turns out there was a male equivalent to Anna Nicole Smith. I didn't think I'd be watching more than a few minutes of this, but it was just too much fun.

Never thought of Tom Waites as a comic act.

{{ This is fun, annual event where various actors read out historical letters. This one is Matt Berry and Peter Capaldi. Contains some strong language! }}

Had to look that up to find what happened to the zaporozhian cossacks. Turns out nothing, for nobody could do anything with them.  The letter itself is actually not historical: some other group of Cossacks had done a somewhat satirical reply to a sultan, and in the 18th century it was used as a model into which biting insults were rolled in to produce the letter we have today.  Most likely the Sultan never actually got a reply.

{{ Yeah I heard there is some dispute over how authentic it is, if its partly real and added to later or entirely made up about 100 years later.
That Letters series of vids is really good, some great actors and interesting often amazing Letters. This is another Capaldi one, but it's a first-hand account of an incredible historic event, the WW1 Xmas Armistice, and Capaldi shows in his reading just why he is so captivating a performer for me, he doesn't just read it he feels it. }}

People here get all up in arms about illegal immigrants crossing from Mexico into this country, but apparently it's real easy to just accidentally cross over into mexico. Laughing

If you think that is harrowing just try 'accidently' driving into Scotshobbitland from England. You are immediately surrounded by border midges who bite your bits until you are crying with irritation. Either that, or getting your car bumper splattered with low flying Haggis roadkill. As for the language difficulties, forget it, even Google translate gives up. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

{{ Midges are just taking a nibble to check your blood for alcohol content as you enter the country, foreigners arriving is one of the few times they get to eat and not get drunk at same time, that's why normally they fly so erratically. Nod

And the knack to avoiding haggis collision is just remember the legs on one side of their body are longer than on the other, so they can go faster round hills, but the male goes clockwise and the female counterclockwise (which sides got longer legs is how you tell the sexes, well you could take a more traditional look but I'd rather wrestle an angry lion, it'd be safer. Haggis may not be big and strong, but they make up for it in sheer crabbitness. Scots boffins have speculated this is because they only get a chance to mate when they collide with a female coming round the hill the other way at speed. As a result haggis mating is brief, conducted at high speed and usually leaves both parties with concussion. Which would make anyone crabbit. Nod }}
