...around 5300 BC, everyone in Central Europe was suddenly farming and raising livestock. The members of the Linear Pottery culture kept cows in wooden pens, used rubbing stones and harvested grain.I THINK THE SUBSEQUENT BIG AGRICULTURAL INPUT WHICH EFFECTED CIVILIZATION WAS USING CAFFEINE DRINKS INSTEAD OF FERMENTED DRINKS.
Many academics felt that invasion was the reason behind the rapid shift. However, new excavations in Turkey, as well as genetic analyses of domestic animals and Stone Age skeletons, indicate that around 7000 BC, a mass migration of farmers began from the Middle East to Europe.
These ancient farmers brought along domesticated cattle and pigs. They produced fresh milk, which, as a result of a genetic mutation, they were soon able to drink in large quantities. The result was that the population of farmers grew and grew.
Later, scientists discovered that the first milk drinkers lived in the territory of present-day Austria, Hungary and Slovakia.
There are also signs of conflict. The intruders differed from the continent''s Ice Age inhabitants "through completely different genetic lines," explained Joachim Burger, an anthropologist from the University of Mainz in southwestern Germany.
The more primitive existing inhabitants looked on in bewilderment as the newcomers deforested their hunting grounds, tilled the soil and planted seeds. This apparently upset them and motivated them to resist the intruders.
It is clear, however, that the dairy farmers won out in the end. During their migration, they encountered increasingly lush pastures, a paradise for their cowsd. An added benefit of migrating farther to the north was that raw milk lasted longer in the cooler climate.
The new food was especially beneficial for children. In the Neolithic Age, many small children died after being weaned in their fourth year of life. "As a result of consuming healthy milk, this could be greatly reduced," Hamburg biologist Fritz Hoffeler speculated. All of this led to population growth and, as a result, further geographical expansion.
Burger is convinced that milk played a major part in shaping history, just as gunpowder did much later.
Awakening Councils have quit or been dismissed from their positions in significant numbers in recent months, prey to an intensive recruitment campaign by the Sunni insurgency, according to government officials, current and former members of the Awakening and insurgents.OBAMA IS LOSING US IRAQ AND HANDING IT TO BIN LADEN.
Although there are no firm figures, security and political officials say hundreds of the well-disciplined fighters — many of whom have gained extensive knowledge about the American military — appear to have rejoined Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia. Beyond that, officials say that even many of the Awakening fighters still on the Iraqi government payroll, possibly thousands of them, covertly aid the insurgency.
DEADLINES AND WTIHDRAWALS ARE NOT HOW YOU WIN WARS.
WHETHER BY OBAMA'S DESIGN OR BECAUSE OF HIS SHEER INCOMPETENCE, IT MATTERS NOT: IT'S HAPPENING ON HIS WATCH.
THE BEST SOLUTION IS VOTING GOP IN NOVEMBER AND IN 2012!
A fifth day of protests in France against proposed pension reforms has brought 825,000 people on to the streets, police say, although unions put the figure at 2.5m to 3m.
The government wants to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62 and the full state pension age from 65 to 67.
THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO WORK BEYOND THE AGE 60!?!?!
WHAT A BUNCH OF SPOILED BRATS, (enfants gâtés in French).
A DISCONTENTED LAZY RABBLE.
Via Hot Air:
If it passes - and because the 112th Congress is not likely to have override majorities - much of the damage will be hard to undo, then this will make Jonestown look like a church picnic.The Hill
Republicans complain that they are being shut out of negotiations and are sounding warnings that Democrats will try to jam a $1 trillion bill through Congress immediately following the midterm elections.
I think the left will try this and more because - after their huge losses in November - they will see the lame duck session as their last chance to force America to become a euro-socialist state.
Amnesty and carbon taxes are also probably on their lame duck agenda.
WARNING: If they do it, then there will be an armed insurrection in the USA that makes the recent rebellion in Iran look like a... church picnic.
This is a warning, not a threat.
The reaction of mainstream citizens to this attempted socialist revolution will make the Tea Party seem like a ... well, a tea party.
- SHOULD BARNEY GET A JOB AS A LOBBYIST FOR FANNIE MAE?
- CAN ALAN GRAYSON GET A GIG AS SHERIFF IN CIUDAD JUAREZ?
