    This will prove to be an eye-opener.

    Yeah, they've been talking about the water quality a lot over the past few months, among many other things. I'm surprised it's gone as smoothly as it has the past few days.

    I watch the Summer Olympics, but don't care for it nearly as much as the Winter Olympics. Not only do the Winter Olympics have more extreme sports, but it also happens at a time of year when there's not much else to do but stay inside and watch tv.

    I don't know,,, maybe it's just me,, but swimming in raw sewage somehow seems like a more "extreme" sport than bob sledding. :sick:

    Yes they seemed to be diving into a luminous algae rich pond tonight! Think their UV bulb needs checking and replacing! What's going on in there I wonder?

    Another medal gained, woo-hoo! The gold medal kayaker is another one from my local area along with Adam Peaty. 12 tons water per second flows along the canoe /kayak course I've just heard....makes me wonder what kind of pump they use! Judging by its opaque blue colour it's very oxygen rich with all that turbulence going on, no chance for the algae to bloom there. Come on GB!

    The Egyptian dude refused to shake hands with his Israeli competitor. Nice.

    How come professional basketball players, professional golfers and professional hockey players are allowed in the Olympics?

    I thought it was just for amateur sport.

    The olympics are fixed.
    I was watching the boxing match yesterday while sitting in the doctors office and the judges "unanimously " agreed that the Russian fighter won. There's no way. It makes me think Sepp Blatter is running the show!
    Right after that I was called in to see the doctor for my appointment regarding high blood pressure problems, lol.

    Today the French medal winner was "booed".

    Tough crowd, maybe they got mugged or didn't get the bottled water.
