Though a million dollars is nothing to sneeze at, nowadays it's the equivalent to a 10000-aire back when Monopoly was invented, not that 10G was anything to sneeze at back then.

It's actually easier to move the social ladder in Asia these days, and that's saying a lot about how far we've fallen into stratified classes.

Yeah, but we must beat them in the more Asians category, right?

Don't worry America, you'll always have more fatties.

You'd think so if you were in the engineering building at any major college campus

Yeah, real fair. Apples to apples, for sure.

Not sure about asia, but most western countries rank higher in "The American Dream" than America does. Yes France beats America at the American dream, how do your freedom fries taste now?

Very few people move out of the income bracket you were born in here. The American Dream, which barely ever really existed, is dead. Outsourcing killed it.

As a longtime representative for Fark's hermaphrodite community, let me just state for the record that it's not a contest. We go for quality over quantity, anyway... ;^)

Prove it.
(When China doesn't publish those numbers, and actually likely suppresses them, claims like yours can't really (or shouldn't) be made.)

On a percentage of people in prison by country, for those countries that report it, the US is number one, ahead of Russia. 715 per 10,000 people in the States, 584 per 10000 people in Russia. China is ranked at 119 per 10000

and they should also have more geniuses statistically than we do. I tend to believe that they could be great, in all senses of that word, again.

I call bullshiat. There are like what, 4 guys in that band? America has literally dozens of millionaires.
 
2012-07-23 05:15:55 PM  
So now we're comparing three billion people to 300 million people and expecting the numerics to work out.


How about Gini indexing and what a bottom rung standard of living looks like for comparisons.
 
2012-07-23 05:16:30 PM  
Maybe it has something to do with that fact that nearly half the world's population is Asian.

Wait. I take back the last one. That sounds bullshiat. Maybe the other one as well. Fark it, this is Fark, since when do we do any research before spewing bullshiats?

America has more Civil War reenactors that anyone. However China has more Boxers Buffs. So that is a wash.
