A Circular Prison

Unreasonable Demands
Unreasonable Demands
Druidic

And Sammy thought: They think I'm smart. But if I act smart they may put unreasonable demands on me. And not just one time, but always. So I'll be smart and act stupid. But if I act stupid they won't realize I'm acting smart and I'll be stigmatized as a dummy not just one... Read more

Rats
