Now with more Sarah.
This is from the days of me being a game development student. I was working diligently on our final term project as a team leader, responsible for four other people who were working on art asset creation. While testing our latest build, fairly close to deadline, I noticed that none of the models from one of the artists had been committed. I asked him about this, and he sort of avoided giving me a direct answer, citing a technical issue with his portable drive. I asked if I could take a look at his drive, and he reluctantly allowed it. Not only did I find almost no assets usable in our game, but I found something else altogether unsettling. The most recently modified files on the drive (by a long shot) was an iterative series of a 3D model of Sarah Palin. ...I only wish I had kept the models.
