He is greeted by angels and he asks to see God. Upon meeting with God the man is informed that he will not be staying, that his time on earth is not finished. He is allowed to have a short conversation with God before he has to go back.
Man: Whoa! That star just exploded. It seemed like it was in an instant. How long did that really take to happen?
God: Billions of years.
Man: Well, I guess time up here is different. Like, a million years on earth could be a minute here, or something.
God: You can look at it that way, I suppose. Time is relative. Time really doesn't exist here.
Man: Well, maybe I don't get that part, but if a million years on earth is like a minute here, does the same hold true for money?
God (humoring the ignorant man): Sure, why not. Yeah, my one cent here will be worth a million dollars down there.
Man: Well, since I gotta go back anyway, why don't you give me a penny to take back with me?
God: Tell you what, son, when you get back down there I'll give it to. It will just take me a minute.
