What a weirdly misleading graph GDP Growth makes. Rwanda, as one example, looks promising until one realizes their per capita GDP is about $700. With a 7% increase, they may be able to afford that brand new can of beans they've been eyeing.

Kentucky and Tennessee are unfairly looking teetotal as this excludes bourbon distilleries.

Wonder if it had some correlation to german settlement?

Good point! I know of two cases, Tsing Tao beer in China, and Greek beer(s) as they had had a Bavarian king (Otto) – I heard it said he came with his own brewery. (Perhaps a legend?) :wink:

European, just between the Celtic and Slavic branches.

Always wondered if there was a relation between Albanian krumpir (potato) and Alsatian Krumbira (potato also, meaning something like "crooked pear"). :mrgreen:

Has its own branch. In the picture, below the Slavic branch and above the Celtic branch. Pretty much in the center of the picture.

So Japanese and Korean are each separate trees not related to any other major language group?

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

The correlation, I would bet, is the incidence of craft breweries relative to SJW/Snowflake incidence.

That's "metre" not "meter". French you know.

It's the BBC.

They are still doing that French shit, despite Brexit.
