You'll need a few variables to use this simple program. First plug in your weight, then your salary or wage over a time period (say a year), and finaly the commodity that you are testing (and value of said commodity). The program will then tell you what you are worth in that commodity. For instance, I may be worth my weight in gold in 4.62 years of working, but I may be worth my weight in jelly beans every 3 days. Next time someone tells you you're worth your weight in gold, you can say "Well actually..."
