If you believe money won't bring you happiness, would you still accept the money?

No amount of money is worth for being manipulated or enslaved by a manipulator. I value my freedom and dignity more than anything. In real life, nobody gives you 20 millions dollars without any implied strings attached, may be not legally but at least psychologically.

Whatever, I know you're full of it.

    Aw, leave Ridge alone. If he wants to come out of the closet with hints here and there, it's fine with me. It's HARD for them sometimes. I have nothing against Ridge whispering sweet nothings in Bubba's ear (or redhot)....Green laugh

        Anybody who doesn't think money wouldn't make them happy is probably not OK up there in the brain space......................so theoretically no internet,  running water,  electricity, MP3's, food etc.......

        Finally, someone who's being totally honest.

            Apples and oranges. People are happy when they're drunk and smoked. Bad analogy Raven.

            According to you, If I'm gonna be unhappy ANYWAY, I may as well be rich and unhappy....DUH!!!

            But that's according to you, not to me. I know for a fact I'll be happier than an elephant in high heels...

            What's your wish list with 20 million Joker ?

            The first thing I do is retire , the second, I go get a new cars for me and Hubby, Third I quietly help friends and family in need, fourth I get a blue ray disc player with complete Harry Potter DVD'S, Then we plan a nice vacation.

            Do I have a grand plan if I win a nice chunk, not really, What makes me Happy, My Husband and Son, my garden, walking my dogs, having lunch with my sisters and laughing our a**es off.

            Never will I believe that true happiness can be bought, it's something you feel in your heart , mind and soul.

            Money can bring financial security, only if you know how to handle it.

            Would I accept the money ? sure thats why I gamble, I will continue to gamble, I will play 3 digit as long as it's there to play. The money would free up our time to do the things we enjoy.

                  OK joker, I'll play.

                  Winning $20,000,000 that I don't think would make me happy would make me so happy.

                  (This is a PSYOPS exercise).

                  Maybe we should do a thread about what money can and can't buy, or would continuing this thread with that be a hi-jack?

                  Your call.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      Heavens to Betsy, Goodness Gracious and Land Sakes Alive, aren't you the homophobe!

                      You humanists are so hateful!

                      You owe each and every tinkerbelle in here an apology, Nancy!

                      Oh wait... you're the only one except for the princess who purportedly went to Sweden for an operation.

                      Well then... never mind.

                       

                      Thank God I'm a country boy! Yeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaa!

                      Nice try, but no cigar!

                        Could someone else talk to Nancy please?
