Earlier in the semester, I posed a question to my class about whether they would rather have a gallon of water or a "gallon" of diamonds in an attempt to illustrate the water-diamond paradox.

But here's an interesting thing: someone actually offered people a deal very similar to this. Would you rather have a ten ounce bar of pure silver or a king size bar of chocolate? Shockingly, everyone picked the chocolate! Check out the video below:
