Agreed. It just makes me cringe ever so slightly. Shame

Likewise. Like you're meant to feel a way about it, or else ashamed if you don't.

Christ, it's taken me ages to 'see' that. I've been staring at it trying to figure out what I was looking at and getting nowhere and now it's just clicked like a Magic Eye print. I thought Africa was the sea.

That housed a 1700 year old statue of Buddha (once the largest standing statue in the world). It was blown up by Taliban in 2001

That's bloody depressing. That's a different statue/location though. The one above must be another victim.

Yes probably, I assumed it was that one but the gap to the top of the cliff face is too short.

ETA- Anyway the skate school is a good thing.

Maybe because it's black and white, but they all look like they are having a miserable time.

For some reason that was one of the things I'd always wanted to see. Then the Taliban blew it up. cnuts.

During WW2, rationing meant there were no sweets or treats for the kids. Oof.

Against that, because the rations were carefully calculated to provide a healthy diet with enough nutrition if you ate all of your allowance, and people mainly did use all of their ration because they were hungry, people (as a whole) have rarely been as healthy, before or since.

Do we? Those children pictured, depending on what year it was taken will now be in the 70's if still alive. Full scale rationing will only have been over 10% of their lives.

Also
"The last couple of years on that graph, there is a possible slowdown," says Colin Mathers a senior scientist at the World Health Organization (WHO) says.
"But it's hard to tell - we need a few more years of data to see. It's possible that some of the reductions - particularly in cardiovascular disease associated with reductions in smoking, in control of blood pressure particularly - have reached a saturation point.
"In Australia or California, for example, smoking rates are quite low - they could go lower, but it might not have much more impact on death rates. Perhaps control of cholesterol or blood sugar might kick in and start to further improve life expectancy. On the other hand, we're seeing increasing levels of obesity and less exercising at population level."

We'll only know how accurate that graph was in 50+ years time, if you read the text.

Those 70-80 year olds ARE those children, will today's Twizzler-scoffing 7-8 year olds live just as long into the 2070s and beyond?

If so, how much of the increase in average longevity can be attributed to healthier diet/exercise/lifestyle and how much to medical advances over the last and next half century?
