Things Money Can Buy In 2015

And my obsession with this new phenomenon continues. I mean, the student debt is enough to keep someone like me from spending money on artificial friends — I can’t even afford my real ones! >_<

Can you imagine people going around in real life, saying things like, “hey, if I give you $20, will you Like/follow me?” Oh, people do…

All these actions — paying for love, freedom, a new body — are personal choices, and it’s certainly nothing new. But, I wonder: does it make YOU happy, or are you merely seeking society’s approval? I doubt the goal is to please oneself.  Dalai Lama XIV allegedly said:

We are visitors on this planet. We are here for one hundred years at the very most. During that period we must try to do something good, something useful, with our lives.

Couldn’t agree more. Fooling oneself can’t be happiness. Find people who will love you for reals. Don’t be silly; if you did something wrong, karma will get you sooner or later. Learn how to age gracefully. Stop pleasing society. Use time and space wisely.

  1. I thought it was understood that money CANNOT buy you love. Anything money CAN buy that remotely seems “real” seems to be short-lived and artificial. It’s like a bargain made with a certain sinister character. You sign the dotted line, but there are strings attached. You lose your soul in the bargain and lose the perk you thought you had sooner or later.

    You can pay someone to act; but you cannot make someone love you…unless all they love is money. In which case, they’ll never love you. They’ll just shout, “Oh, Benjamin!” in bed as they pretend you are a heap of $100 bills.
