J. Frank Parnell: Just realized the top 10 are all the countries that haven't been in a war or any sort of conflict since WWII, except for Canada.

/and someone digs up an obscure conflict to prove me wrong in, 3..2..


Well, Australia has been involved in every US war since WW2.

ModernLuddite: It's hard to be depressed when you're drunk 99% of the time.

/This country drinks.
//It drinks a lot.


Actually if you drink most of the time you are guaranteed to be depressed.

OK, I'll bite.

Australia:
Korea
Malaya
Vietnam
Timor
Iraq
Afghanistan

That's just off the top of my head - no disrespect to any of our forces involved in conflicts I've not remembered.


You bit a little too much. Only one of those is in the top 10.

7. Finland
8. Austria *
9. Iceland

I'm not sure if this is a joke or if you just can't read.

SirMadness: We live next to the Lindsay Lohan of countries...and we're lead by the George W. Bush of the prairies...(only semi-intelligent, and therefore capable of much greater havoc.)

I'm flabbergasted that we got ranked that high.

These happiness surveys are bunk. How do you determine if someone is happy, or not? By trying to place something as complex and multi-faceted as happiness into a single distinct emotional category we are doing it a great disservice. Should the joy of spending time with a loving family be considered the same as schadenfreude?

Also, how do you tell if someone is happy or not? You can't go by what they say, since they might not be being honest (and may not be aware of whether or not they're being honest). Even then, people are happy one day, sad the next, for all manner of reasons.

Global happiness surveys are silly wastes of time and money.

Obviously neither of you live in a province led by the NDP.  Compared to the rest of the world our economy is doing really well. Our public health system is miles above most other countries. Canada consistently ranks among the top places to live. We're not losing banks at a record pace. Hell our top banker went to Britian to try and fix the issues there. If you think Harper is doing a shaitty job you weren't very aware of the country s situation when the Libs or Dems were in power.

Martin kicked ass and pulled us out of the Mulroney debacle. As for the NDP, as a BCer I still have a bad taste in my mouth over them.

I don't know about you, but my happiness is heavily influenced by who my neighbours/neighbors are and how they act.

If you live next to a trailer park long enough, you're going to start getting a little grumpy.

I'm sure your news has covered  all the fine stories that  our NDP leaders keep us in the news with. As someone who still has close ties to north west BC that area seems very polarized attitudes towards the elected officials both before and after the last election. Mostly over pipeline issues.
