    Speaking of the wage system:

    - Get up at 5am
    - Work by 6am
    - Typical work bullshit for 8hrs + lunch break
    - Home at 3:45pm
    - Take out trash
    - Do the dishes
    - Make banana bread muffins before the bananas on the counter go bad

    Finally sitting down now at 4:30. Still have to figure out dinner tonight.

    Wife and kids were home all day.

    Family Life is the REAL wage slavery.

    The most effective way to save a human life is malaria netting which costs about 3500 per person.

    Press the button, donate $7000 to the appropriate charity, repeat

    You're coming out ahead

    $3500 per net or $3500 per malaria incident prevented or $3500 per life saved

    I believe it's $3500 for a lifetime supply of malaria netting
    $3500 directly into my pocket. Please buy more malaria netting.

    In the original version, it was some asshole genie bullshit.
    "Button, Button" was first published in Playboy, June 1970, a short story written by Richard Matheson. The story was republished as part of a collection of Matheson's short stories.

    In the original short story, the plot is resolved differently. Norma presses the button, and receives the money—after her husband dies in a train incident where Arthur is pushed onto the tracks (the money was the no-fault insurance settlement, which is $50,000 instead of the $200,000 in the Twilight Zone episode). A despondent Norma asks the stranger why her husband was the one who was killed. The stranger replies, "Did you really think you knew your husband?"

    Matheson strongly disapproved of the Twilight Zone version, especially the new ending, and used his pseudonym Logan Swanson for the teleplay.[3]

    Malaria netting is pretty efficient, but I think schistosomiasis treatment beats it. Schistosomiasis treatment costs about $2 per person per year, for a disease with a mortality rate of approximately 1 death per 1,000 carriers per year. (Anti-schistosomiasis drugs also have a secondary prophylactic effect against malaria and HIV.)

    The Schistosomiasis Control Initiative spends about 40% of its annual budget on drug distribution.

    If you had a trust fund with an annual return of $6250, that's enough to donate $5k to SCI and have 20% for capital gains tax. You can get that by putting $500k in a CD with an interest rate of 1.25%.

    Push the button once, set up an anti-schistosomiasis fund, spend the rest on hookers and pizza rolls.
