    Happiest in the nation

    Looks like Boulderites are the happiest people in the nation.
    Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index

    Is this why everyone is *****ing about us?

    That's certainly not a very happy statement.

    Let this be a lesson to you children. Smoking lots of weed might make you happier, but it doesn't make you a more understanding person.

    You're quite near sighted; the Huffington post is a reference to the article in Portoflio; division of the Business Journal. This may be a better reference for you.

    Take a look at the CO State Report

    Overall Rankings
    Colorado - 5
    Boulder - 1
    Ft. Collins - 3
    Denver - 36
    Colo Springs - 75
    Greeley - 164

    That's just rubbing salt in the wound for the Greeleyites.

    Huffpo names the source of the study. In the title no less. Reading comprehension is hard.

    A little tangent... In a John Hopkins Study, psilocybin (Mushrooms) has been found to "prompt positive changes in behavior and attitude that last several months, at least."

    Hey, maybe it can remove the stick from yur a$$, too

    Completely different study to be sure, but I like the Smart21 Intelligent Communities rating better.

    Boulder might have a high "Brain Power Index", but that doesn't mean they use it for anything productive, relevant or rational to the outside world.

    I'm thinking you are not happy if you have to pay for it.

    Somebody told me the other day that Boulder and Bend, OR share the same distinction, more pot dispensaries than Starbucks shops.

    I paid $18 for an all day lift ticket at Angel Fire. Made me very happy.

    The only time I'm not happy in Boulder is when I watch a slew of bikers hitting the hills for an epic day.. On a Tuesday morning. I love to hate them

    They interviewed me for this survey....for the whole thing.

    Los Alamos, NM would have been first but I don't live there anymore.

    But Los Alamos should have definitely won for the InTelleragent survey--they kicked me out to make sure they had a chance.

    the walmarts here are depressing, or amazing, or gross, lots of adjectives..... it's just a stream of fat people. (not that other walmarts don't have streams of fat people.....but it's harder not to notice here)

    i've discovered the layout is generally......church - old person community - church - walmart - crappy housing - farm - church - walmart - farm - more fat old people - hospital - farm - walmart

    i've only seen one roadie here in 3 months.

    HELL YES!! KC, you just went up many a notch in my book. I hate when I forget to specify and people are left assuming I went to that UNC. 11/11/11 can't come soon enough.

    I doubt it was the dog, I got one very similar. Never had an issue with him so that makes the other option look suspect.

    ???

    Why would I say that? I am always pretty logical and rational in my comments, whether or not you agree with them. I would be a little more witty than, "you suck". In other words, it wasn't me.
