Why do people do silly things?


I went to the vampire store and let them take my life’s blood today. This provided me with an opportunity to watch T.V., something I do not do very much. As it turns out, the procedure I endured takes a lot longer then normal, about 2 hours.
I watched Pawn Stars. This program has everything that reality T.V. craves; middle aged stars whose children play a significant role, money, desperate people and conflict.
I think I watched 3 episodes of that program. It seems people take various things to this pawn shop to get cash. Most of the merchandise they show is unique and interesting. Yet, I could not understand why they were taking things like a WWII mine training set, or a beat up old Buick to a place like that. In almost every case where a deal was made, the customer took less than one-third of their asking price.
Now I understand why the pawn shop offers such low prices, they have to resell the item at a profit. But why would somebody sell something at such a devalued price? Are they so desperate that they give valuable things away, or so silly as to not know the worth of their possessions? 
I dunno, but I should think that with a little research they could find a better deal through Craigslist or even Antiques Road show.
As someone who has very little material items, I just don’t understand how anyone could be so stupid as to let themselves get cheated out of their possessions. 
Just sayin’.
