Reality Cheque

Conversation overheard between Sage and Student:

Sage: “My business, young student, is worth a million bucks”

Student: “But Master, how can that be? The assets are only worth 200 000 in total!”

Sage: “I’m telling you, the business is worth a million.”

Student: “Ok sure… on paper”

Sage: “Do you have your wallet, young Student?”

Student: “Yes” (taking it out his pocket)

Sage: “Do you have a 10 dollar bill?”

Student: “Yip” (taking it out the wallet)

Sage: “How much is it worth”

Student (perplexed): “Well 10 dollars of course”

Sage: “On paper…”
