I guess I'll have to rent it.

Money might not buy you happiness, but lacking it can sure make you miserable.

Well, you have to pay for the puppy chow with something and money works.

Money's how you get drugs, right? Of course it buys happiness.
 
2013-09-18 02:38:22 AM
You can't buy happiness itself but you can buy the things that make you happy.  Or it can blow up the things that make you unhappy.

This is why the 1 % is hoarding all the cash, they don't want to allow anyone below them to buy happiness.

If you are a millionare, do your own taxes, hate that a black man is president, then no... money does not buy you happiness.

Oddly enough, that's how much it costs to raise a child. And little kid laughs are the best cocaine-like happiness money can't buy. Holy shiatballs. You think your hobby makes you laugh? Just wait. Kids. Will. Make. You. Shriek. With. Giggles.

Oh God, they are so freaking AWESOME.

It's gotta be, because I don't think gift cards work.

Happy endings are happiness, right?

RIGHT!?

Someone else start posting or I'll turn this midnight West Coast time thread into my own parental anecdotes.

My kid now has email. Which we set up for her and monitor (and she knows we do so). Oh. My. God. So freaking hilarious. She and her friends write like alien beings who are trying out the English language.

"Today I did something and it was fun. I will tell you about the fun thing in the next sentence. The thing I did today was ..."

My wife and I were literally gasping for breath we were laughing so hard.

This is because kids have an instinctive understanding that if they do not successfully entertain their parents then the parents will eat them.

/or abandon them to be eaten by someone else.

Money can't by me love, as the Beatles said... And money never can buy happiness.

But ya know, poverty doesn't help a damn thing either.

The first thing they learn is... "If you can make the parental unit laugh, you'll get away with it."

Hence, fart jokes.

I don't know, it seems like buying a drill bit sharpener would take some of the fun out of doing it by hand. Which is what I'm doing right now. My friends say I'm a party animal.

There is a long story behind it, but I actually cracked up a monk with a fart joke. In Myanmar.

Yes, some things are in fact universal.

I don't know what it says about humanity in general that fart jokes are one of the universal truths.

I have several hundred grand scattered around in accounts and investments, but I still wish I were dead.  Money can't buy me a female body. =(

For myself I mean!! >.<

♫ If money can't buy happiness, guess I'll have to rent it. ♫
 
2013-09-18 08:28:17 AM
It still can't buy love.  But it does improve your bargaining position.
 
2013-09-18 08:29:34 AM
It may not be able to buy happiness... However it can buy ice cream, and that is pretty much the same thing :D.

I think it was Malcolm Forbes who said "Money won't solve all your problems, but the problems you have when you're rich are a hell of a lot better than the problems you have when you're poor."
