Study: 33 is the Happiest Age

Here’s a wildly simple, profoundly interesting question: At what age are you happiest? According to a recent survey, the answer is 33.

Friends Reunited, a U.K. website, found that 70 percent of respondents over the age of 40 said they did not find true happiness until they were 33 years old. Curious to know why?

“[That age] is enough time to have shaken off childhood naivety and the wild scheming of teen-aged years without losing the energy and enthusiasm of youth,” Donna Dawson, a psychologist, told Fox’s Washington, D.C., affiliate. “Innocence has been lost, but our sense of reality is mixed with a strong sense of hope, a ‘can do’ spirit, and a healthy belief in our own talents and abilities.”


As the site pointed out, Jesus Christ was crucified at age 33. Oh, and “33-year-old celebrities like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine and Katie Holmes seem to be enjoying a wealth of success right now.”

Even non-celebrities agree with the findings of this study. ”It’s the sex, definitely,” Christine Possemato, a 35-year-old from Springfield, N.J., told the New York Daily News. “You’re hitting your stride. You’re a lot more confident and you can attract younger guys.”

Tim Tebow’s Passing Yards Evokes Bible Verse in Game

Tim Tebowed and Denver rose as one. His performance also borrowed a little magic from another famous book. The devout Christian’s stat line in Sunday’s game mirrors the numbering of the Biblical passage that Tebow at times had painted on to his black eye paint during his career at the University of Florida — John 3:16.

The passage reads, according to the New American Standard Bible, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Officially, Tebow passed for 316 yards against the Steelers, completing 10 of 21 pass attempts — meaning he passed for 31.6 yards per completion. After his final pass was caught and brilliantly taken downfield by Thomas, Tebow shrugged off three bad weeks — when he threw for just one touchdown and four interceptions — and took a knee and prayed in his classic style.


“First and foremost, I just want to thank my savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ,” Tebow said at the postgame press conference. “I am so thankful for the platform God has given me.”

Next up for those on the Tebow bandwagon, a trip to New England to tackle Tom Brady and the Patriots in the AFC divisional playoff game on Saturday.
