Lebanon, 88th happiest country in the world!

Look there are two ways of looking at this - one: Lebanon is the 88th happiest country in the world. Two: Just like Seahaven in The Truman Show, it was elected "Best Place On Earth". Actually, since I am (among other things) an economist, I can understand the criteria of the ranking. Norway, Denmark, Switzerland and Iceland round up the top 4 but apparently with the statistical errors each of the four countries could have held the top slot. Finland completes the top 5. But remember, Lebanon has been voted "Best Place On Earth", despite the passport issue and the so-so ranking in the happiness index. Bah, at times I fee we are living in The Truman Show.
