From the No Shit Sherlock Department:

Having Money Helps With Satisfaction

Are you satisfied? I'm not. [weep]

I've always thought the phrase 'money can't buy you happiness' was always a load of crap.

Then again, I'm a heartless prick. [Wink]

Yes, but I'm willing to bet the 24% of "poor" people who said they were "very satisfied" are more completely satisfied then the 56% of "rich" people who said they were "very satisfied."

True happiness doens't lie in money or posessions, but it knowing that you are worth more then both.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

You mean your employer gave you the arse ?

Yes..as UNBELIEVABLE as it sounds, they put the boot to my incredible ass.

The company fell apart after I left.

That's because they got distracted watching you walk out for the last time, and forgot to run the company [Wink]