- WHAT SHOULD NANCY PELOSI DO? RUN FOR MAYOR OF SF?

- JOHN DINGELL? RON KLEIN?
- ARLEN SPECTER? CHAIRMAN OF THE BENEDICT ARNOLD SOCIETY?
- BLANCHE LINCOLN? CHIEF LEGAL COUNSEL FOR NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR UGLY WOMEN?
- BABARA BOXER? A MADAM.
- PATTY MURRAY? SNEAKER SALESPERSON?
IT'S THE LEAST WE COULD DO.
Maybe they've had to take notice of the growing opposition - even overseas - to persecuting Wilders for having the courage to take on Islamofascism.

TONIGHT'S LEAD STORIES FROM ISRAEL REVEAL THE TRUE STATE OF THE MIDDLE EAST, THE "PEACE PROCESS", TURKEY, AND WW4
- Authorities announce plans for 4,000 units, 240 beyond Green Line; Erekat: "We strongly condemn the decision."
- PA President Abbas meets with Hadash MKs; says any deal requiring recognition or land swap out of the question.
- Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized what he called the "double standards" of the United States, saying that "Washington is not ready to condemn the state terrorism of Israel against Turkey, which means that the USA is supporting international terrorists who killed our citizens in international waters," he told Pakistan's The International News, the paper reported on Friday.
When asked about Turkey's diplomatic relations with Israel, Erdogan said that "despite diplomatic relations, Israel never behaved like a civilized country with Turkey, and I cannot give any advice to my Pakistani brothers; it is their right to decide about making relations with Israel,” according to the report.ERDOGAN OPENLY STATES THAT TURKEY STANDS WITH DAR AL ISLAM AND NOT THE USA OR NATO OR THE WEST.
Additionally, Erdogan said that "Israel must apologize to Turkey and pay compensation. If it does not, it will be doomed to remain isolated in the Middle East," Press TV reported on Friday.
Speaking of regional geopolitics, Erdogan said that Pakistan, Turkey, Afghanistan, and Iran have a common future, emphasizing that the security of each country is dependent on the security of the others, but saying that enemies are creating problems for each of the four countries, according to The International News' report.
IT'S TIME WE TREATED TURKEY ACCORDINGLY.
IT'S TIME WE DUMPED FATAH AND THE RIDICULOUS "PEACE PROCESS".
FOR THE WEST TO WIN WW3, ALLIES LIKE ISRAEL NEED OUR TOTAL SUPPORT.
AND OUR MUTUAL ENEMIES NEED TO FEEL THE UNFETTERED POWER OF OUR WRATH AND THE FATEFUL LIGHTENING OF OUR TERRIBLE SWIFT SWORD.
BRITAIN PROVES HOW SOCIALISM AT HOME LEADS TO APPEASEMENT ABROAD: CAMERON TO CUT NEARLY 10% FROM MINISTRY OF DEFENSE
It is believed the final settlement puts the cuts to the MoD's £37bn a year budget somewhere in the region of 8%, although with the "black hole" in the defence budget inherited from the Labour government, that could equate to rather higher real cuts.
... Earlier this week it was believed at the MoD that a settlement was close at about 7%, but the Treasury came back demanding cuts of 10%.
Military chiefs said that would damage the front line in Afghanistan, something Mr Cameron had previously made clear he was not prepared to do.
... although the exact settlement figure has not been revealed, it is something the defence secretary "can live with".
... the Royal Navy stands to lose a significant portion of its surface fleet, while the order for the joint strike fighters for the carriers will be scaled down substantially.
WITH A WEAKER MILITARY AND LESS ABILITY TO PROJECT POWER, BRITAIN WILL BECOME MORE PLIABLE AND... DEFENSELESS AGAINST CHINA AND RUSSIA AND JIHAD.
AND LESS ABLE TO HELP OUT US OR NATO OR ANY OTHER NATION IN THE WEST.
WHICH WILL GLADDEN OUR ENEMIES ABROAD AND AT HOME.
- LEFTISTS AND DOVES HAVE ALWAYS SOUGHT TO ENLARGE THE WELFARE STATE IN PART TO SQUEEZE OUT THE MILITARY AND MAKE US DEFENSELESS.
