Why I will not live in Italy...or Bulgaria

Roommate Tamara fed me a great procrastinating tool- the King of all stat sites! If you go here, you will find all kind of interesting stats from around the world. And so, the number one reason I will not live in Italy (followed by some other stats I found interesting)...

Percentage of students who report high noise level and disorder in classes (2000):
#1 Italy 46%
#2 Finland 42%
#3 France 42%
#4 Norway 39%
#5 Sweden 38%
#6 Belgium 36%
#7 Canada :)
33%

You could have guessed this one...

Percentage responding that they were proud of their nationality:
#1 United States 77%
#2 Ireland 77%
#3 Australia 70%
#4 Canada 60%

Why you should think twice about settling down in Bulgaria...

Percentage responding they are not happy or not very happy:
#1 Bulgaria 62%
#2 Moldova 56%
#3 Belarus 54%
#4 Ukraine 52%
#5 Russia 49%

And the explanation for your cheerful Venezualan neighbours...

Percentage of people claiming to be very happy:
#1 Venezuela 55%
#2 Nigeria 45%
#3 Ireland 42%
#4 Iceland 42%
#5 Netherlands 40%
#6 Philippines 40%

Oh well....what's a couple of marks?
