Here is a curious fact that seems to call into question one of the fundamental assumptions of Rational Choice Theory: It is an indisputable fact that my granddaughter is cuter than anyone else's granddaughter. Everyone I know thinks that his or her granddaughter is cuter than my granddaughter. This ought to generate a contradiction, but it does not. Both assertions are true.
By the way, now that Athena is six, she has graduated from Candyland and Go Fish to Backgammon. But she is still a shark. I would not recommend getting into a money Backgammon game with her.
