Happiness Is Contagious; So What the Fuck Is Your Problem?

December 7, 2008

The happiest thing ever

A new study says that happiness is contagious. The research showed that people who were surrounded by individuals who were happy, were more likely to be happy themselves. Thanks science. We here at RBM fully support this finding and have made it part of our daily incantation to recognize our responsibility to contribute to the happiness of mankind by making sure you, the reader, leave the site feeling happy (if we weren’t on Santa’s nice list we’re a shoe-in now) .
