  1. Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

    Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to
    the bottom and pulled Jim out. When the Head Nurse
    Director became aware of Edna's heroic act, she
    immediately ordered her to be discharged from the
    hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally

    When she went to tell Edna the news, she said,
    "Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good
    news is you're being discharged. Since you were able to
    rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and
    saving the life of another patient, I have concluded
    that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad
    news is that Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself
    in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you
    saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead."

    Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him
    there to dry." "How soon can I go home?"
