"The game of Chicken, also known as the Hawk-Dove or Snowdrift game, is an influential model of conflict for two players in game theory. The principle of the game is that while each player prefers not to yield to the other, the outcome where neither player yields is the worst possible one for both players."- Wikipedia
"Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, "We have seen the Lord." But he said to them, "Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe." (Read it in context: John 20:19-31)
Oh, that St. Thomas. He was a cheeky one. Not going to believe the apostles saw Christ risen...wants gory proof...what a fool he is, I think, half smiling, not acknowledging the limp part of my face that refuses to gloat because it masks the side of my brain that knows that I have my Thomas moments too, over and over again. I'm Thomas sometimes, and other times I'm Peter, jumping out of the boat to greet the risen Christ standing on the shore, forgetting that I am such a horrible swimmer. Peter and Thomas, two complete opposites locked together in one mind, that's my Catholic faith. I don't know if I'll ever figure it all out, and I'm sure I'm not meant to.
