What if someone were to ask you, “Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich?” Personally, it would depend on how hungry I am. It would appear to most people that eternal happiness would be the more desirable of the two. Not so fast. After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing. Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness. Again, somewhat silly, but it makes a point.
