I didn't realize this was for a story idea. I was just making an observation about human nature.
Notice how I used "we" so as not to exclude myself. When I was a teenager, I thought I was James Dean in "Rebel Without A Cause." Then I graduated from high school, had to get a job to ward off starvation, and my illusions of rebelhood quickly vanished. Einstein once wrote that our stomachs makes cowards of us all.
