What is sanity?

What is sanity? Is it simply conformity? What is insanity? Non-conformity?

In a word: yes. Or, as they would say in Spain: ¡sí! Lo siento, tío. :partyhat:

Except for physical brain diseases, I think, yes, that sanity is but conformism!
So I'd rather stay here with all the madmen than perish with the sadmen roaming free (db, All The Madmen, 1971)!

I heard once in a dubbed film one of my favourite expressions in Spanish that goes similarly to what HerrFräulein said. Applying to the current case, estás loco, chaval, supéralo.

The film actually said eres blanca, nena, supéralo. Don't know what the original English version was.
