Daniel Goldstein: The battle between your present and future self

Do you remember the story of Odysseus and the Sirens from high school or junior high school? There ____ this hero, Odysseus, who'__ heading back home after the Trojan War. And he'__ ________ on the deck of his ship, he'__ _________ to his first mate, and he'__ __________, "Tomorrow, we ____ ________ past those rocks, and on those rocks ____ some beautiful women called Sirens. And these women ______ an enchanting song, a song so alluring that all sailors who ______ it crash into the rocks and _____." Now you _____ _________, given that, that they _____ ________ an alternate route around the Sirens, but instead Odysseus says, "I ______ to _______ that song. And so what I'___ ________ to do is I'___ __________ to pour wax in the ears of you and all the men -- stay with me -- so that you _____'__ hear the song, and then I'___ __________ to have you tie me to the mast so that I ____ _________ and we can all sail by unaffected." So this is a captain putting the life of every single person on the ship at risk so that he can hear a song.

And I'__ ______ to think if this was the case, they probably would have rehearsed it a few times. Odysseus would have said, "Okay, ____'__ ___ a dry run. You tie me to the mast, and I'___ ________ to beg and plead. And no matter what I ____, you cannot untie me from the mast. All right, so tie me to the mast." And the first mate ________ a rope and ties Odysseus to the mast in a nice knot. And Odysseus ______ his best job playacting and says, "Untie me. Untie me. I want to hear that song. Untie me." And the first mate wisely ________ and ________'__ untie Odysseus. And then Odysseus says, "I see that you can _____ it. All right, untie me now and we'__ _____ some dinner." And the first mate __________. He's like, "Is this still the rehearsal, or should I untie him?" And the first mate _________, "Well, I _______ at some point the rehearsal has to end." So he unties Odysseus, and Odysseus flips out. He's like, "You're idiot. You're moron. If you _____ that tomorrow, I'___ ___ dead, you'__ ____ dead, and every single one of the men ____ ___ dead. Now just don't untie me no matter what." He throws the first mate to the ground. This ________ itself through the night -- rehearsal, tying to the mast, conning his way out of it, beating the poor first mate up mercilessly. Hilarity ensues.
