My post made no claims as to my time spent in the countries under discussion.  It was an observation based on your absurd remarks, the Forbes.com article, my personal experiences, as well as the experiences over many years of people I know well.  Your response now is to ignore my statements and try to turn the discussion around to me, which is par for the course for you.  If you think you are going to get me to give up information about my life other than untraceable things for goons like you to read, think again.  Your absurd remarks earlier are what I would like you to address, not who or what I am.

How could you have any idea about what sort of achiever I am, over, under, or otherwise, based on anything I've mentioned here?

"And lie."  Upon what basis could you make this statement?

For your information, I've stayed in the Four Seasons in Jackson Hole, Las Vegas, AND New York City.  You are free to believe me or not.  You have no basis to say I'm lying.  Besides, it's immaterial.  You have made statements about other countries that prompted me to conclude you have no first hand knowledge of them.

Your quoted response above fails to address this conclusion at any level!

Here are your comments that prompted my post.

Let's start over and discuss your experiences that prompted them.

You can either click here or read below...

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy, I would think an old worn out queen like you would at least have a little more common sense.  All this time you've been waiting for your ship to come in and it's right there in front of you.  Finland!  Why are you still here, Nancy?  You'll have the perfect nanny state - womb to tomb - everything done for you, everything decided for you, somebody telling you what to do every step of the way!  What could be better than that for a helpless, insecure, frightened individual like you?  Those countries rated highest on the "happy" list because the people are all like you - helpless. They want the government running every aspect of their lives just like you do. And they got just what they wanted, so they're happy.  So my only question for you is this:  Why are you still here?

No Nancy, you haven't been to any Four Seasons Hotel. You're simply having delusions of grandeur again.

I miss the old days when they were just delusions of adequacy, don't you?

 

Now, as far as your other incoherent ramblings, please understand that I know far more about you than I desire to and leave it at that. I have no need for you to give up information about anything, my delicate little flower, you're an open book of scant perusal, barely cracked and cast aside.

So kindly put that in your Funk and Wagnalls. 

 

And "untraceable things"? 

Ha ha ha ha ha!

 

Seriously though, my little pearl, let us stick to the topic at hand and not travel down this road that leads only to a morass of battered vanities.

    rdgrnr,

    Do you feel better now?

    Since you seem to believe you know so much about me, and having stated many times that you flat out don't like me, it's really puzzling the way you keep trying to focus the conversation on me.  But that's an issue better tackled by a psychologist, which I am not.

    So, now that you've had a chance to catch your breath after your outpouring of purple prose, let's get back to the original question we were discussing.  Namely, how does a humble person like yourself from up in them 'thar hills manage to speak with such authority about why the citizens of the ten countries rated as the happiest by agencies including our own CIA would describe themselves as happy?  You speak with such conviction that one is led to believe you must have spent considerable time among these people.

    Please tell us how you became so well informed on this issue.

    It has to be an exciting tale!

      I don't know what your point is. Are you studying to be a travel agent?

      And my purple prose was only in illustration and tongue-in-cheek remonstrance of your own in the past.

      How about we just stick to the lottery and that way you can avoid another full-blown, avatar-changing, nervous-nellie, fluster-fit?

      Whataya say, Sparky?
