Sure, but that doesn't alter the fact that Flanders is what first comes to mind, and Poirot far outshines everything else I associate with Belgium.

Yes this is the first thing you think but Jalisco is not being biased, this is not accurate.
Mexico's national team is ranked 7th in the world and the only country in the top 10 to be moving up.
Chivas, one of their professional teams is among the best sides in the world and is 100% Mexican.
Think "good at soccer" next time.

well that's why they bad at it... you see mexicans everywhere even i my neighborhood play soccer 24/7 yet they never even come close once to winning the world cup.

For me, the mechanism of Antikythera, which is due to receive one of the most thorough tests in modern forensic Archaeology. An MRI scan.
Results of this examination will be available to the scientific community by the end of 2005.
Let's see, will they manage to actually construct a working replica?
