In all seriousness, this was an entertaining and enlightening video to watch.

Last week during the Olympics I tuned into the bronze medal match women's wrestling in time to see a Canadian girl get thrown around like a rag doll by a Mongolian girl. I have to wonder if the cultural importance of wrestling has an impact on their dominance on the mat.

Good on you for trying, Wild Bill.

Did you get drunk? That might help.

I can see the parallel with the Highland Games. Most if not all of those events look like they were spawned by drunken boasting.
