A man had just moved into a new city and decided to try a local barber shop...the first morning he could, he went to the barber and got his hair cut...like all barber shops, there was much gossip, jokes, and stories to tell, and right before he left the barber pulled the man aside and whispered to him, "See that boy over there? He's the stupidest lad there ever was....watch!"
The barber went up to the boy and put out his hands. "Now young lad," he boomed so everyone could hear, "in my right hand I have a dollar and in my left I have 2 quarters...now which would you rather have?" "Well the 2 quarters, of course!" replied the lad. Everyone in the barber shop laughed at the boy's apparent stupidity, but the man was intrigued and decided to follow the boy out of the barber shop.
As he followed, he watched the boy buy a 50 cent ice cream cone and sit done at a nearby park bench...the man caught up to him and asked, "Boy, don't you know a dollar is worth more than 50 cents?" The boy looked at him and replied, "As soon as I take the dollar, the game is over..."
And the moral of the story is...why kill the planet or trade ports when you can just keep raiding the trade ships?
