Frank, Henry and the Blib Machine
« on: February 18, 2009, 07:46:25 AM »
A person needs to have 4 Blibs each day to survive. A Blib Machine operated by one person can make 20 Blibs/day. A Blib machine lasts 10 days and costs 60 Blibs to get a new one. Frank owns a Blib machine and is approached by Henry who doesn't own one. Henry says he will operate Frank's Blib machine if Frank will allow him to keep some Blibs at the end of each day. What do you think would be a fair ammount of Blibs for Henry to keep each day? If you were Frank how many Blibs would you let Henry keep at the end of each day?

To be Frank, I'd kill Harry and keep them all at the end of the day. Then i would hire an illegal to do the work for 1 blib a day.

Henry should be allowed to keep 10 Blibs each day. This will allow Frank to survive and buy a new Blib machine every ten days, while allowing Henry to keep the fruits of his labour that are not required for Frank's continued survival/ownership of a Blib machine.

If I were Frank and I didn't have a conscience, I would only let Henry keep 4 Blibs per day. This would mean that he could not buy his own Blib machine, and he would keep having to operate mine. Fortunately, I do have a conscience, and would allow him to keep 10 Blibs per day.

Bah! Back in my day, we had to walk to the machine every morning through three feet of snow and only had one blib between the five of us.
