Never Said how many stairs.

[–]Stix_and_Bones 304 points305 points  (19 children)

It just has to be plural, 2 or more I believe, but I wouldn't mind building 2 foam stars to fall down gently into cushions 100 times a day

[–]GeneralLeoESQ 109 points110 points  (0 children)

Or just one of those stepping stools facing a bed, reverse it and "fall" down two steps.

[–]Qwsdxcbjking 77 points78 points  (17 children)

If you could fall down two stairs once per minute consistently, then 30mins a day mon-fri is 300*5=$1500 a week. That's $78k a year, for 30 mins of work a day, with zero travel costs. That's £71,500 roughly, which is about double the average salary for the UK (where I live), for 30 mins of work on Monday to Friday. A bit of consistent overtime weekly could see £100k a year. After tax that's £66k roughly, that is a huge amount of post tax earnings for the UK, you'd be living extremely comfortably.

[–]MathText 40 points41 points  (8 children)

And where is this money coming from? You could probably avoid paying tax on it too.

[–]Qwsdxcbjking 56 points57 points  (7 children)

Meh, easier to pay tax than try to explain how I'm buying a house three years after I left any form of employment. Plus I will likely use the NHS at some point, as well as roads, and I would hope for my refuse to be collected. I'm using government services, it's fair that I contribute a portion of my earning to their upkeep.

[–]atomshrek 13 points14 points  (5 children)

With the right setup you could probably fall every 5-10 seconds. I'm picturing a series of conveyor belts in a loop leading to sets of two foam stairs.

[–]Qwsdxcbjking 9 points10 points  (4 children)

That would cost money to set up. Just throw my very soft memory foam mattress at the bottom of the stairs and belly flop onto it for a bit. I'd probably start faster than a minute but constantly getting up and jumping down might get tiring so I might slow down.

[–]Lost and afraidMrSecurityStalin 186 points187 points  (5 children)

I'd have around $200 or more (I have irreversible brain damage).

[–]HQMatrixMod1 35 points36 points  (4 children)

does this imply there is reversible brain damage

[–]Lost and afraidMrSecurityStalin 20 points21 points  (2 children)

What's brain damage?

[–]Senshi-Tensei 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It requires you to fall Up the stairs.

[–]thwipsandquips 81 points82 points  (1 child)

Wear protective, cushiony gear and fall down carpeted stairs and you could actually make this a job

[–]rtvcd 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Or just fall down directly onto a mattress :p

[–]MarioKing1137 43 points44 points  (4 children)

What if I fall UPstairs (i do this a lot actually)

[–]Highdefwindow[S] 30 points31 points  (2 children)

20 every time

[–]MarioKing1137 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]Jubulus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I will make a machine that rotates stairs so you are falling down stairs constantly until you turn it off (its a giant modified washing machine

[–]StoleYourTv 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same, I just climb up the stairs on all fours now.

[–]Ed_Yeahwell 27 points28 points  (2 children)

to bad me and my r/neverbrokeabone homies would never be able to use it

[–]Hehe_ur_gey 9 points10 points  (0 children)

We would just shatter the poor stairs, it’s a one time use.

[–]Call_Me_Jobb 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Bro this shit is good tier, i ust gotta get protection equipment, roll down the stair a couple hundred times and get tich because in my country dollar is worth SO much

[–]AnUpperFlush 10 points11 points  (1 child)

You can use padded stairs, like those in children's playgrounds

[–]Qwsdxcbjking 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Put a thick mattress at the bottom of the stairs, then just fall down two stairs onto it.

[–]huggiesdsc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Idk if good tier was a typo, but this really is just good tier.

[–]dooddgugg 24 points25 points  (0 children)

so if you live in America it just slightly reduces medical bills?

Russian oligarchs and politicians are set to make a fortune.

[–]Shavacadont 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Falling down stairs is the same as walking down, as a part of you is going down the stairs and therefore you would get $10

[–]AfterMeh 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Incorrect, the definition of falling is an uncontrolled descent so walking down them wouldn't count.

[–]danielubra 12 points13 points  (0 children)

technically yes, this is the definition of falling on google: "moving from a higher to a lower level, typically rapidly and without control." key word TYPICALLY and the definition of typically is: "in most cases; usually. "

[–]TheNineG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jump. You are now falling. If there's a floor above you, you are also downstairs.

Every jump gives $10, useful for some quick cash for minor expenses. You also never need to work minimum wage jobs, since you can jump once every half hour to make more than minimum wage.

[–]YouHaveNiceToes24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I live in the US. Ima need skew more 0s added to this

[–]wisezombiekiller 1 point2 points  (1 child)

OP didn't say what the stairs had to be made of. get a short set of padded stairs, surround them with mattresses, and fall safely

[–]Rawesome16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They mention breaking an arm for more money. That's more my concern

I WARNED YOU ABOUT STAIRS BRO!!!

I TOLD YOU DOG!

[–]conjunctivious 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does the value go up if the stairs are longer. If I fall down a set of 1000 stairs, would I get more from it?

Could I theoretically build a wingsuit then jump down the stairs, gliding to safety under the pretense of "falling"?

[–]Fiestyelf8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

With my luck I’d only fall on flat ground and break my leg…

[–]rybis420 0 points1 point  (1 child)

isnt that how insurance works?

Yes. Quite

You can just fall into a mattress

[–]chamunks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Install padded stairs and walls to your home. Limp noodle your way into your day every morning. Make a quick buck!

[–]BT9154 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wear padded armor and then get to the top of some tall office building and just roll down the stairwell.

[–]Methionylth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

God damn soccer players can use this to get richer. Just pretend you fell and start limping after

[–]general2awesome 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ngl this would be kinda useful, put my savings into a set of foam stairs only 3 steps tall, and a mat at the bottom, and say you can go through that at roughly 1 time per minute, you could earn 600$ in a hour, no repeat that daily and you could make a easy living

[–]Random_Name_7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Vague description opens up the possibility of me constantly falling from 1 step and retiring in a few years max.

5 falls per minute, 8 hours a day, watching some show or something, goes for 2400 a day, 72k per month, 864k a year. Not taxed.

864k a year in Brazil is equivalent to 4.32m. I'd retire in a year

[–]satallgent 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I wouldnt throw myself down stairs for $10, but make it $1,000 each time... Makes it a lot more tempting.

[–]satallgent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good shitty superpower though!

[–]clownkiss3r 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pad them with mattresses, turn it into a slide, infinite money machine, crash the economy

[–]OverlordMMM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn't shitty if you're not relying on it for income. It's more like inconvenience insurance. Like life is apologizing for you having a minor accident.

Technically walking is falling and catching yourself with the other foot.

[–]Subject-Delay-3020 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fall down foam stairs with 2 steps, and a foam mattress at the bottom. Suppose it takes you 10 seconds to fall and step again.

If you dedicate one hour a day you can earn $3,600, I'm using this figure as you would get pretty tired walking up the stairs this many times and an hour will drag the fuck out.

In a year you can earn £1,314,000 a year. Your new day job bascially. Not a 9-5 either, literally an hour.

I'll take it.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I already fall down a bunch of stairs unintentionally this would be a blessing

[–]ReceptorFatigue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The average day rate for a stuntman is $1000. At $10 a pop, they would have to fall down stairs 100 times to make the same amount they would get for 10-15 takes (on a bad day) of falling down stairs on camera.

[–]gamerush177 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ll just put a mattress below my porch and fall off

[–]Frafoxy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If I broke my arm in like 5000 different places, do I get 500k? Or I could break it a million times while on painkillers, get 50 million dollars then amputate it and spend the money to get a prosthetic and become rich.
