I'd have jumped out of the class window if we had been forced to undergo psychology and even worse, philosophy classes at school. Yuck.

 

I'm all in favour of more native history though, especially in a time where more and more and more of the kids in school don't get any 'native history' (meaning, from the country they're living in) from home, since they're from different places.

I loved AP psychology at my high school, most kids did. Psychology is very popular among students in the US. I would have loved to have taken a Philosophy class, though my religious classes essentially were philosophical classes in high school.

Apparently the Netherlands has one naturalized native from both Micronesia and Nauru :d Zero from the Pitcairn Islands, which is probably a good thing considering the abuse scandal over there. I'm quite surprised to see six people from the British Indian Ocean Territory and even eight (!) total from Ascension, Saint-Helena and Tristan da Cunha :yikes:

I think it should be canon that all Polish men carry a 5 foot long Narwhal tusk.

Well, Tusk used to be a Polish PM for about 7 years, so....

Fun little video about :BHU

 

 

I have read that researchers think that the people of Bhutan are some of the happiest, but it’s inconclusive like the guy says in the video. I’d love to visit Nepal and Bhutan though. Bhutan is arguably one of the most, if not the most, successful socialist countries in history. I do know that the government is a bit more suppressive than it seems in the video, and like every country their are some serious social problems behind the scene. The story of Bhutan’s history, politics, and economy is very interesting and worth looking up if you have time.

One of the best traditions in American professional sport. All the ready bears are taken to children’s hospitals as Christmas gifts for the children there. I also the Michigan (college) American Football tradition where after the 1st Q, everyone turns and waves to the children’s hospital (which overlooks the stadium).
