That line was actually the lowest in a Triology Chinese curses that were placed on a generation in a small part of China in the 16th century. All through their lifetime, the experienced a lot. I mean a whole lot.

They experienced the greatest breakthroughs in technological advancements, medicine, architecture, etc.
At least for a while

Then things got really interesting. All good and smooth sailing isn't always interesting, is it? These people got to find that hard the hard way when things started getting interesting.
