If you are among the calorie consuming, H2O dependant, socially modified contingent of humanity and you reside on the extraterrestrial avenues and slips, and strasses(German for street, no schauffers -S-) of this same satellite, the planet  Earth, as me, then yes! You  would be an asset to yourself, and may even be an assist to me; and maybe even: though seemingly ineffectual to every, other, single person in the wold... and the married, and divorced possibly even hermaphrodites…
