Hi. I’m not the person who asked the original question, but I loved the question and have some confusion over the answer. The example given in the answer was being in Hawaii is preferred over being in prison but both are 50/50. How does this reconcile with “there is not better than here” which I have heard so many times? If I was in prison I sure would be in a hurry to get to Hawaii! I’d prefer that 50/50 much better. Same with everything. If I weigh 200 and want to weigh 125 a lot of it is because 125 is lots better. And I know that’s true because I used to weigh 125 and it was better. Still 50/50 but 100% better. Thanks!
