How Happy Are You?

    Probably not much of a suprise, but people who live in warm weather places--Hawaii, Florida, are happier than people who live in the cold and pay a lot of taxes--Connecticut, New York.


    I wonder what effect the economic downturn would have? Would you trade sunny Florida for a job in Minnesota? I would say you'd have to.

    I live about as far north and west as someone can live while still living in "the South." For most of my teenage and college years, I couldn't wait to leave, but I really like it here. The weather is generally really nice, unemployment is low, and the cost of living is insanely cheap for the quality of life. I pay $325 for a small 1/br house (yes, house) that was completely remodeled in the past couple of years. As long as I'm single, I can't see why I would leave. I like where I live and save enough money to take a decent vacation when I want to.

    Arrogance is even more blissful.

    At least three of those states consistent show up consistently at the bottom of many education competence and funding measuring sticks, for what it's worth.
  6. I wonder is Pittsburgh would have been higher on the list if Zag didn't live there. He kind of throws off the curve. :)

    Louisiana? Really? Never would've guessed that.

    As long as you aren't a Redskins fan with plenty of liquor, ammunition and a large TV, who wouldn't want to live in Louisiana?

    Having lived in both the north and south, I just have a hard time understanding why anyone would live up north once they've visited the south.

    And on a personal note, I believe I am happier than many of the posters on the week 15 NFL thread right now.

    I moved South from the North for about a year. I like being around my family in a familiar area better than warm weather so I moved back when I got the chance. Although, I'm from a suburb close to a big city and I moved to a podunk place that was within an hour of a decent sized city where I knew no one. Just like anything, it's all realztive.

    When the Saints go back to 3-13, their ranking will tank. :)
