The only thoughts provoked are:

1) What's up with the Hungarians?

2) I'd like to see the USA stats broken down by region.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I don't know. There's a lot of old people here, and if you ever visit a doctor, the waiting room will probably be packed with them. Especially early in the morning. It's where the old folks gather, or so it would seem.

In my experience a visit to the doctor tends to be fairly inexpensive for most things. Maybe it's a cultural thing, I don't know. It is true however that they end up living a long time.

It's: "based on the variance in radius from the countries geographic centroid"

I wonder if those are absolute numbers or per capita.

As far as the Dakotas go, there is an oil boom there, which brings young men to work in the oilfields.
