The Power of Stepping Stones

If your task were to turn a 1c piece into a million dollars in a fixed period of time, most people (myself included) would find this somewhat daunting. However, if you were given (say) $500 and asked to double it into $1,000 this would seem relatively easy. Indeed, you could probably think of quite a few ways of doing it. The same applies to any single step above, e.g. $40 into $80, or even $80,000 into $160,000.

If I asked you "Could you make a million dollars in one year?" you might reply "No way!" But if I say: "Look, how about if I start you off with half a million. Do you think you could turn it into a million?" Your reply might be "I'll give it shot! Give me the money and let's get cracking!" Certainly this task would not seem a 'ridiculous', 'preposterous' or 'stupid' suggestion, would it? You'd have to be a real spineless wimp to say "No thanks. Keep your $500,000 - there's no way of doing that." Right, so this is the task:-

To turn 1c into one million+ dollars.

There are some important rules which must be followed. Think of this as a game with a tasty prize at the end. If you don't want to abide by the rules, don't play the game.

Also, don't ask questions about the rules. The umpire's decision (that's ME) is final!
