As long as our subconscious minds have different expectations than our outside reality, we, being people as a whole, are going to be fighting through constant disappointment with our surroundings.

So we watch more tv, buy more (new) games, so the expectations never get old.

My two cents. I don't give a jack shit about my life turning out like the ads I've seen. Other people though man...

lala when they hear this.
When the DOOM is on, who you gonna call?

MR GLP.

With a striking resemblance to JFK and the voice of Al Capone, he can use the GLP effect to negate any doom, anywhere, at any time.

So so true! My kids were great until they started thinking our lives should be like what they saw on TV. It took us years to get that shit out of their heads. They're better now, but my daughter has the right idea. No TV for her kids. Wish I knew then what I know now.

Re: People will never be happy.. Because we have movies, tv, and commercials.
Just to elaborate a bit on this theme. When I was much younger, I had a lovely house and we lived quite nicely. Then I started selling real estate (hated it), and all of a sudden I was nagging my hardworking husband to get us a bigger house and more stuff. I quickly came to my senses when I realized I just wanted what I was selling. I didn't need it, it was out of our reach, but that one year I felt I just had to have a brand new, luxury house with all the bells and whistles.

I stopped selling real estate (and to be honest, I sucked at it), took care of my family and eventually went back to school. We can be suckered in quite easily though. So I don't watch anything that may give me the "gimmees", or shop at all.
I'm happy with what I have, and I recycle, upcycle and yes, even do some garbage picking now and then. I still have a lovely house because I've put my time and energy into making it so on the cheap.

Thanks for the input guys (, and gals -inherently) it's good to see that other people pick up on it.

This forum is a good place for reasons like this.
