Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen) explores the world of science. He holds a panel with four experts, and asks them about how "techmology" has made our lives better. When the panel tries to explain evolution using the term "Homo sapiens," Ali denies that he is one. Ali asks creationist Dr. Kent Hovind what "techmology" he uses, specifically if he uses a toilet, and if he flushes. When Hovind says yes, Ali replies that there's evidence backstage to the contrary. Borat looks at America's pastime, baseball, taking in a Savannah Sand Gnats game, where he entertains the crowd with his emotional rendition of Kazakhstan's national anthem, and offers to bribe the umpire with "40,000 tampons -- no applicator." Later, he has an unpleasant experience in the Sand Gnats' locker room. Ali G interviews Ralph Nader, and wants to know, "What's the big deal about the rainforests?" When Nader points out that aboriginal tribes live there, Ali is unimpressed. "Why would anyone wanna live there with the risk of a monkey dropping one on your head?" Ali also attends an anti-nuclear protest rally at an old nuclear testing site in Nevada, where he tries to impress one hippie girl by telling her about the massive new McDonald's in Staines. Ali also interviews former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, asking him, "Does all of us really have bones or is it just what the media want us to believe?" Ali G gets upset when Koop informs him that he is definitely going to die one day.
