it costs $14,000 to die
We all know that living cost is not cheap these days, but can you believe it costs quite a fair bit just to die?
According to this news report, it costs more than $14,000 for a just basic funeral service in NSW.
Well, there's a better way to die. Say you die while on duty as a policeman or policewoman, or while serving the country, the funeral will not just be paid by the government, but you will also be honoured, perhaps also on TV as well.
