World Bipolar Day -- Happy Birthday, Vincent

Today is Vincent Van Gogh's birthday.  Some people give him a post-mortem diagnosis of bipolar disorder, and take the occasion to declare World Bipolar Day.  Healthcentral.com contributor John McManamy says for him, every day is bipolar day.

As for the world in World Bipolar Day, precisely which world are people talking about?  In my memoir, I note:

Maybe someday, aliens will kindly abduct me and return me to the planet of my birth.

In the meantime, I'm stuck on this one, not a planet of my own choosing, performing my own stunts, learning as I go along.  As I like to joke: We're peanut butter people stuck in a tofu world governed by Vulcans.
