Here's a bug I want to catch. The British Medical Journal, using statistical analysis, has found that happiness spreads from person to person - up to three connections. So if I'm in need of a little lift in my spirits, I can get it from my friend's, friend. I don't even have to know the person to catch their bug. This is much better than swine flu!
Also, having a happy sibling live one mile from you increases your happiness level by 14%.
A nearby friend increases your happiness level by 25%.
A next door neighbor 34%.
So my question is - how much do blogging friends increase our happiness level?
