Random question: On a per-capita basis, is there a less athletic country than India? And yes I realize their most popular sport gets exactly zero coverage by the American media (cricket).

bangladesh/pakistan?

I mean yeah, that whole subcontinent has problems with it, I think the most logical reason I've seen is poor nutrition in children is rampant with little/no government sport programs leading to no reason to become devoted to sport.

I wonder how much of it has to do with India's primary religion cultivating a vegetarian diet.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

My indian pal and I were discussing this exactly. His thesis was that it is a cultural thing - education is just amazingly important, with everyone of any means wanting their kids to be doctors or engineers. So most kids end up in after school lessons, instead of sports. Any one too poor to aspire to that, isnt in any shape to aspire to be a sports star.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

doesn't help that the whole country is a cesspool of poverty, disease, and borderline slavery with almost no infrastructure at all

that being said I've worked with two Ph.d's from India that were both really smart

How smart can Indians be, really? They have biochemists, but haven't figured out how to use them to develop drugs for their athletes? Book smart, not street smart

The brightest Indians all move to the US, instead of stay in India and try to improve the country. Graduates of India Institute of Tech get paaaaaaaaaid big time.

I can't imagine several dozen generations of a primarily plant-based diet leads to good athletic outcomes over time
