    Proof that money cannot fix a debilitating stroke.

    That's sad :/
    idk if money had anything to do with it though. That saying never makes sense to me (not bashing you, I swear). I think it goes both ways. Money doesn't buy happiness, but being poor doesn't mean you'll be happier than what you would be if you were rich.
    idk I rather be depressed and rich than depressed and broke. I'll have fancier tissue to clean up my tears :p

    Yeah -- why the hell do you have to sensationalize the post OP.

    I shouldn't be laughing at that.

    I see what you're saying though. The guy did seem happy until the stroke happened. What he did was honorable; giving away all that money. The article also states he was proud of the place he owned on the UWS. I've been past it; it is a great area.

    There's much more 'proof' besides this.

    Life is what you make of it, not what money makes of it, silly...

    at least he pushed all that cash to charity...
    ...but i do wonder what he did - trying to resolve it with spending cash on charity.
    ...and still make him jump.

    My apologies if the title of the thread was offensive. I was merely using the same headline as the site.

    I used to loathe that site but it's sorta entertaining in a trainwreck sort of way. It's a melting pot of all the decadence and moral disintegration of western civilization.

    Why am I silly? I was merely reiterate a commonly used phrase, "Money can't buy happiness".
