But You'll Regret It In the Morning - Part 1 of 3
In the first part of this activity, we're going to ask you to make three separate
judgements about whether you would be doing something wrong if you participated
in a joint activity with a friend under some particular set of circumstances. However,
before starting, we need to specify a number of assumptions that you should consider
hold true across the three scenarios to follow.
1. You should assume that the activities depicted in the scenarios are entirely
legal in the jurisdiction in which you reside. So, for example, this will likely
mean responding as if you're over the age of 18 (or even 21), even if you're not.
2. You should assume you have no good reason to suppose that the consequence
of not participating in some particular joint activity will be disastrous
(so, for example, you have no good reason to suppose that there will be a nuclear
war if you don't go to a football game with a friend.)
3. You should assume that we're talking about joint activities that are neither
wholly trivial nor vastly dangerous (the scenarios will feature an example of such
If at any time you need a reminder of the assumptions in play, just click on the

Okay, let's get started.
