That kitten is not looking at me the right way. I take issue with it.

It's plotting something I tells ya.

That cat is planning to over-hype some commercial event and flood the airways with it. Kitties already own Youtube, now they want to own TV.

Watch out, and more important come to F.com to post your bitterness.

The cat is actually contemplating which thrilling Olympic event to watch first: synchronised swimming, shot-put, rowing, archery, dressage, javelin, shooting, weightlifting or triathlon. It's in a quandary with so much enthralling excitement around.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

he is emitting a sense of ennui to his owner because the TW channel is showing taekwondo again instead of something interesting.

Not a hater when it comes to on field (floor, pool, track, etc...) performance. Despite the cheating, sport is the fairest thing we have left in society.

Kudos to the swimmers (even if they were chosen from a young age to represent the glorious nation in swimming), it is the culmination of a life's long dream/work.

:lol: :lol: :lol: And yet we salute Nadia Comencie and the ilk and not to mention 'academies' that comb talent and train them worldwide, but we reserve our condescension for the communist state. And yeah right, it doesn't light a fire under the western behinds. :roflmao:

What kind of horse shit NHS imagery was used during the opening ceremonies? :lol: :lol: :lol: Danny Boyle's celebration of the NHS with dancing nurses, bouncing patients, and huge hospital beds? :D :D That certainly isn't socialist realism! But a bullshit facade! And to me such public health dick-waving has no place in opening ceremonies. If anything it is a criticism of Boyle against Cameron and such cheap theatrics aren't proper in a celebration of sports. Didn't like the socialist imagery during the Beijing Summer Games opening ceremonies and don't like even stronger currents of it at these games (proving once against that the UK is more Communist than China). :D

And shame on them for not having a minute of silence at the ceremonies for the Israelis (in memory of the 40th anniversary of the '72 Munich terrorism attacks). To me, that reiterates the anti-Semitism that still is evident in salon society in Europe and amongst the corrupt chattering classes that love to collaborate.
So I got an expresso and a hot burrito!

I must admit I thought this was a celebration of Great Britain's accomplishments in disease prevention and treatment - the discovery of penicillin and whatnot.

I'll admit I wasn't always paying that much attention.
I liked the ceremonies though; thought they were suitably eccentric for England.
