The point of this whole assignment is to prove that there is always an amount of effort put in to everything you get. Someone or something had to preform an action to create what you want, have, or need. For example, oxygen isn't free since a plant had to make it. Even if you don't use currency it still cost labor.

I'm not including things that death causes as a cost. A proper burial is not contributing to the death itself. If it is not necessary to cause the death, then it doesn't count as a cost. Trauma as a result of a loved ones death did not kill the one who died.
The first scenario I thought of was a man with no connections to people drowning. The water is free of course and the man not is trying to survive whatsoever. That man is putting no effort into trying to live, or trying to die. Is it a free death?
Tanstaafl is exactly what I'm getting at.
