A very hard read from Hitch: http://vnty.fr/tguZRJ

Should a country make "happiness" the national goal, rather than GDP and economic growth? I like this idea. :-) Watch the video. It's how they do things over in Bhutan. :-) Most governments -- even when they're trying to quantify happiness or quality of life -- tend to use GDP as a key factor. Here's an article ranking the top happy and sad countries: http://yhoo.it/tUGMpm According to the article:

The world's top happiest countries are:
5. Sweden
4. New Zealand
3. Australia
2. Denmark
1. Norway

Top saddest countries in the world:
5. Yemen
4. Pakistan
3. Ethiopia
2. Zimbabwe
1. Central African Republic

I wonder what the people of Bhutan would say about this article? If I were going to run for President of the US, I think I'd enjoy creating a "Happy" party as opposed to joining the Democratic or Republican party. :-)

other intelligent lifeforms on earth that we are not aware of. And because birds’ brains are very different from mammal brains, it raises questions about what kinds of brains support intelligence. There are other contenders for considerable intelligence in mammals — such as dolphins and elephants. What they and birds all seem to have in common is that they are long-lived and have huge brains relative to body size. These birds have long ‘childhoods’, with lots of opportunities to learn from parents. And they are all highly social.
It has been argued that one thing that gives rise to intelligence is living in social groups. It means you have to think about what others are doing all the time. As mammals, we have overlooked the intelligence of non-mammals.
Nicky Clayton recreates Aesop's age old bird experiment in a Cambridge laboratory, with startling results.

If this is the desk of the future, I hope it doesn't come with that soundtrack. It will cost $1,300 -- some details from this story: http://on.mash.to/u6qlgk
