KushanMadman: I get more of a driven super-biatch feel. A precious snowflake would cry all night and tell all her frenemies about how it was the judges fault.

Maroney is going to spend the night planning her next meet. Or possibly killing a dog.

The men's swimming team needs to gird their loins tonight.

Poor snowflake. Did she make that same face when she didn't get a pony for her birthday?

msupf: fruitloop: there their theyre: Santa is a rather attractive black woman

What? My childhood was a lie! Time for some Ragu.

I fully expect that chubby kid and the phrase 'time for some Ragu' to become a meme. Make it so

"So that's where the penis goes!!!"

Tax Boy: ThisIsNotSubtle: Joe_diGriz: I'm still trying to figure out how the heck a "global blackout" would work... ESPECIALLY one that lasts for 15+ years. Every single power grid would have to be connected to every other one, so a major fault would have a chance of causing a chain reaction (but this was already shown to be possible to stop by having differently configured cutoffs, as seen in the NorthEast blackout of 2003). In addition, whatever happened would have to take out every single power plant, everywhere - coal, gas nuclear, hydro, solar, and wind. And that doesn't even cover the other logical problems with this premise.

This isn't poor science for a TV show concept, it's not even pure fantasy - it's like the plot of a "story" by some 4-year-old.

Apparently a magic amulet is involved.

I wish I was kidding.

So.... a wizard did it?

The only way to test these blade feet is to cut off Bolt's legs, give him the blade runner legs, and see if he beats his score.

To quote mrs. robertus: "Dear Announcers, If medals were awarded to the people we knew were the best, then there would be no point to having the actual Olympics competition. It would just be a bunch of medal ceremonies. This is why sports are interesting."

msupf: TheManofPA: Gosling: bextraordinary: This woman looks bloody ancient next to all the prepubescent girls. Mad props to her - still competitive at 37. Amazing.

And remember: these are the kinds of people NBC seems to love ignoring in favor of fluff pieces on more Americans. You got 203 other nations competing. Some of them have cool stories too.

Speaking of which, they aired the Blade Runner piece but I had to go upstairs. Did they air his semifinal heat?

No, they didn't air it, and it's not looking likely to get air time tonight. All they've done was mention he raced again today.

I think they'll do it after the mens 100 and womens 400 final well into the 11:00 hour. But you could be right.

NBC will probably have the next Olympics too... they should broadcast brazil live, that way people can go on whatever has replaced twitter and complain that they were at work and didn't get to see anything.
