I think you made this shit up. Nice try, though.

Not very convincing. Showing emotions (real or fake) isn't the same as having emotions. Some societies put a premium on being demonstrative, others don't.

America is happy?

We're one of the least dense nations in the world!

How can that be.

They're obviously kidding, or their data is wrong, as the inclusion of Canada suggests. Unless they did the survey exclusively during hockey games, there's no chance Canada is among the 15 most emotional countries.

Huh? Americans are the most depressed people I've ever been around. Never satisfied, nothing's ever good enough, and they're always grasping after novelty and more, more more... If you deem the fake "have a nice day" American smile as indicative of actual happiness, then you haven't been paying attention.

My dad had a depressed friend that moved in with us when I was in middle school. He took me to McDonald's for lunch. When the cashier said "have a nice day", Frank replied with "I'll have whatever kind of fucking day I want".

I'm gonna have to go with @7.

Brutally repressed women, religiously proscribed separation of the sexes, limited employment opportunities, & no alcohol?

Who would ever think that could make a culture unhappy?

"North Africans and Arabs tend to be unhappy."

Ugly people often are.

@10 - you are one of the most loathesome trolls on slog, and that's saying something.

You look like you must be very unhappy yourself.
