Mostly Scandinavian countries at top.

11. Israel (7.301) is happy? Constantly under threat of annihilation by some of its surrounding Arab neighbours. Hezbollah rockets fired frequently into Israel.

16. Mexico (7.088) is happy? Do the survey organisers know the crime + murder rate + drug addiction/trafficking problems in Mexico?

Bhutan's Gross National Happiness is the worst bullshit excuse for not governing properly and taking care of its citizens' material welfare.

Singapore shooters are ranked 7th happiest DSLR owners in the world in ICMA (international camera manufactuers association) survey.

Not bad at all. :)
Any ranking on the camera made?

No wonder I am not happy. Not just camera but also the lenses. Haha

I was looking at d700 then d800 came along. I realize they have a d4 and was told d4s is round the corner. So confusing one.

Happiness requires maintenance. When the next product cycle comes around, it is time to renew thy happiness

From all this, you know that the UN survey list of "happiest countries in the world" is worthless.

16. Mexico (7.088) is happy?



This is the news about Mexico 2 hours ago 14 Sep 2013. Do they look happy?

From a 13 Sep 2013 report. Guess who are the rioters? They are teachers. There must be some genuine grievances.

In Israel, if the rockets didn't land on their head, they should be happy :)

In Mexico, they can get high easily with widely available drug :) Why shouldn't they be happy ?

Most times, you have to make your own decision to be happy or not. Of course the environment plays a part. In general, Singapore is a great city with no major natural disasters. If you are not too picky, I don't see why you should not be happy.

Always look at those that are worse off than you and you will realize how lucky you are. At least we have our camera and Internet. Haha
