Happiest nations
May 24, 2012 05:09AM
It always seems that the social domocracies win hands down, but then they have institutions that serve ALL the people.

In order, Denmark, Norway**, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Israel*, Finland, AustraliaCanada and Sweden

* Bogus because they obviously did not consider the Palestinian people.

** When Norway pops up I always remember the Minister when he was told they won the award his reply was “Obviously from someone who has never spent a winter in Norway”

that is bullsh-t

i spent time with swedes and filipinos today. the ship captain was a swedish female (very rare!)

my job allows me to spend time with lots of nationalities

happiest -- far east smaller countries

least happiest -- former communists

swedes and the like are in the middle

all generalizations...

Yes, and where was Lichtenstein? I guess they don't consider Lichtensteiners people. Bigots!

Actually there was about 185 nations that they failed to mention in this report.

What the fvck does that mean?

One can say I was educated in Europe and on the other had one could say I went to an American DOD of Dependents High School in Frankfurt Germany.
So details TX rather than bull shirt. You BS when the truth would serve you better.

And many of the people I know from the Philippines express a much diifferent view, but they are all professinals and college grads so WTF do they know?

that means you have the benefit of knowing someone with real, boots-on-the-ground daily interactions with many nationalities

the wise would use the resource, not belittle it

if you know germans, i would take your words as gold...more valuable than some nyc bullsh-t

but that's the difference between you and i

Yeah, I'm not too big on those kinds of studies.

I'm also unimpressed with things like Grammys, Oscars, Tonys, People's Choice, Golden Globes, Nobels, Pulitzers, Halls of Fame, and Walks of Fame (did I miss any?)

I LIVED in Sweden for a time.
The people there were much more satisfied with their government.
And happier with their lives in general.
And they pay much higher taxes.
But they get a lot back for their money.

now THAT is good info

the swedes i've met have been happier than the communist spawns, koreans, and indians...on par with the norweigans.....and somewhat behind the uber crazy filipinos. the pinos are a riot.....and almost always occupy the lowest strata of the ship hiearchy. doesn't phase em

the worst offenders are easily the russians, followed by the russian satellites. hard people...

Who can say what the deal is? Is happiness so all-fired quantifiable?

Quote

Worldwide surveys have consistently ranked the Scandinavian countries — with their generous family-leave policies, low crime, free health care, rich economies and, yes, high income taxes — as the happiest places on earth. But this happiness has always been accompanied by a paradox: the happiest countries also seem to have the highest suicide rates.

One wonders what constitutes happiness...

Quote

Denmark has the highest rate of belief in evolution in the Western World. In addition, Denmark is the third most atheistic country in the world and the website adherents.com reports that 43 - 80% of Danes are agnostics/atheists/non-believers in God.

A 2006 article entitled Animal bordellos draw Norweigans the Norway news website Aftenposten reported:
“ Neither Denmark nor Norway has a prohibition on sex with animals, as long as the animals do not suffer.

On the internet Danish animal owners advertise openly that they offer sex with animals, without intervention from police or other authorities, Danish newspaper 24timer reports.

And for any who may think the lefthand path acutally is a pro-female road
Quote

China has a reverse ratio, the only country in the world where more women kill themselves than men! The rate for men is 13 (per 100,000) and that for women 14.8.

Conservapedia is kind of like wikipedia, but without any regard for the truth.
Similar to the comparison between Conservatives and sentient human beings.

It's not impossible to reconcile. Perhaps seeing all their fellows commit suicide makes the atheists happy?
