What Are You Worth?


What is your life worth? If you look to the federal government for an answer, get ready to be disappointed.

The EPA reduced the value of a human life, used to determine the cost-effectiveness of regulations, from $8.04 million to $7.22 million. In the spirit of this absurd pseudo-precision, you are now worth 10.199004 percent less than a year ago.

It makes one wonder how they measure such a thing.

But I already know how to measure such a thing.

From one nail scarred hand to the other.
