Too Many Choices Makes Me Crazy

I must share this with my friends; this video is excellent, even better than excellent, because it tells me why sometimes I am unhappy.

I have two hammocks on my Hotel Balcony, the choice is simple, and I am happier.

I am studying a paradox of my own, I have lived in about 700 hotel rooms in my last 12 years of travel, and there is one premise that is false.
"The more you pay, the better the room." or maybe said,
"You get what you pay for."

The reason is this, a Hotel owner does not enter all the Hotels, truthfully, they have no idea the quality of the Hotel next door, they prices rooms according to what they feel is correct. A person who is from the USA will price the same room 10 times more than a local, there is almost an irrelevant relation between price and quality.

There is a placebo effect on rooms though, and I am not sure it is possible to explain this away, the person who pays the most, generally feels they were in great room. Hotels are like this, the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing, or the Hotel on the left, does not know what the Hotel on the right is doing.
