    beijing 2008

    For the last week there as been an abundance of television programs making reports about china, some have been really quite surreal, most obviously focusing on the smog issue. But i was just wondering if anyone is looking forward to the olympics? and if so is there any particular events you are anticipating?

    I'm looking forward to the WuShu event, a few people I knew tried out for the US team so it'll be interesting to see if any one I know is on there.

    yeah I had been looking forward to it all this time and just saw on line it never came to be. They are running a wushu comp along side the Olympics but I doubt it'll make it over.

    Seeing some things on the news recently that quite alot of Chinese terrorist groups are plotting attacks on the Olympic Games which really does suck. But apparently security is very very tight. I hope it doesn't put to much of a damper on the running of the games, always good to watch the events such as boxing and football aswell as the track events.
    I'm a person just like you
    but I like to fuck some shoes
    On the sofa or in my bed
    It's better than getting head
    Tie the laces on my schlong
    'cos of a nike air max it's standing strong

    normal sex life i don't need

    Well its all done with, london next!!! Britain did really well, i was hoping we would hold on to third overall but 4th is pretty good if you ask me. Usain bolt's 100m was probably my favourite moment of the games.

    He was funny in interviews, he kept getting things wrong about who won what and there was a little brittish diver who is really young (tom daley) that kept correcting him!!

    when he was getting interviewed by an american he kept ignoring the questions and kept asking the guy who he thought won. that guy just fits the essex/chav stereotype perfectly.

    Completely, he mentioned he wanted to get a mcdonalds after and the BBC presenter said "or any other fast food chain" so it wasn't backing any particular chain. He kind of gave a simple looking stare at the presenter and then just said "yeah, whatever, whatever".

    Yes Britain did brilliantly, to everyones amazement. Haha. I didn't watch much of it, but the BMX-ing event was great. First time in the Olympics as well I think.
    Never will I bow my head in shame. I live this life for no one else. Save your judgement for yourself.

    I personally liked when the Cuban Tae Kwon Do fighter smoked the ref in the face. And then instead of apologizing, he and his manager just kept justifying it.
