Thanks to Paul for sending me this video in response to my post on the load of dodgy “health products” I’ve seen over in the states. The video is factual, enlightening and very entertaining, though it does have that “Michael Moore style” preachy voice over. It makes some interesting arguments in both directions of a lot of interesting topics ranging from surprisingly far reaching effects of anabolic steroids on American culture and society to the worrying continuing use of amphetamines by the US air force and it’s tendency to lead to unnecessary aggression and trigger happy decisions at the command of hundred pound bombs.
NB: If you just can’t wait to get the dvd someone has put it on youtube, you can always watch it there and if you like it buy the DVD as a gift for a friend who would enjoy it or could use the advice. Personally I think that would be a much more touching anti-piracy slogan but thats just my two cents.
