    People with higher intelligence are less happy


    So what do we truly want? To be intelligent and unhappy or not intelligent and happy? I am trying to decide.

    By the way I am feeling very happy

    ^^^^ This. I envy all the morons everywhere, oblivious of all the chit going on, Not a care in the world, Forest Gumping their way thru life. Others are worried about China, Ukraine, the economy, the market in the toilet etc.

    Intelligent people know how better things could and should be, dumb people are too stupid to understand. Ignorance is bliss.

    Yep, the happiest people I know are completely uninformed and oblivious about so many things in the world. A really great example are kids - they are so happy because they haven't learned about how F-ed up the world is and all the problems they will face.

    I have a sister that lives a really safe lifestyle. She's a really smart college teacher (physics), totally set financially with retirement, etc. No kids or family to worry about but she's super-worried about her health and germs and things like that and basically unhappy. Almost as though she's run out of things that actually pose a threat to her so she subconsciously makes up things to worry and be be unhappy about.

    I'm much less "set" that sis. I probably make close to the same money but work in a volatile industry where my income goes up/down and have a wife, four kids and all the stress and BS that comes along with that. I'm often worry and wouldn't describe myself as overly happy.

    In the end 99% of the people on this board really don't have real things to worry about. As in we really don't have threats to our health or lives. We have "First-World Problems" as I like to describe them.

    Unfortunately there is no choice to be made on both counts.

    Either your inteligent or your not and either your happy or your not.

    people think they are intelligent because they have an opinion about what they see on TV

    "i'm informed about important issues !!"

    meanwhile family life is a nuclear dumpster fire

    most blissful motherfukkers on the planet think their votes count though i love seeing the retards line up at town hall

    I'm an IT Mainframe Operations Analyst in real life, trust me when I say I wasn't fooling around when I leave the office with a migraine type headache from analyzing why a certain program failed for instance.

    The universe is expanding.
    We are all going to die.
    But I don't think we are all going to die because the universe is expanding. At least not in any current human's lifetime. Do you?
