Even lifelong marriages usually end in one spouse surviving the death of the other spouse which is often not a happy ending. The idea in the explanation "which initially could be expected to end happily for everyone involved" is based on the shortsightedness of the sophomoric. 17:51, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

And? There are lots[citation needed] of youtubers, each with a name. Are you implying a direct causation of some kind? Of which manner? 10:27, 22 November 2023 (UTC)
well, game theory is a pretty popular youtuber! and it started 2 months after this comic was released, so im actually implying a causation in a way you probably weren't thinking of. plushie fan (talk) 14:24, 22 November 2023 (UTC)
It's exactly why I asked "Of which manner?", thinking it more somewhat more likely that they pinched from Randall than vice-versa. (But starting from the assumption that both are coincidental and separate distant descents from the original von Neuman and Morganstern workings.) As such, that information is exactly what you might have said originally. Good catch, then, possibly...
I of course must admit I've not heard of/noticed them. But then I don't try to keep up with any youtube channel that's not mainly covering space-tech/exploration or Dwarf Fortress, so "The Algorithm" probably doesn't think it worth popping anything from the noted account up for my attention. 22:52, 22 November 2023 (UTC)
