Who Said Money Can Buy Happiness?

These people are the very definition of "sad", not happy. They make me sad too, 'cause I'm sick to death of hearing all about them. I wonder if anyone other than the media gives a flip about them?7:56 PM
They are sad.
I fear that Spears is on her way to an end like Anna Nicole Smith - and I wouldn't wish that on anybody.
Sometimes I wonder if these people might return to some semblance of a "normal" life if the media and papparazzi would leave them alone.
I guess we'll never know.
How about the Kennedys...lotsa money...not a particularly happy family.8:25 PM
I'll bet he's REALLY unhappy about now...
And I second the nomination of the entire Kennedy family, to include that Skakel kid (now fat adult) who murdered Martha Moxley.
Some more examples:
The Real Housewives of Orange County
Countless lottery winners (Who got divorced soon after winning)
9/11 widows who received millions
Rivers Cuomo (Lead singer of Weezer)
Vince Clarke (Brains behind Depeche Mode, Yazoo, and Erasure)
Any girl starring in Bangbus
Todd MacFarlane (Creator of Spawn)
Steve Wozniak (Brains behind Apple)
Linus Torvalds (Creator of Linux)
The pursuit of wealth as happiness is a road without end because you can always make more money. With that in mind, that means you'll never really be happy.
I have a friend who graduated from college about a year ahead of me. After one year of making the bux out in the world, he's divorced his wife and his personal life is a wreck, but he owns nice things (largest TV on the market, brand new Escalade, new house...).10:14 AM
