I think more than people want to be rich they just want to know that they can keep what they have and not worry about it getting f*cked with. Sure, they'd take a windfall if it came their way.....but on a day-by-day basis they want assurance more than anything else.

I have 24 years living poor and miserable, gone through depression.
I think I can handle the "terrible" life of being rich and depressed.

people who have never lived in a third world country don't even understand what poor is.
here, you can have a family vehicle, internet, telly, cable, three square meals a day, and still be considered "dirt poor."
Lol, technically, it's impossible to go without "needs' here in USA: There are so many homeless shelters, govt. assisted housing, food stamps. .. You only go without needs, and become homeless, IF U WANT TOO.
The only way you'd be depressed and poor, is if you are obsessed with keeping up with materialistic culture we push. . . ANd you can't have your brand names, and iphones, etc.
Lol @ being poor and having the internet. . .

Lol if money makes you happy, then obviously you'd choose that option
That's not really what the thread is asking

how rich are we talking about?
and how "depressed?"
if there are problems that i can fix i'd obviously take the monety. if i'm doomed to a completely miserable existence i'd take happyness, but it would be a b#tch to have to give up my current state for being poor. that's really not why i work so hard...

You can't fake your self into happiness. The thread's analogy is the equivalent of "Would you have a fully functioning penis but unable to ever get laid OR would you rather have a castration but every woman in the world wants to fuk you".
