Making Britain Less Miserable



While the rest of the world (not counting the extremely cold bits, and Wales) is enjoying a wonderful summer, Britain is as usual moaning its way through flu, freezing wet weather and a variety of crises that must have Daily Mail hacks wringing their wet little hands with delight. Now a bunch of scientists want us all to start grinning like idiots in order to conduct an experiment to prove that happiness is infectious, like the clap. The full story did bring a wry, twisted smile to my face, but for all the wrong reasons.

    Stroke a dog?????????? While you have a big grin on your face….the dog’s owner might run away in terror….and I wouldn’t blame them. Still, it’s a good idea to have a positive attitude, but that doesn’t mean you have to walk around looking like a total wanker.

    Thanks for posting link. Reading it cheered me a bit.

    Okay, while they may be on to something there, am I the only one who thinks it odd that the suggestion “Don’t listen to the news” come to one’s notice via a news site?

    Subconciously they hate themselves. Seriously though at least they did not edit/censor the article.

    Haha. There’s a bit of truth in there! Good suggestion though – British press makes everyone miserable. Take the 10 day challenge – don’t read newspapers and don’t watch TV for 10 days. It actually makes you happy.
