    In the past I have never really gotten into the Olympics. But I will watch the opening ceremonies and try and get a bit more into it this year.

    There's only one thing that would allow me to sit through this.
    IOC: Many Viewers May Be Using Olympics-Enhancing Drugs | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
    SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA–The International Olympic Committee announced Monday that it will launch a full-scale investigation in the wake of allegations of Olympics-enhancing drug use by viewers. "We have reason to suspect that as many as 18 million U.S. viewers are artificially increasing their ability to sit through the Sydney Games with illegal substances, particularly marijuana," IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch said. "These drugs enable viewers to watch NBC Olympic coverage beyond the limits of normal human endurance." Interest-boosting doping, Samaranch said, is particularly rampant among viewers of archery, men's handball, and women's sailing

    I can't believe those were people in those blocks... I was sure it was hydraulics controlled by computer.

    That is AMAZING!
