Money Buys Happiness

:iconflatearther:
I am unhappy I need a cup of coffee. I get my coffee and I am happy again. Money bought me happiness. I'm riding my bicycle and I'm miserable because I don't own a Ferrari. If I won the lottery, I'd buy a Ferrari and then I'd be much happier than with a lousy bicycle. Money would buy me a lot of Ferrari happiness.

The ones who say it 'can't' buy happiness are usually a pretty miserable lot reciting their miserable 'sour grapes'
philosophy. They will invariably be working class or lower class underachievers or arrogant and untalented 'artists' or left wing 'trendoids' who can't give up their 4wd's.

Money in the hands of really smart, wise, astute and socially adroit individuals (like my good self) will land on their feet despite adversity. The lottery winners who end up over a cliff were on their way there anyhow. An idiot with a calculator is still an idiot. A dork in
the kitchen will usually cook your dog by mistake or incompetence regardless. In other words, smart ones can buy great and useful happiness because they are above the herd and the dummies keep buying grief because they can't imagine anything else. Cheers!

Money also cures AIDS. You just have to grind it up, mix it with a liquid, and inject it into your bloodstream.

Money can buy you happiness... temporarily. But then you run out.

If the choice came up - be a miserable millionaire for a year or a happy pauper for 10? Cheers!

Naturally. We are biologically hard-wired to desire things as a part of a survival mechanism, so we'll constantly desire more and more. Well, most people anyway.

Money may buy me happiness, but capitalism make me sad. It shouldn't run my life.

So, how much money do you need to qualify as a 'Capitalist'? I've got twenty bucks - would that do it?

"Capitalism" as in Walmart don't let you get overtime (the one where mom works at atleast). That might affect their profit. I don't hate the players, I hate the game.
