Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy (SNL)
I remember the time when I was a little kid and I overheard my parents talking about living hand to mouth and having no money. I knew what I had to do. Hide that piggy bank somewhere where no one else can find it!

How fortunate that we live in an imperfect world, we (women) are already blessed with the wisdom of owning a copy of the "Matrix". Hence, NO need to seek after the so called wiseman* …....

I agree, except there is a small glitch in your own line of thought. You ignored a very important assumption in your theory (maybe shortsighted by the sexist arrogance some men possess!! Alas!!!). In the real world, almost every woman loves the “Matrix,” as well: the hiatus between the real and the ideal is almost tending to zero in this case. Therefore, with that constraint taken off the equation, with "endure" replaced by "enjoyment," and with men and women in pursuit of the same wisdom, the equation can be formed slightly differently:
Men blessed with the wisdom of owning a copy of the “Matrix” + Women blessed with the wisdom of owning a copy of the “Matrix” = A perfect world :)

Presumptuous – maybe, since observation leads to presumption; sexist – definitely not. Considering the implicit statistics cited by Ima and Sabrina and not to mention the ingenious equation devised by Sabrina, I should revise my Deep Thoughts. So, here’s the revision:
In a real (or imperfect) world, every man would be blessed with the wisdom of seeking after those women who own a copy of the “Matrix” so as not to spend money on buying an extra one.
In that imperfect world repeated mutual viewing of “Matrix” would accentuate the enjoyment resulting in a perfect world thereof.

Now that's deep! Well done!! Although I'd suggest everyone should have his or her own copy to avoid conflict :)
