Americans on average are older fatter and sicker than the average person in Latin America. So they will never have the death rate we have.

The average age of a Colombian male is 29 years old. For women, it's 31 years of age, overall average. Not many nations have an overall age difference of two full years between men and women.

Even though infant mortality there is more than twice the the USAs and the life expectancy slightly shorter, "Survival of the fittest " culls out the weakest--typically the youngest and oldest.

In the Philippines,  average male age is 23 y/o, female's 24.

USA? Male 36.8,  females 39.4.

Unlike almost every other nation, in recent years life expectancy in the USA has been DECREASING.

Tell THAT  to your health insurance carrier.

I somehow figure the lower the average age, the more free time and sexual activity going on--lotsa babies coming along that aren't exactly 'making themselves.' LOL...

They must be REALLY busy in over a dozen African nations, where the average age of male and females is down well into their teens--15 to 19 y/o. In four nations, the aaverage age is 15!

Some middle eastern nations are way low average age wise, then above them, some poorer pacific islands.

Overall, the poorer the place, the younger the average age--and babies everywhere.

Meanwhile, at the other end, the eldest citizens by age--- it's our own former AXIS, WWII enemies--Germany,  Italy and Japan, that with aged populations pushing age 50 for both sexes, they have diapers for adults greatly outselling the infant models....

The death rate in Colombia per 1000 is 5.5
The death rate in the USA is 8.2 per 1000.

But the Incel rate in the USA is off the charts while it is close to zero in Colombia .  Jajaja

It's hard to correlate that death 5.5 rate, comparing it to other nations with similar rates and trying to assume that certain behaviors occur more or less. But I'd guess that amongst rabbits, their rate and typical behaviors, Turks and Caicos Islands, with a 3.3 rate, has to have something in common!


My wife's country seems super young and you just feel the energy and excitement all around. Makes the USA seem somber and uptight. They're too busy living to worry. They don't worry about tomorrow.


Even the rich and middle class in the USA--young and old alike, seem to have more neurosis--panic attacks, worries and stress, than a lot of places overseas.


We're fecking killing ourselves, pretending it's civilized all the while.

In 2017, more than 70,000 people died from drug overdoses, making it a leading cause of injury-related death in the United States.
Eighteen percent of pregnancies (excluding miscarriages) in 2017 ended in abortion. Approximately 862,320 abortions were performed in 2017, down 7% from 926,190 in 2014. The abortion rate in 2017 was 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44, down 8% from 14.6 per 1,000 in 2014 Gun Deaths Again Neared 40,000 in 2018, Latest CDC Data Shows. While overall fatalities remained relatively unchanged compared to 2017, the share of suicides increased.Jan 7, 2019

If you could stop abortions the population in the USA would become a lot younger thus a lower death rate. Get rid of the drug over doses and guns and we would have a 3.3 percent death rate.....assuming we get the corona virus under control.

With the exceptions of Guyana (highest suicide rate on earth!-- long weird story) Suriname (tiny nation, weird) and Uruguay (inexplicable, but 2nd leading cause of death amongst teens) Latin America has very, very low rates.

The USA has a suicide rate twice as high as Colombia's.

But then, the Philippine's suicide  rate is about half of Colombia's. For years now,, I have been suspicious about why those poor people are so fecking#*× happy!?

But it's the Caribbean Islands that have the lowest suicide rates of all.

Wonder what they're smoking??

The reasons people actually successfully commit suicide are complicated and some of the reasons have nothing to do with how unhappy someone is.

I believe it was England that cut the suicide rate in half when it switched from town gas which contained carbon monoxide to natural gas that didn't contain any.

I work in mental health and I think there is truth to accessibility increasing rate of suicide. However, the rate of suicide in the Great Depression went up 26%, so I won't be surprised to see the rates go up from covid, not only for economic reasons but also trauma related as a number of health professionals on the front lines have already killed themselves....

The wealthiest nations on this short list are the ones with greatest declines in life expectancy, as well as living overall deceasing lifespans globally. It is believed that in the few years since they compiled data, suicides have increased, exacerbating the decline. In the USA the "opioid epidemic' has also taken a larger toll.


Things are just getting worse.


Suicides and addictions have caused the younger generation in the USA to decline more than in most places.


We don't need heroin and cocaine from distant nations, we make plenty of our own poison. In fact many OD on their legally obtained prescriptions.


