Is the man in the moon really a man? Maybe the creature is female, and bald. Didna ever think of that? Well, didja? And what if it's a hermaphrodite?

I gotta friend who claims he can see Jimi Hendrix in the full moon.
I can't see it.
'Course he took advantage of several forms of "reality enhancements" when he was younger.

You would become schizophrenic, often defined as a "splitting off" or fragmentation of personality. Part of your personality would fear others of your kind, part of you would become fearful of yourself and that part might lead to further psychiatric disorders based upon the irreconcilable contradiction that you are what you fear and you fear what you are.

Please note that (a) this is a fantasy answer since that could never happen in our modern mainstream world view, (b) I actually did minor in psychology at UCLA, (c) minoring in something at a university gives you absolutely no credence or credentials in that field, and (d) I like to run with an answer as long as the post is fun!

Along the same lines, if there were unicorns, would there be a unicorn psychiatric disorder where unicorns envy bicorns?

Hehe, I like you. :D And yes, I imagine there would be. I think there would also be a certain form of sociopathy (is that even a real word?) where unicorns feel superior to bicorns.

In the world of associations, men are often assossiated with beef, while women are associated with cats. Could it be that men are bullheaded, and women never pay you attention, unless they want something?

I have noticed that when you walk in the front door of a church, you find yourself standing in the back of the church. The same thing happens with auditoriums.

A few ponderings from a male perspective...

If it only happens to women, then why is it called MENopause?

And it seems to me that maybe it should really be called PERIOD (rather than applying that term to the monthly cycle), since it comes at the end of a long sentence. Or maybe it should be called parole.

On the flip side, why do men get HERnias?

Why is it a pair of underpants and a bra?
