A psychologist, a general, and a government official are tasked with reducing underage crime in a sample population put under their authority. Whoever drops it the most in a year, wins. After the year is done, they have a meeting to discuss their results.
The psychologist starts: “We lowered underage crime by over 20% in the last year, mostly by introducing counseling courses, and social assistance programs.”
The General goes: “Crime is down by over 30%. Turns out, strict discipline and a one-strike rule can greatly affect people’s habits.”>
The official goes last: “We reduced it to practically zero.”
The other two are rather puzzled at this: “To zero, in just a year?”
“Oh no, it only took us a few days. We just set the age of adulthood to 1 week old.”
