The happiest man in the world

...is a man named Alvin Wong.


According to this article in the New York Times, Gallup compiled some statistical data to determine what attributes contribute most to happiness. They found that people are happier when they are:
  • male
  • tall
  • Asian-American
  • at least 65 years old
  • married
  • has children
  • is a practicing Jew
  • lives in Hawaii
  • runs his own business
  • makes at least $120,000 per year
After a few phone calls to synagogues in Hawaii, Gallup found a tall, Asian-American Jew who fit all the descriptions.

Too bad I only have three of the nine qualities...
