I would only have needed enough to pay my rent,
which was 50 dollars a month in 1983, and another
200 would feed me. I dont eat much. But there was
no 250 a month back then.

Heres how we work this: set up a pool that anyone can
contribute whatever amount they want. Then at the end of
the month we distribute it evenly among all who want a share
of this guaranteed income. Note the guarantee only applies
to the share, not the actual amount. How much do you
suppose that amount would be? spike
