since you put it that way...

"On a scale of 1 to 7, where 1 means 'not at all satisfied with my life' and 7 means 'completely satisfied,' the people on Forbes magazine's list of the 400 richest Americans average 5.8--the same as the Inuit people in Greenland and the cattle-herding Masai of Kenya, who live in dung huts with no electricity or running water. Calcutta's slum dwellers score only a little lower, at 4.6."

this rocks my social justice-development economist heart!

That...may well be the most interesting fact I have read all day! Seriously! I'd probably rate my life about that level too, oddly. :P
