Nobody's perfect.

I once spent 41 days in a jail cell in Japan so this index really hits home. All I did was overstay my visa with a valid USA passport and they locked me up for 41 days, fed my rice and veggies, let me use the hot tub every 3 days and then put me on an airplane in handcuffs, back to the Promised Land of USA......never never overstay your visa, fellow travellers, especially in Japan, which is a semi police state....

Stanley Milgram would approve.

i think C (guards) should be half in half out of the done something wrong circle. my gf's dad is a prison guard and it's pretty much what he wanted to be.

The D subset (inmates) should likewise overlap the B subset. Not all inmates are rightfully incarcerated.

Paul said...

They've still all done something wrong. "Something" doesn't mean anything illegal. Hence the title "Nobody's perfect."

Josh Fuller said...

Right, Paul. My only correction would be that B be larger than A.

BJ said...

While your suggestions might lead to more accuracy, some of you are missing the point -- the humor and insight of Jessica's diagrams.

All of the changes suggested in the comments would make this diagram "worse," even if it became (technically speaking) more "accurate."

This is why committees should never be involved in an artistic process.

devBear said...

Agree with Josh... B is definitely bigger than A. And BJ, I think that would still be as funny ironic as Jessica's original. Although I agree art is not a committee thing

Paul said...

B being smaller than A just indicates that there are things in prison besides people (all that lovely furnature, walls and bars, etc), so I wouldn't say it's innacurate. Since prison is the largest scope involved it doesn't suggest a lack of people outside of it who've done things wrong.

Maybe D could be an oval that extends out of A and have a little E(scapees).

This was a good one.
