On the other hand, Koreans, Japanese, and to a lesser extent, Asian-Americans, are less happy in general, but recover their emotional equilibrium more readily after a setback...

We shall see about that. :)

Being spoiled is what my parents called it. Good Grief.

It’s not “race”, it’s culture.

It’s really hard to be grateful and discontented at the same time.

A better metaphor is the person who gets used to Super Plutonium “elite flyer” status, and automatic first class upgrades.

Then I... er, I mean this person flies fewer miles and gets dropped to merely Plutonium status, no more free upgrades.

:-) ==> :-(

Spoiled, you say? I think not. Super Plutonium status, like “happiness”, is an inalienable right. Right?

There maybe a correlation, the correlation is culture and happiness, NOT race.

Hypocritical as heck to say, but sorry, Japanese people are WAY more likely than most to make huuuuuuuuge generalizations on the basis of race.

Why can’t you import rice from the USA..?
