Re: from ray to zee

I've noticed that while all my friends think they are in their golden years, I think I'm on my gun lap. Plenty of stuff I still want to do. Poker has never been an obsession or profession--just something to do while I'm doing something else. In the past it was like a mother who will always take you in and give you a meal--and I imagine in the future it will return to that.

Did you read that in the Bible somewhere?

Iíve done fairly well and have accumulated enough good money to accomplish lots of bad things. Fun times ahead for me! Same for you?

don't disagree, but true happiness in life is not this polarized
at what cost is the act of getting money?
at what cost is the act of living without money?
financial homeostasis is the goal

Re: from ray to zee

i dont think so. i cant see anyone without any money at all being happy.

most have their own level of happiness and money doesnt change that too much but helps.

Re: from ray to zee

monetary wealth and money is basically the same thing. and one can be converted into the other.

money has been said it is a medium of exchange but really it is a storage of value.

Re: from ray to zee

if you have zero liability and infinite happiness, does money really enter into the equation?

As it turns out, money is just a government construct used to facilitate taxation.

Re: from ray to zee

Money buys happiness necessities, but there are diminishing happiness returns as one accumulates money. Did I miss something?

Re: from ray to zee

eons ago before real money, govts. took part of your crops or goods for payment of taxes.

similar to the wealth tax being propose by some politicians. who feel they can spend it better than you.

Re: from ray to zee

may first and springtime in most of the u.s. still colder way up north and getting real hot way down south.
poker is getting better all the time. games are improving in most places and many more are showing up to play. hope it stays that way.

This reminds me of a famous quote from Mark Twain. When asked about the proverb "The love of money is the root of all evil" Twain replied "I thought it was the lack of money."
