    Nobody likes war and Joseph Heller is no exception. In 1961 he published an antiwar novel entitled
Catch-22. The book is about a soldier who hated war and didn't want to do military service. To prevent
soldiers from quitting, the military has a rule which states that you can only get out of the military
if you're crazy. However, they also have a rule (number 22) which says that if you hate war, you're not
crazy, so you can't get out. In other words, it's no use trying to leave the military because you just
can't win.
    Since that novel was published, the t.mp3 catch-22 has come to be used to express a no-win situation.