Take into account how obsessed we are with 'depression'--panic attacks and stress and the drugs associated with it and things we once accepted as "Well, life sucks--that's just the way it is"---no wonder we feel hopeless. Add in increasing income disparity and an ever increasing but insatiable materialistic appetite, and it's not looking good.


If an alien came down and watched the TV commercials during the national network news, the alien would probably wonder why we advertise --why we take all those weird sounding drugs for weird sounding problems, while mentioning how "possible side effects may include death" etc. etc...Between the commercials, the inevitable murder and violence stories, we might not appear to be so "1st world, advanced/civilized" -- compared to 'less developed' nations.

There are two reasons most Colombians are happier than most Americans.....they know how to socialize.....compared to Colombians....we are Neanderthals when it comes to having a network of friends. And having good friends and relationships is the easiest way to improve your happiness and it doesn't cost a thing really.

The second thing I have noticed here is Colombians are more aware that they are going to die one day....so the live it up in the moment.

And the last thing Colombia has taught me is that God wants us to be happy....doesn't really matter if you were raised as a Protestant in the USA we're it is conceivable that God very well might want you to suffer in life.....because almost everyone here believes God wants you to be happy no matter what you might believe and that one belief has an incredible impact  on society here.

The only thing you really need to know about finding a wife here is that marriage is for procreation and family. If you find a woman here that wants to marry you but doesn't want your children than God only knows what her motivations are. And if you don't want any children with your wife then they will know straight up that she is just a sex toy until something better comes along and will probably treat you accordingly.

Probably more a million abortions in the USA are coming down the pike as well.
But things will be pretty nice here in Colombia ...I'm sure.

It's all the right to lifers have to do is show young American guys the huge difference in the number of young hot chicks in countries with low abortion rates compared to countries with high abortion rates and the guys will all be against abortion.

I woudnt be so sure of it. People still need to eat to be happy. They dont have any "helicopter money" being dropped on them here, though the congresistas, senadores, alcaldes  and consejos  still hang on to their bloated salaries and bennies.A lot of people very , very hungry, and some cant pay the rent and getting evicted. And you can only cram so many people in an estrato 2 house where only 2 are working. Also a lot of businesse here going bankrupt... permanently.


Not everybody has a gringo or family in the US still working and sending them money..although every time I past Western Union the line up to get in is about 3 blocks long.

You have a very limited view point of what is happening here, Like I said, only a small proportion have a gringo or Euro sending them money, or family working overseas sending remittances by Western Union. And the governmnet is doing SQUAT to help them.No "Helicpter Money" here.


It is the estratos 2 through 4 who are suffering newly, and even some in 5 and 6.


A lot of people going bankrupt, cant pay rent, cant put food on the table-who were working before or who had family members workig before..who had busineess that are now bankrupt or near bankrupt..or professionals like lawyers and Accountants, Doctors, etc  who had clients that went bankrupt or donthave money, and are now really hurting themselves.

It's hard to make concrete assumptions about a foreign culture based on numbers. Numbers seemed scarce, old and sketchy about abortion rates and Colombia.
But it appears that 'on paper' Colombia has slightly more (for Latin American) laws allowing abortion under certain conditions. Perhaps a lot more abortions are being done outside of govt clinics and hospitals? A good idea to me, but it sounds like that more than in the USA,  in Colombia , they try and talk women out of having abortions, guilt tripping them.

Maybe like other nations that have an old tradition of Catholicism,  old ways die hard.

But no matter---it sure sounds like there's a pretty young, vibrant, sexually active society down there. Strength and energy therein. Life blood.

Some of the most religious people I've met were hookers, and everywhere and type in between in terms of behavior and religion. Like the 2 pretty young things I turned down,  just as the church bells rang. They both went to Mass instead.

But for various reasons, it doesn't  appear that abortion in Colombia is as easy to get in govt hospitals or that it's considered as casually or automatically a viable option as it is in the USA. Or China, Russia,  Cuba, Brazil etc.

My point is that it's worse for first world people. I work a suicide hotline
and take calls from suicidal callers who've lost jobs and hope and are so ready to go I have to keep them on the phone until police arrive. What do you know about those people in the US?

