I don't know if it's really common practice, but it is common legend.

Keep in mind that there’s a small chance your typos today might make someone else rich tomorrow…

Yeah...

"Oh, all I needed to do was be happy? *smacks forehead* Man I should've thought about just being happy sooner, that would've saved me a lot of heart-ache! I'll start being happy instantly... and subsequently be in perfect health forever."

Yeah, and the latest crap being fed to people is "how to connect with your emotions"  I've just finished (gods help me but I did) an 8 month certification in helping people to "work" with their feelings. Think:  "How does happy make you feel?" - "uh... Happy???", and you counter "but why?" hey?Huh?Huh?

Anyway, I'm certified and "Happy" that this particular sticky shit is now a part of my CV if nothing else....

I was once shot a "But you could say atheism is a religion" by a psychiatrist. The look of bewildered disbelief (pun intended) I shot them made them shut up and instead choose a different route of enquiry. I'm pretty sure they understood what was about to come their way... But WOW! I thought psychiatrists (not psychologists) were trained on how to deal nicely with people of different belief systems... I was wrong.

Sure I have philosophical, political, and ideological beliefs... just don't call them a religion.

Very wrong. I have met some VERY, VERY wonky, airy fairy, fluffy and plain stupid people in both professions. Which is why I work in the corporate world where I mainly deal with psychopaths. They are easy to understand at least.

Keep in mind that most psyco-pick-your-flavour specialists chose their career path not because they are good with people but because they havent a fucking clue who they are and hoped by studying humanities they could figure it out.
