"When the cabbage flowers turn yellow, crazies abound."

Have you noticed more crazy people on the street lately? According to Dr. Zhou, that's because every year in March and April, the warmer weather exacerbates mental illnesses, as in, latent schizeophrenics become full-blown ones. There is even a proverb for it, "when the cabbage flowers turn yellow, crazies abound." Cabbage flowers traditonally blossom in early Spring in China.

Umm, come to think of it, the few people I've heard muttering on the street today were not really talking on headsets -- they were actually having imaginary conversations. I've always dreaded April myself, it's a confusing month, when everything is supposed to start but then the promise is often more alluring than the result.
