Poor and miserable is a reality for far too many people. I'm sure they would all love to have a shot at being rich and miserable.

The poll should have also had the option of rich and happy and poor and miserable.

Decent poll, pacattack, but it implies all rich are miserable. I don't think that's the case.

I never intended for the poll to imply all rich are miserable. Just showing how the people around me always use that stupid phrase that money doesen't buy happiness, to which I totally disagree with.

It's nice to see that most people agree with me, and hoping I never hear that tired old phrase again...LOL.

      I hope you have a butt.  However, if you don't you can always buy a really nice one if you have lots of money.

          I'd rather be rich and happy. I couldn't be rich and miserable... How could I walk into my dream home studio with all those guitars onthe wall and be miserable? I have a cheap digital recorder and one guitar that makes me happy now. and more time to play will only make things better:-)

          My family and I are happy now, and money tends to magnify things, so I imagine "rich and blissful" should have been a choice...

          Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

            Happiness is a state of mind..

            Of course health is more important than money / happiness..

            I choose to be happy.

             

            I would be happy  sitting in a mud hole with my hubby... It the quality time that makes me happy..

            I Agree!

            voir-vous dans mes reves!Cool

              I didn't see the choice that I really wanted to choose so I went with what I did know even though I don't know how it had to do with the rest of the answers. I love my mom!!!!!

              I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                I agree but I'm pretty sure my wife wouldn't be happy in the mud hole.

                  To me "poor and happy" implies that at least minimal survival needs are being met.  It is hard to believe that one could be happy without some kind of roof over one's head (at least in this climate) and with some means of getting adequate food.  So in that case, I choose "poor and happy"  over "rich and miserable."  That's not to say that having more money wouldn't be desirable; if I didn't feel that way I certainly wouldn't be entering lotteries.  But I consider myself very happy, even though I'm doing some fancy footwork trying to get the bills paid this month.

                    Perhaps I am just different or maybe I just happen to be one of the ones who has a job doing something I really enjoy. I do like my job and I wouldn't be offended if it paid more. But all things considered, I think everything is ok. At least in the small little space I call my world.

                      Amen there SirMetro! I also have a dream job where I dont feel anything less then blessed to go to work each day and contribute to the economy. ANd I get paid for doing what I like! How cool is that!!

                      I am a FIRM beleiver that you really CANT buy happiness. If ya could someone WOULD HAVE bottled it up and sold it just like bottled water! What a hoot that was to see people buying water and thinking it was the new panecea for their lifestyle! I get my bottled water from a spring near a mountain, and its free!!Now that is happiness!

                      I voted that I love my mom!

                      Since I was raised doing with less I have no qualms in saying that my childhood happiness was NOT attached to money. Ya cant buy bedtime stories or sharing the sunset with your parents even though you cant stay at the Hotel. We camped and did well with those finer moments life had to offer.
