Going insane

Many times I feel like I am going insane.  Life doesn’t make sense.  But that is neither here nor there.

The word of the day is stultify.

“To stultify formerly meant to declare to be insane. Bouvier’s [Law Dictionary, 1839] says, ‘It is a general rule in English law that a man shall not be permitted to stultify himself – that is, he shall not be allowed to plead his insanity to avoid a contract.” – Eliezer Edward’s Words, Facts, and Phrases 1882*

But at least I know that if I ever needed to stultify, I know my friends will happily do it for me.
