Middle aged men are miserable gits

Yes, it's official: middle age is less fun than being a teenager or an older person. Men in their late 30s and early 40s are the least satisfied members of society, according to a survey, says this story from the BBC.

They are even more dissatisfied than teenagers and the elderly, a study for the British government found.

More than 3,600 people were asked to score their wellbeing on a scale of one to 10 as part of a survey for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Men, who rated their youthful happiness as 7.3, plunged into an early mid-life crisis with those aged 35-44 reporting satisfaction levels at 6.8.

Oh, lighten up guys - after all, you've still got old age to look forward to. Heh, heh.....
