    In one loony bin, here they are: The best GIFs from the Olympics

    America-centric, of course. Takes forever to load them all.

    Not to worry. They all seemed to get up and continue the race... once they all managed to find their bikes...
    I remember one brutal crash in particular....I think it was one of the American chick's who smacked her skull dead on the pavement. Either way, it's fucked up how one person's crash can ruin your chances of winning.

    Yeah, I saw that - it was nasty. I felt worse and worse about the crashes as it went on. They seemed to happen so easily and was so luck based, that I felt really bad for the riders.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Q: I just finished the ESPN article on the sexfest that is Olympic Village. My thought is why are the organizers providing condoms? Aren't these the people we need reproducing? Isn't the world going to be better off generations from now with a human race made from Michael Phelps knocking up Hope Solo and the like? Considering the rate dumb rednecks or crackheads are popping out kids, the Olympic committee should be discouraging condoms, right? Not only can we begin a race of super humans, it's clearly going to bridge cultural gaps and fostering unity across the globe. We can singly end war as we know it with one mixed US/Chinese gymnast or Israeli/Iranian boxer. Plus this super race of humans will be better suited to defend earth from the inevitable alien invasion that would otherwise wipe out lazy slobs like the rest of us.

    Each olympics has its controversies but it seems like this one had more than usual. Maybe I'm just following them more closely this time.

    A little late to rejoin this party but... more info about Kenya's (relative) non-performance at the Olympics.

    Apparently, our Athletics Federation and Ministry of Sports weren't as supportive of the athletes' needs as they should have been and reports have come out that superior athletes were actually overlooked during the selection process due to internal politics blah blah.

    The average Kenyan is furious. Heads are going to roll.

    Though Rudisha's win was pretty sweet.
