New findings show that one of the most important factors in determining which sports one will be good at is correlated with location of one’s bellybutton. The idea is, where your bellybutton is, is where your center of gravity is—and this may determine your inherent abilities to run and swim. Those with higher a navel position tend to be better runners (because they usually have longer legs proportionate to their height), while people with a lower navel position are good swimmers (due to a longer torso).
The world we live in today is populated with people who are a mix of different religions, cultures, ethnicities and gene pools.

However, walking away is easier said than done. As North Americans, we’re raised in a culture that values manners and likability over forthrightness. I never really noticed this until my friends, who had grown up in Germany, pointed out North Americans “were overly polite and smiled so much it was almost creepy.” Consequently, none of my German girlfriends are afraid to be bluntly honest – about anything.
