Having freedom, food and roof is being 90% lucky in life and so is index investing. So, don't let the remaining 10% bother you.

My preferred guess of 3456.78 is already taken, which is a shame.

Instead, I rolled some dice to make my guess, and came up with:

3866.80

(Methodology: roll 6d10. If the first die was anything but a 2, 3, or 4, reroll all the dice. Repeat until the first die is a 2, 3, or 4. Then, each die represents a digit, with 10 being 0. <3, 8, 6, 6, 8, 10> was the roll, so that's my guess)
