Walking everywhere blindfolded?
Reverse Gravity? (How would we urinate?)

Yes to absolutely all of these, but not any that I had in mind

Thise route to insanity, does it involve...
A job?
A sport?
A hobby?
A something off the news? Yesish
A political move?
A philosophy?
A tactic/miltary move?
An actual road? Yes
A place called Insanity? Yesish
Actual mental insanity?

You've made good progress (to insanity) I'd say :-)

Situation: You saw/heard something on the news that made you think that "this was a sure route to insanity" ?

That something was...
Talk about an area? With soldiers? A road to a place that is called Insanity? Is the town name in a different language? Is the name close to insanity? Something a bit different? Like lobotomy?

I think I may know this one... if not, maybe I'll post my theory later.

For now (to see if I'm on the right track, um, road :-)):

Is the road name the odd thing we're looking for?

Is it a "sure route" or a "shore route". i.e. a road along the coast?

Ok... this street/road...
Was it in fact a road? Or a path? Paved? Unpaved? Brick? Cobblestone? Was it more like a driveway? An entrance? A plaza? A parking lot?
Something other than a road but could be driven on? walked on?
A monument? A tunnel? A cloverleaf entrance/exit to a highway that was so complicated that people gave up and built a hot dog stand on the side of the freeway rather than try and find their way home?

I think I saw a cartoon like that once...
