Pretty much the same story would happen at nearly every company in the world. Keeping salaries opaque is one of the major techniques employers use to control employees.

"... recent research suggests that a few simple changes—among them the adoption of a more babylike skull shape into adulthood—likely played essential roles in the final push to bird-hood."
Modern birds appeared to emerge in a snap of evolutionary time. But new research illuminates the long series of evolutionary changes that made the transformation possible

The article mentions that humans likely went through paedomorphosis in some capacity -- which might relate to that.

Gotta wait for the punchline but it's funny.

Childhood restored... well, maybe once pluto is reinstated as a planet.
After decades of debate, scientists just gave Brontosaurus back to the people. Eat your heart out, Apatosaurus.

I'd love to see this data normalised against median incomes for the country, otherwise it's a bit meaningless outside the context of compare relative travel costs if you earn USD.

Today, I took my first look at the data."_
The jumps are generally plane ticket purchases, with three exceptions (one fun, two not-so-fun): 13-April-2014: Island Peak Climbing Permit; 25-Sept-2014: Passport Kerfuffle in Namibia; 23-April-2015: Theft. Daily Expenses Across Countries. After cleaning the data from outlier costs (e.g., ...

Interesting read. One of the comments on the article site makes me a bit curious about the cost discrepancy.  I wonder if a similar pattern would apply if your style of tourism is different (i.e. not backpacker, more mainline tourist).  You would need to spend more money in all the different aspects (accom, travel, food?, attractions, etc).  Would that chart still have the same relative layout?

"You never prove anything with science; you only disprove."

What it does do however is add to the weight of evidence that it might be cavitation :)

+Ben Ihle I agree: I'm fascinated by the WHY ... that's the hard part to figure out, though.
