FBD requested an Olympic thread. Since this is TBP, I can’t post a thread without making my own social commentary. When I was a child I loved watching the Olympics. But I’m not a child anymore. I’m reminded of a bible passage that reflects my current view of the Olympics:
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.” – 1 Corinthians 13:11
I now see the Olympics as nothing more than a corporate affair designed to keep the masses distracted. It is the ultimate circus. I did not watch the opening ceremonies. I was out drinking with Avalon at an outdoor bar listening to a decent band. Does anyone else see the ridiculousness and delusion of a broke country, currently in a deep recession, spending $42 million on a 3 hour opening ceremony for a sporting event? I’m just plain tired of the stupidity, willful ignorace, corruption, lies, and delusions that engulf this world.
So here is your Olympic thread FBD. Enjoy.
