There was a group of scientists in a mountainous area, and they employed a little boy to be their guide because he knew where an eagle’s nest was. They found the nest at the bottom of a crag on the side of the mountain and saw there were several eggs in it. Those scientists really wanted one of those eggs, so they said to the little boy, "Would you let us lower you on a rope in a basket and you get one of those eggs since you weigh less than any of us?" He wouldn’t do it., and they said, "How much would it take?" He said, "I won’t charge you anything if you’ll let my daddy hold the rope."
