my mistake on the apple
corn is pretty shit, wheat has way more energy plus what they had is nothing like modern day corn, they had that purple maize shit.
also wheat and barley were native to Anatolia in like 2000bc, but when farming happened people started trading until it was everywhere, just like how horses did not originate in Europe but they were bred and traded.
in eurasia crops/animals could be moved east to west without changing the climate too much. If you were an incan and tried to bring a potato to the Navajo that shit would rot and not grow

If we are talking about why did the Europeans have a technologic advantage over the natives, I don't think we have to look at the available crops (China has been one of the most advanced civilizations of all history and all they had was rice, which is far harder to grow than corn and wheat).
I think both natives and Europeans had the resources to thrive, but what natives of both north and south America didn't have was the need to constantly improve their technology in order to survive. America is way more generous than Europe and natives managed to survive and thrive with basic plantations, hunting a lot, and without the actual need to trade since they already had most of what they needed.

I never usually go out at night, but one time I really needed to get something to a mailbox which I live about one block away from. So I went out and about halfway down the block two niggers tried to jump me. I got lucky and a car drove by which make them scared so they ran away. I ran back to my house thinking nope nope nope and I haven't gone out after dark since. You've got balls to be able to run around at night like that.

Well, if all else fails, bring a friend with you. You should try to avoid any dark alleys, openings, passages, or any area where someone can hide. Run as far to the opposite of the road as you can. If your area has a history of violence, run somewhere else. If you see someone sprinting directly towards you, whip out your phone and call the police. Shouting into the phone to the police loud enough may be enough to scare them off. Make sure that you run directly towards home as fast as you can manage. And don't ever carry anything valuable (aside from the phone) on your person.

Me and my friend were really drunk and we wondered from 1am to 6am at night and I was 15. I regret a lot
