    the world would be a better place if we didn’t need the reminder but knew those truths intrinsically… that’s unfortunately not the case, and it is good to be reminded. Thanks.

    Good list Chris, but I think you should mention one thing that money CAN buy… WOMEN!!!

    Btw, that was a joke. Hope I don’t get any hate mail for that one…

    Money money, it is the rat race and it is great to think of the none money things. I remember a great study that linked money and happiness up to 30,000, but over that amount it was an inverse relationship, the more money more problems. Was that socrates?

    money can not buy happiness =D>

  13. DeeNo Gravatar UNITED STATES Says:

    Money buys shelter (over head and on body) and food – without that, there is very little foundation for basic stability, and often a path towards unhappiness. So a little money (or support) helps to attain a calm mind and some foundation for happiness.

  14. ChrisNo Gravatar INDONESIA Says:

    That of course is true as well. ;-)

    quote from someone at slashdot.org :

    “Money can’t buy happiness, but somehow it’s more comfortable crying in a Porsche than a Hyundai.”
