    basically, jews,buddhists,muslims pray head down to satan. during the night christian earthlybowdowns count 40 times more than daily earthlybowdowns. since, most of the time witches pray during the night against christians, it's best to pray at night ...maybe you could do 2000 christian earthlybowdowns.. notice that muslims-jews-buddhists stay head down which shows that they worship satan; christians have to get up super fast showing allegiance to Christ and not the devil. so, christian earthlybowdowns: u face east, legs together (so that demon don't run underneath ur legs); u look at the eyes of icon (energy goes ur way according to saint Pelageya of Ryazan); u make proper Orthodox sign of the cross (first three fingers together as if u had a pinch of salt in them; thumb always straight; ring and pinky to palm; firmly touch forehead: "in the name of the Father"; firmly touch 1cm above belly button: "and of the Son", raise hand to chest level and now move to right shoulder where three bones meet: "and of the Holy"; move to left shoulder: "Spirit. Amen"; release the fingers; hand down by ur side); u bow down on ur knees (knees together), then put hands on the floor just touching each other, then forehead on top of backofhands; as soon as ur forehead touches the back of hands, get up super fast showing allegiance to Christ (and not the devil). do 2000 times during the night against witches. 'cuz witches work hard for satan (by praying like three hours); you have to show them respect by outworking them; u feel me? but of course when u tired u could pray the Jesus prayer at least three times every hour (don't sleep 4 more than 1 hour; wake up and pray the Jesus prayer three times; then u can rest a little bit; in case witches pray real hard to satan, then u have to pray to Jesus as many times as possible); thank u; forgive me rudeness.

    Source(s): how will the gov't try to keep population constant? by changing dna from two strands to three strands using the infamous unforgivable mark of the beast; better hide, homie. hide ur kids, hide ur wife, antichrist is flyin' thru town. take ur glocks out and shoot that son of a bytch down. he's an s-o-b 'cuz his mother is a 12th generation prostitute to jews and hindus. funny thing is that she pretends to be a virgin; forgive me.

    Excess sodium is not the only thing to watch out for in a diet, you know.

    Apart from the relatively high sodium content, the Japanese diet is very healthy. It is high in oily fish, vegetables and fermented foods, all of which are very good for you.

    What's more, the incidence of obesity in Japan is very low, partly due to the diet, partly due to a greater propensity for getting exercise, and partly due to a societal expectation for one not to become overweight. 

    This means Japan does not suffer from the high numbers of people dying young from obesity-related diseases that countries like the US have, which would drag the average age down.

    On their islands, Japanese people have been marrying other Japanese people (and NOT marrying people from outside Japan) for millennia.  This isolated breeding has gradually created a pool of humans that are physically distinct from other homo sapiens.  One of the distinctions allows their bodies to contain a higher level of dissolved salts, and a commensurate higher level of saturation, without this impairing their circulatory systems the way it often does with older, non-Japanese peoples.  (This might also have to do with behaviors unique to Japanese culture.)

    Another distinction is longevity.  It's pointless to wonder what, exactly, is the cause of this longevity - because it is likely restricted to those with the uniquely-over-bred Japanese genetic heritage and can't be reproduced by a non-Japanese homo sapiens who simply imitates Japanese diet and behavior.

    Beyond the question of "Blue Zone" longevity on Okinawa:  If you glance around the world, any place you find that breeding opportunities are cut-off from potential mates on other landmasses by geographical features (deserts, mountain ranges, oceans), you'll notice that the people within those cut-off boundaries have INTRA-bred rather than EXTRA-bred so long that their population has begun to express genetic differentiations or specializations that the rest of the world's population has not.  This is how Europeans became white, and how Africans became resistant to malaria, and so on.  It can be seen in smaller and smaller scale in such places as Madagascar, Australia, Korea, and Japan.  If all Humanity lived together on one big continent so there were no barriers to extra-breeding, we would all look more or less alike (reddish-brown skin, black hair, almond eyes, rounded noses with low bridges) and our longevity would be the same everywhere.  Indeed, it only takes a couple of generations of extra-breeding for all the offspring to return to that model, and that natural state describes about 40% of all homo sapiens alive today.

    The distinctions (that many of us mistake for archetypes of "race") are merely the temporary specializations from exclusive intra-breeding, which require protective isolation by geographical barriers in order to continue (much like certain enterprises can only flourish behind protective trade barriers).  As soon as extra-breeding across the geographical barriers becomes practical, those specializations like longevity start to disappear.
