This coming Saturday, April 21, 2018, is one of JUST 4 “Free Entrance Days” at the U.S. National Parks.

Entrance prices have gone up this year, $5 at Acadia National Park.

They have cut back drastically on these FREE days.

A few years back it used to be a COMPLETE WEEK in April. We know. We went to the Grand Canyon that year!

April 21, 2018, is the first day of the New Hampshire April school vacation. So, this could work out.

One-day FREE doesn’t normally get you much since ideally you would want to visit a Park for at least a couple of day.

But, hey … it is FREE.

Not of great interest to us. Between us we have TWO (2) Lifetime entrance passes to all Parks! We only need one, but, in a fit of generosity, I bought one just to give some money to the Parks I love!

Jews & ‘Atheists’ Will Live Longer In The Future — Per ‘PEW Research Study’.

This is kind of wild.

BUT, I think I kind of found the explanation. If you read the fine print it it says the data is from the UN — and that life expectancy within countries is NOT available!

Bingo. I looked up the life expectancy for Israel. 82.05. So, that is how Jews lead the table.

Not sure where they found the data for the ‘unaffiliated’ — what I treated as ‘atheists‘, though I am fully aware that ‘unaffiliated’ is broader and includes folks like I who do not believe in any religion per se, irrespective of a belief in God.

Now it makes more sense and I can see why Muslims prop up the table. They were using data from countries ravaged by violence.

Hhhmmmm.

So, nowhere near as ‘good’ as it initially looks.

But, I wanted to share.
