overthinking student

how about a song that represents each oc!

I think I maybe did this before for Gang 1 & 2, but I’m going to redo it cause it gives me the chance to look at music (and Gang 3)!

Possible future career?? Become a combination of Terry Deary & Martin Brown (along with Peter Hepplewhite, Neil Tongue, Mike Phillips & Phillip Reeve), create something historically accurate yet fun. Better than writing bad historical smut, becoming a curator or living in an archive. Now to better myself in writing and drawing for the next couple of years in my life….

This is what I think about at 1am

Also one of the few people I know who READ THE BOOKS before the whole television shenanigan (I miss primary just solely for the books & games)


One of my many jobs is to help out with an online course in microeconomic theory. This course utilizes online problem sets created by the textbook publisher, and one of the sets includes the question you see above.

(Dear Internet: Is it prisoners’ or prisoner’s? I argue the latter since it’s a noncooperative game, though I might be overthinking this.)

Anyway, some students objected to the grading of this question on the grounds that the prisoner’s dilemma narrative starts with the observation that two people commit a crime. I…wasn’t sure how to respond to this, since I guess they’re not wrong? I suppose one could argue that the prisoner’s dilemma applies to a number of different contexts of strategic interaction, in which case breaking the law is not a literal prerequisite. Or…one could argue I could just show them this comic.
