    Thumbs up The Olympics

    Am I the only one who is annoyed by the obsession
    with national team accumulation of medals?
    It takes the fun out of it.

    It's not a war, folks!
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Gotta agree with you. And its kind of hard for most countries to compete with the U.S. and other big ones. And I don't like that. It should be fair for 'em all.

    But on the olympic subject: What's everyone's favorite event?

    I like halfpipe, and slalom skiing, and others. Except Ice dancing...that's boring.
    Why am I still here?

    I like the summer olympics best and my favorite event is the pole vaulting.

    but if i had to chose a fav event in winter it would be halfpipe.

    It just seems like there are so many events have corrupt judging, or judging that's incosistent. Why have judging for events that don't need it? (Like distance ski jumping)

    Alternate realities celebrate reality. If you cant handle the reality your in, then you wont be able to handle the one your attempting to escape to.
