Day 22 Catch 22

June 22, 1933. Germany became a one political party country when Hitler banned parties other than the Nazis. 

The movie Catch 22 is about the insanity of war. It takes place during WWII

According to the Oxford Dictionary, a catch 22 is “a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions”.

Write about a time you were in a catch 22. Or write a fictional piece about a catch 22.

Catch 22

According to Wiki a Catch 22 situation is :

” a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules”

I thought long and hard about this one. The obvious one would be (again inspired by Wiki)

“To apply for a job, you need to gain experience. To gain experience, you need to get a job.”

Another thought sprang to mind  – The athlete who is talented and driven, but has no money. The clubhouse that has plenty of money to spend by no talented athletes.

Can you think of any others?
