    I find it impossible to believe California is 9th, I'd say 70% of the people I knew there spent most of the time complaining about cost of living, crime, traffic, ect. I myself cannot compare Southern Cal. to where I live now-Il, IA, border (ranking 27th and 31st) But the Midwest in general. Other than two months in the Winter-Everythings better! People are a million times nicer, no traffic, I make more money here, which combined with the lower cost of living means owning a nice house, compared to renting an apt. I could go on and on.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    I have never met anyone who has lived in Northern California that has a single complaint though.

    Re: America's Happiest States

    I live in Delaware.
    I've lived in South Dakota, Nebraska, Florida, and Delaware.
    I've been equally happy in all states...now, I'm happier depending on what I'm doing, hunting, fishing, golfing, but, I kinda do my thing no matter where I am.

    My observation, no matter where you live, if you have enough money to enjoy yourself, you will be more than likely be happy.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know

    Re: America's Happiest States

    This study leads me to believe that location does not play as big of a factor in happiness.
    We are on a 100 point scale and the spread in 8 points.
    Im sorry but .2 points on this scale is not convincing me that one state has happier people than the other. And if you live in WV you should have known you were suppose to move well before this study came out.

    True happiness comes from...

    Family
    Money
    Friends
    Sex
    A SB caliber football team
    Substances

    Thats because Humboldt county is up there, Seriously though, I went to High School (Jr. Sr.) in Crescent City, On the coast close to Ore. From the Bay area north-it's pretty rich, (wine country), Sacramento and Stockton have plenty of crime, and bad areas, Tahoe area is super nice, Generally though the north is a different world, It rains more than 2 weeks a year meaning less to no smog, Green grass which is not missed until you live in a semi-desert. Of course it's all up to the person, Like I mentioned before though, I wouldn't trade the Midwest for So Cal. They can have it.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.
