Rfv-sense, someone has defined sanity as "ability to get what you want without doing things that will ultimately get you more of what you don’t want." This seems rather odd and I would like to know the source of it. It seems overly specific and almost circumstantial. Dictabeard 16:23, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Added in this edit by a contrib who only made this one edit. I recommend delete. -- ALGRIF talk 16:52, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Delete, barely comprehensible, I only worked it out the third time I read it. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:37, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Good catch. It looks to me like a flippant "witty" definition redundant to sense 2. {{rfd-redundant}} is the ideal template for this, IMHO. Much of the verification that would apply to sense 2 would apply to this sense. Let's treat it as an RfD. Delete. DCDuring TALK 18:49, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
