1. Say there is a purse worth $100. You got lucky and snagged a like-new one for $20. Now you are in need of money. Is it wrong to sell the purse for more than $20?
1b. What if this person was caught selling it for more than they paid? Are they justified in selling it for whatever price they can get for it?

2. Say you bought this $100 purse for a friend as a gift. It ended up not suiting their needs so they gave it to you "as a gift" because they knew it would better suit your needs. Now you are in need of money. Is it wrong to sell the purse for what you originally paid for it, even though it was technically a gift to you?

3. Say you have a purse that is worth $100 but you got it for $80. It is brown. Somebody else has the exact same purse in black worth $100 and they paid $90. You want the black purse and they want the brown purse. They are exactly the same except for color, are in relatively the same condition, the only difference is that you paid different amounts. Is it fair t o both parties to make a trade so they could have the other color, or is it unfair because they actually paid different amounts?

Disclaimer: No overpriced purses were harmed during the production of these hypotheticals.

4. I understand that the veggie portion of a TV Dinner has very little nutritional value because of the way they prepare it... but how much does it actually have? Is a person getting any veggie benefits if TV Dinners are their only source of veggies? Or would you say the person might as well be eating microwaved cardboard?
