Yeah. I also predicted last weeks lottery numbers which is why I now 
only work for fun.



I always ask people this question when money comes up,
"If your physical needs were met (house,food etc.), what would you do 
for the rest of your life ?"

I suspect that a very long time ago back in the dark ages, we discovered 
that human life is ultimately pointless and so 'money' was invented to 
create a bias and then 'consumerism' gives most western people something 
to take their minds of the futility of it all.

IMHO anyway.
