    I kind of felt like "hmm... this may be kind of accurate" until I got to the ethnically diverse page. So, countries in Africa where 95% of the country are black people are more ethnically diverse than the US, where I had 5 neighbors, each of whom was a different race? I call statistical manipulation of data. Something`s not quite right here.

    @DavidXJ Ethnicity and race are to separate things.
    An Ethnicity is a group having a shared heritage while race is more of genetic thing.

    6th page - Child Poverty Rates.
    So if they are so poor why is there an Obesity Epidemic among the poor in the US?

    @ DavidXJ - you`re confusing ethnic diversity with race.

    Map #6 I`ve never understood "childhood poverty". Is it rich parents who don`t spend any money on their kids? A "Flowers in the Attic" kind of thing?

    I guess "Poor FAMILIES" doesn`t tug at the "heartstrings" enough to extract money from charities...

    Map #9 Yeah, I`m with @DavidXJ on this, although @joaped22 offers a possible reason? I don`t buy it.
    NOT for Saudi, Pakistan or Afghanistan either...

    Map #13 LOLZ! India and Jordan!!

    On #6, I think the key is that this is measuing incomes below the "federal poverty level." I don`t think the statistics measure the benefits you receive if you`re below the federal poverty level. If you combine income plus the value of the benefits, perhaps the picture changes?

    Federal poverty level in 2014 ranges between $11,670 for a household of one to $40,090 for a household of eight.

    Nah, the US is pretty sweet. In my experience, it`s inhabited by some of the damn finest humans on the planet.

    Canada`s better though. Heck, I like Canada so much, I emigrated here. It`s basically America but without the (sometimes) bullsh*t.

    I find it interesting that Indians, while some of the most broadly spread emigrants in the world, are rated the most xenophobic when it comes to who they don`t want living next door.

    I completely agree with you Davy On Canada. My spouse is Canadian and we live there half the year. I love having a dual citizenship with Canada. It`s better for traveling too when I have my Canadian Passport. I get better treatment when travelling aboard.
