which ones are bullshit? How about #17? How could the government poison beer which was made in the speakeasy not in a brewery? What REALLY happened was that the government poisoned grain alcohol that was used for other purposes that when consumed would poison people. #7 is based on the outdated BMI scale. #4 is a socialists equal outcome not equal effort statistic. The average American is 20 times more productive than the average Kenyan.
