comment Do white Australians have a distinct look?
@SonnyOrdell Yes, it is a general case and here is nothing special about Australians. Perhaps there is something special about Caucasian Australians but I doubt.

comment Do white Australians have a distinct look?
@nico I agree with your scrutiny, as the result is not cross-validated. However, it is not hard to design a test when people see two faces (single, not averaged) and two countries (and their task is to match them). I bet that even for nearby countries (e.g. Germany and France) one can guess with >50%.

comment How does the brain's energy consumption depend on mental activity?
Thanks, though I am far from making analogy with computer, especially when it comes to the information processed. Actually, the energy usage (at least - in principle) can be measured by heat generation, even if nothing is known about the process. "You assume in your question that a mathematician solving a differential equation needs higher mental activity than a child reading a book. Is this legitimated?" - hard to say; better to compare a mathematician during a few hour competition vs control.
