20Something and Surviving

One World, One Dream

Today is the official opening of the Oympics and despite what these images may suggest I look forward to the Olympics. The Tradition of sitting around placing bets on who would trip and fall or choke due to pressure is always fun and sometimes financially rewarding. The only problem I have is the venue for this edition of the Olympics. Besides the smog China has a horrendous human rights record. Lets just hope that our 200 odd athletes make us proud.

  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh. Now I get Jeremy’s cartoon today! I’m not a big history fan, did Beijing treat people horribly?

    Don’t laugh. I’m serious.

  8. Oh you bunch of bitches.

    JFGI my ass.

    *hangs head for an hour, solidly and turns into that little girl from The Ring*

    BTW, Cath kid, Cam, does a brilliant impersonation of that scary kid when she sulks. Cath and I collapse into fits of giggles every time. Do you have any idea how hard it is for us to not laugh in front of her?

    OMG just thinking about it makes me want to screech with laughter.

  10. That’s a very good cartoon. Right at the heart of the matter.

    And yes, my personal opinion is that China should never have been allowed to host the Olympics. Unfortunately, having the worlds view directed at them will not really make a diference.
