Are your naïve T-cells more like Martin Riggs or Roger Murtaugh?

Interestingly, Naive T-Cells can be further subdivided into “good cops” and “bad cops” as in Lethal Weapon. The good ones, present in younger, healthier individuals, are naive and ready to go, like Bat-guano crazy Mel Gibson’s Martin Riggs character. The bad ones are like Danny Glover’s character, Roger Murtaugh, hiking up their pants and counting the days to retirement while muttering “I’m too old for this $h!t”
