The Daily Stat:

Between 1985 and 2005, the number of Americans who said they definitely felt satisfied with the way their lives were going dropped by about 30%, and the ranks of the most dissatisfied rose by nearly 50%, according to a study involving thousands of people by Chris M. Herbst of Arizona State. The reasons appear to be related to Americans’ declining attachments to friends and family, lower participation in social and civic activities, and diminished trust in political institutions, Herbst says. The only good news: The rate of decline in satisfaction appears to have slowed during that two-decade period.

  1. I decided to check this out on a few websites I manage.
    On the first I was surprised to find all days were the same except a massive spike on wednesdays. Then I realised it was a university website and wednesday afternoons are free of lectures so students can play sports, or surf the web.
    So I checked another website, but I think that’s highly squeed by what days have interesting stories posted.

    You can get so much information about individual websites, it’s easy to get carried away reading into all the numbers.

    Gone are the days when I had to wait until 7pm for off-peak phone calls so I could connect to the internet, download the days e-mails, and then read them offline.
