    In retrospect, we probably shouldn't have gone with the genre where everyone except the main characters are comprehensively oppressed corpo-serfs.

    Nah most people just didn’t notice it happening, even the people making it happen. By the time people figured out it had happened it was kinda too late to course correct it.

    To pull it back into the Olympics I’d actually love to go back to the Olympics presentations before 2012 because I have a theory that about then is when the coverage really changed over to the hunger games style coverage we have now (mostly cause that’s when the first movie dropped and everyone in television production took the worst possible lessons from it)

    In the ski big air finals at the Olympics, the winner had one last "victory lap" jump with the victory already secured. He did a trick holding his country's (Norway's) flag.

    Every single judge scored him 69 on the jump.

    I'm soooo surprised that the country that has been caught running sophisticated doping schemes for the last several Olympics has once again been caught doping, and that allowing them to compete while pretending there's a distinction between "Russia" and "Russian Olympic Committee" has bitten the IOC in the ass yet again.

    What I meant earlier when I said "ban bolero" was

    "how about more than one person does a version of bolero because I JUST LOVE BOLERO"

    How did he still slow down and stop safely I would have just collapsed to the ground in a puff of dust.

    Or maybe I would have just ascended to a higher plane of existence and or shuffled off this mortal coil.

    The constant refrain of "They're aiming for a multiple on this end" or "they're looking for a steal", I know you need someone for the analyst to play off of but if this is the quality of your play by play talent NBC maybe just don't.

    I'm imagining John Madden's voice. "If the...if the skip can get the stone closer to the ah...ah center of the house, then they'll be closer than the other team and that's gonna...that's gonna...that's gonna be a point."

    Shoot accurately when you're breathing heavily.

    One of my classmates at uni was a semi-pro biathlonist. He always claimed that that was the one sport in the world that was doping-proof, since the drugs that would make you better at the skiing would make you worse at shooting and vice versa.

    At least half of the German golds are some kind of sledding I think. Because of course the Germans win in in the sport where they can use what's basically a car.

    edit: actually 4 gold in sledding and 3 in skeleton... And on course in bobsleighing today

    Wouldn't blood doping help a lot though? Just by making the breathing more efficient and easier for both parts?

    As a general rule I just assume that at Olympic level things are rife with doping. We keep catching it, for one. And in cases like this year where "oh noes the Russians are the baddies"....and all these other countries stayed competitive vs Russian doping without doping? Must be some real good clean living and vitamins regimins going on.

    Russia doubled their medal count from the Olympics before so people didn't really keep up.

    I am very very pleased that sweden is at 7th now

    I don't really have any personal investment in beating any nation specifically in totals - it's all in good fun, just doing some winter sports


    except Sweden. It is vitally important that we demolish sweden at winter sports.
