    is that people who have really high incomes for just a few years (athletes, some musicians and actors, a writer who has two best sellers) would massively raise their life-time average monthly earnings because they'd be paying in on way more of it.

    It would be fairer to people whose careers have big dips and peaks.

    Machine gun bullets became the bloody baptizers/ And the falcon 'copters don't care if someone's the wiser/ But the boy in the swamp didn't know he was killed by advisers
