Put A Pricetag On Your Life

ST. LOUIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One website is putting a price tag on your life. is a site that calculates a person’s monetary worth should they decide to put themselves up for sale.

The website uses a survey that puts a price on characteristics like athletic ability, looks, and sense of humor.

But it’s brains, not brawn and beauty that makes you a hot commodity.

Site creator Ryan Carstens says, “I put the most value on I.Q. and high school GPA. I take points off for smoking, gambling, and drug use. It’s not something an insurance adjuster should use though.”

Carstens says overachievers should strive to be valued at $3.5 million, but admits it’s hard to accurately estimate a person’s worth because a lot of people lie on the survey.

One person who doesn’t need to lie is Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who Carstens says “is probably a very highly valued person” because of her high I.Q.

But fallen pop princess Britney Spears isn’t worth much cash these days.

Carstens says, “As far as I.Q., I don’t think she’d be very high, so she probably won’t get much.”
