Unfortunately, it's a mistake to invest too much emotionally in children. Instead, men should be prepared to have their children removed from their company, care and custody with little or no notice if their wife decides that's what she wants to do today.

Duly noted. From this point forward I shall no longer an emotional investment in my children, as they could be taken away from me.

From this point forward I shall no longer make an emotional investment in my wife, as she could leave me.

From this point forward I shall no longer make an emotional investment in my friends, as they could move or be stricken with a tragic illness.

From this point forward I shall no longer make an emotional investment in my extended family, as they could die on me.

In fact, the only thing I can really count on is my money. So, I think all my future decisions will be based on the bottom line. Hell, my job could be outsourced to India. What kind of job couldn't? Hmm...furnace repair!

Thank you for helping me make some lifelong decisions! I now know the sure path to riches.

PS - I only had to pay roughly $6k for both my undergrad and my graduate degree, so although they were a complete waste, I think the financial hit was minimal. Please don't hold them against me when I come in as your apprentice.
