How much does it cost to "buy" a human?

Postby Hiremas Alkerith » Fri Sep 22, 2017 9:13 am

This question just occured to me. How much does it cost to "buy" a human? When I say that I don't mean buying a live human (Heck, or buying a dead one) I just mean how much money would it cost, to buy all the "ingredients" necessary to make a human?

*Waits for the trolliness to begin*

Will you include labor costs?  A median STEM employee (i.e., biologist or engineer) earns about 35USD/hr and a human takes about 6720 hours total to make, for a total of $235,200. (HOLY SHIT  :shock:)

A fresh human weighs roughly 8 pounds and its composition is similar to pork.  Pork costs about $4 per pound so that comes out to $32.

The average length of a fresh human is 16 inches.  It has a skill level of "Incompetent" and a half mind.  Its structure level is 0.5 and has no effective propulsion or weapons of its own.  That would be 8.25 CP.

No weapons? If I was a minifig I wouldn't feel at all safe next to a human baby

Take the budget for Human Centipide, and add/subtract for differing qualities of resources. Armor or weapons vary too, use the black market or E-bay for that. Amazon may or may not work.