- IN BRITAIN THIS STRATEGY WORKED.
THIS WE CAN PREVENT OBAMA FROM DOING THE SAME THING HERE BY VOTING GOP NOVEMBER.
Leftists have long argued these rates are bad, unfair and a gift to the rich and should be rescinded.
They did so in 2003 and 2004 and 2005 and 2006 and 2007 and 2008 - as tax revenues went up year after year.
Yes, we had deficits between 2003 and 2008, but they were declining until the Oil Bubble and the Housing Bubbles burst in 2008 - no mere coincidence.
In fact, in 2007 the US federal government received 2.569 trillion in revenues - THE MOST EVER.
In two short years, Obama has rung up two HUMONGOUS deficits of 1.6 and 1.4 trillion dollars. As much as ALL 8 years of the Bush Administration, and a rate which is more than twice as much as during the entire Bush presidency.
We have larger deficits now then in 2007 IN PART because revenues have declined, and revenues didn't decline because tax rates declined.
Revenues declined because the economy is shrinking and fewer people are working.
WE CANNOT TAX OUR WAY OUT OF THESE OBAMA DEFICITS.
If we want to decrease deficits all we have to do is get the economy to grow again; this will increase revenues ands decrease outlays; outlays will be decreased because the federal government outlays more during recessions as government dependency and welfare expenses increase during recessions.
On top of the natural increase in these welfare outlays, the Obama Administration increased outlays believing that it would forestall a depression: they felt that the federal government had to be a spender of last resort in order to keep aggregate spending as high as possible.
This was a mistake.
Not only did most of the spending go to unnecessary pork barrel boondoggles (which mostly benefited Democrat Party Machine cronies), but most was on unnecessary projects with Zero multiplier effects. Remember: if multiplier effects were real then the USSR would today be the richest nation on Earth.
Obama's average annual federal budget is 1 trillion dollars higher than Bush's worst year.
If we want to cut the deficit it only makes sense to cut this trillion in new unnecessary spending; it makes sense to raise taxes.
Revenues will ONLY go up when the economy grows.
Growth is what we must seek.
The left's long sought after "soak the rich" goal will not reduce the deficit because they will slow economic growth.
Slowing economic growth hurts the poor and the working poor the most. What working people like me need is a growing economy with more opportunity, not an economy based on government dependency.
We can undo the Obama spending debacle and spur the economy to grow quite easily: JUST VOTE GOP THIS NOVEMBER.
PERHAPS A LIFE AS INTERESTING AS THAT DESCRIBED IN ROY BATTY'S SOLILOQUY - AND MADAME LA GIMP'S MIRACLE.

Netanyahu has given a reply to this, describing Ahmedinejad's hatemongering as "curses and ephithets". But it's clear that Lebanon is going to become a hellhole again very soon, waiting to unleash a pandora's box upon Israel, and that we'll have to fight back.

For 2 years, Rahm was Obama's chief of staff.
Obama was the US Senator from Illinois before becoming POTUS. Obama got that job from the Chicago Machine. Before that, Obama was am Illinois State Senator from the Chicago Machine... (BTW: Michelle Obama's father was a Chicago Machine Alderman).
Before that, Rahm was a Congressman from Chicago. The Machine gave Rahm the seat that was formerly held by Rod Blogojevich who gave up the seat when the Chicago Machine made him Governor of Illinois.
So if the Machine wants Rahm to be mayor of Chicago, then he will become mayor of Chicago - whether the people of Chicago like it or not, and despite the fact that he has never run a successful business or even been a successful executive of any in any operation private or public.
Despite the fact that he doesn't meet the residency requirements.
Rahm certainly did an awful job of running Obama's WH the last two years.
If elected, Rahm's Chicago will make Detroit look like the Elysian Fields.
The threat of global jihad is real; therefore alerting citizens of the threat is not false and IS protected speech.
When that weirdo preacher in Florida announced that he intended to burn the Koran - and his announcement was met with threats from Muslims all over the world, and by appeasement/dhimmitude/submission by many politicians and bureaucrats - this proved that the threat is real and his action was useful and helpful.
