Imagine you’re told that reincarnation is, in fact, a thing—and you’re given two options for who to be born as in your next life:
1) Born in the year 1700 as the heir to the French throne
2) Born in the year 1985 to a family in a developed country with a household income equivalent to $70,000 in 2017 dollars
Which would you choose? All things considered, who’s the luckier baby?