A good idea to me, but it sounds like that more than in the USA,  in Colombia , they try and talk women out of having abortions, guilt tripping them

I think it is probably even harder to make assumptions about a country without ever having set foot in the place. LOL

Abortion is illegal in Colombia unless the life of the mother is at stake....the fetus has medical problems or the pregnancy came from rape.

There are no abortion clinics here ....if the girl meets one of the criteria and wants an abortion then she has to go to a doctor and request it and the abortion is done in a hospital.  All legal abortions are done in a hospital.

No reason to try and guilt trip a woman from having an abortion here.
She either meets the criteria or she doesn't..

If she doesn't meet the criteria and she wants an abortion then she would have to pay for an illegal abortion some where.

I have no idea how many illegal abortions are done here but it would be a small fraction of the abortion rate in the USA.

If a woman is pregnant here people let her g to the front of the line in banks and just about anywhere else.

Instead of handicap parking they have pregnancy parking.

I saw a Mc Donald's commercial on TV here in Colombia years ago that blew my mind.....because I realized that if they showed that commercial in the USA a lot of pro choice women would have boycotted McDonalds.

In the  TV commercial it shows a very pregnant woman driving a car....then it shows an animated baby inside of her tugging on her ambilical chord...then the women looks up and sees the golden arches of a Mc Donald's ....and she smiles and pulls the car into the McDonald's.

Mc Donald's knows how Colombians think.....I would love to see the reaction if Mc Donald's was ever stupid enough to run an ad like that in the USA jajaja

I don't pretend to know what even the air smells like there. As I indicated, info (and I didn't spend much time) was old, even sketchy in reporting, Tales of multiple nurses trying to dissuade women, repeatedly showing young pregnant girls baby dolls, putting in their arms etc., etc. All over the world, it's an issue that somehow gets worse if you're trying to get objective info online. So much BS out there.


Just like covid-19 reporting is a world class mess and the internet's handling of it a similar mess.


But as of the latest Colombian Constitutional Court's ruling, (below) it remains really hard for a woman to get a legal abortion there.




A girl gets preggars in a poor nation like that and it's a life changer. I bet it all falls more on family there than here.


In the USA, she gets knocked up, she has a shot at a govt. subsidized appt. and food stamps. If she has two more kids, she's taking home serious govt. money.


Still, I can't begin to tell you how many grandparents are raising their children's children. Their grandchildren. The parents are so F-----ed up that millions of grandparents have to do it.


As a child of divorce and as a divorced father, watching life around me--the overall quality and consistency of 'family life' has gone from bad to worse in the USA. Spouses are more like disposable options and the kids have never been more alienated from their parents.


Don't get me wrong, I thought my parents were total dinosaurs. But add warp speed digital, internet, gaming,  cell phone and just about everything else accelerated into the latest USA generation, and they seem like Smithsonian Historical  Exhibits.


I asked my 22 y/o son a question after he graduated from UGA, into a 96K a year computer job last December.


How come I never got bills for textbooks?


"Uh, Dad---books?--You mean, like "analog"??


I felt like a dinosaur!!

Spouses, especially husbands, are disposable because "every woman deserves to be with a man who treats her like a queen." That is our current reality in the US. Husbands are like cars, swap em out for a shinier one as soon as you feel any boredom or have to work on it....

Like a few previous (current?) members do, Jedimaster checked in earlier (w/o posting) and this was one of his--I think his last post.





I'd think it resonates beyond the handful of crackers left posting here. Back to my usual (as of late anyway) studies of the late Paul Gauguin, who's artistic adventures and female appreciations I share, albeit over a century later...

She asked me why she keeps seeing good looking American men with fat, ugly American women?




MC, the reason why your wife keeps seeing good looking American men with fat, ugly American women is because American men generally tend to underestimate their dating market value.  American women on the other hand tend to overestimate their dating market value."""""

Are you talking about Colombia?

So was it the nurses in a hospital where legal abortions are performed ......trying to talk women that might die if they carry the birth to term....or trying to convince a woman that has a deformed fetus not to abort or maybe they just focus on the women that got pregnant from rape. Because those are the only reasons that permit a legal abortion to be performed.

Or was it the nurses at the doctors offices that preform illegal abortions that  were trying to convince the Colombian women from having an abortion . Jajaja

Robert ....your posts are starting to remind me of Mudds. Jajaja And that isn't a good thing
