    Default Can money buy happiness?

    I'm thinking...probably, because of all of the opportunities it affords you. Thoughts?

    Money buys freedom, sometimes, and freedom often fosters, or allows one to be/come happy.

    To a certain extent, money contributes to happiness. It's hard to be jolly when you're starving and can't afford health insurance.

    To an extent. If I had a lot of money I'd be extremely happy. The only thing that it couldn't really buy is a true companion, but with the amount of money you would have you could meet someone wherever you decided to go and then settle I suppose. Go to a huge city, so to a club, find some dates, yeah.

    Money = Freedom in terms of your time and schedule.

    Freedom is how you become happy because you can spend all your time with your loved ones.

    Yes, this is my thought too. Lots of issues that are major problems for poor people are nothing once you reach a certain financial point.

    Depends on the person.

    In my case, I need a good relationship to be truly happy. So no.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Money can buy you a chance to find love.
