Dang subby, go take a nap or something.

The only faking done was the rowing. Everything else is just trying to bring audio as well as visual into the living room.

I had a chance to help a buddy of mine who's a sound guy get set up for a college basketball game. I helped him set what he called a "swish mike" and a "squeak mike" on the rims. (Okay, I stood next to the ladder...) Anyway, this was over 20 years ago.

Nothing new here.

Next thing subby's going to say is those guys on the sidelines at football games aren't listening for UFOs

Well, the audio should sound like the athletes involved: fake and enhanced.

The tip off for me was the crowd cheering for Ryback during girls gymnastics.

It's all fake. The announcers aren't actually at the games, just a sound studio. Easier to know who to talk about and who to downplay when you've already seen the results.

When I was watching last night they were actually talking about the results while showing the event.

"She has a bad routine here, let's watch."

Also, why do we get hours of dressage and a half hour of Judo? Who the fark makes these decisions?

Because Romney. If he owned a Judo competitor, you'd get more of that sport

You sound like you think he doesn't own a judo competitor.

Lipo: You sound like you think he doesn't own a judo competitor.


Well, he owned a judo competitor but doesn't anymore.
He had him taken out and shot after coming up lame in the prelims.
It's the humane thing to do apparently.

They need to stop micing up the athletes parents.

How dare you make such an accusation?? Just because a female swimmer from a nation with a proud history of doping beats her own best time by five seconds and beats the mens' gold medalist by a full second in the same event, doesn't mean that CHINA IS DOPING. Really, the fact that another Chinese swimmer was busted heading to the World Championship with 13 vials of human growth hormone says nothing about whether this particular swimmer, who shaved five seconds off her own best time, was artificially enhanced.

Really, you shouldn't slander the hard working athletes like that.

We faked the moon landing, after that, everything else is small potatoes. No news here.

I was all ready to be outraged, but then I remembered watching football in the 90's on T.V.. Good decision.

I eavesdropped on the Dean of Students and Sister Regina at the podium -- mics were down but I was at the soundboard hearing through the mic with headphones >:-D before another auditorium mass in high school -- hearing about how they'd found out *someone (*whistles*) must have a copy of the master key to the school...

/so you can bet your ass i am getting a kick
//so that's what that little pop-up/push-down toggle does under the slider for each individual input...
/monster soundboard, 12 chan

Much easier to fake when there is no sound in space. in a vacuum.
