    Default Mental Hospital Release Exam


    There must be no barriers to freedom of inquiry … There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors.

    You passed!
    Faith is the surrender of reason,
    Reason is what separates us from other mammals
    Of all the supposed virtues
    Faith is the most overrated

    I didn't get number four. But there's another answer to number two, possibly.

    5 + 5 + 5 ≠ 550
    "He was asking me a theoretical...and I talked about it only from that standpoint. And that was done, he said, you know, I guess it was theoretically, but he was asking me a rhetorical question, and I gave an answer. And by the way, people thought from an academic standpoint, and asked rhetorically, people said that answer was an unbelievable academic answer. But of course not, and I said that afterwards.

    Well done, that's brilliant.

    On Number four you use the form itself and one side of the box for the answer as one piece of the rectangle, that way you have to only use three lines to create the rectangle... The do not equal sign is for number 2. The other two it looks like you got right. I'm sure they'd accept something that seemed logical like MTWTWTM as well...
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    To whom are you talking? Anyway do you think that arguing with the mental hospital staff about the answers will get you out?

    It would depend on how you argued. Getting angry wouldn't, but showing that your answer was logical using reason likely would. I seriously doubt this is actually a release "test" for a mental hospital though. Some extremely intelligent people could easily "pass" this, but that wouldn't change that they may be homicidal or suicidal.
