How much is the planet worth?

Really?

How much would we (all of us) fetch at an auction?

What are we worth when this planet spins out of control eventually and sends all living things, except cockroaches, into extinction? We're not worth as much as cockroaches, and I hate those damn things!

My friend put one in a jar when we were little. About 3 weeks later, that sucker was still alive - no water or food. That freaks me out everytime I remember it. Yuck.

that's what we're up against right now... a constant battle for the planet's resources (oil) and minds (religion).

i'm hoping ET lands and puts us all to shame.

Those dead dinosaurs are dirt cheap in terms of car fuel, yet insanely expensive in terms of enviromental damage, terrorism, wars, and lives.
Does it make you wonder how much our corpses would be worth in 6 million years?

Food for thought.

I know a guy that sold his for some thorazine...

As far as the planet, it's hard to say. It's certainly not available in any earth currency (though that will get you portions of it) so the denomination would be in something intergalactic. Maybe it's turned hands several times since we evolved... I have the feeling that it's like the haunted house on the hill that no-one will buy no matter how nice it is
