They benefit from high altitude, a culture which values good runners and an unusually high percentage of their muscle mass is posture muscle (endurance) rather than twitch (strength). Funnily on the west coast of Africa (the ultimate origin of many Jamaicans) the twitch/posture ratio is reversed, which makes for very good sprinters and other sports requiring explosive power.

When Jesus was alive, the Stonehenge was already a ruin. It's sometimes hard to grasp where everything is in relation to each other on the historical timeline

Australia's diameter is 600km wider than the moon's. The moon sits at 3400km in diameter, while Australia's diameter from east to west is almost 4000km.

Diamonds are basically worthless. There are tons of diamonds on earth, it's just that one company holds the monopoly and creates an artificial shortage. They're just pretty rocks.

If it did rain diamonds on Jupiter, they would dissolve, but diamomds do rain on Neptune and Uranus. "A proposal that diamonds may also form in Jupiter and Saturn, where the concentration of carbon is far lower, was considered unlikely because the diamonds would quickly dissolve." This article talks about it. https://www.space.com/23135-diamond-rain-jupiter-saturn.html

Because we actually have plenty of diamonds on this planet, they're just hidden away in vaults to keep the prices high.
