Everything has a physical price. Food, services, vacations, and even sex and love – they all have a physical amount we pay in exchange for them. But other things have a hidden emotional cost, a price you pay with your nerves and nail-bites.

We’ve chosen to measure this cost in FO’s or, Freak Outs. For example, spilling coffee on your new shirt is worth 5 FO’s, while your mother catching you in bed with a boyfriend would be closer to 50,000 FO’s.
