The Happy Mappy.

~ Via my beautiful charming friend Sarah: “I’m so close to happiness…just a kidney sale, some hooking, and a surrogate pregnancy away.” For much more: Huffington Post: “Here Is The Income Level At Which Money Won’t Make You Any Happier In Each State.”

“…if you live in a place like Hawaii, where the cost of living is relatively high, a household needs to make $122,175 per year before some extra cash doesn’t really translate into more happiness. In Mississippi, by comparison, the threshold at which more money stops making you happier is a lot lower: $65,850 per year.”
