Olympics dont affect me at all, and theyre boring as heck to watch anyway, so I dont like them. And I dont like them again cause they take up the time on the news channels (its all we have over here in Lanzarote) from what could be much better news.

The Olympics are alright. I just feel like they are over-commercialized and they are maybe starting to get a little bit old.

I find it interesting that a lot of the Athens olympics stuff looked a lot like the Sydney olympics, eg. the torch looked the same except it wasn't bent.

Once again, little changes, gets old fast. Kinda sad because the Olympics is a great event.

IMHO the Olympics are stupid. Maybe that's because I suck at sports? It makes the news on the radio take longer so I don't get to listen to as much music on the way to work. It clogs up half the TV channels, but it's the half I don't watch anyways because they don't have anything good on. So yeah it could be worse. But getting back to my main point as to why it's stupid, wow you're good at <insert name of sport here>, but what good is that to you in real life? I have no use for being able to jump over poles without touching them or throwing a metal sphere, I don't solve for X on a daily basis, and I don't care when Napolean was born. None of that is useful unless you're going up against that nerd on Jeopardy. I'll stick to useful things like coding PHP and knowing everything I can about Star Trek (yes those things are useful).

Yes. That guy is crazy. As was said on VH1's Best Week Ever, the only category that guy would have difficulty with is "How to pick up a girl."
