally, Philip revealed his secret: it was impossible to unlink the rubber bands, they were "made together." He said he had sixty of them because he worked in a magic shop.
Wait, this is the last journal we're going to get published?! If I had known that before, I would have written something profound, something deep, something touching! Something that could coax the tears from a grown-up's eyes...
All I have to say is, I had an amazing experience at Project Write, and I'll miss everyone and everything except those blasted rubber bands.
