So being an advocate of hating children. I came across this little tool on ABC http://abcnews.go.com/Business/page?id=4019746. It is a tool that attempts to calculate how much it would cost to raise up to 6 children. To the age of 18, starting at any age. I think that most people would find the actual cost of a child today astounding. Granted we have to take into account inflation.

So lets have some fun post how much it would cost to raise yourself. So by todays standards, when my mother spawned me. I would have cost her $391,149. To raise to the age of 18. Yes I can understand this is not the greatest calculator as there is a very limited data range. But it is still fun to play with these things.

Oh yeah, never thought of it like that. Lets all contribute to recovering from the recession by not reproducing

My total is: $212,796
It seems that the coast is lower if there're two parents, but since my mom is single, it coasts more.
This is why I'm finding a job, so I could help out more.

Yeah I noticed that the cost is lower with two parents as well. I think it is a tax thing.
