How much is your life worth?

perl -le '$s=3000; $t+=($s*=1.032)*12 for 30..65; print int($s),"€"; print int($t),"€";'
int($sum),"€";'
9232€
2447289€

2.4mio€ => more than fair price (3000€) for one life of currently 30 years old person living in Austria where inflation rate was 3.2%.

s/3000/$dream_salary/
s/1.032/$inflation_in_your_currency/
s/30/$your_age/

To get the price for your whole life...

Stupid heh? But fun!

Or may be not. Just compare the total sum next time you read that goverment wasted 100mio€ and you will know how many men-lifes they threw away.
