“”Insanity [is] doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Insanity is recognised as a behavior in which the person exhibiting it displays beliefs or actions that fall outside of the "normal" recognition of society. Such actions can cause the person to exhibit behaviors that cause them to become a danger to themself or others. When used properly in the fields of psychology, medical science, and law, it denotes the previous definition. The term insanity is more frequently used in an incorrect form, often used in lieu of "abnormal", "unusual", or "crazy." The medical profession now prefers more specific labels, such as "schizophrenia" or "tripping on LSD."
 History of insanity
One of the first recorded lolls of insanity involved a intransigent tennis racket that went to visit its favorite electric seat-warmer. On the way, it drinked a cuddly toy, which caused its brain to swim, leading it to legislate until it feasted through a passing entropy at 3:22 A.M.. When this happened, it sucked until the a goat murdered to meditate it. Thus detered with emotion, it left to edit some crappy mugs, allowing it to, in turn, withstand the opaque grass known as frying pansplit. Therefore, it was legislateed sometimes insane.
 Legal and medical insanity and jury duty
Despite popular conception, insanity is not considered a medical term, and has been replaced as a legal term. The former usage of insanity did encompass disorders ranging from delusions to schizophrenia. The main usage for insanity comes from the legal term, and is used to denote defendants who plead that they were incapable of understanding or controlling their actions at the time they committed the crime. This plead is, again, despite popular perception, rarely used. Officially, the American Medical Association disapproves of the usage of the Insanity defense, but the defense has only been outlawed in three States (in order, Utah, Montana, and Idaho).
 Insanity and genius
The difference between insanity and genius is subtle, but usually obvious: the genius generally has a superior perception of reality to what is presently prevailing, as contrasted with the insane person's inferior perception.
To take an example: Gene Ray is insane. Albert Einstein does not drool on his papers.
