Did you ever see Who is America? That was brilliant, some really insane stuff in that as well.
Yes. Although Kazakhstan a glorious country, it have a problem too : economic, social and Jew. It is why very important to make cultural learnings of America for make benefit glorious nation of Kazakhstan.

Interesting story on BBC news this morning re the Kazakhs (?) taking huge offence at Borat in the past but now they have adopted the "Very Nice" quote as a slogan for the tourist board :)
Haha, they absolutely should go along with that, no such thing as bad press. But yeah, plenty hate him, especially the little (gypsy/romani) village in Romania where he was shooting the first one, felt a bit sorry for them : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLeaVby ... ainChannel

Came across 'Moneyball' the other night, my attention spiked when Jonah Hill's character started touting his method for using stats to find under valued players rather than relying on old school scouts.

Thought I'd share in case others would enjoy as much as I did.

Based on this book which has a lot more detail

I read an article a while back which talked about the bias in the book and how things were construed to construct a compelling narrative. Interesting stuff and as always a useful exercise to get beyond the headlines.
Just ordered the book, thanks

fitting watch for US election day as touches on people in power
