I disagree completely!! I live in one of the so called 'Unhappiest Cities' and I know a lot of happy people!

Makes no sense.

Yeah, people basting in 100-degree temps with 100% humidity in LA are really happy.

pointless. No actual information about how subjective data was collected or how the cities were rated. A remarkably skeletal article. Plus, Detroit as #7 most unhappy? I figured that city would be a shoe-in for first place. And New York? Come on. I don't buy that for a second.

Pretty slack, guys.

Anybody notice that none of the cities mentioned (except Corpus Christie) are in the Western half of the US? And why are the top 5 "happiest cities" all in Louisiana? I got a funny feeling the author grew up in New Orleans...

Seems like a pretty biased article to me!

Awesome. Will keep on hand. Thanks.

I agree with Jan N.I'm not stressed, & anyone this stressed as these articles sound, should not …

I only scored 69%, but I don't think it's important to know the precise answers... We are in trouble…

Chocolate matcha bars - think about the market for those.
