  • 00:08:46.289 --> 00:08:49.759
  • have a million dollars todayor a penny today
  • 00:08:49.759 --> 00:08:51.494

  • 00:08:55.331 --> 00:08:57.066
  • every day for 30 days?So, I asked Graham last night --
  • 00:08:57.066 --> 00:08:57.900
  • So, I asked Graham last night --You just know that
  • 00:08:57.900 --> 00:08:59.902
  • You just know thatbecause it obviously is
  • 00:08:59.902 --> 00:09:01.103
  • because it obviously isconnected to the illustration
  • 00:09:01.103 --> 00:09:02.538
  • connected to the illustration'cause I said a penny.
  • 00:09:02.538 --> 00:09:03.639
  • 'cause I said a penny.But Graham is 12.
  • 00:09:03.639 --> 00:09:06.242
  • But Graham is 12.So, I asked him the question.
  • 00:09:06.242 --> 00:09:07.777
  • So, I asked him the question.He thought for a minute,
  • 00:09:07.777 --> 00:09:09.245
  • He thought for a minute,and first thing he said,
  • 00:09:09.245 --> 00:09:10.012
  • and first thing he said,"Is this a real offer
  • 00:09:10.012 --> 00:09:10.913
  • "Is this a real offeror is this hypothetical?"
  • 00:09:10.913 --> 00:09:12.815
  • or is this hypothetical?"[Laughter]
  • 00:09:12.815 --> 00:09:13.816
  • [Laughter]"Because how much do I need
  • 00:09:13.816 --> 00:09:14.784
  • "Because how much do I needto think about this?"
  • 00:09:14.784 --> 00:09:16.452
  • to think about this?"[Laughter]
  • 00:09:16.452 --> 00:09:17.153
  • [Laughter]Put it on calculator.
  • 00:09:17.153 --> 00:09:18.521
  • Put it on calculator.Put it on calculator.
  • 00:09:18.521 --> 00:09:20.222
  • Put it on calculator.So, if we do it,
  • 00:09:20.222 --> 00:09:22.592
  • So, if we do it,and you can probably imagine
  • 00:09:22.592 --> 00:09:25.695
  • and you can probably imaginethe first day that we double it,
  • 00:09:25.695 --> 00:09:28.030
  • the first day that we double it,it's still not gonna be much.
  • 00:09:28.030 --> 00:09:29.532

  • 00:09:29.532 --> 00:09:31.000
