Outer oblectation...

[edit 17:45] Snow, ice and cold beats sun, sand and heat in the happiness stakes it would seem; or as Bloomberg tells us "Happiness seems to be most abundant a long way from the equator"... ..."The 10 happiest countries are Switzerland, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Canada, Finland, Netherlands, Sweden, New Zealand, and Australia"  ... and "Except for war-torn Syria and Afghanistan, the 10 unhappiest countries are all in Saharan or sub-Saharan Africa" in the World Happiness Report 2015, measuring not GDP/GNP but gross national happiness [GNH]. The UK is just off the left hand chart at #21.
