It's just amazing that BL can be fairly intelligent at times but be unable to grasp the simpliest of concepts at others.  It's fascinating.
He just like to argue.   Especially on Friday.    I've asked him twice, with two different options, why Friday but he won't answer.

Why do I want the $50?
Because it's more valuable than the $25.
Why do I want any amount of cash? It looks like green paper.
It's your analogy.

If playoffs are the biggest factor, why did Trout finish second?

Because "valuable" is defined differently by individuals?

Who said it was the biggest factor?

Why aren't all votes unanimous?

Answer the question. Why do I want pieces of paper with numbers that add up to 50 more than the ones that add up to 25? What does it do for me? It's just paper.

I genuinely don't understand what your asking.

You want to know why $50 is more valuable than $25?

If the opinion around baseball is that Trout is the best overall player in the league (it is, quote below), why else would he not win the MVP?


"But the best overall player? The folks in front offices still can’t believe there’s a debate about this, given Trout’s staggering preeminence in the statistical evaluations they compile. Now, more and more players are agreeing with them, in Trout’s second full year in the big leagues."

To buy stuff
11/15/2013 3:24 PM
OK, so money is a tool I use to get "stuff."  If you offer me differing amount of money so I can get "stuff," if the amounts of money you are offering me doesn't accomplish anything for me, it's not enough to get the "stuff" I need, does the differing amounts of money matter? Does it matter if you're offering me $50 or $25?

If both amounts were being offered to you, would you ever take 25 instead of 50?

Does it matter which one I take, when I have the same fate either way?  I can't get "stuff."
