Summer Olympics '08

America seems to be doing pretty well. I really like the opening ceremony, well the parts I saw anyways. I got bored watching the flags being carried out when they were introducing the countries.

I got someone to record the opening from TV, but the tape ran out before the torch was lit :p
But the first half an hour featured fireworks like I've never seen before, part of the fireworks were timed to display footprints walking over the city.
At one point masses of performers ran around with lights on their suits and it looked like coordinated masses of glowing stick figures. Maybe like a stylized HDR stick figure game :D
But I'm never interested in TV sports though, to be honest. Somehow I can't relate to the competitors on TV, even if I like some sports in reality.
I feel like that too, just all the people in one place reduces the distance that other times causes cold-hearted and sometimes fatal political decisions.

I am from Hong Kong and i must admit that China did a really great job in the Olympics
China can get along with the countries
who say she can't? it is just the television that made China look bad in the news.
In real life China is a very peace loving and great country.
Don't trust all things you see from the tv
Add oil beijing and other countries
May this peace continues
