Who Is Gravity Jones?

jones |jōnz| noun: a fixation on or compulsive desire for someone or something, typically a drug; an addiction

Keeping up with the Joneses: Refers to “the comparison to one’s neighbour as a benchmark for social caste or the accumulation of material goods. To fail to ‘keep up with the Joneses’ is perceived as demonstrating socio-economic or cultural inferiority.” Like the concept of affluenza, it is a completely psychological malaise of measuring worth by others success and/or material possessions.
