Scientists Find Evidence That Money Can’t Buy Happiness

I was over at Mindhacks (http://www NULL.mindhacks NULL.com) today and read an interesting blurb about the psychological nature of happiness. Most people think that having kids and getting more money will make us happy. Apparently, this isn’t true:

But the data show that money has minor and rapidly diminishing effects on happiness, and that parents are generally happier watching TV or doing housework than interacting with their children.

So THERE’s something to think about. I knew I was happier being child free, but I had no idea I was also happier being poor! Hooray! Take that, homeowners with children! I’m going to go sit on my couch naked and watch sexy movies and eat ice cream, and then I’m going to make loud passionate love to my husband without fear of interruption! Woohoo!
