Better to be affluent than effluent.

Anybody ever tried Flowbee factory direct Also Flowbee deluxe with vacuum? Guess I wouldn't expect much "style" from it.

The people that don't have one think it's the funniest thing ever. The people that have one won't admit they have one but think it's great.

I think it's great.

A person is not affluent until she has "money out the wazoo". That would agree with the definition of money "flowing freely".

I just remember this TV ad that was run during the tech bubble of 2000. It brings tears to my eyes, thinking of how my portfolio was adding a 4-digit and most often 5-digit sum DAILY in the early 2000, and I did not even own any dot-com stock. Perversely, I felt quite scared, but was not able to overcome my greed in order to sell high.
