Linus is a graduate student in the sciences at a major West Coast university. He loves proteins (both eating and solving their structures), Martin Scorsese, Bob Dylan, and the St. Louis Cardinals. He hates false dichotomies, straw man arguments, pants, and Stendhal.
Stendhal is a second-year law student at an East Coast university. He loves Johnny Cash, Shakespeare’s Henriad, Mike Royko and the Chicago Cubs. He hates TV On The Radio, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), arguments that misstate the evidence, and Boston sport fans.
They are both kind of dicks.
