Proximity to immediate help; proximity to medical care. You can get many chances to die in a place like that.

You don't have to spend a lot of time examining New Yorkers to see that huffing exhaust is bad for you. If you're from a less car-infested place, you can't fail to notice.


Obviously New York City in 1900 didn't have just as good proximity to care as they do now. (Eyes rolling).

In case you missed it, New York City is the center of the news media universe. They don't appear very sickly in physical health.

Chicken ferocity is amazing. I saw my rooster Jackie Chan
bluff-charge hawks, attack me and leave me with scars I still wear,
and face down all kinds of other critters you'd think were completely
out of a chicken's league. They have no idea they're just chickens.


Chickens are dinosaurs, literally. They know this and they think they
are short T. rexes.

Even simpler: public clean drinking water and sanitation systems. Yes
it's a form of collectivist socialism but it actually works. Water
service and sewers made a huge difference.

You don't have to spend a lot of time examining New Yorkers to see
that huffing exhaust is bad for you. If you're from a less

There's a ton of research on the deleterious effects of city life on
physical and mental health. But it is where the majority of humans live
these days; other factors provide some compensation.

The smog was ten times worse in LA. You HAD to travel by car there. From Riverside you could see that black cloud hovering above the horizon.

But although that does cause certain ailments in people that are sensitive to that, the average age of death in LA was no different than it was in Seattle which at the time was one of the hallmarks of a pristine environment.

Naw. Roosters are just herd critters and fighting chickens are just
trying to keep others away from THEIR flock :-)
