My advice for a happier life is to stop buying magazines.On the face of it they may seem an interesting or enjoyable read, but their subversive message is that you are inadequate, your stuff is crap and you need to spend more money you don't have.

I used to buy lots of magazines, I used to want lots of stuff, now I don't want stuff I don't know about and so I am much happier.

Magazines are always selling stuff to you. There are the obvious adverts, then there are the advertorials - advert that look more like editorial, those are pretty obvious too. Then there are the reviews, news, top 10s etc that totally look like objective editorial but are all, in fact, influenced by advertising spend.

Take any computer, car, or random hobby magazine. On the front page it might offer 100 tips on how to make the most of your kit in the recession. Inside it will tell you how crap your stuff is and that if you were SERIOUS then only the super-duper brand new top of the range kit is good enough. What you previously enjoyed will now seem second rate.

Womens mags are the same. They suggest fashion tips to get that designer look on the cheap - but it is still that expensive designer look that you'd crave. All hung on super-models photoshopped to perfection and then they sell you boob jobs and laser eye surgery.

Don't buy the magazines, save money, be happy with what you've already got, you don't need then to tell you what you need.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth, but do check it for secret compartments just in case it's full of Greek bastards waiting for you to go to sleep before they sneak out, rape your women and burn your city down.

» Complaining

Complaint about coupon complainers
If the online coupon code that a "friend" gave you on an internet site isn't valid when you try and use it then rather than shouting abuse at the company you tried to use it with why not go back to your "friend" and see if they haven't got their facts muddled up?

I have a hot tip for all you irish coupon hounds that have being bothering me - Anglo Irish Bank are giving away free samples of 10 Euro notes, just go up to the counter and shout the code "FECKINSTICKUP".

» Prejudice

Not me, honest
Look, I've got nothing against people with prejudices. I've got a lot of friends who are prejudiced. They're just like normal people once you get to know 'em.
