    You know what's really the most valuable thing in the world? Quality HAI topic suggestions. That's why I reward each one that we use with an HAI t-shirt (valued at $20 plus shipping.) Make sure to suggest yours here: forms.gle/vXw6uy6Pzg3KdzdJA

      Does the earth count as a single thing? It's a single planet. Technically the sun is a single thing with a known mass and a known composition. How much money would you need to buy the sun?

      When you consider the fact that the U.S military is given about $600 billion dollars a year, and the ISS is worth, in total 1/5 of that, speaks volumes about our countries efforts as a whole and what we could achieve if we worked together instead of fighting each other.

      I think you are getting too absorbed with the sponsors and the fact that ISS was the most expensive did not really back up with your logic of why you are NOT considering certain other objects. The quality is dropping significantly and you need to address this. With your knowledge,. It would be worth pondering if this is leading you to become a joke

    Good sidestep on antimatter. Antimatter also is as versatile a category as matter (theoretically there's anti-hypdrogen, anti-helium, etc.) so it would be an incredibly unsatisfying answer.

    I don't think the space station counts. At all. You can't buy it. Something that won't be sold doesn't have any value. This video should be about the most expensive thing that Jeff Bezos might actually conceivably want to purchase at a reasonable market value if he just wanted it badly enough. It should be a consumer item, and by that I mean mega mansions qualify, or a skyscraper as a business investment type deal. Something with intrinsic value because a painting has none.

    Is the 3.37B for the B2 adjusted for inflation? Just curious because I was stationed at Whiteman AFB, MO where they're kept, and for our annual performance reports we valued them at 2.2B, what we were told was the cost per new B2. I find it funny that tens of thousands of people who have worked with the aircraft in some fashion, could all be running around and spouting off an inaccurate cost. Can't really blame us though, because the purchasing party should have a correct price, but it wouldn't be the first time. Thanks.
