Oh I don't know. The top 20 countries by life expectancy all seem pretty high-tech to me. Probably due to good quality health care. Technology probably not so much of a drag from that point of view.

This thread is kind of depressing. So much fakery.

That's quite true! That's why Mark Twain said "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness..." :mrgreen:
For a few times at Chinese dinner tables I heard Chinese people making very generalized statements about xxx country (each at a different time). And I would say, can you guys imagine, probably right at this moment, at a dinner table in xxx country, there are the same statements thrown out about Chinese people? :mrgreen:
