The Legend Trap

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Three teenagers step into a booth.

It’s the oldest story in the world. Some dumb kid always wants to put it to the test. “It” could be any number of things. Jumping when the d-mat process starts to see if it makes you taller. Spinning in a circle anticlockwise in the hope of being switched from left to right. Squeezing thirteen people in at once just in case the one with the guiltiest secret disappears.
