    Harm to children by family structure:

    If I've thought it once I've thought it thousands of times: if your marriage breaks up, DON'T bring another man into the house until your children are grown.

    Current support for autocratic rule. It's rather disheartening.

    Shame on Italy, and it hurts me to say that. Natural gifts aren't enough; you have to nurture them.

    Given how much olive oil Spain produces today, surely that has changed?

    Well, if they're not lying, this is heartening, although I'd like to see WHICH books they read.:)

    [IMG][/IMG]

    The only print books I read are things like texts or histories. For fiction I use e books.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    This is for men. Why the skew in eastern Europe? Cigarettes? (Italians and the French smoke a lot too, though) Drink? Food? Genetics?

    The differences in western Europe are small: 81 for Germany versus 83 for Italians. Women are even longer lived. That's why I had so many great aunts in their mid 90's when they died. I doubt I'll make it that long.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Good grief! Why are so many Brits involvent in their prime years? As for gender imbalance, it's easy: divorced women with children.

    That's a really nice site. I took a very basic wine course years ago, but I forgot what little I learned. :)

    Looking at the chart, I definitely prefer dryer wines. By the sixth from the left on the red wines it's getting too sweet for me. For the white wines I like them dryer yet.

    Of course, it depends what you're eating. If you're a Silicon Valley type, you could have Barolo one night with chicken, and Brunello di Montalcino the next night with beef.

    That isn't to say I don't like my vin santo with some cantuccini after a meal, but a little goes a long way.

    I also prefer to drink the dryer wines for both red and white. We're doing this wine tasting package that comes in a box of vials each month. I tried the same wine, from three different years. the taste changed significantly from one year to another. Though the starkest transition was from the first year to the second. It had gotten significantly better tasting. It initially tasted chalky, but then became much smoother.

    Eight ways to divide Belgium. Sorry I couldn't make it larger so it's easier to read the legends. The one on identity is interesting. The French speakers always identity as Belgian, the non-French speakers only during the football matches. :)

    The comments are quite interesting as well.

    This map explains a lot of why I have to close threads on this site. :)

    I certainly don't want to tell Pew their Business, but it's not about religion really. Most Italians, for example, couldn't care less. Again, why are Spain and Portugal so different?

    That also spills over into views of cultural superiority (e.g. the traditional us vs. the decadent them).

    Number of deaths in WW2 as percentage of pre-war population. Also pay attention to the pie graph. There's no comparison between the conduct of the Western Allies and the Nazis.

    How many of those Russian and eastern European deaths were Jews, I wonder, how many killed in civil wars of one type or another, and how many are the responsibility of Stalin-purging all his best generals, demoralization caused by the political commissars, starvation partly caused poor pre-war policies, lack of equipment. What a monster.

    Thanks Jarjar. After reading the synopsis and some reviews I borrowed a digital version from my library. If it's really good I'll buy a used copy for my library.

    I don't know how I missed it. That period of European history is sort of my "thing". Keep them coming. :)

    School grades in Sweden: natives versus immigrants. What surprises me is that the "natives" have slightly lower scores than some immigrants. Of course, it's sometimes the case that barring some special situations, it's the more intelligent and the capable who have enough confidence in themselves to go to a strange country and have to adapt to a new language, new customs, learn new skills etc. I'm sure the western European "migrants" were highly educated in their own countries. We have the same situation here. All of the Indians I've met who migrated here come from high caste, high education families in India. Of course they're going to thrive well and do well in school. It's a different thing when you open the doors and accept the "poorest of the poor" of any group.

    Do you spare yourself and your passengers over the pedestrians or vice versa?

    Look at the difference between two of the countries in East Asia.
