Default Maybe I should have been a sociologist...or anthropologist...

...because my very first reaction to this thought-provoking article was "I wonder how these lists would appear if collected from various societies?".

I am assuming this Australian nurse collected them from Australia; possibly from the UK. Think of the potential differences amongst Russians, or Ethiopians, or Indians, Brazilians, Japanese, Balinese....

As those who know of me understand well, over fifteen years ago, at what most consider a still youthful age , I took those #s 1 & 2 by the horns and wrassled them all the way up to Bush Alaska. #5 followed suit, but I would not give myself high marks for #s 3 & 4.
