Agreed. And they get time off work, "pity poor me" excuses & some handy dandy drugs.
It's pathetic.
There are depressions caused by chemical imbalances in the brain but I believe that some of "blues" that many people get are learned behaviour. I've seen kids mimic other kids' behaviour and physical gestures/idiosyncrasies to the point of insanity...heheh, at least it looked insane to me. In the same manner, one kid's mood sometimes affects the mood of another kid they are playing with. The one "catching" the mood is likely too empathetic for their own good and were sucked in (subconsciously). I'm sure that depressed people sometimes depress those who live in the same home with them. When I was little one of my grandmothers seemed to carry her own atmosphere around with her. You could feel the air get thicker in her presence, the light seemed dimmer and it felt like there was a weight pushing down on you. It was very strange. It was unsettling, sad. If drugs could fix that I would be all for it.

That's too close to "Cybernana," which seems really disturbing.

what the....?
that is your argument/answer?
btw humans DID NOT evolve from monkeys. do a little studying before proclaiming yourself as knowledgeable. Humans are bipedal primates evolved from a branch of the species known as Apes (not monkeys, know the difference?).
I'd love if you'd clarify your quote above!
