    Swimming is really the only event in either olympics that I watch. And there have really been some great races so far. I loved the relay from last night, that was so close.
    I also used to be big into track but not so much anymore since I don't really know any of the people currently in the field.

    I haven't seen them. *runs off to look it up*

    I rather liked the Chinese gymnasts, though.
    Have you heard of people with short fuses? Well, I have no fuse at all, and there's a thousand could testify to it if I hadn't stilled their tongues for good.

    That is much better than the Croation Water Polo team. The entire team looks like Freddy Mercury from Queen.

    Default Portions of Opening Ceremonies Were Faked

    I keep hearing how the opening ceremonies for these Olympics was the coolest ever... Perhaps it looked that way because it was faked?

    http://www.abcnews.go.com/Internatio...5565191&page=1

    (EXCERPT)

    In recent days the Chinese Olympics organizers have admitted to faking the "footprint" fireworks that dazzled television audiences around the world.

    And today they conceded that the perfect little girl who stole the show while singing "Ode to the Motherland" wasn't singing at all. She was lip synching for another little girl who was deemed -- for the good of the country -- not cute enough for China's national image.

    well, I thought it was OBVIOUS that she wasn't singing... maybe it was just me, but that seemed like a no-brainer to me.


    Man, Canada sucks! EVERY OTHER COUNTRY HAS AT LEAST ONE FRIGGIN MEDAL!

    Michael Phelps Captures 4th Gold of Beijing Games

    BEIJING -- Michael Phelps continued his dominance of the
    swimming events on Wednesday morning, with a world-record
    victory in the 200-meter butterfly in 1:52.03. It was the
    fourth gold medal of the Games for Phelps, who is trying to
    break Mark Spitz's record of seven gold medals in one
    Olympics, which Spitz set in 1972. Phelps swims again later
    tonight in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay.

    Michael Phelps Adds 2 Gold Medals in One Night

    BEIJING -- The United States 4x200-meter freestyle relay team
    helped Michael Phelps keep his gold-medal streak alive
    Wednesday morning. The relay victory, in a
    world-record-smashing 6 minutes 58.56, helped Phelps earn his
    fifth medal of these Games, as he attempts to break Mark
    Spitz's record of seven gold medals in one event, which Spitz
    set in 1972. Earlier in the night, Phelps had earned his
    fourth gold medal with a world-record performance in the
    200-meter butterfly.

    I KNOW! The guy is a machine!
    Is he really a person? Maybe he's a robot. Maybe SKYNET is real and he is a prototype. Maybe we're all going to die at the hands of Michael Phelps.

    He'll tell us he wants to show us something out in the ocean. and he'll lead us really far out into the water. Then he'll just keep swimming until he reaches another continent, whereas we'll drown long before then.

    That whole thing is just ridiculous. Why even have that little girl sing if you're not going to show her. And now there's all that controversy about their womens gymnastics team.



    As for Phelps, he is just amazing to watch. Especially that relay from last night. They finished about 5 sec sooner than the 2nd place team, and for swimming that's a pretty big lead.

    Well, the idea was that they wanted good singing, but they also wanted a good face. I'm not saying it's right, just that that's their reason.
    I thought the actual singer was actually pretty cute. Of course, the other one was extremely cute...

    I don't know why anyone is surprised... that is how society works. Appearance rates very highly for some reason.

    I think that is why China is going to become the new super power, they are not concerned with people feelings.

    How much would it suck to be the little girl singing her heart out who isn't cute enough? People are SEVERELY fucked up.

    I saw highlights of one of Micheal Phelps's Gold-clinching races - I'm convinced he was a dolphin in his previous life.

    He looks like it when he pushes off the wall and swims underwater. Insanity is right. Not only winning golds but breaking world records doing it. In every event.

    When two fit, it makes you think
    I got the cute one, my woman
    She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
    And it's her loving that's a wonderful thing.
    Lovin' yes we are, it's such a wonderful thing
    When two fit it makes you think
    See us both in the black
    She lays on me so relaxed.
