    • Thanks. I’ve found it’s quite interesting in general what we instinctively consider to be ‘realistic’ behavior in fictional characters. We tend to hold them to higher standards than most of us ever live up to in reality, and consider them frustratingly stupid when acting like we would ourselves in a similar situation.
