    • It must be an epigenetic response tied to inherited economic crisis sensitivity genes which modify the brains of vulnerable persons to be upset about being unemployed and potentially starving to death with one’s family. The truly mentally healthy person has a brain adapted to handle this kind of stress by stoically continuing to look for unavailable jobs until one expires from starvation or physical exhaustion.

      In other words, since not EVERYONE commits suicide or becomes otherwise mentally unhealthy as a result of loss of a job, it MUST be that the people who become upset are ill in some way, otherwise, they would find a less upsetting way to either scrabble out an existence selling pencils on the street corner or to quietly expire in some remote place where it won’t cause any upset to the general population.

      Wow, that started out funny but got kind of grim towards the end there!