Those who characterize anti-jihadists as the primary problem - as the inciters - and who excuse Muslims (and call Islam a "religion of peace"), ignore 1400 years of global jihad against Buddhists, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Baha'is, Jews, Christians, and even internecine genocide between Muslim sects. In all of recorded history, no ideology has murdered more people or enslaved more than Islam.
We should no more condemn the burning of the Koran than condemn the burning of Mein Kampf. We should no more tolerate Islam than Nazism.
And we should remember that as evil asd Nazism was, Nazism was less evil than Islam: Nazis didn't destroy any art nor routinely disfigure and enslave women or deny them an education.
True Islam and modernity do not and cannot coexist.
Only one will continue to exist in the coming decades: either the West will submit or Mohammedanism will go the way of Nazism and Marxism.
In the magazine article, Mr. Obama reflects on his presidency, admitting that he let himself look too much like “the same old tax-and-spend Democrat,” realized too late that “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects” and perhaps should have “let the Republicans insist on the tax cuts” in the stimulusWE KNOW OF ONE SHOVEL READY PROJECT - AND EVEN HAVE A PHOTO OF IT.
I SAW THEM AT NOON - THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF THEM.
THEY LOOKED LIKE BALLOONS TO ME - EXCEPT THEY WEREN'T FLOATING IN A UNIFORM MANNER: SOME WERE STATIONARY WHILE OTHERS WENT SOUTH AND OTHERS WENT EAST; SOME WENT UP AND OTHERS DOWN. ARE WIND CURRENTS OVER MIDTOWN MANHATTAN THIS COMPLEX? MAYBE/
THE LAST TIME I SAW SOMETHING JUST LIKE THIS WAS 9/10/01 - THOUGH ON THAT DATE THERE WAS ONLY ONE. GULP.
This hateful imam has cursed [former MP and Islam critic] Ayaan Hirsi Ali, [filmmaker and assassinated Islam critic] Theo van Gogh and [Iranian-born law professor] Afshin Ellian. And he has said the most terrible things. He shouts louder than a pig. I’m not going to pay him a single dime.Nor should he even bother going to the kangaroo court that's collaborating with this Islamofascist criminal in an effort to stifle free speech. This does tell however, how European courts are going to need serious restructuring to prevent dangerous criminals from exploiting them. That's something Wilders' own party needs to make clear in their coalition agreements in the parliament.

SARKO MUST REFUSE TO GIVE IN - AS REAGAN AND THATCHER REFUSED TO GIVE IN- IN ORDER TO SAVE FRANCE, AND SECURE HIS PLACE IN HISTORY.
I THINK HE WILL SUCCEED.
Even though the synod was called to discuss the flight of Christians from muslim-occupied lands, the bishops decided to attack Israel. In particular, the new pledge that Israel will require of new citizens: a pledge of loyalty to a Jewish and democratic state. It was this that upset the patriarch.
What has this got to do with the Catholic bishops? The Israeli authorities are quite happy for them to have their little disagreements amongst each other at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Rabbis don't complain about Catholics taking an oath of allegiance when they become new citizens of the USA!
All this seems to be a strange way of discussing how to help fellow Christians who are being murdered and raped daily by followers of the "religion of peace", and work out why they are leaving muslim countries. (...) Why are they having this meeting now? Why not years ago, because this is not a new phenomenon?

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, fresh off what was widely viewed as his “undiplomatic” address to the UN General Assembly last month, told his visiting Spanish and French counterparts on Sunday that before coming to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, they should concentrate on the problems in their own backyard.I think there's a point there. They probably want it to happen too.
“I don’t expect you to solve the problems of the world, but I certainly expect that before you come here to teach us how to solve conflicts, you will deal with the problems in Europe and solve those conflicts,” Lieberman told French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos, who arrived on Sunday for a day of talks in Israel, followed by a day of talks in the Palestinian Authority.
Lieberman said that after solving the conflicts in the Caucasus and Cyprus, and after making peace between Serbia and Kosovo, then the Europeans can come here and “we will listen to your advice.”
“In 1938, the European community decided to appease Hitler instead of supporting Czechoslovakia and sacrificed them [sic] without gaining anything,” Lieberman said.
“We will not be Czechoslovakia of 2010. We will ensure the security of Israel.”
