This is a life-affirming thread that's for everyone who's happy and who wants to share his happiness with the world.
[Disclaimer: Reading this thread may cause feelings of sappiness.]
What are some of the reasons that you are happy?
I'll start: I'm happy that I live in a country where I can watch the Superbowl, or not. Or go to get a gourmet meal, or drive anywhere I want, or post anything I want on the Internet.
I'm happy that the West is so advanced, that we have friends in the East, and that the chances of war with countries other than Iran or North Korea are rather low.
I'm happy that I can track the progress of our dozens of space probes from NASA and ESA, and that we know more about the universe than ever before.
I'm happy that science is still rational, as opposed to politicized.
Most of all, I'm happy because of my family and friends and all the love, friendship, and support they provide.
