A Human Stock Exchange

This guy in Portland created his own stock exchange to sell shares of himself.


His 160 shareholders vote on his life decisions like whether or not he should start a relationship or get a vasectomy.

But wait, what happens to all those shares if he dies? There needs to be a derivatives market for this guy. I could buy up a bunch of shares, take out a life insurance policy on him, and then vote for him to take up skydiving.
