Vova and Olga - The World's Best Jugglers in Club Passing

Watch this video for some amazing juggling. Vova & Olga galchenko; the brother-sister teenager duo are the best jugglers the world has ever seen. The Russian pair who started juggling with clubs after school as an after school hobby made it their passion and soon turned it into an obsession - They currently hold the world record for two people juggling 10 clubs between them in 378 catches. They can pass 9 clubs a 1000 times without a stop or a drop! They have broken the 9, 10, 11 and 12 club passing endurance records.

Some of their records are:
• Ten Clubs - 378 passes caught
• Eleven Clubs - 152 passes caught
• Twelve Clubs - 54 passes caught

They were recently featured on the Oprah Winfrey show and have become celebrities. Time Magazine featured them some time ago and called them the best jugglers in the world. Coming from a small poor town in Russia they moved to America a few years ago; learnt English while attending school. After years of struggle Vova has recently won his immigration to the USA. Call these two child prodigies.

Donald Trump on President Bush!

Watch this video. Some sage words from billionaire Donald Trump. Any sane person will agree that the war was not necessary and was a sheer waste of money. Trump has risked himself by being so brazen here. Trump probably doesn’t care even if he lost a few deals in real estate and a few millions. He has stuck it out. It’s about time America realized its follies and took some corrective measures. Bush might well be the worst President ever in American history. My respect for Trump can only increase for his views here. It indeed is true that America is hated outside as Trump says. Most Americans do not know how they are perceived by the outside world. Trump travels extensively and has experienced it first hand. Clearly the country and its leaders have screwed up and it’s all a terrible situation now. The country is not being run well and the citizens gotta do something about it.
