Taking a poll: where should I live/work this summer?
The recipe for happiness:
According to this article, a German Scientist has discovered the recipe for happiness: 5 compliments to every 1 insult. So if I’m interpreting this correctly, in order to make someone happy you just gotta follow up every personal attack or criticism with five kind statements, real quick like. This will come in extremely helpful the next time you really need to get something off of your chest. It could go something like this:
“I gotta tell you, you’ve got the most vapid personality out of anyone I’ve ever met… but your hair looks nice, your breath is usually fresh, your ears are perfectly symmetrical, you’re a safe driver, and your posture is above average.”
See? You get your point across, and in the end… no harm done. Hooray for science!
