The Value of Friendship

I once read that the human body, broken down in to its constituent parts, is worth about $4.50. Considering how complex society has attempted to make the issue of the value of human life, I have to appreciate this simple, (quasi)scientific approach to valuation.

But, what about something a little less tangible. Like, say, a friendship? 

Burger King recently revealed that it is possible to put a price on friendship. If you sacrifice 10 of your friends (on Facebook), they'll give you a Whopper. That's a $2.39 value! It didn't take me long to figure out which friendships I would sacrifice for a Whopper. In fact, I think I came out about $0.12 ahead on the deal.

Hoop, don't feel bad, you were at least 8 or 9% of the value. Of course, that does imply your friendship is worth less than your constituent parts. strange.
