I agree about the fiddlers and brackish water, the rest of your statement bothers me a bit. As brackish is in between fresh and salt, the crab will be able to tolerate both water types, but will only thrive in brackish, much like a betta can LIVE in a 1 gallon tank, but it won't be completely happy or healthy with less than 2.5-5g.
As for the rest, there is bases for the overweight and denial of genocide.
The US ranks as the 6th most obese country with 33.9% of its adult population being as such. This number is taken from the cia's website ranking the world's countries.
I would say there is a lack of admittance to genocide among some Americans, but this comes from a more personal experience. In public school the treatment of the Native Americans and "genocide," were never mentioned in the same sentence. According to our education, their treatment was awful, many died and most were pushed from the lands they knew to live in harsh environments which often lead to even more deaths. But was that genocide? That topic had never come up. The only event in history that my schools had called "genocide" was the Holocaust. (even the Armenians were never mentioned, and I learned of Rawanda from the media/movies).
Education may be a bit different now, and they may officially call it genocide, but it wasn't all that long ago that I was in high school, so there would still be a huge population of people that are unable to make that connection.
I could probably write a whole research paper on this, but I'll stop here as I've probably bored you all already. I have a BA in history so these subjects are a little...touchy with me. Also, I do not mean to offend, only educate :)
Anyways......why don't we all get back to the original topic? Have pit bulls been mentioned yet?
Myth: All pit bulls are violent man-eaters.
Fact: It has not been proven that any one breed would be more likely to bite than any others. Aggression is a part of personality, not a genetic component so it is a learned trait. Also the prejudice towards pits is fairly recent, only emerging thanks to those who breed and train them to fight. Before, breeds like the German Shepard, Rottweiler, and Doberman held the same myth. While 2 of those still have a pretty bad reputation, the German Shepard is now given more respect thanks to their service with the police.
