I never finished reading this book. Decided to go through it again tonight and laughed alone at this ;

Question : What is the truest definition of globalization?

Answer: Princess Diana's death.

Question: How come?

Answer: An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk Scotch whiskey, followed closely by Italian paparazzi on Japanese motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines. This is posted by an American, using Bill Gate's technology, and you're probably reading this on a computer that uses Taiwanese chips and Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by Indian lorry-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexican illegals. That my friend, is globalization!
