    How could you be happy in such a place!?

    Just saw this league table this morning:

    World's happiest countries - Yahoo! Travel

    I am wondering how you could possibly be happy in places that don't have any mountains or even proper HILLS!!! (Denmark, Netherlands)...

    Answers on a postcard please...

    Maybe keep the politics out of this? Hill-hate is bad enough!

    Freedom is one thing that makes people happy. People there have freedom to move or even leave their country.

    It's a loop -- happiness leads to more success, success leads to more happiness.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    From my observations of the happiest-looking people in Holland and Denmark, they would have trouble leaving the chair, let alone the country! (see rockcrusher's post above...)

    Overheard looking out at the audience from the stage at a Robert Palmer concert Stockholm 1980:

    "Blondes man! They're ALL blonde! They're everywhere!!!"

    Good point...

    I bet many men are happy for the same reason.

    Norway has hills, mountains. That's how they send competitive skiers to various world competitions like the Olympics. Not all of Northern Europe is the Netherlands.

    Now we know why Tone's is so much fun to hang out with.

    You are completely correct Malibu, Norway does have a bunch of mountains, i have even skied down a few! Thats why I mentioned Holland and Denmark as sand dunes are a ***** to ride up...
    As for Tone being fun to hang with, I feel that most of the indigenous wildlife in Oz would beg to differ!

    Doh! I sorta overlooked number 2 and 8 on the list. You're right. What is wrong, or should I say right with these folks?
