Pictures increasing in value

Postby keozen » Thu Sep 06, 2007 11:00 am UTC

Ok, a silly idea but it may be funny while it lasts.

Each successive post has to be of a higher monetary value than the last post.

Try and keep the gaps small ish to keep it interesting (no posting a cardboard box then the Taj Mahal) and be creative.

Ohh, and pop the value on your post (or the rough one at least)

The first three steps will be:

Image
Value $0.01

Image
Value ~$0.02

Image
~$0.05

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.

American Freedom. One hell of a lot more than $450 Billion.

The national debt in ten years.

I can't think of anything worth more than 10 trillion dollars. Maybe claim to a habitable planet.

I call BS on that graph. $70 Trillion could provide world class health care for everyone on the planet for 100 years.

However,

Sure it does.

Claiming that the US healthcare system is in debt equivalent to almost 18 months of the entire worlds GDP sounds excessive. Sure, I know you guys have problems, but... maybe someone just misplaced the decimal point?

According to this site it's $30 Trillion over 75 years. For things like this the government's guess is as good as anyones.

Even then, making a prediction that far into the future is impossible. A 75 year healthcare cost estimate? That's actually the stupidest thing I've heard of this year. We might not even be a money-based economy in 75 years. Cancer could be curable for the cost of a loaf of bread. We might have started bioengineering fetuses to avoid all known inherited diseases. Apparently these people have nothing better to do than make nonsense predictions?[/rant]

Uh, what? $70 trillion is about $10,574 for each person. That could buy health care for about 4 years.

Actually that site says it was $8.7 tril of 75 years, and I assume those are years in the past that they owe for? Anyway all those numbers are pretty stupid because they're so divorced from actual costs, and they have all kinds of companies profits and things tied up in them. I would just ignore the actual specifics and realise that you have a big problem.
But anyway

Edit: I finished reading it, and $8.7 tril was for drugs alone, and it was a future prediction. Thats retarded. By 2080 medicare will take up 95% of all tax income? *mind melts* thats just ... on so many levels.

Priceless. (sorry, I had to)
