# How much do you think the ultra complex human body would be worth if we were able to price it, for example in comparison to the expensive asimo robot?

Warning! Long answer. My estimate is fifty-one million US dollars.

#### Explanation:

Interestingly, body fluids and tissue are more valuable than body parts.

Here's my calculation, using the most recent prices I could find.

Females are more valuable than males, because they can produce valuable egg cells.

Thus the total value of the human body is \$50 581 000.

Although this breakdown is illegal, unethical, and impossible, you should no longer feel like a million dollars.

You can now feel like fifty million dollars instead!
