some choice comments at Gizmodo‘s take on the olympics:
I’ve yet to decide if I’m skipping the olympics this year or not.

On the other hand I do like swimming.
I agree, i’ll most likely skip the Olympics because of china’s oppression to basic human rights. ALthough, i’ll tivo the USA basketball games and boy do i wish the US win the gold medal count!
Those pictures look amazing. I wish i could have seen the opening ceremony… except for the whole being in China part of it.
and the best of them all :
I see where all the money we owe them is going.
BTW. for great olympic opening photos: the big picture
