Making the Best of Things

I built a fold-out ladder that extended to the Moon. At first, I didn’t think things through timing wise, and I unfolded and climbed the length of the ladder and missed the Moon by nine miles to the right. I made some calculations, and the next day I unfolded and climbed the ladder two hours and two minutes earlier and successfully made it on to the Moon.

I soon felt like an idiot though as I was jumping around in a victory dance and noticed the continuing rotation of the Earth took the ladder away leaving me stranded on the Moon.

I had to wait an entire day for the ladder to return. When it did, there were a couple of thousand people on the ladder wanting to get on the Moon. I snapped into action and charged each person a dollar.
