Power

Ever hear the quote "Money is power?" It's true. Sure it's nice to have a magical scepter that can summon woodland creatures to your aid, but if you haven't got one of those, money is where it's at. If you pay someone enough, you can convince them to lick a frozen flagpole, even when they know their tongue's going to stick to it. If that isn't power, we don't know what is.
