  • 00:08:56.321 --> 00:08:58.056
  • every day for 30 days?So, I asked Graham last night --
  • 00:08:58.056 --> 00:08:58.890
  • So, I asked Graham last night --You just know that
  • 00:08:58.890 --> 00:09:00.892
  • You just know thatbecause it obviously is
  • 00:09:00.892 --> 00:09:02.093
  • because it obviously isconnected to the illustration
  • 00:09:02.093 --> 00:09:03.528
  • connected to the illustration'cause I said a penny.
  • 00:09:03.528 --> 00:09:04.629
  • 'cause I said a penny.But Graham is 12.
  • 00:09:04.629 --> 00:09:07.232
  • But Graham is 12.So, I asked him the question.
  • 00:09:07.232 --> 00:09:08.767
  • So, I asked him the question.He thought for a minute,
  • 00:09:08.767 --> 00:09:10.235
  • He thought for a minute,and first thing he said,
  • 00:09:10.235 --> 00:09:11.002
  • and first thing he said,"Is this a real offer
  • 00:09:11.002 --> 00:09:11.903
  • "Is this a real offeror is this hypothetical?"
  • 00:09:11.903 --> 00:09:13.805
  • or is this hypothetical?"[Laughter]
  • 00:09:13.805 --> 00:09:14.806
  • [Laughter]"Because how much do I need
  • 00:09:14.806 --> 00:09:15.774
  • "Because how much do I needto think about this?"
  • 00:09:15.774 --> 00:09:17.442
  • to think about this?"[Laughter]
  • 00:09:17.442 --> 00:09:18.143
  • [Laughter]Put it on calculator.

  • Put it on calculator.Put it on calculator.
  • 00:09:19.511 --> 00:09:21.212
  • Put it on calculator.So, if we do it,
  • 00:09:21.212 --> 00:09:23.582
  • So, if we do it,and you can probably imagine
  • 00:09:23.582 --> 00:09:26.685
  • and you can probably imaginethe first day that we double it,
  • 00:09:26.685 --> 00:09:29.020
  • the first day that we double it,it's still not gonna be much.
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:30.522

  • 00:09:30.522 --> 00:09:31.990
