Wow. Who would have thought that? I’m sure thankful that researchers up at the Max Planck Institute in Rostock were able to finally make this major scientific breakthrough. The tons of German taxpayer money that went into this study were certainly well spent. Now maybe something will finally be done to stop poverty here. Apparently no one has been doing anything about it up until now. Thumbs up to you, researchers!

In a related story (see the link at the bottom of the same article), it has also been determined that the older the human body gets the more it weakens and – now get this – that this decline is inevitable.

Armut, Arbeitslosigkeit und schlechte Bildung gehen in Deutschland mit einer deutlich verkürzten Lebenserwartung einher.

  1. Christopher Columbus is the ugly American of the Week? I saw poor Chris’ crypt . He is not interned in Arlington National Cemetery, but in Seville. Spaniards have today off, as Chris’ birthday is celebrated in Spain, as well as in the U.S. You can even argue that Christopher Columbus is an European Union hero. After all he he brought European values, imperialism and religious hegemony, to the American continent.
