    I couldn't help but notice, Uber Fuhrer, that you said hanging out with friends doesn't seem very fun. Ever tried it? I think it might be more fun than you think

    Emotions are hard to convey online, so just know I didn't mean that to be cynical.

    Also, I don't think the "joy" in others' suffering is a real joy, but just relief from the pain you feel from hating others.

    I'll admit I get simple joys and laughs when I go through the Photoshop jobs here. Pretty hilarious stuff.

    Hmmm. I'm sort of stupidly happy. I find it very easy to be joyful about simple things. I'm glad for a food, a bed, to have cats....But then, I think my life experiences haven't been the American Average.

    When I am unhappy, one of things I've learned to do are Gratitudes. When I get to feeling down, I will lie in bed and think of all the things that I'm grateful for, and grateful to be able to say "Not yet" about. So I would say gratitude is a key component to joy.

    I also really enjoy walking barefoot in the grass when the dew is cool and sweet, and listening to the morning song of the birds.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

    Xbox Live was my medium -- for a good couple of weeks, my friends and I played the XBL Arcade version of Catan. Splendid fun.

    Master difficulties in life and appreciate the challenge that you went through. Whether it's becoming friends with co-workers you used to hate, (or who hated on you), doing that difficult task that used to take for hours in a matter of minutes or adjusting to overcome character flaws and personal short commings. When you humbly accept your weaknesses, learn to make peace with your burdens, and look thankfully at the new chances to succeed that come with each new day, you'll become closer to a lasting joy.

    Nice!

    I agree. A lot of times we're stuck with a set daily routine and a fixed circle of coworkers, family, and acquaintances. Getting a new perspective on an old problem, finding a way through some of the clutter, or even just learning how to live in the moment and enjoy the day and the people around us can be a real source of satisfaction.
