    The "denmark is the happiest country on earth" meme:

    “Culture?” says Paul McCartney. “This isn't culture. It's just a good laugh.”

    It doesn't provide any measure of psychological well-being? Where are they getting their claim that Denmark is the happiest country on Earth?

    I do agree that we should be more like Denmark (plus, they gave us Legos), but I don't see anything to support the claim that they are the happiest country on Earth. How are they measuring that?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I dunno, but there are all sorts of ranking on happiness, like this one: World Happiness Report - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Interesting. Apparently Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and the UAE have the U.S. beat.

They are based on a list of survey questions on emotional experience the day before the interview: 1) Did you smile or laugh a lot yesterday? 2) Did you experience the following feelings during a lot of the day yesterday? How about enjoyment? 3) How about happiness? 4) How about worry? 5) How about sadness? 6) How about anger? The answers to the first three questions reveal positive emotional feelings. The answers to the other three questions reveal negative feelings. We use the first three questions to construct a score of positive emotions, which is essentially the number of “yes” answers. The score has four steps from zero to three. Zero means that the respondent reports no positive experiences; three means all three positive experiences are reported. In a symmetrical manner, we constructthe score of negative emotions based on the three questions about negative emotions.
    I suppose this is a very good measure of happiness.

    This is the link to the report, if anyone's interested:

    Actually wait, I did figure out something that was wrong with the Harry-Yoda-Luke-Gandalf-Dumbledore-Frodo-Picard meme! There is no universal hero archetype character in Star Trek that Captain Picard would be talking to. He gives commands to various different characters, but I can't think of one specific person who would be 'The Hero of the Quest' archetype. I dunno, maybe Riker could be a hero archetype, but not a questing sort of hero.

    The problem with this one isn't very obvious -

    "Everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth." Mike Tyson
    “Culture?” says Paul McCartney. “This isn't culture. It's just a good laugh.”

    This one is not only worded badly ("less"), the quote is just plain wrong.

    "Everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth." Mike Tyson
