This is why I hate these click bait headlines

In fact, I knew 17 of those 19 things1 about Kazakhstan. Who the fuck do you think you are assuming to know what I know?

Okay, I clicked, so the click baiting worked. But I ended up just pissed off at the author and his publication. It is not making me a happy customer.

1-I didn't know that Kazakhstan had the world's largest Chimney (#12), and I did not know all three of Kazakhstan world heritage sites (#16), although I did know two of the three (Tamgaly and the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi--I have been to the latter). I had not heard of the Saryarka plains. So technically I knew 17-2/3 of those 19 things.
