Go Insane

For those of you haven't done so already, it seems that losing your marbles is one secret to happiness. Take the word of no less a madcap than good ol' Sam Clemens, better known as the uber-whack Mark Twain: "Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination."

Think about it. Were you ever happier than when you first fell in love? And as another philosopher, the sometimes donkey-headed Bottom in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, says: "To say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays."

The newly-in-love may be happy, but they sure-as-shootin' ain't stable!

The same is true of anyone in fits of ecstasy, whether a young one at Disneyland or an old one given a reprieve by the doctors. Ultimately happy is ultimately screwy.

Who was happier than Roger Rabbit at his most manic?

So go nuts. Lose it. Go off the deep end. Lose your marbles. Go insane.

You'll be happier.
