DUH!

http://now.msn.com/sex-makes-people-happiest-per-new-study

*sigh* I've lost count of all the "studies" of what a bunch of people around the world has enjoyed for years. Like, eating healthy food is good for you and other dumb stuff like that.

Also, a life surrounded by alcohol and sex sounds pretty shitty in retrospective even if is enjoyable in the moment... but hey, what the fuck do I know.

Man you take everything way too seriously. It was posted tongue in cheek and sex/booze can easily be juxtaposed with games/food or sleep/reading and an article that basically says "if you do what you want you'll be happier!" is ridiculous.

It's a discussion topic, not necessarily meaning we have to respond all like "lol, fucken A+, that was ill-arious Yoda, good one!!.
I'm passed my hardcore party days anyways.  I'll have a few beers. but I don't get shitfaced anymore because I don't enjoy the stupor (I certainly don't prefer beer over a game or shop session). And I'm sure I'd hate myself if I prioritized sex and alcohol over the enjoyment I get from my actual and personal hobbies; sex is a helluva perk but I don't count the minutes till the next time I get it.  Granted, I don't speak for everyone, so if the majority love sex the most than that's the way the cookie crumbles I guess (I was merely offering my input earlier and now).

The list itself is just a pretty whack, it sounds like they asked the local college to respond.  "I love sex and booze; I hate studying, cleaning, going to lecture, and being sick".  I'm surprised about "gaming" (guess I wasn't aware so many people in "their demographic" game), "meditating and religion" is awfully vague and, oddly coupled, and also surprisingly high-ranked (and poorly explained from this type of survey).  The rest are DUH -- like going to work, class, and commuting sucking ass.  I don't doubt sex and drinking can be pleasurable, but I also don't like the article because it shows 20 of only 30 potentially un/pleasurable items that people could select, and again, we have no demographic which could tell about half the story too (and also, how does one become part of a "cell-phoned sample"?).


...

....how the fuck is "eating" not on the list? >=/

The only reason the concept of pissing your life away drinking and fucking doesn't sound desireable is because you know you can't support said lifestyle. If you were a multimillionaire (or a hippie bum), you'd probably have a very different outlook on life to begin with, and much less concern regarding things like responsibility, the driving force behind us not simply catering to our own primal desires all the time.

To be fair though, I do not like drinking much, myself.

TASTY!

The stupid fucking thing doesn't say "a life dominated by drinking and fucking is the singular root of happiness." It says that a group of horny asshole college aged kids think so to which I said "DUH."

No shit one shouldn't spend all of their faculties in one area. I enjoy sex, and I do booze it up (maybe too frequently), but I also walk to the damn lake and stare at it for an hour and walk back every now and then.

I don't know what to think about this...
It's real simple, this guy wants to tell the government to fuck off by giving idiots abroad a way to create a death-dealing device that can go anywhere. Even better is anyone actually giving this guy some form of press coverage to further spread his idea and concept.

Congrats man, you've got the new terrorist weapon of choice, AND it's eco-friendly.

Doesn't it break after three shots?

Aren't you better off with a 3D printed knife?

Or just a normal knife?

Or a pressure cooker? And I don't even mean a pressure cooker bomb I just mean beating someone to death with a pressure cooker.
