What were you doing on June 23?

Quick, last night how did you feel? Happy? Try to remember because it could have been the happiest day of the year. I am no longer amazed at what passes for serious scholarly work these days, so I will just accept the fact that Cliff Arnall, at a British Univ. has devised an equation to identify the happiest day of the year. And according to his rather "simple" reasoning, it is June 23. The unhappiest day of the year was January 23.

The equation [O + (N x S) + Cpm/T + He] factors in outdoor activities, nature, social interaction, and pints of beer. Nah, I made that last one up. But I've been to the U.K. and there are some very happy people in the pubs. Arnall should have surveyed a few pubs on his way home from university to double check the happiness quotient of the chaps stumbling out the door of the Kings Arms or the Her Lady's Petticoat.
