(after Mark Granovetter)
One, someone who will throw a rock
if provoked before a window.
Two, someone who will throw a rock
if somebody else throws one first.
Three, someone who will throw a rock
if the others throw their rocks first.
Four, someone who will loot the store
if the others break the window.
