Bx, I think I actually understand some of the 'logic' now, it's not what counts but what (the C3s?) care about. I suppose they are more likely to be worse to their bodies, poor diet, drinking (I think that's universal here) and smoking. And if you have a low social status (as I learnt in sociology) you do need to boost it in other ways like national and local pride (as there's precious little personal pride).
I'd give you an 'A' for that
It's a shame about the situation in Israel yaarbiriah, I've been reading identical stories for 40 years although far worse since the intifada. Imagine touring the West Bank and being welcomed into Arab restaurants and workshops who were doing well under thousands of visiting tourists. I can't see that returning unfortunately. That was in 1972.
By the way, you can edit those mistakes out, then no one would ever know
