I vaguely remember one story where someone was traveling in space at near light speed, and expected to outlive everyone back on Earth because of the time dilation. Instead, the people on Earth had a cure for old age, but it had to be administered before the age of 50. The returning astronaut was just over that age, meaning he'd be the last person on Earth to die of old age.

Revolt? With what? A few guns and knives against armed drones? I would call it less of a revolt and more of a plinking session. :)

There are 7 billion people on Earth. Assuming 99% of them lose their jobs - just how much ammo do you have for them new-fangled drones?

My single income is quite a bit less than 100K, and there's no way in hell I'll have a 300K house, barring winning the lotto, something illegal, or both. But I still make more than many entire families I know. Some of them would be thrilled to make 50K. By their standards, I am rich.
