In point of fact, my marriage is partly based on this concept. Still going after 19 years, and I've only been stabbed or maimed a handful of times.
I’d like to see a national divorce of epic proportions. Everyone would be happier, at least at first.
FauxPas, How is it that you settled on your user name?I was like, no f*cking god damn way can that be MJ (Sounds like him yes... but what!?). It looked like he aged overnight compared to his videos from YouTube (maybe it's the facial hair that's messing me or something up, idk). Nonetheless, he is aging very well indeed
What do pro-vaccine and anti-vaccine people have in common?
Both will never be fully vaxinated.
Ha ha ha.
Omicron may require fourth vaccine dose sooner than expected, Pfizer says
The new omicron variant could increase the likelihood that people will need a fourth coronavirus vaccine dose earlier than expected, executives at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer said Wednesday. Boosters are likely to help control the variant, according to the company, which said early lab experiments suggest that the standard two-dose regimen still provides some protection against severe illness from the variant.
Albert Bourla, Pfizer’s chief executive, had projected that a fourth dose might be needed 12 months after a third shot. But he said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that the timeline might need to be moved up. One of the company’s top scientists recently said a fourth shot — possibly one targeting omicron — is likely to be necessary.
We need a crying emoji as “like„-buttonThe best jokes are true:
Pfizer = evil.
Seriously, do they really believe that people won't eventually wake up to why they're doing it? I mean, isn't it obvious by now that it's just a pure evil money grab propped by the government?
Past research has found that experienced well-being does not increase above incomes of $75,000/y. This finding has been the focus of substantial attention from researchers and the general public, yet is based on a dataset with a measure of experienced well-being that may or may not be indicative of actual emotional experience (retrospective, dichotomous reports). Here, over one million real-time reports of experienced well-being from a large US sample show evidence that experienced well-being rises linearly with log income, with an equally steep slope above $80,000 as below it. This suggests that higher incomes may still have potential to improve people’s day-to-day well-being, rather than having already reached a plateau for many people in wealthy countries.
Drawing on 1,725,994 experience-sampling reports from 33,391 employed US adults, the present results show that both experienced and evaluative well-being increased linearly with log(income), with an equally steep slope for higher earners as for lower earners. There was no evidence for an experienced well-being plateau above $75,000/y, contrary to some influential past research. There was also no evidence of an income threshold at which experienced and evaluative well-being diverged, suggesting that higher incomes are associated with both feeling better day-to-day and being more satisfied with life overall.
I didn't need a bunch of scientists to figure this out! A quick chat with a guy making millions per year followed by a chat with your average retail store employee will suffice.In other words, money CAN make you happier even if you cross the so-called "diminishing returns" level of it.
$75,000 being "maximum happiness?" Bullshit. Just more of that Great Reset type of nonsense.
Maybe. But $75,000 swinging a hammer and breaking your back from sun up to sun down is very different from $75,000 on a salaried work-from-home job, or better yet, in dividends...I think by maximum happiness, it really means optimal comfort.
Enough money to make you comfortable and not resent the system but not enough to let you stop working in any reasonable time.