Lieberman said it seemed as if the international community was trying to make up for all its failures in solving conflicts around the world by forging an agreement between Israel and the Palestinians in one year.
“What about the struggle in Somalia, North Korea, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan and Sudan?” he asked. “Instead of talking now with the Arab League about the future of a referendum in Sudan, or discussing the explosive situation in Iraq in 2012, the international community is applying great pressure on Israel.”
Lieberman said that while the international community was talking about bringing about calm in the region, it would likely cause the exact opposite and “bring about an explosion like what happened after Camp David in 2000.”
And what problems can be found in Europe's backyard? Islamofascist enclaves, honor murders, rapes perpetrated against women for not wearing a headscarf, anti-semitism, death threats against cartoonists who draw Mohammed, and even terrorist threats, something that's become much more possible recently. Are they going to deal with those crises first, or not? Lieberman's quite right to bring that up.
Earlier in the day, Moratinos and Kouchner met with President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and opposition leader Tzipi Livni, and heard less strident messages.This is disgusting. And even Europe's own public needs to make this clear to its elected officials.
Nevertheless, in those meetings as well, the two foreign ministers were told that just as the international community played a role in getting the PA to enter direct talks with Israel last month, it must convince it of the need to show flexibility on the settlement moratorium issue now.
Even before the duo’s arrival, Israeli officials relayed Jerusalem’s displeasure to Paris and Madrid at their recent decisions to upgrade the status of the Palestinian delegations in each capital to “mission” status.
The French took that step in July, following an upgrade of the PLO presence in Washington to “delegation general,” and Spain took a similar move in September.
Israel’s message to the French and the Spanish was that this was not the right time to give the Palestinians a “free prize,” and that it sent the wrong message at a time when the PA was not showing any flexibility.
It was not immediately clear whether this came up in the meetings on Sunday.
Barak, in a much more conciliatory statement than Lieberman’s, said before his meeting with the two Europeans that although he knew there would be disagreements with them regarding the settlement moratorium issue, “they both take a lot of time working towards a real European contribution to peace between Israel and the Palestinians.Yawn. He's proving lazy as usual.
“I know that they are both friends of Israel, and they are respected by the Palestinians and throughout the Arab world. Therefore, they can really help,” the defense minister said.
In a related development, the Shas spokesman issued an unequivocal denial to a Channel 10 report Sunday that the party’s Construction and Housing Minister Ariel Attias recently told the security cabinet that Rabbi Ovadia Yosef would approve a another 60-day settlement construction moratorium if the US promises that it would be the last.They're right to oppose any such move, and besides, you can't trust Obama's administration, or any other, to respect it.
The Shas spokesman, however, issued a statement saying that Yosef told Shas chairman Eli Yishai that the party will oppose any moratorium extension, even for only two months, and will instruct the Shas ministers to vote accordingly.

MICKEY KAUS: Pelosi’s Wrong About Gingrich And Food Stamps. “Gingrich was charging that the Democrats, and the Obama administration specifically, are too comfortable with a society in which citizens rely on government handouts. He could have extended that to include Tea Partyish fears that the whole economy will come to be dependent on government subsidies, or government industrial policy, or (in the worst case scenario) political favoritism.” Worst case, but not least-likely case . . . .
MORE PROOF THE ENTIRE SO-CALLED PEACE PROCESS IS A SHAM: FATAH REJECTS ISRAEL AS A JEWISH STATE - UPDATED
The Palestinians on Monday rejected a demand by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyhau that they should recognize Israel as a Jewish state in order to secure a new freeze on settlement building.THE IDEA THAT ISRAEL IS AND WILL REMAIN A JEWISH STATE HAS BEEN PART OF THE PROCESS FOR YEARS.
BUSH SAID IT IN FRONT OF ABBAS AND OLMNERT IN ANNAPOLIS; (VIDEO).
EVEN OBAMA SAID IT - IN 2007:
Last week, before would-be POTUSes begun speaking only of all things Christmas, Democratic presidential contender Senator Barack Obama held a foreign policy forum. We've just obtained the transcript for his remarks there on Israel:OBAMA SAID IT AGAIN THIS YEAR:
"I start with the premise that Israel is a stalwart ally of ours and their security cannot be compromised. I also start with the premise that the status quo is unsustainable and that what would be good for Israeli security will be the kind of two-state solution that allows the Palestinians to live and prosper in their own state and allows Israel to maintain the security of its state."
