funny how they would do an expose about our sports and then mock the rest of the world for our progress, but , at the olympics this year i was seriously wondering (as though it were even allowed) that if their women were to compete against the worlds in events such as say, swimming, what they would wear?

wonder what an arabic built motorcycle or even race track would look like.

what do you think, it will look like an airplane? It'll look like a motorcycle. And you want to see an Arab built track? How about the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu-Dhabi, or Losail Int. in Qatar?

What a stupid thing to say.

I highly doubt arabs themselves built that track...they pay western companies to come in and build.

and a motorcycle that looks like an airplane? even more stupid.

So, in Texas, when you see a racetrack, do you wonder how a white person would have built it? Since we just hire Mexicans to build it?

They pay western construction contractors to oversee, but require that the contractors hire local labor.

Same as in the oil biz: Us engineering, foriegn grunt.

They sell a version on ebay that looks very similar. It ships in pieces and you bolt\weld it together.

Wow! that was really good. A truely great production. Thanks for posting !

I don'nt see any of our TV channels doing anything like this. AlJazera has this on their website too and extended interviews from Guy Martin, W.Dunlop, etx. That are worth a listen as well. http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/...442860175.html

The best TV coverage we get over here are highlights 6 months after the race and I don't even think we get that anymore. Good thing for the interweb.


On a related topic. Macau GP next weekend.
