How does one get a 'hummer?' :blowme:

I think that's a nice price, if you're buying it. As a car for hire, no thanks.

I thought the Murcielago was around the $350k range.

The couple hired it for about 15 minutes just to take a few snaps. The salesman from the Lambo shop around the corner drove it over, parked it in the street for a couple of minutes the went on his way after with $1500 cash. I thought it was a bit excessive but......oh well, it aint my money.

Why the fark would you bother, especially for $1500! Each to their own I suppose.

I thought the $100 bucks or whatever it was for my cars was too much.


As always

Money is used for happiness. Sooo if it makes you happy it is always well worth it.

Work->Money->Toys->Happiness

Your theory is good, I like that. If you don't have happiness, why the **** your work so hard for? But usually happiness will cost you a lot of money and the more your achieve that level and you will want more, so it will cost more money and working more hard. I guess that's the cycle of our life.

Exactly....I am all about this theory, we work hard for our money and intend to enjoy it, why bust your butt to make it if you aren't going to enjoy it? We fully believe in savings, a comfortable savings, but we still have fun. I don't understand the people who put it ALL away for their retirement, and then once they retire they don't spend it........WHAT'S THE POINT???? Ya never know how long you are going to be on this earth, if you save every penny and never enjoy spending it and die an early unexpected death, you die not ever having any fun!!!!!!!!

I don't necessarily think money->possessions->happiness is really true. The US is more about quantity of life (buying more things by working more) where Europe is more about quality of life (spending time with family/friends/etc). I agree with the latter more so money doesn't really make me happy (more money more problems anyways). I usually want something more when I don't have it than when I do so I don't really don't want that many things anymore.

Budda - The four holy truths are the four statements that there is pain in this world, that the source of pain is desire, that desire can be annihilated, that there is a way (shown by Buddha) by which the annihilation of all desires can be achieved, and freedom be obtained.

I'm selling the Z so I can walk 13 miles to work in subzero temps.

Actually, I think if you know how to spend it, money can make you happy. If a person had the money and could live comfortably, attain their goals and dreams, help others out in times of need, travel, play, relax, etc., then money can be a vessel FOR happiness. It's just a matter of self control and moderation.
