What is your definition of "well-adjusted"? The word implies an objective
goal to which one would "adjust". Depending on one's criteria, a
well-adjusted person might bully and molest. Saddam seems to have adjusted
Uday and Qusay to do that.

It is difficult for me to see how the happiness of tsunami victims on the
other side of the planet sharing few of my genes would affect my happiness
in an evolutionary sense.
