What kind of micro are you into? For me, I guess it's a cool find, but they are finding stuff like this all the time. "missing links" don't really excite me because I know they are out there. Of course I'm more into pathogens and stuff so I'm a little biased. I would be more interested in if they found an archaea that pushed the limits of survivability higher. Of course, I also like archaea cause they were discovered at my school and they love to hammer it home.

I'm more focused on environmental and industrial systems. Pathogens are neat and dynamic, but they already get a lot of love. I sum it up to human experience and bias, but it's still key research all the same. I'm interested in novel gene products and metabolisms of newly discovered organisms and their implication for industry and other uses as well.

All those stats being legit is why America is one of the best countries in the entire world for someone to live in.
178th in infant mortality rate? Either that IS in fact false information, or he was trying to make you think that is by some stretch bad, because in reality only 6 children die in America for every 1000 children born. The country with the lowest being Japan at 2 deaths per 1000 born.
3rd in median household income? Holy shit that's better than I thought. With how fucking massive and diverse that country is and they're STILL 3rd in this category, yet he tries to use that AGAINST the country?
Same can be said about labor force, the country is massive, diverse, and highly populated yet they still manage to stay at 4th in labor rate. Yea let's use that AGAINST the country, logical.
4th in exports? What the fuck does this have anything to do with how "great" the country is? And even so, 4th is pretty fucking good.
And about the science and math one, I can already tell this is going to piss people off, but the reality is Americans are privileged enough to be able to forgo extensive math and science education should they so choose. There are enough opportunities outside of these fields to make a living off of that it is far less mandatory for the general population to be a math or science wizz. That being said, once AGAIN, America is highly populated and highly diverse, yet they still stay around the average in these categories.
1st in incarceration per capita. Well from what I can find they're actually in second, but that's pretty irrelevant. While I agree this is partially one of America's flaws www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaPBcUUqbew Great video about the flaws of incarceration within America I also see it as a good thing in a way. The people who are in jail (most of them anyway) deserve to be there and deserve some form of punishment. That being said, what happens during their time incarcerated and the amount of time incarcerated can be argued against.
1st in number of people who believe in angels. As someone who isn't exactly religious, I can't wrap my fucking head around how this is a negative. I assume he was talking about Christianity, because it's America. What the fuck is wrong with your average Christian? All the Christians I know are good people and have great virtues. Who fucking cares what their belief system is?
1st in defense spending. Okay? The United States is a highly militarized country and history seems to show that they are better off because of it. Once again I'm not exactly seeing a problem here that would detract from America being one of the "best" countries in the world.
