Saw a post on the guy winning 258M Powerball jackpot and there were comments on how money won't buy you happiness. Also I did a video post about getting rich by legally stealing money and had a couple of comments on how they didn't need to get rich, they were able to get by with whatever they had, either in the past or now.

That's when I remembered that I had seen this thing about marshmallows and money, so I thought I'd put it up.

As for money not buying you happiness, I'd sure as hell like to be able to try. I remember on an episode of "Gilligan's Island" where Mrs. Thurston Howell III said when someone said money won't buy you happiness, "They obviously don't know where to shop!!"

I have heard that even tho money won't buy you happiness, you can rent it for awhile!!


  1. I've always thought that tired "money can't buy you happiness" line was worth challenging. I'd certainly step up to the plate.

  2. Money can buy certain pleasures and comforts, but if you are a miserable wretch to begin with it probably won't. Knowing my luck, if I won the lottery I would go somewhere dangerous or do something foolish enough to get me killed. I do know that money can buy trouble.

  3. The thing that money buys you is options. What you do with those options is up to you. (I could go for a chance to test the theory.)

  4. Extra money is okay if you have it, I've made some damn good money a few times in my life but money is just an energy that flows around, you get it and you get rid of it.

    The key is in learning how to get by okay on what you have at the time and I'm fine with my little retirement.

    If things get worse I'll still be fine. Worrying about money is for needy and greedy people.

    If I only had a five hundred buck a month income I would figure out how to get by okay on it. Would maybe have to do more camping in my yard though.

  5. money won't buy you happiness..but it will enable you to pull your jaguar next to it and walk over..

  6. .... But it will, at least. let you have cashmere lined misery.
