A strange letter comes in the mail. Inside is only a brief note and a map which supposedly will lead you to an Egyptian tomb full of treasure. You make the trip there, find the tomb and then realize the sand storm outside is about to cover it all over again, likely permanently. Even with your shovel you won’t be able to dig your way out of that.
You grab what you can of the treasure. There is one thing left, a gold lamp. What are the chances you grab the lamp and find out it has a genie? Sure it’s kind of fictional but can you really pass it up, are you so completely practical and rational you won’t find a way to take that golden lamp too?
