Think – Today: What Percentage Of the World’s Male Population Is Circumcised?

by Anura Guruge


399087054It is something that is worth thinking about. Would you have your son circumcised? If it is good for one then one has to assume that more than 50% of the world’s male population is circumcised. Is it?

Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “How much air do we breathe in a day” — on average around 2,665 GALLONS (U.S.) a day! [Maybe a bit more, even getting close to 3,000 gallons.] That is air. Oxygen is 20% of that. 2,665 gallons a day is impressive. That is nearly 80,000 gallons a month. 960,000 gallons a year. In a 70-year life close to 65 million gallons.

This letter, dated April 1, 2013 (though I really hope it was NOT an April Fool’s joke by the town), was read, without too much elaboration, at last night’s School Board meeting. Since I didn’t get to see the letter and I was not taking any notes I might have got some of the nuances wrong, but the gist of it, as I could see it, was that the Town, at last, was asking the school to look into the issues of the malodorous sinks in the classroom.

As with the ‘seating configuration‘, I know very well that this had nothing to do with me (and after 21 years of writing public opinion pieces I know the adage: ‘like a rooster claiming that it is his daily crowing that makes the Sun rise‘ only too well).

But, seems strange that just last Friday, March 29, 2013, I happened to speak to a Town official on exactly this matter and even spelled out how they used a piece of wood over the sink. Now, as is my wont, I might have, inadvertently, used my ‘code words’.

Bottom line is that I am delighted. Teischan who was also at the meeting was even more delighted.

Amazing how these things happen. We just started trying to get to the bottom of this ACS air quality issue — as I posted yesterday (where I did mention that I had been talking to people in Concord and the Town Hall).

Suddenly we have all these documents in front of me — and I THANK all those that scrambled to get them to us within ‘hours’.

I have Air Quality reports from 2010 and 2012 PLUS a NH Department of LaborSafety Inspection Report‘ for the SAU and ACS that was conducted this year, February 26, 2013.

Plus there is the second School Board meeting this coming Monday, April 8, 2013 where I gather some of these concerns will get aired.
