Money CAN buy you happiness
ASAP Science have done it again. Previously explaining what actually happens to your brain when your drink booze, the speedy science fact givers have devoted their latest work to an age old saying that makes us feel better about being on the breadline every month just before payday. This time around they're out to prove that money can in fact buy you happiness, if you're aware of how you spend it. Turns out it really is better to give than to receive, and making other people happy is proven to make you happier. So next time you're daydreaming about what you'd do if you won the lotto, take some time to consider their scientific advice and be more altruistic. You don't need that ridiculously expensive rug (unless it's magic, than by all means buy).
