Say, hypothetically, that you had just been forwarded an email with information about your high school reunion.  Say further that the email had been forwarded about 23 times before it reached you.  Say that the person who forwarded it to you was your MOTHER, who was apparently cooler than you when you were in high school even though she was not, technically, a member of your high school class, yet somehow she mysteriously made it onto the list of people to forward it to and you did not.

Hypothetically, if these things were true, how much would you pay to go to such an event?  If it had an open bar?  Or would you pay to not go?
