Imagine if gary kasparov was, playing with a computer that is x2 on gary kasparov's level, and suddenly you creat a way of beating that computer and solved everything perfect for your strategy, and its probably is the best strategy in the world, and you show gary kasparov and for him to win the championship vs the superior computer, and gary wins 2 million after your help on beating that computer, would you want 50% of the won money or demand atleast 50000 or . . . For ur contribution?
That is a very realistic and down to earth scenario.
Huuh. That's stupid.
Imagine if an elf stored gold in a tree. You travel to the Amazon to eat a sandwich. On the ground, next to an oompa loompa resting by your feet, you find a map showing you where the elf stores gold. Do you eat the pickle that came with your sandwich?
What kind of sandwich are we talking about?
I'm one of the three fluent oompaloompese speakers.
It's hummus and cucumber sandwich.
oompa loompas live in africa.
You have to imagine that the Amazon is in Africa.
The Amazon is kind of like the Nile, only sideways.
Would a hummus and cucumber sandwich come with a pickle? That seems kind of redundant - isn't a pickle just a special type of cucumber? That'd be like getting french fries and mashed potatoes in the same meal. Please try to make your scenario more believable if you want people to take this seriously!
You have to imagine that it's not sideways.
Pickles are better than cucumbers.
You have to imagine that potatoes were not discovered yet.
Elfs don't hoard gold, idiot. They're too flighty.
The Mississippi is also kind of like the Nile, only it flows North-South, so it just won't do.
Y'all have to imagine that people have the ability to imagine things.
