Case one: I have 5 bucks in my pocket and I am at whatever happiness level I am at for that day for whatever reason.

Case two: Same as case one, but I happen to find a buck on the ground. Happiness level raises just a tad.

Case three: Case one plus I find another 5 bucks on the ground, doubling what I have on my person. I eat at Red Robin and my happy level has increased more than case two.

Case four: Case one plus I win 50 million dollars in the lottery after taxes. Happy level is OFF THE CHARTS!

there seems to be a mathematical correlation between the amount of money and EC's happiness, thus disproving the hypothesis that "money doesn't buy happiness".

yep, I would imagine not a lot of sad faces when people see the winning lottery number on their ticket.
