Voodoo Economics

A magical purple bunny rabbit approached me last night and asked for my help.

"I'm starting a commodities market for fictional characters. Do you know any?" the bunny asked.

"I'm a fictional character!" I declared proudly. I was lying, of course, which kind of made it a true statement.

"Could you please help me then?" he asked.


Poll #1012515 Please judge the worth (in Zorkmids) of each commodity or currency:

Energon Cubes (The Transformers)

Chaos Emeralds (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Frequent Flyer Miles (American Airlines)

Sex Packets (Digital Underground)

Protoculture (Robotech)

FISA Points (Experian, et. al.)

The Locknar (Heavy Metal)

Zorkmids (Infocom)

Zorkmids (NetHack)

Feedback Score (eBay)

Melange/Spice (Dune)

Zog Dollars (http://merovingian.livejournal.com/210161.html)

Whuffie (Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom)

Kittens (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Slack (Chez Geek)



All answers will be adjusted for unit type and averaged, to be posted later. Poll closes next week or something. Absurd answers, or answers that cannot be translated into a linear Zorkmid worth, will be discarded pleasantly. Questions, discussions of missing currency, disputes about Whuffie, and other debates in comments, please.

"This doesn't sound like it will be really profitable," I said.

"Oh, it won't," the bunny replied, "It will be pretend profitable!"
