    I was joking about the weather. The article states:

    The report ranks countries on six key variables that support well-being: income, freedom, trust, healthy life expectancy, social support and generosity.​

    It's "miserableness". But your English is way better than my FInnish, so I'm in no place to really have a problem with it :cool:

    Nah,just send them off to see an Aki Kaurismaki film :lol:

    (Kidding aside Aki must be the most famous and well loved film director ever in Greece even his very early movies were huge hits during the 80s)

    I like Bergman, and his movies were pretty damn miserable.

    He's Swedish though, right?

    He's great! Even though I shouldn't be saying this, as we have love-hate relationship with Sweden.

    (Swedes are actually cool, but don't tell anyone I said that!)

    Aw, I'd wager a two-four and a "sorry" could cheer you up, eh?

    Have you seen the women in those countries? What’s the saying? Vikings didn’t bring back the ugly ones. :lol:

    I would think that substantial genitalia would have counted. If I were running that survey, it would have been in the top 3. Having substantial genitalia just makes you happy... I don't care who you are....

    Don’t get me wrong, I like snow. But this year was something else.

    I ran through 14 gallons of gas in the PlowJeep and never left the driveway.

    It wouldn’t start for the last storm. I mean it would NOT start. It finally occurred to me to add some fuel. Vroom! It took right off. That is too much snow!

    Lonkero! The evil grey assassin.
    The barman at my pub there makes me special ones - 1/3 pint gin topped up with 2/3 of the Long Drink from the pump.
    I'm kind of glad I'm far away from them:lol:
