If You’re Happy and You Know It…

June 20, 2009

Found, Lloyd

Happy Father’s Day, Dad and Dad!

National Geographic suggested that this map shows that Hawaii is the happiest state, but I think it clearly shows that Nebraska is, if not the happiest, at least the least sad.

Texas seems confused

I attribute this mostly to the fact that we have more of a representational democracy than the rest of you guys (except for Maine).

    Could it have something to do with the cows-to-people ratio of each state?


    • Lloyd Said on:

      I was going to jump on board the cows-to-people ratio bandwagon, then I looked at Wyoming. This also happened to shoot down my “more people = more unhappy” theory.

    Does it look to anyone else like they colored Hawaii wrong? Shouldn’t it be the lightest shade of sienna?


    • Peggy Said on:

      Agreed. Hawaii should be lighter, right? Now I don’t know whether to move to Hawaii or NE…Are they purposely trying to mess with us? Oh wait, this is a US Government Report…never mind.

    Um. Apparently I really wanted everyone to know what I was saying.

    That or all the add-ons now available at LandL.com have made the uploading slow enough that I get very impatient and hit the Submit Comment button multiple times in a vain attempt to make it go faster…


    • Beth Said on:

      Ok. Now can you talke this one off…because it doesn’t make any sense anymore. And thanks. 😀

        Haha!! I don’t know how many times I commented and for some reason it didnt’ get posted. I end up not rewriting it cause I couldn’t remember what I wrote.

    Thank you!

    This map is full of lies!!! It shows that the county in Iowa where my parents live is stress free … pure white. However, I know for a fact that this is the most stressful area known to man, hence we rarely visit.


  6. Lloyd Said on:

    Why is that one county in south western Nebraska so depressed?


  7. Curt Said on:

    I am glad they kept this map down to 4 colors (actually shades of brown). One more shade and it would be discriminating against the color blind. I would have to call the CACBD and report it.

    Gosh! Do you see that little triangle on the western side of Colorado? That’s Delta County!


  9. Lauren's mom Said on:

    Remember, “If Mama ain’t happy, NOBODY ain’t happy.” (At least nobody in Delta County.)
    Yes, that soon will change!
