What do you reckon is the monetary value of a life?


As a starting point, lifetime earnings should average out somewhere over £1m in todays money under reasonable assumptions, so that gives us a lower bound.

Those things might make you worry less about it, and it's the fear that's the most dangerous thing at the moment.

I want the United States Government to take every Instagram and snapchat thot, I mean model, and send them to me during the crisis. Also I want enough marijuana to last me a whole year assuming i smoke a joint once every four hours. Also I wanna be able to quarantine with my ten closest friends. And keep my parents in their house. Do that, and I wont go outside for a year.
