Ever wonder if you are worth more dead or alive?

Someone dating you might, according to the dating site Mingle2.

While Mingle2's cadaver calculator won't do life insurance policies or tell you your carbon footprint , it will tell you how much your healthy body, or unhealthy body as the case may be, is worth to science.

If you don't mind anonymously answering personal questions such as the number of drinks you have in a week or whether you have elephantiasis, the bizarre quiz will calculate your worth in death.

Unfortunately, good health and normalcy is not necessarily the name of the game when it comes to whether science is interested in you.

Price for this healthy writer's body dead: $5,075.

See if you fare better.
