So, I'm sitting here with my husband and my laptop.
He says, "What are you doing?"
"Finding out how much you're worth dead," I answer.

Hmm. I'm worth $5,075.
But alive, I am apparently worth $2,774,626.

So I guess I'll, um, stay living.
So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

That test is okay, I guess, but their IQ guidelines are...questionable. What level of education you're currently at does not indicate what your IQ is. Your IQ generally doesn't change at all...

Anyway, I'm worth $1,664,000.

Good call. $2.4mil living vs. $4.3k dead is no contest.

Except for the difference in who gets the money. My wife is still stewing about not getting the insurance dough if she just outright kills me,

If they are valuing cadavers in dollars, I'd better cash in now. The way things are going, $5625 is going to be worth next to bugger all in good old £££ pretty soon.

Being colorblind and short kinda hurt me there.
