AAA just sent me a life insurance offer. Car insurance, I guess they've given up on; they're aiming a bit higher this time. I remember my sister saying she already has a life insurance policy but no cemetery plot. My gut says to do it the other way around, since my experience with insurance companies paying out has been rather dismal. What they do pay out wouldn't cover a plot, and since plots go up with time and policies don't, I feel like you should get one later so that it's at least adjusted for inflation. But let's assume my sister knows what she's talking about. And let's double check by asking the internet.

"At what age should you buy life insurance?"

The internet says you should only get life insurance when you have dependents, or when you're financially stable enough to worry about the extra expense. Or if you have a risky job. It's basically to cover your assets, so don't worry about it unless you have assets. And what about if you have nothing, and only a pet or two depending on you? And what if you'll never really have financial stability on your own? What do you do when your life isn't worth insuring?

I'm going to enact a snail genocide in our fish tank this weekend.
