I ran across this the other day, listed as a “list of reasons for admissions to an asylum in the 1800s.” It may or may not be that – not clear why an 1800s asylum would have a 2010s phone number and website listed. (Ah, it’s a real place in West Virginia, supposedly haunted, now a tourist attraction of sorts.) So probably not quite some internet meme from last year.

Reading through the list, it’s quite a varied selection of things to get locked up for.


On review, I find that I could be committed for at least twenty-six reasons on the list, and there are those out there who would probably throw in at least a couple more.

I’ll leave it as an exercise to the student to figure out which twenty-six.
