I’d like you to imagine a scene.
You are second in line at a supermarket cash register. In front of you there is a guy attempting to pay with purple banknotes bearing an image of Raul Julia, and loudly arguing with the person behind the till over whether or not they are legal.
Making no progress, he leans back and asks you to back him up on his argument that they are legally acceptable currency. As inducement to do so, he offers you a large bunch of purple banknotes.
The moral of this story is to never, ever use Pascal’s Wager. If you’re going to bribe me, at the very least do it with real money.
