I did some googling and discovered that he dominates his event, which is just so awe-inspiring.

That link doesn't work for me. Are Olympic videos still not up on YouTube? I hate these stupid copyright restrictions crap, especially when the official channel can't get it right. They put up 3 hours' worth of footage per video which is ridiculous - takes forever to load and I don't wanna have to scroll past other things to watch a 2-minute event.
Well, I am sure you have enough dough stashed away under your bed- that will come in handy now But, on a serious note, it's a very good decision-you'll have a lot of fun and learn a lot

Yeah, the copyright restrictions on the Olympics events make me too. What was the official channel showing all the events in Singapore ? (in the US, it's NBC which controls all the rights- and nothing seems to be available on youtube).

Was wondering where you were hiding out Nodz. Lochte was getting hyped up alot around here, that was a pretty surprising result. My favourite moment is probably obvious.. other than that, I'd probably go for Chris Hoy's cycling dominance - doubt anyone outside of Britain gives a toss, but still.
Hola Shamster. Have been a bit busy in RL with my parents visiting me. Did not get to watch too many of the cycling events since the the US does not fare too well in those. I did get to see some sprint and BMX events- pretty exciting stuff.

On the topic of philosophy, given that the current (R) candidates here seem to be heavily influenced by Randian philosophy- here is a snippet of an interview with her in 1959. Very fascinating- though I find the tenets of her philosophy quite appalling (there is some truth to some aspects of it though).

We have those things here too. They're called Value shops or whatever...or like, $2 shop. Obviously I don't go to those places.

Can get those in poundstores, especially poundland (+1 for making myself sound extremely cheap), or for better quality look up a shop called Wilkinsons. They also sell lawnmowers.. never know when you get the itch to bankrupt yourself to mow the carpet in your new apartment
Your being 'extremely cheap' is very helpful to me. Yes, I will buy myself a lawnmower when I wake up with the urge to mow the carpet in my apartment, which is totally normal.

A good, expensive decision. Have you been to London before?

The free-to-air channels were the local channels, but I watched the cable channels which was ESPN. I heard a lot of bad things about NBC's coverage. Like showing events on tape delay and things like that.

I refuse to read her novels. I can't remember why. I think it was because my Literature teacher whom I greatly respected called her didactic and overly cerebral. What aspects of her philosophy did you find appalling? I'm too lazy to watch the video.

I'm watching TDKR for the 4th time tomorrow and 2nd time on IMAX.

I agree.





I laughed out loud at this. Literally. In the middle of lunch.



How was your party?
