I was pandering this when playing Xbox one online, it showed me the amount of days and hours I had accumulated playing Call of duty. Which would be 4 days 17 hours, that is now gone forever.

What else could've possibly been a more use of precious time other than me being a monkey staring at screen pressing buttons?

But, you might say basically people who work are essentially trading time for cash. I'm talking in a futuristic and more direct way. No middle man.

You just fill a form out at the bank on how many hours you would like to cash-in.

For this hypothetical I would like to place humanity in the year 3,000. Advanced cybernetics everyone is immortal, We were defeated in a galactic war. We are on the brink. Our planet is severely overpopulated due to no one dying.

So each newborn is implanted with device of removed releases a lethal virus. And/or that heart after 40 years. Once a human reaches age 30 the device would countdown from 10 years until death does its part. You can also check your timer via an App or something I guess.

Some (me) would say we already do.


Wouldn't trading dollars for time mean you knew when you were gonna die?

What happens when your time expires, do you just drop dead or are you hunted down?

You do trade time for money. It's called work.

Sure, we're in the future and If your time expires your the chip in artificial heart is automatically repossessed.

You can also gamble a month or 4 from your life in the national lottery

Yes. I'd burn the candle at both ends and then stick it in the micro wrapped in tinfoil. I'd rather live fast and hard than long and regretful.

Too bad I only get the long and regretful package.

Since the day you started your first job, or essentially were born you have been trading your personal currency hence forth from here on out known as TIME, for things.

We spend our time for another currency, known as "money".

We spend our time on other people, usually in a symbiotic fashion, called "friends" or "significant others".

However, you can never put currency back in to your personal bank of time, you will never have more then you do right this second, it's always being spent.

People equate money to their time more and more, and you will never get enough money for your time, even if you were paid $1,000,000 an hour, it still isn't worth your time, unless it is something you love. Even still here, I argu that ones time is priceless.

We spend our time doing things we don't like, and things we do like. Unfortunate, in this day and age, we are doing less of what we want, and more of what we don't want JUST TO LIVE, and eek out an existence, to pay all the bills and buy food.

Some of us refer to it as "modern slavery".

The Federal Reserve (central bank) is the company store. The drug dealer of the modern age, dealing the lifeblood of every person in the world, just so you can survive.

We definitely trade years of lives for $ right now. Salaried worker, 50 hrs a week, 2 weeks of vacation, that's 2500 hours a year or 104 days and some change.

It's a fair trade.

If you don't enjoy your work, get another job.

I enjoy my job and quite thoroughly I might add. I'm working now and on ATS. Fair is a case by case basis I suppose.

I don't think I would trade days of my life because as far as we know we only live once and so no matter the amount of money I have it will all be useless without days to use it on!

Sure I would.

Would be truly awful software to be glitchy though, wouldn't it.
