Maybe not weaker. Definitely can't spell as well.
Beat me to the comment.
I can valuch for that!
Many schools have got rid of gym and out lawed tag.
It appears there is at least one that doesn't teach English.
Far too many.
Not sure how the ability to throw a punch or my pocket knife is going to help me withstand a nuclear blast, but anyway many men were unfit to serve in WWII too as well. Does the idea that we now have a lot more unfit men mean we are not spending enough on gym class? Probably not. My guess is that it just means that fewer of us work on the farm and other similar industries.
I think the unanswered question is how we get the enemy to put their hands on the wall.
A few questions. 1. Is English your first language? 2. In WWII, when the draft happened, no one was expected to be a bad-ass. That is a trait we have given characters in movies because it's more fun. To use a Saving Private Ryan analogy, I'm sure there were a lot more "Uphams" than there were anyone else. The soldiers of the time were simple men which were called upon to do insane and sometimes extraordinary things.
