June 20 is the Happiest Day of the Year: Have fun today!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"June 20 is the happiest day of the year according to a math formula worked out by an academic.

Apparently, the feeling of optimism caused by the combination of lighter evenings, the prospect of holidays and memories of childhood summers is at its peak on June 20.

According to the research this has been worked out using the equation O + (N xS) + Cpm/T + He.

O stands for being outdoors and outdoor activity, N is connection with nature, which is in full bloom now, S is socialisation with neighbours and friends, Cpm stands for childhood positive memories, T is the mean temperature which is now usually warm, and He is holiday expected."

Quotation from Telegraph.Co.UK

I take the findings of this mathematician with a grain of salt, what does an egghead who spends all day working with numbers know about fun?

If Snoop Dog had come up with this formula after taking a few hits from his bong, I might give it more credence.

This is my interpretation of the formula: O = outdoors, N = nearly naked, S = skanks, CPM = certified positive memories, T = hot temperature, and He = heavenly excitement.

It`s a beautiful sunny June 20th in Virginia, and I`m going to walk my dogs and enjoy and girl watch.

I hope everybody has a happy June 20th!
