The good news; We're going to see higher average intelligence after CV-19.

The Black Death, a plague that first devastated Europe in the 1300s, had a silver lining. After the ravages of the disease, surviving Europeans lived longer, a new study finds.

The longevity boost seen after the plague could have come as a result of the plague weeding out the weak and frail

DeWitte's previous research found the plague was like many sicknesses: It preferentially killed the very old and those already in poor health.

CDC data estimates between 14-21% of cases for those aged 20-44 have needed hospitalisation.

Gov. Hogan reports majority of COVID-19 cases in MD are people in their 40s.

Yeah, I think it will eventually help nudge us in the other direction, attempting to kill off your base is not a great way to get reelected.

What I'm amazed by is how quickly FoxNews and his minions fell inline.

Most of the religious right aren't really Christians.

Right, I guess we're uniquely unhealthy as a country and that's making our stats skew lower age.

They ate less in plague-times, i wonder if that could account for the longevity.
