To me, It seems kind of pointless to try to come up with a single "per
hour" rate for erasing of memories. It would all depend on what
happened in that hour. If it was an hour spent waiting for the bus,
then sure... $50 or perhaps even less would be fine with me. On the
other hand, there are some hours of my life I would only be willing to
erase for several billion dollars. Most of the hours in my life are
somewhere in between.
