    Actually, if to think deeply a little, this show demonstrates pretty well all nation-equality theories. You're a racist and its not an insult but a compliment!

            The horse thing really isn’t that weird. That part of the world is the original native range of horses. Horses hold cultural importance to many people worldwide but it would only make sense that horses would be most culturally important in their native lands.

                I love how this exposes the idea that you really don't need the Guinness World Record, to break a World Record. I hope this segment makes people think twice before giving Guinness a call.

                    One has to wonder how these mentally ill freaks keep managing to seize the reins of power in so many nations.

                    Humanity, please remember that you outnumber a man like Gurbanguly by over seven billion to one. You CAN kill him.

                              Enough wth smearing Duterte! He’s a beloved Philippine president! Enough with the white man telling what’s good for the brown man. Duterte is a real patriot fighting for the working class in our country! The West does not know this because your mainstream media is controlled by the establishment! Duterte is a strong anti-corruption president, making strong new ties in the international relations front instead of kissing USA’s arse as we have been doing since we were sold those United States by the Spaniards over a hundred yrs ago! You people don’t know sht. JOHN, have ur staff do proper research on mainstream media and our president! Our media has been controlled by the elites and the oligarchs of our country. And that is what is being picked up by the world, in the news front. You Americans will understand this due to the political revolution that Senator Sanders is leading in this 2020 presidential race. Media is being biased against Bernie. Same as Duterte, who’s a strong anti-establishment..But the Filipinos had enough of the abuse and has been woke, voter Duterte on a landslide victory. How can you people still smear on Duterte when since he’s been elected, his approval rating is on a stable high! 70-83% approval rating in the 2 yrs! That should say a lot! Narco-politics is real! And the radical statements he made were deliberate and planned. He did say in some of the interviews by Not the mainstream media, he said he had to be controversial. I say, there’s no such thing as bad PR! Ok kidding aside, I expected more of ur show to do better on judging things. I love ur show. But stop shttng on our leader. More power John!

                                everyone’s been saying “why didn’t guinness come on the show????” but it makes sense, unfortunately. gurbanguli is one of guinness world records bigger clients. if they went on this show to make fun of him, they wouldn’t be able to do any more business with him. also, any person who tries to officiate awards in Turkmenistan could be killed or “disappear” - they are one of the lowest on the human rights index - because he’s angry at them for making fun of him. it wouldn’t be unlike him.

                                it’s still not great. i think it’s awful that GWR even officiates stuff in oppressive countries, but this is probably why.

I ordered two of them, and the man at the dealership parts counter said, as he was looking it up, that there were only about 20 left in inventory in their system. It's an old, old car, so they're not making any more of this obscure part and no aftermarket company is making them either.
