I'd just like to start it off with this :lol:
Not as important as Mafia V at this time. Watching Olympics does not make the wait any shorter. B)) This is a good time for everyone to join the peace club and change out of your signature to pass the word No more war. Except in Mafia games :D Edited by akaslickster

Watching the swimming and horse events. Looks like Australia won't be going as hot as we would all like in the swimming this time round! See how the Brits won the cycling. Awsome, what determination and heart she must have.

GO THE AUSSIES!

I've only heard bits and pieces about the displacement of a lot of the citizens to make way for the building of the stadiums for the Olympics. If half of what I've heard is true, I would be on the warpath if it happened to me. At what cost to its people will China go to prove that they are growing up as a nation?

Look at the mess that has been created by the daming of the Yanksee (not sure how to spell it). People displacement, ecological catastrophe etc due to the flooding, however on the other hand cleaner electricity is needed for such an enormous population. Huge problem.

What is your source for that? The only thing I could find was an article on japantoday.com that mentions two Japanese reporters that were beaten by Chinese paramilitary police, and the article says they sustained "light," injuries, for which the Chinese government, says they regretted, but basically that they were involved in a restricted area. It seems to me as reporters they must have known the risk they were taking onto themselves, given China's organizational tactics, before they took on that task. Notice I AM NOT MAKING A MORAL JUDGEMENT, as frankly, I think that the violence, while tragic, is none of my business. Obviously, I'm not Chinese or Japanese. And I have yet to be convinced that honoring another nation's sovereignty is a bad idea. Unless of course, you want to talk about doing away with the nation-state altogether, but then you would have countless cultures, and religions, and hybrids "fighting," for space. Anyway, in general, no pun intended, I came for the brain busters,...

There goes Sania or rather , here comes Sania(to India). :P Of course, because of her injury. :) I am an optimist, but I don't want to be over-optimistic. OK, I will concede that India can achieve a realistic target of 10 medals. So GO INDIA, GO!!!!! :D

:huh:

I dont think you do because Great Britain had a 14 year old in the mens 10m synchro diving - and, believe me, EVERYONE knew about that, (he's also gonna be in the single diving event to!!) :o

We may have came last, but he was AMAZINGLY good for a 14 year old! - and personally I think we were robbed some synchronising points - fair scores for execution because the splashes were there, but the synchro was perfect (I believe better than some countries that managed to get higher execution marks!!) <_<

Anyone other Brits out there see Tom Daly in the diving and have any views? (It was 7.30 in the morning our time!!)

Well done to our gold and bronze medalists in the womens 400m!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry to you Americans and Katie Hoff supporters!) ;)
