Nolan happier than me?

 

No.

No.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well I guess he is... :drink2:

Knowing I'm happier than you makes me all the more happy.

Wow, we made the list! Go us! I wonder what "happy" encompasses?

 

I'm not afraid to admit, I haven't even heard of a handful of those countries in the least happy list. I wonder if that's why they're so unhappy.

 

So there's an obvious trend in that happy list - what is up with all those European countries (mostly Scandinavian) being so happy? What's going on over there? Is it because of this?

Swedish girls, wimpy Swedish AOR and mad Swedish guitarists.

 

A bit too close to the North Pole, otherwise it's ok here.

Weird i thought Sweden had the highest suicide rate?! Maybe times have changed :-)

 

:lol:

 

I'd love to visit all those countries and all that, but are people seriously that happy in climates that cold? ;)

 

I've been to many of the Pacific Islands, like Fiji, Cook Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu etc. and I gotta say; those people are living in extremely basic circumstances, but they always look happy. Probably just a front for tourists, but I wonder if they were part of the poll. Yeah they lead simple lives, but many seem more than content with what they have.

Well, apart from those countries which seem to be stuck in the middle ages (Brunei, Qatar) what I see is a list that equates happiness with GDP, Not a very reliable list, in my opinion.

I think of Scandinavia and I think expensive.

I guess they must earn more (in line with the cost of living) but they aren't cheap places to visit.

Maybe that's why they're happy - few tourists :)

Same could be said about Australia, though, mate. Aren't we pretty much the most expensive country on earth in every single way? That aspect sucks hairy balls, but I still wouldn't live anywhere else. :)

I guess we are these days. Property prices, taxes etc

Dollar is good for US tourists at the moment.

I import a lot so it's kinda killing me at the moment.
