    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    It was a nice headline, but not what the article stated. They only surveyed 20 countries and about .002% of the world's population.

    Not really a surprise that the smartest countries also happen to be high income low population countries.

    I thought this was common knowledge.
