Suppose you’re sitting around drinking with a group of friends. You all are starting to feel pretty good. Then, some of the guys get a little drunk. Try to stay as sober as you can. If you’re not too drunk, but the rest of your friends are, try this.
Auction off a dollar bill
Hold up a dollar bill and say, “What do you bid for this brand new one dollar bill?” Make it clear that the highest bidder wins the dollar bill. Also, make it clear that the second and third place bidders still have to honor their bids. Add this in, just to blow their minds. Then, just sit back, relax, and watch the bidding go from pennies to four or five dollars.
You’ll see very quickly how your friends forget the value of the dollar.
