A party of business executives was travelling by train to London. They were joined by a stranger who claimed to be a mind-reader. Til bet anybody here £100 that I can tell him what he is thinking about,' announced the stranger.
'Ill take that bet,' said one of the executives.
The mind-reader gazed at him intently for several minutes and then said, 'You are thinking of going to the City, buying £100,000 worth of industrial machinery, then going home, declaring yourself bankrupt and settling with your creditors at lOp on the pound.'
The businessman said nothing, but reached into his pocket, drew out his wallet, and handed over £100.
'Then I read your mind correctly?' said the mind-reader.
'No, you didn't,' said the businessman. 'But the idea is worth £100.'
