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

Complete & utter BULLCRAP! Last decade I've said goodbye to a couple of friendships, which lasted (respectively) 34, 19 & 12 years.

That... is... not... true... well, okay maybe I'm an outlier... two backstabs and one complete abandonment/ghosting... all three were friendships of over 10 years. I'm still alive. I think.

If dogs are friends for 7 years it basically IS a lifetime.

Well this doesn't apply to humans obviously. I've had a friend forever and overnight we weren't friends anymore(how silly)... I hope they meant dog years. Be friends for 7 seconds with a dog and this friendship will be eternal.

Huh, interesting. We observed a pattern at my last employer that if you stay more than 7 years, you end up staying for life! It was mostly true. I broke it, left at 10 years.

Regardless of what one friend does to betray the other? Any real psychologist wouldn't say something so unprovable.

In order for this to be true, there have to be at least two psychologists who have said this. That is not unlikely, but I don't think it has been officially confirmed.

This is very true with my friends and I. I've known my three best friends (who are more like sisters to me) for over 20 years. I think though you have to look into why you guys are friends to begin with and what keeps you together in order for this statement to be true.
