It varies form state to state, but most states have a law that allows a judge to require someone to be institutionalised for mental health care.

Ah - I'm remembering now. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Don't know what state that was set in, nor whether it was typical of US mental health treatment in the 1960s/70s. Hope not - with the sole exception of the need to deal with the T-monster somehow....

One of the reasons for the film (and novel) was to highlight that mental health care was not all it seemed in some institutions. It wasn't like that everywhere, but the system was rife with abuse.

I worry that Cleese lacks the ability to play tragi-comic characters :wink:

Looks like the Trumpfool is at least looking after some - he's just bought in '300 burgers' to stuff the faces of a gang of - presumably - his own fans....

According to one source the current price of a big mac is $3.57, so that'll have set the Trumpery purse back the princely sum of .... $1,071.00 (with fries and milkshakes, I suppose it'll have come to a bit more...)

So - if he's in the money to that extent, how about paying the wages, out of his own pocket, of every single one of those unfortunate - and innocent - USA workers who are currently not being paid due to the government shutdown? What about it, Drumpfie?

Well, clearly both you and the Drumphf have the advantage over me regarding this sphere of knowledge. Oh and before you ask - I have sampled Mr Ronald M's product. Twice in my life, as I recall - the last time being nearly 40 years ago. I didn't enjoy it much. I concede that much may have changed in the interim.

Do they ask you to give a name, and then bawl it out when your order's ready - like they do in Sta**ucks - and Argos? Might be amusing to hear the waiter call out "Macdonalds for Donald!". Actually, if I'm ever in Starbucks again, I'm tempted to give my name as, say, "Latte" - so that I can hear them call "Latte for Latte..."

As to Drumpfhf's eating habits - is it true that he subsists entirely on burgers? If so why isn't he dead?

I suspect that the likelihood that Trump ultimately pays this out of his own pocket is remote. He uses his own hotels and golf/country clubs for travel with his entourage and the USA picks up the tab. He will be massivlly more wealthy at the end of his term than the beginning.

Not without reason is McDonald's the greatest restaurant chain in the world, +1!

I eat there regularly, often service is real quick, just a shame the chips are usually lukewarm :wink:

I didn't think they served chips!

These are chips (with a bit of fish thrown in):

These are "fries" (or whatever name you care to give 'em):

Pommes (German) = chips
