la furia: mexico in 7th?

even the way we complain on social media about the government is enough to rank us the saddest nation in the world.
yes , mexico is 7th. I expected it to be 5th though I know the scandinavia countries deserve that position. Forget the drug violence that happens in mexico, mexicans are really happy people. They live together(friends and family).

A poor villager that is happy and smilling in the midst of lack,poverty and disease is doing so out of ignorance or resignation to fate....true happiness comes from enjoying the good things in life that money can buy..house,car..good education..gud health care..etc..nobody will truly be happy in poverty..

Nigeria happiest people? Phew yea-rit.

I've been to all the countries listed above. I agree with Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico and Sweden. Switzerland? Coughs" I don't wanna sound like a racist that I'm not" I wonder why Colombia is not on the list, I have been to a lot of cities in colombia including some islands down there called Haq/nuqui"hope I got it right" there you will find the happiest people on planet. Surrounded by ocean, they life mostly on fresh fish and plantain oh and beer smiley. The friendliest people alive.

Olamyyde: @op, if u live in nigeria, u should know the answer to ur question.
1) poor power supply
2) increased noise pollution caused by churches
3) Difficult in gaining admission for d average student
4) increased terrorist attack by boko haram
5) increased corruption
nigerians are definitely not happy


Its funny how church noise pollution ranks number 2 in ur own rating of problems....what have u been smoking?...?

Nigerians are not happy though most think they are.
Re: Are Nigerians Actually Happy People - Myth Or Fact by chei: 9:03pm On Jul 01, 2013
Nigerians are sad people, very sad peoples. There is sadness and gloom all over the country. Its written in our faces, our emotions, interactions and the atmosphere.
The hatred in Nigeria is trifling.
Happy people are not
1. Tribalists: Most nigerians are tribalists
2. Greedy: Some of the greediest species of humans can be found in Nigeria, we are never contented with our status quo, we always want more and more even to the detriment of the society and fellow humans.
3. Wicked: The jungle justice mentality in Nigeria is a major source of our unhappiness. Remember the Aluu 4, a community rounded up a group of four innocent boys, stripped them, hit their heads hard with clubs and sticks till their brains fell outta their skulls and set them on fire. WICKEDNESS!!
4. Unforgiving: Nigerians don't forgive! Always praying for their enemies to die by fire

Nigerians can never be happy until we change and purge ourselves of these evil and anti-human traits we possess.
