If you have ever VOLUNTARILY entered a mental hospital and
your doctor decides to commit you, you become a
RESTRICTED PERSON. Which e.g. if you are a graduate student,
means that you are TOTALLY fucked because you are no longer allowed
to work on a range of research projects funded by the us govt.
Ergo, no funding. Ergo, goodbye and have a nice life.

Shove it harder up my ass -- I'm not quite feeling it yet.
Harder -- harder -- oh yeah. Make it bleed. Oh yeah.
