This is our project of pointing out what the Naruto manga never revealed till the end, or so we thought.
These are NOT plot holes, but things which Kishimoto-sensei did not elaborate further. Nonetheless, we are tormented by the unknown and unrevealed, and piqued and curious. So, we have dug them out and rank these un-revelations (by our degree of being tormented) for vigorous club discussions and debates.
Also feel free to check out our manga club slideshow presentations below.
Hi mates, this is the continuation of my ratings on online stock media sites - focusing on vectors here.

There are at least 64 mountains on Earth with elevations between 7,000 metres and 7,500 metres in height. The vast majority of these mountains are located on the edge of the Indian and Eurasian continental plates.
Topping this class of mountains is Ismoil Somoni Peak, the highest mountain in Tajikistan. It was within the territory of the former Russian Empire and the former Soviet Union before the area became independent as Tajikistan. The mountain is named after Ismail Samani, a ruler of the Samanid dynasty.
1960 - 2017 Asia: This table depicts countries with the highest percentage of elderly persons (ages 65 and above) in their population (Source: World Bank).
At 27.05%, Japan has the highest percentage of elderly persons in its population i.e. more than 1in 4 Japanese is elderly. Between 1960 to 2017, Japan has also seen the highest percentage jump for its elderly population, growing the elderly percentage by 21.43 percentage points since 1960.
Developed Asian Economies
Developed cities like Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore also face rapid ageing in their populations coupled with declining birth rates. It is projected that South Korea's elderly population will increase to 26 per cent of the total population by 2032 and 41 per cent of the population by 2060, presenting a massive demographic headache for the government.
Singapore faces a similar conuundrum. Its population is projected to reach 6.34 million in 2030 and an estimated 28 per cent of the population, or 1.8 million people, will be elderly. By 2050, the elderly population is expected to reach 47 per cent of the total population. That is, if the republic is unable to reverse the trends on birth rate and immigration.

These are the longest rivers in South America. The King of rivers, the Amazon River, tops the list at 6,992km. It is also the longest river in the world, although the Nile River is only a breath away at 6,853km.
The Paraná River is the second-longest river, with a distance of 4,880km, running through Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. The Tocantins–Araguaia river system runs third at 3,650km in total length.
The world has a combined active military size of around 19.5 million troops or about 0.26% of Earth's 7 billion population. Collectively, this means Mother Earth has about 20 million active troops she can immediately activate and rally to defend against a hypothetical alien invasion.
However, short of a unifying alien invasion, 20 million troops spread across 170+ countries still mean great potential for deadly conflicts within Earth itself. Of the top 20 largest active military forces. Asia accounts for 11 countries (or 13, if we include Middle Eastern countries). That makes up about 20% or 1/5 of the 48 countries in Asia. I would say, this is one big nervous continent!
