16. And you could get out if you were crazy,
But the crazy ones didn't want to get out -- they didn't care if they lived or died. If you wanted to get out because you wanted save your ass, you were sane, and had to continue serving.

It's one of the few books I've read multiple times, I loved it.

Saw the movie after I'd read the book a couple of times, and I have to say though it was different, I liked it too. Was surprised the movie managed to capture the surrealism of the book so well. I wouldn't have bet it was possible. Alan Arkin made a great Yossarian. The casting was inspired.

Mr. Nownow and I always pat each other patronizingly and murmur "there, there" when one of us is caught up in one of 'those' moments.
