Thing is..."some" people might enjoy those things. It doesn't have to be you. If "some" people enjoy it...then it does make people on average happier.

Also at a certain point(multi-millions)...wealth means you don't have to work for anyone else...and are beholden to almost no one and can work or not as you please for something you truly enjoy.

Maybe a better way to say it is...Money removes a lot of misery...buys a little happiness (your $105k point for arguments sake) with the possibilities opened up for more happiness if you apply it properly?

Also thinking you are happy...is a little bit of fake happiness too \:p

This TED talk is about a Harvard study that has been going on since the 1930s. They found that those that had good relationships reported being happier.

I think everyone in this thread is focused too much on the money that you're ignoring what it means for your relationships. Yes, money makes life easier, but it might not lead to strong relationships. There are some people who would only associate with you because of the money, or want money from you. It could make it harder to know who you can trust, which probably would not increase your happiness.
