    THIS IS A FRIGHTENING STATISTIC, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST WORRISOME IN RECENT YEARS.

    25% of amateur radio operators (hams) in this country are on medication for mental illness.

    That's scary.

    That means 75% are running around untreated.

    I hafta move to Colorado or Washington to get the TREATMENT for my Disease.
    The seemingly INCURABLE "LAKANUKI" Hawaiian disease!
    The treatment material is only available in those 2 states
    Washington has too many HOBO SPIDERS
    Colorado gets too much SNOW!

    So it will be awhile..........

    One day an amateur radio operator's wife asked him to go to the store and buy a gallon of milk:

    Wife: And if they have eggs buy a dozen.

    Ham: Ok

    .......................................................

    An hour later the amateur radio operator arrives home with twelve gallons of milk.

    Wife: Why did you buy all that of milk!?

    Ham: They had eggs.

    Awww...Pat, Pahrump, NV is not overly far and the celibate wife would think you went to a northern California thing.
    There is the matter of money though......
    Have fun and there are always answers, they just may not be the correct answers:rolleyes:.......
    BTW...where did I put that prescription?

    he was just following her EXPLICIT DIRECTIONS!!!

    The Ham was Correct. The Wife now has to figure what to do with 12 gallons of milk because her directions were not SPECIFIC enough. Maybe she can put it out in bowls and feed all the neighbor cats!

    Wonder what the number for the general...er...non-ham population is? Could be that that number for hams is LOWER than that?

    Especially because some "syndromes" that used to be simply personality quirks (thinking bi-polar here, but I'm pretty sure there are others) are now categorized as "diseases" so the pharmas can sell prescription meds for them.

    One might say that 25% of hams suffer with insanity... The other 75% enjoy every second of it...

    Or more than likely self medicated on something, even more scary.

    I have wondered if the divorce rate among hams is higher than the national average. Just curious.

    That is about what is for the whole country, although women are in the range of 30%.
    Given how screwed up today's society is, I'm surprised it's not closer to 75%.
    Give the AMA APA and Big Pharma time and everyone will be on psych meds.
