TMD: Hello, you have been chosen
for Weekend's Random Student
Interview. Do you know what that is?
R: I've been chosen for what?
TMD: The Michigan Daily's
Random Student Interview. You're the
Random Student.
R: O.K. What do I have to do?
TMD: I'm going to ask you a bunch
of questions, and you answer them -
randomly, if you'd like.
R: O.K.
TMD: O.K. Cool. So first question.
Do you live in a mansion, apartment,
shack or house?
R: I live in West Quad.
TMD: So which would that be?
R: I guess it's sort of like an apart-
ment. But it's really a dorm.
TMD: Did you play M.A.S.H. when
you were younger?
R: No.
TMD: It's a game where you and
your friends predict your future based
on when you say "stop!" as your friend
is drawing a spiral.

R: What?
TMD: Never mind. My next ques-
tion was, "How closely does your cur-
rent life match up with what M.A.S.H.
may have predicted for you?" But I
don't think I should ask that.
R: No.
TMD: Did you vote for George
R: I didn't vote.
TMD: Why?
R: Because I wasn't old enough.
TMD: Are you old enough now?
R: To vote? Yeah. My 18th birthday
was actually a week after Election Day
in 2000.
TMD: That's not very interesting. I
may cut it. Do you care?
R: No.
TMD: Did you play Nintendo grow-
ing up?
R: Of course.
TMD: Excellent. Then I can ask the
next question I have prepared. Which
was a superior game: Zelda or Contra?
R: Contra. I've always preferred
action games. Up, up, down, down,
left, right, left, right, B, A, select, start.
TMD: Touch. I noticed you said
"select" before start. That means you
were playing with a friend.
R: Or I just played both players.
TMD: Were you that kid?
R: Sometimes, yeah.
TMD: If you don't mind me saying,
that's a bit dorky. Do you have friends
to play video games with now?
R: I don't really play as much any-
more. And no, I don't mind. I was a
TMD: Are you enjoying this inter-
R: I have to shower. I have class.
TMD: Do you use a loofa?
R: A loofa?
TMD: A bath sponge? In the show-
R: Oh. Yeah.
TMD: What class do you have?
R: Econ.
TMD: Can you explain the Nash
Equilibrium to me?
R: We haven't gotten to that yet.
TMD: Can you explain supply and
R: Sort of.
TMD: Explain it. In 10 words.
R: As demand increases, supply
decreases. Vice versa.
TMD: That was only ... Seven
R: I'm doing really well so far.
TMD: In econ or in this interview?
R: In econ.
TMD: I'd say neither. You couldn't
explain the Nash Equilibrium to me,
which means you couldn't answer a
question that was an ecen question
and an interview question.
R: Yeah I guess.
TMD: What's your G.P.A?
R: 4.0.
T-MD: You're a freshman?
R: Yeah. What year are you?
TMD: I'm a ... You're being inter-
viewed. I ask the questions. But any-
way, I think this is enough, so I'll let
you go. Thanks for indulging me.
Good luck with econ.
R: Thanks. Bye.
