The new j-o-b has provided me with life insurance at no cost to myself. It costs the employer just under $10 (per pay period? I’m not sure) and pays out at $135,000 if I don’t make it. Having no dependants and coming from a family that isn’t caught up in “the struggle” I don’t have much use for this benefit. I’d rather have a little more cash in my pocket.

I’d like to auction off the position of beneficiary, but I’m concerned that it would be illegal, and that I would essentially be putting a hit out on myself. I guess there’s just no way for me to profit from my own death.
