TRADING CARDS? YEAH, BATTLE BUG BOTS! I JUST GOT THE SPECIAL, LIMITED-EDITION ARACHNOFRAG CARD. IT'S WORTH OVER A HUNDRED DOLLARS.  IT'S JUST A TRADING CARD. IT DOESN'T REALLY HAVE ANY MORE OR LESS VALUE THAN ANY OF THE OTHER CARDS. SURE IT DOES! IT'S REALLY RARE.  BUT THE RARITY IS ENTIRELY ARTIFICIAL. THE COMPANY THAT MAKES THEM COULD PRINT UP A THOUSAND MORE TOMORROW. THE ONLY REASON THEY'RE WORTH ANYTHING AT ALL IS BECAUSE OF YOUR DISTORTED PERCEPTION OF THEIR VALUE.   THEY'RE JUST PIECES OF PAPER WITH INK ON THEM! LIKE STOCK CERTIFICATES OR $20 BILLS? EXACTLY! WAIT, WHAT? NOTHING.
