Is it the case, the farther away from the equator you live, the better you get?
Not very long ago someone got killed drawing a cartoon.
Love those Scandinavian.
In Denmark, a country that has spawned more foreign fighters per capita than almost anywhere else, the port city of Aarhus is taking a novel approach by rolling out a welcome mat for returning jihadists.

I don't think so. It was aided and funded by US, Saudi Arab, Qatar. Now went out of control.

This is not a new phenomena. There are other studies about Nepalese Sherpa as well.
It may not be visual but human #evolution  is still a happening. 

Edit: (Thanks to the moderator for pointing the below source)

Press release about the research.
The University of Utah, Health Care, Public Affairs
8,000-Year-Old Mutation Key to Human Life at High Altitudes
http://healthcare.utah.edu/publicaffairs/news/current/08-17-2014-Tibetan-High-Altitude-Prchal.php

The research paper, behind a paywall.
Nature Genetics (2014)
A genetic mechanism for Tibetan high-altitude adaptation
http://www.nature.com/ng/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/ng.3067.html
In an environment most people struggle to survive, Tibetans thrive in the thin air of the Tibetan Plateau and now an international study has uncovered one mechanism their bodies use to cope at high altitudes.

This 'hijab revolution' is only less than three decade old. This is not an Islamic dress code. This is more like a political statement. I hope this fashion will disappear like bell bottom pants did.

It is really unfortunate that they have managed to force this to the high humid country like Indonesia and Malaysia.

There can be no compromise between True Believers, who believe that they are fighting for God and get their orders straight from Heaven. "God Wills It" shouted the Crusaders and butchered Muslims and Jews. "Allah is the Greatest" shout fanatical Muslims and behead their enemies. "Who is like you among the Gods!" cried the Maccabees, and annihilated all fellow Jews who had adopted Greek manners. ................

I can't write.
I take the words of others.
RIP Robin Williams.

"
‘Never again will wake up, 
never again will bear
the endless—endless burden
of painful waking—’
It was told to him
when the moon sank down—in the strange darkness
by a silence like the neck of a camel that might have shown up
at his window side. "

Taken from the poem,  "One Day Eight Years Ago"
by Jibanananda Das
Translated by Faizul Latif Chowdhury

Doesn't sound very Godly. It more like very political and strategic. I am not taking away the good intention of those people.

[ keep in mind, God actually completely destroyed a city once for the sodomy]

He seems like a real Islamic scholar, but he just ignored the fact that Arabian peninsula is the last place on earth where slavery is abolished.
