If I got kidnapped, who would come and pay the ransom? I dun think I would matter enough to anyone to warrant ransom payment, especially if the ransom was like $5 million bucks (or anything in the millions).
But since I'm that insignificant, I'm in no danger of being kidnapped anytime soon. Or find out how much I'm actually worth to those around me.
The above thought is courtesy of yet another random tangent at work. The Philippines Yearbook publishes the number of people who are kidnapped year and amount of ransom asked for amongst other nonsense like number of prisoners escaped and also those recaptured.
