    The Olympics

    They're happening again for some reason. It should be pretty good. I like countries.

    This is happening too: http://gawker.com/5928651/mary-poppi...n-the-ceremony

    I think my expectations for this ceremony are far too high, but that's okay because it's good to hope. I'm also hoping for a strong showing by the U.S. dive team. Unlike the Winter Olympics, there aren't a lot of events with twists and flips and airborne ostentation, so I'm stuck with diving. Gymnastics doesn't exist.

    How is everyone else Olympics?
    Look at all the fun we're having.

    I am going to watch all the DPRK games and cheer on the DPRK team during the opening ceremonies.

    Going to be as great as the 2012 World Cup.

    I saw the Olympic torch go by while I was in the U.K. a bit earlier.

    That was fun.

    I don't think I'll have anything else to do with the Olympics though. I never really watch it on my own.

    Yeah, that was pretty incredible. I didn't get to watch the Beijing opener, but I find it hard to believe it was better than. The Stewart Lee cameo was especially effective.

    i don't like how you guys are talking as if i missed the opening ceremony.

    there's no way i missed the opening ceremony, because i was told 7pm.

    DID I MISS THE FREAKING OPENING CEREMONY?
    sometimes I wish for falling
    wish for the release
    wish for falling through the air
    to give me some relief

    because falling's not the problem;
    when i'm falling, i'm in peace.
    it's only when i hit the ground
    it causes all the grief

    No you did not miss it. Its only being delayed because NBC said so and NBC is the only company that is broadcasting it in the US.

    i'm a little miffed that i got the time right but i'm still going to miss the opening ceremony. within ten minutes of the beginning of the broadcast, a severe thunderstorm moved in and we lost signal. 8(
