I forget how many political scholars I'm friends with on Facebook until something horrific or controversial happens... But really, I'm not here to talk about my opinions on recent topics that have shifted my Facebook from happy pictures of puppies and vacations to intense debates about right versus wrong. I am here to share with you 8 happy topics, videos, stories you can talk about instead of politics to keep your Facebook positive, dinner conversations civil, and life a little bit happier.
