Sorry, but I mean it. What are the olympics meant to represent? How are the teams formed? They are worse than Aussie Rules teams now, which similar to the nations of old often used to roughly represent people of a specific geography and perhaps even gene pool (probably not, but if you half closed your eyes you could fudge it). But even aside from this, who gives a complete flying fuck about these further-stronger-faster-tuffer idiots destroying their lives dedicating them to the eXtreme boredom of regular repetitive exercise so as to one day compete. What do these people get out of these pursuits? Do they come away feeling better than others? If so, more fool them. And worst of all the people who watch this rubbish (let's not even start on the fools who have 'lost' tens of thousands on internet 'scams' about tickets to these fool events; I wonder if any of them might learn from such an experience? of course not) on television and somehow find some kind of interest-traction in amongst the stats and grabs.
It's certainly not my world and never has been and of course never will be. A few days ago on 774 I heard some smoothie discussing the superior physical condition of particular runners (nb it seems even ridiculous to me that there can be a person who can be described as a 'runner'; you might as well describe someone with hair as a 'hairer') as being something that, unfortunately, not anyone can be. Poor sods! I always associate the olympics with fascism (why is that?) and I do note that every four years around Olympics time the sports fascists do get their little bit of time in the sun to gloat about how clever they are for their interest in Olympicish things. These people are shallow, mean, stupid and useless.
People who do art things can find a way round anything. Olympics people are the most pathetic, misguided, shabby wastes available. I hate them. Did you guess?
