Etymology : "Crazy" comes from the 1570s, meaning "diseased, sickly mind," from combining "craze" meaning "shatter" + "-y" making an adjective. The meaning changed metaphorically to a sense of "unbelievable or unreal" since the literal term deals with "sick mind" which would cause one not to believe the "crazy" person and for the "crazy" person to not understand simple ideas.
