    ... groups were offered that they could trade their pencil or money respectively for the other option. Interestingly in both groups the majority refused to give up their present! Group 1 preferred their pen more than 5 dollars, group 2 preferred their 5 dollars more than a pen. The gift had become theirs and they didn't want to lose it.

    Another example, but of loss aversion. People who like playing golf would love this. ...

    ... they are in locks the doors at 4 pm and we arrive three minutes late. A stealthy piggyback on someone leaving got us in and we found Alica for our briefing. My, do we have a busy 16 days when we return from Greenland. There are little natural hot pools all over, in addition to the commerical ones like Blue Lagoon.

    ... is famous for its buffet dinners and it is easy to see why. A huge range of Icelandic and international seafood (including whale) and meats, complemented by local vegetables and ingredients. We ate things never tried before and not a clue as to what they were but they were all delicious. This is a meal equal to any we have had on our trip to date.
