Please do not confuse brain damage with mental illness, they are two totally separate conditions. A brain damaged person may suffer from a mental illness and someone with mental illness may have brain damage but they are not the same thing and a person may have just one of the two conditions without ever developing the other. Here endeth today's medical lesson. ;)

Chickens in a coop suffer mental illness, too... it's what comes from piling people (or chickens) atop one another.

Cheer up G-CPTN! Look on the bright side... At least you aren't American or a dull Brit.

With respect to Bugg who is American and clearly is a nice guy! :ok:

With respect Bugg, here is a bug who did suffer from depression. Don Marquis' Archie... I don't think he was brain damaged, just depressed! :)

(Basically a typical PPRuNer)...

THEY ARE THE MOST UNLIKELY OF FRIENDS: Archy is a cockroach with the soul of a poet, and Mehitabel is an alley cat with a celebrated past -- she claims she was Cleopatra in a previous life. Together, cockroach and cat are the foundation of one of the most engaging collections of light poetry to come out of the twentieth century.

"expression is the need of my soul," declares Archy, who labored as a free-verse poet in an earlier incarnation. At night, alone, he dives furiously on the keys of Don Marquis' typewriter to describe a cockroach's view of the world, rich with cynicism and humor. It's difficult enough to operate the typewriter's return bar to get a fresh line of paper; all of Archy's dispatches are written lowercase, and without punctuation, because he is unable to hit both shift and letter keys to produce a capital letter.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

No every square foot of the moon basks in sunshine during its day and shivers in darkness during its night,same as the Erf does though its day being about 14 of our days long and its night likewise,Mr Moon rotates on his axis once during each orbit of the Earth thus showing both his face and arse to Mr Sun.
Ergo it has no Darkside as such

Dammit! I always thought that only one side of the Moon
ever faced the Sun.
Perpetual sunshine or perpetual freezing darkness on the
other side.

The Moon does not have a darkside.

Oh yes it does, just like the Earth has a dark (night) and light (day) sides. It's the side that isn't currently facing the sun. Just the darkside varies according to the time of the Lunar day.

Mr Draper is right. There is more of a far side of the moon than a dark side.

The far side gets sunlight around 50% of the time and that taken with the fact that 40% of Europeans are drain damaged just goes to show that you can prove anything with stats...

there is a very simple way to demostrate this at parties and other such venues where increadably ill informed ale fuddled people are to be found who believe the moon has a darkside
Someone stands in the middle of the room, he is the Earth, someone else stands agin the wall,looking at Mr Earth, he or indeed she is the Sun, you stand a few feet away from the bloke in the middle of the room (Earth)facing him(you are the Moon),now you shuffle sideways around him always keeping yer face toward him doing a complete circle,he will have seen nowt but your frontside,the chap or chapess on the other hand who is again agin the wall(the Sun will have observed all sides of you as you did your shuffling orbit of Mr Earth,ergo had the agin the wall chap been a thermonuclear furnace all sides of you would have been bathed in his radiation glow.
I say again, the Moon does not have a Darkside.:=

Brain Damage
(Waters)

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

"I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvelous! HaHaHa!"
