the best way to make someone hate money:
    #4202827 - 05/21/05 11:19 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

give them ALL OF IT.

see if they like the stress that comes with it.

see if they like people constantly begging them for it, calling them an asshole because they won't give it.

see if they like the responsibility of having all the money in the world.

after a little while, they'll be BEGGING someone to take it off their hands.

greed is its own punishment.

That makes sense actually...but since we don't have all the money in the world, will Monopoly money work?

If we go into another Ice Age, we'll have to use money as fuel for our fires.

The other day one of my friends was talking about how great it would be to have shitloads of money. So I said ,"atleast there is one good thing about NOT having all that money... its not having to worry about losing all that money"

I grew up both rich and poor

I have seen both sides of the equation

poor people worry about not having money

rich people worry about losing theirs

whats the common denominator?

MONEY!

its just a bad idea

Correction: We'll use paper money as fuel for our fires, and will find some other form of currency.

Wrong....to make them hate it take it all away. Money doesn't solve our personal problems, but it is damn nice to be able to problem solve in style instead of in a housing project.

No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

you've obviously never been in possession of ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD.

the people who have know exactly what I'm talking about. it's not fun having to keep guns around and send your children to school in armored cars. having the worst elements of the earth constantly knocking on your door to get a handout for some terrible end or another. Constantly feeling guilty for your wealth.

it's a shitty profession, man, and that's why I've never really wanted it.

i think someone having all the money in the world kinda defeats the purpose of money.

If you feel bad about having money, become a liberal and shed your guilt.
