Yes especially when they've also been labelled the most suicide-prone depressed nation in the past as well  Wink

With all the Carlsberg, Tuborg and the stuff they sell in Christiania, are you sure this is true happiness and not synthetic?

Seen surveys in the past on it. Do some google searches on Denmark and Suicide and there are numerous links to items stating that Denmark's suicide rates are among the highest in the world.

Sorry !

I just found it. And that was back in 97. hehe
But its scary to see that we actually were one of the countries with the highest suicide rates.

So it means that people in your country are either deliriously happy or incredibly depressed - nothing in between !!

I have no idea man. I'm quiet surprised I must say. But on the other hand. It was back in 97. The danes were probably still ashame of the scandalous performance from the Danish National team in Euro 96 in England Big grin

I remember seeing the results of the same poll a couple of years ago, and Bangladesh ranked first. So we have proof that Denmark and Bangladesh are similar crackpot nations.  Wink

I think that the poll was done while you were in the USA. The Danes were deliriously happy that you had left the country.


Now if you done the poll again it would be back to the highest suicide rates that you are back in Denmark  Wink

Nope, not naked. I'll see if I can find it when I go home in August. I'll scan it

When you graduate "gymnas" in Norway, you become a "russ", which is a fw months of partying. "Russekort" is a little business size card where you can put funny stuff and pictures and stuff.

How about the kingdom of Bhutan and their very Buddhist (and not so very well spell-checked) concept of Gross National Happiness? They are small enough to be able to survey all of their citizens intensively or grant them an interview with a high lama at least. And very limited access to VISAs and the high cost of entry keep the depressed in Nepal and Sikkim.  Wink (The Dutch also made a great film of the Bhutanese soccer team playing the Montserrat team - now THAT'S something to smile about!)
