The Value of Human Life calculator

Post by stuphoto »

I found a Canadian Human Life calculator
https://www.cchwebsites.com/content/cal ... Value.html

No wonder they are allowing buildings too big for our fire departments to handle.
If your life is valued at $600,000 and the apartment you just bought is worth $750,000 they just made $150,000 if it burns to the ground tomorrow killing you.

Putting a price tag on life is a valid argument, and I believe insurance companies are in a business of doing that. However, I have no ideas what this has to do with the pricing of real estate.

I grade school we had this kid's insurance, and we all thought what you got for losing a hand was a fortune
I won't try that human calculator, can't put a price on perfection :)

The website started laughing at me. :cry:
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing. Zero cuckery. You and 917 others hate this post.

Honest - I think it was $5000 a hand, $10,000 and eye
Makes you wonder who came up with that Math
Nothing for falling from the top of the monkey bars hitting rungs
I was a bit hopeful
Bet the insurance company never paid a dime " oh, he lost his hand at home, then came to school"
I'm so old everywhere was lawless - not even signs saying " at your own risk"

I know some people who only seem to know sign language using one finger.
Since it's their only form of communication, it should be worth millions :200:
