    I think I would have opted for the chicken and saved myself $736,494.

    when you have so much money that that seems like a fair price for fish then maybe you have so much money you no longer understand the value of money.

    Or maybe you just don't understand the value of fish.

    How many hungry kids would that fish feed?


    How much complete nutrition could be provided for how many hungry children with that dollar amount?

    Its thier money.

    They just have so much of it they dont seem to understand the value of wealth.

    It happens to people sometimes when they have so much money they can do anything with it.


    "let them eat cake"

    It is probably feeding quite a few.




    How many kids could your dog feed? How much nutrition could be provided for how many hungry children if you sold your car?
