Well, no, not quite. It's almost bordering on the government telling the people what to think.

I was reading an article about how this little girl in China was training for weight lifting. 2012, probably. The reporter asked her what she liked to do. "Lifting weights." "Besides lifting weights." "Lifting weights."

LOL I see. To be fair that's a response lots of kids would utter.

What that kid wouldn't have though, is a normal academic career. See that to me is the crux of the issue. Where I live it is a common complaint that all kids go on the same academic careers, and no one really goes to the sport schools. That's why we don't get medals. One wonders why we aren't accused of being cruel because we force kids to study at a young age.

In China they pick good kids to enrol in these ~notorious~ sport schools. The rest go on the traditional path to uni the rest of the world is familiar with. Because the kids who enter sport schools don't get to experience a ~normal~ scholastic experience, it is very easy to brush such an anomaly aside as an example of cruelty.

Yeah, go Michael Phelps. Eleven gold medals at two Olympics... the previous record was nine and over a longer period...

And Phelps is still going. If he manages to get his eight golds in Beijing, Speedo, his sponsor, will give him $1 million.

Canada... um. Still nothing. Remember how yesterday I said we might get a gold? The divers placed fifth.

Also, I checked some old stats. At the way things are going, Michael Phelps will have won more gold medals at Beijing than Team Canada did at Athens and Sydney.

When Canada was parading the fact for them was something like they're the only country to have hosted the Olympics and not won a gold medal.
Wow. At least it's pretty legendary :P

Women's Gymnastics tends to have all these really flowery flourishes in their performances. They break out in extravagant dance all the time on the floor routines. Not dance-like gymnastic moves, but dance moves(at least in some cases). I don't remember the Men's Gymnastics competitors doing this, at least not to this extreme extent. I may be wrong, but I just recall it being that way. Though I'll admit I did not see as much men's as women's. So yeah; I don't think the men do as much of the flourishes. Which is very disappointing. It's hilarious enough when the women do it-- the men would be downright lmao-tastic.

Just a thought.

Ha, the fireworks were mostly digital, the girl was just pretty, the guards wore diapers, the minority kids were fake, and they stripped women to make sure their body contours were ideal!

That felt good. :P

The title of the thread is BEIJING OLYMPICS not OLYMPICS OPENING CEREMONY.

In on-topic news, Canada wins stuff! Gold, silver and bronze medals in rowing and wrestling. I watched a bit of rowing yesterday, it's quite fun.

Can't wait for tonight's match against China. o_____________o

MICHAEL PHELPS

He did it! One million from Speedo, eight gold medals in Beijing, fourteen total, ten of which were individual...

It was so close... unbelievable.
