Given a choice between two sealed envelopes, one of which contains twice as much money as the other (and in any case some), you don’t know which contains the larger sum and so choose one at random. You are then given the option of taking the other envelope instead. Is it rational to do so? Surely not, but a specious line of reasoning suggests otherwise.
