Money is NOT the root of all evil. It can be arduous and it can cause extremely difficult situations but it can also make life far more comfortable and stress free. Money can't buy you class, humanity or truth but it can buy you happiness... even the simple. superficial.

Redditor u/Dougyparker wanted to some truths about having cold hard cash that we're always wondering by asking.... What have you purchased that disproves the old adage "Money can't buy happiness"?


Touching.

Massages. SugarieBeast

They usually end with me feeling happy too. FruitGuy998

Damn straight. 

A new mattress. I wake up feeling refreshed instead of groggy now, and sleeping well makes me feel happy. DeathSpiral321

Damn straight. My wife and I paid an insane amount of money for a two-sided, dual controlled temper-pedic bed. We each have a remote to control our own head and foot elevation. And every night for the last eight years as we climb into bed each of us makes loud happy noises as we climb in and pull the covers up. No more back pain, no stiffness in the morning, just comfort and good sleep. Cheerio13

Bliss! 

Debt and mortgage free. Bliss! OoLaLana

Seriously, this would be it for me. I'm a weirdo because when I fantasize about winning the lottery I fantasize about paying off my mortgage and all my bills. Like I literally envision getting a mortgage payoff amount from the bank and going online and making payments. anitabelle

Vacations.

Vacations. Being able to go anywhere anytime. Explore, live in a nice hotel, have other people make your food and clean your room. Travel brings happiness and it costs money. thefriendlypuffin

Goodies for the backyard wildlife......

Goodies for the backyard wildlife. I don't even want to say what I spend on snacks for wild animals. They make me happy, though. I get stupidly excited to see how stupidly excited they are for free easy snacks. I've even bought medication for one when I couldn't get any help from animal clinics and shelters, it made me happy just watching him recover. Alt_Because_Stuff

1000% this......

Therapy sessions. FrogginBullfish

1000% this. First off, what the hell is happiness? What does that even look like? Therapy has helped me start answering these questions and build a life that looks like how I want it. twirlingpink

WOOF!

My dog. I paid money for my dogs and there's nothing that makes me happier. Outlander56

I got my dog through marriage (does that make him my step-dog?), best decision of my life! But, yeah, still not free. imnotfunnybutitry

Same Old...

Some good damn food, tickets to the movies, and video games. Seriously, people underestimate the value of going to the movies by yourself, it's cool as heck. Lo-Fi_Kuzco

EXACTLY!!!!

Gym membership. I bought self esteem. InfinitePizzazz

Exactly. He bought the opportunity to work for self esteem, not self esteem itself. Getting a gym membership isn't a ticket to confidence; I know a guy who has said many times that he would go work out every day and lasts a max of two in a row. Dialgalazer

Best .99 ever spent.....

I went into Goodwill earlier and bought one of them old fashioned ball attached to a cup with string toys. I've been playing with it off and on for hours.

Best .99 ever spent. Butwinsky

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
