I think you'd be interested in True Ancestor's post today about the US being the 23rd happiest nation on earth. The top five are Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Iceland, and the Bahamas. He's also got a nice link to a Buddhist discussion of happiness.

"When a person is told that Buddhism is a way of self-examination, he focuses his attention on examining the real nature of the self. Then he discovers that the self is nothing worth loving or cherishing. Thinking this way, he becomes less self-attached, less self-centered."

Sounds a bit like the point in the update. "Grow up." However the alchemy of that is understood.
