Nice bodywork, a few scratches and the engine's fucked

Via Vindico—whose body is worth rather more than mine, no doubt because of his tender years, lack of a forty-a-day Marlboro Red habit and absence of borderline alcoholism—I find a little survey that calculates how much my body would be worth on the open market should I drop dead later today...

$3700.00The Cadaver Calculator - Find out how much your body is worth.

That's quite encouraging really: it'll pay for a few bottles of wine at the wake...

borderline? On what data are you basing that? Hopefully not those discredited Doctors ones.

On our stats you like the odd drink. Sounds fair that the pendelum swings the other way.

Vindico said...

Surely you must be worth more. I think my valuation must reflect my lack of any vaguely exciting vices. Must correct that!

Oh, and ta for the recent linkfest. Has driven my site traffic up nicely!!

Not fair, I only got $3140.00 and I only smoke about 5-10 a day. Reefers that is.

Anyway I'm sure if a few lefties clubbed together they would see $3700 as a bargain to see DK on a slab.

Over 5 Grand! (After lying a bit)

Ah so now we find out why our Government wants us all to be be nice and healthy. So it can sell our good looking corpses to the highest bidder.

Fucking hellski, Holly, what are you -- a 17 year old non-smoking teetotal virgin who runs a mile every morning?

Well, right on one count. I don't smoke due to having slightly dodgy lungs. I think I scored highly because, being 20, I was able to put myself on the cusp of the second-youngest age category (when I hit 21 I will become old, haggard, and cheap, it would seem). I am however bloody lazy and despise any form of exercise that isn't strictly necessary.

I was able to tick 'once a month' for drinking, because I tend to favour infrequent but legendary benders due to financial constraints, but of course the calculator doesn't take into account quite how damaging (socially and physically) these can be!

I don't tan, I have an average diet (lots of fruit and veg for a fortnight after payday, semi-rubbish thereafter) and have lived a life thankfully free of major surgery, albinism, or elephantitis. I plumped for average height and weight, whatever that means.

Oh, and I have long hair, which is apparently worth a lot of money. Who knew?

Having done all that, I now feel depressingly saintly. Must try harder.