"I think everyone knows what the basic outlines of an agreement would look like. It would mean that the Palestinians would have to reinterpret the notion of right of return in a way that would preserve Israel as a Jewish state. It might involve compensation and other concessions from the Israelis but ultimately Israel is not going to give up its state."
In Thursday's speech before the UN 65th General Assembly convention, Obama said it is time to relaunch the negotiations without preconditions related to the permanent status issues, which have a clear goal, two states living side by side in peace and security, a Jewish state for Israel and another independent Palestinian state within coherent borders.HAMAS OBJECTED AT THE TIME; FATAH AND ABBAS DIDN'T - PUBLICLY.
AND WHEN THE JIHADISTS CALL ISRAEL THE "ZIONIST ENTITY" THEY ARE TACITLY ACKNOWLEDGING ISRAEL IS A JEWISH STATE.
- SO FOR FATAH TO REJECT IT NOW - YEARS AFTER IT WAS A TACIT ASPECT OF THE PEACE PROCESS - REVEALS JUST HOW UTTERLY UNTRUSTWORTHY THEY ARE;
- THEY ARE NOT "PARTNERS FOR PEACE";
- THEY ARE EVERY BIT THE ENEMY THAT HAMAS AND HIZBALLAH ARE,
- AND SHOULD BE TREATED S SUCH;
- THEY SHOULD BE UTTERLY VANQUISHED, NOT APPEASED.
THE NYTIMES JUST PUBLISHED AN ANALYSIS OF THIS AND DID NOT MENTION THE FACT THAT BOTH OBAMA AND BUSH HAVE REPEATEDLY AND EXPLICITLY STATED THAT THE GOAL OF THE PEACE PROCESS WAS A JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL WITH DEFENSIBLE BORDERS. (THE NYTIMES - CARRYING WATER FOR FATAH - TREATS IT AS A PLOY OF BIBI'S)
THE FACT THAT FATAH WON'T ACCEPT THIS PROVES THAT THE TALKS ARE A NON-STARTER. IF THEY WON'T ACCEPT THIS, THEN THERE IS NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT.
LIKE THE INVENTION OF "THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE," THE TALKS ARE JUST A PLOY FOR THE ARABS AND JIHADISTS TO GAIN TIME AND AN EDGE OVER ISRAEL WITH THE INTENT TO DESTROY IT, ERASE IT FROM THE MAP.
THE WORLD WILL END BEFORE ISRAEL CEASES TO EXIST.
What has America become? "You can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer... "
What has America become?
Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?
if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics;
the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims;
in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process;
you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer;
we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them;
we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive;
we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea;
You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas;
we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people;
we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.
we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology;
we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct;
parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games;
the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs;
the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.
And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

... more than 500 prizes have been awarded. But which nation can claim the most winners?
We have trawled through the archives to produce a definitive list of the nations with the biggest brains.
A clear winner would be the United States which comes out top overall, as well as in five of the six categories. The UK is next, with 117 Nobel medals. However, France, which bumps along in fourth or fifth, is clearly ahead when it comes to literature.
But there are a total of 69 countries or territories whose citizens have picked up the prize, from St Lucia to this week's latest addition, Peru, birthplace of author Mario Vargas Llosa.
HMMM. USA 323. UK 117, GERMANY 103. AMERICANS SHOULD BE VERY PROUD.
NOW... ER UM... HOW MANY JEWS HAVE WON THE NOBEL?
THE PERCENTAGES FOR JEWS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
- Chemistry (31 prize winners, 20% of world total, 28% of US total)
- Economics (27 prize winners, 42% of world total, 56% of US total)
- Literature (13 prize winners, 12% of world total, 27% of US total)
- Peace (9 prize winners, 9% of world total, 10% of US total)4
- Physics (47 prize winners, 25% of world total, 36% of US total)
- Physiology or Medicine (53 prize winners, 27% of world total, 40% of US total)
127 NOBELS FROM .2% OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION.
JEWS ARE THE BRAINIEST PEOPLE ON EARTH.
