Gallup has completed a study which lists the happiest states and unhappiest states. You may not be surprised at the state where people are happiest, but you may be surprised at how different the other happy top ten are.
Happiest: Hawaii, North Dakota, Minnesota, Utah, Alaska, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Hampshire and Montana.
Unhappiest: West Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Delaware, Ohio, Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Tennessee, and Nevada
Florida sort of surprises me because people go there in droves. Maybe that is why the people who actually live there are unhappy, too many tourists clogging up the roads and stores and attractions. I also think it may be because Florida does not have good pizza and I say this from personal experience, being in Florida this week. Chicken wings are weirdly prepared as well.
How can Missouri be unhappy and Kansas be happy? Ah. Kansas keeps beating Missouri in BB.
