Girls’ Night Out: An Almost True Story

I recently read a study that said fun is more fun when it's shared with friends.  While this may be something we know instinctively, scientific validation is always reassuring.  Now when someone in your group asks "Are we having fun yet?" you can roll your eyes and point to the data.
