15 years on birth control and I had no idea
I have teeny tiny muscles.  I've always been a weakling, and it turns out that taking birth control pills has not been helping me out.  I just figured it was genetic.  Then I stopped taking birth control and started lifting weights and all of a sudden I had...

Now I'm even more glad that I never took birth control pills. Of course I never work out, either, but still...

Perhaps missing from this is how the cycle continues as neighborhoods become blighted and then swallowed up by profiteering developers ready to build a new neighborhood that the remaining locals can no longer afford to live in.
