Default Happy contagion

A laugh can be infectious. You don't need a sophisticated study to tell you that. But does this happy contagion vanish as quickly as a smile? New research from James Fowler of UC San Diego and Nicholas Christakis of Harvard Medical School shows that happiness spreads far and wide through a social network traveling not just the well-known path from one person to another but even to people up to three degrees removed.

reminds me of how grumpy people can make other people's days worse...
I can see how this might be true as well.. *shrug*
(Reminds me of people taking their turns or being courteous while driving...
It's clearly worse in some places than others...)

I am not very good at the smiling game and I usually lose. Smiling doesn't remind me of grumpy tho. There is a theory that people really are couteous to one another because of the core belief that by doing so, it will be visited back upon them (non-religious) What goes around comes around thinking. If you do good, then good will happen to you.
