Yard Sale

You and your neighbor are holding yard sales on the same day.


Both of you plan to sell the exact same item. You plan to put your item on sale for $100.

The neighbor has informed you that he’s going to put his on sale for $40.┬áThe items are in identical condition.

What do you do, assuming you are not on especially friendly terms with this neighbor?



You are shrunk to the height of a penny and thrown into a blender. Your mass is reduced so that your density is the same as usual. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?

Hint: Read the above again. You’ll find the hint within.

P.S.: Ask questions.
