I Like a Clean Brain Myself

In a shocking MTV study, it was revealed that money doesn’t buy happiness.

Young people in developing nations are at least twice as likely to feel happy about their lives than their richer counterparts, a survey says.

Indians are the happiest overall and Japanese the most miserable.

According to an MTV Networks International (MTVNI) global survey that covered more than 5,400 young people in 14 countries, only 43 percent of the world’s 16- to 34-year-olds say they are happy with their lives.

MTVNI said this figure was dragged down by young people in the developed world, including those in the United States and Britain where fewer than 30 percent of young people said they were happy with the way things were . . .

“The happier young people of the developing world are also the most religious,” the survey said.

Poor happy saps. I suppose the joy is a direct result of all that brainwashing.



  1. Religion gives people a purpose in suffering and promises them an eternal reward. Who wouldn’t be happier if they believed that?
