The Economists just don't get it...

Well, that's not news, but then again, that's not what I mean when I say "get it". The NY Times reported the other day in their Ideas & Trends section that "increasing the frequency of sexual intercourse from once a month to at least once a week provided as much happiness as putting $50,000 in the bank". I don't know about you, but I could sure use 50 G's right now. Yeah, getting laid rocks, but shooting a load and the orgasm euphoria that follows is way more fleeting than getting a butt load of dough. True, $50 grand doesn't buy that much considering, but the happiness it would give some folks as they get out of debt (that would clear mine), buy a car, take a vacation (where you could get laid in the sun sipping a frothy tropical cocktail) beats soiling the sheets hands down, and I'm 100% certain that 99% of the copulation population would agree. "Fitty"-thousand duckets also has got to beat beating the meat-which I'm sure many of those economists who aren't doing the wild thing must be doing on a regular scrotation. Of course "the more sex, the happier the person" holds true, but it's also a no-brainer that w/ more money cums more opportunity to have sex, and I don't think anybody would argue with me about that, whether you're talking about paying for "it" or not. the bottom line is that this was/is a complete waste of research time and money, and it's just another example of people who have money taking it for granted. I really think that those powers that be are trying to convince us poor proles to stay that way, accumulating all the wealth while insisting that the old proverb "money can't buy happiness" is true-you know that's part of the Republican "dumb, fat, barefoot and pregnant" strategy. These Economists are either trying to further condition us to these shit conditions, or they just plain have no idea. I wonder who funded this study? Probably the Religious Right, right? You know, those high arch bishop priest types w/ their sleazy Cheney grins who preach celibacy and family values and then commune with little boys in the confessional booths, those guys who think prostitution is morally wrong but degradation isn't. Sorry, guys but money buys more sex, and I'll prove it to you if you give me some (money).
