Rot Grot un Flot (lack of diacritical accents owing to the limitations of this webmail client - ahem powers that be please fix that if you intend to run a global business) - Jimminy Christmas - Denmark - They are happy because they are IGNORANT, as in they don't know any better, as in IGNORANCE is bliss. They are IGNORANT and HAPPY because they don't really leave Denmark, much.
No one is happy who lives in a country where a sunlamp and a martini is all you need to have a party.
They also spend less money on anesthesia because THEY DON'T NEED IT.
They do, however, spend a great deal more money on alcohol because THEY DO NEED IT, desperately.
St. Jean Cap Ferrat, WTF (I am reminded of Tony Soprano referring to Captain Tebes). There is no more loser-filled recycling center in the entire south of France.
If fake tits were filled with hydrogen then St. Jean would make the Hindenberg tragedy look like a kid's birthday party.
The Cote d'Azur has been ruined.
Alas, no Europeans are happy.
The socialist Scandinavians disdain initiative, southern Europeans are so riddled with envy that it is breathtaking, the Germans, well, WTF is going on there? The Dutch are freaks, the Swiss hide their envy better and then strike like crocodiles, and the English, well, try to find a plumber in London.
The Japanese, quite rightly, say that happiness is way overrated and honor is of greater importance.
Anyhoo, happiness is portable, it is optional, and it is fragile. Personally, I choose to revel in it when I have it and mourn it when I don't.
Jockbod48 saidI've been going to Copenhagen since I was about 6 years old - and I love it there. The people I've met and have become friends with are very welcoming and giving. The city is cultural and there are fun places to see.
My favorite "happy" place on earth though would be St.-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, about 15 minutes from Monaco or Nice, France. Of all the places I've ever been, that is my favorite - a place where I am as happy as I can be. Relaxing there with plunging views down to the Mediterranean, plus the village and restaurants - all make it my favorite place where I'm happiest.
