Praise be to all forces of good in the universe that I don't have MTV and so can't watch this program, the concept of which makes me want to projectile vomit!

How they manage to call this a reality series, I don't know.

I think we poor people will have to demand our own equal-time reality show!

Single parent, with shitty job and debts incurred while out of work, travels round town in search of deals on food and kid's clothing and school supplies, while trying to dress decently for her (or his) job on a pitiful wage.

Or (my case) freelancer hopes the cheques will come in before the bills! Hoping it doesn't snow soon, as bus and métro tickets are a lot more expensive than taking my bicycle ... Waiting for annual bazaar at society church in Outremont in hopes of rounding out wardrobe (hint for Montréal babblers - Sainte Madeleine d'Outremont church, starting this Thursday)

If the single parent lives in a small town with no public transport, must calculate whether it is worth it to drive a bit farther in jalopy to get a better deal, while calculating risk of jalopy breaking down as well as gasoline costs ...

And so it goes ...

Surely you jest.After all that would be a little too much reality.

Maybe you're not using it correctly. Give it to me and let me try...

Of course money can buy you happiness. It is a simple principle of physics, taken to a higher level.

Everyone knows that energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only change forms.

Money allows you to control the amount of misery that another person experiences. For example, say you were to foreclose on a persons mortgage and throw someone out of their house. That would make them miserable. Since misery (as a form of emotional energy) has an absolute finite amount in the universe, what misery you give to another person is misery that you do not have. Since the opposite of misery is happiness, by inflicting misery on another person, you are increasing your happiness.

It is all physics. To deny this is heresy against the Church of Science.
