    haha, yeah I figured the reason was a little more looks-related than her age; that photo could be from any hentai flick you care to name.

    Not that I've seen any.

    Not like the Chinese heirarchy to be so cognisant of public perception, though; usually they would have just told the world to get over it. Truth is, they're no different to everyone else, just more public about it.

    Honestly, thought I wouldn't bother with these games at all, not for political reasons, but just because I didn't care. However, have now watched more of these Olympics than any other, besides maybe Atlanta when I was away 'sick' from school for two weeks. Have really gotten into it even though Australia have done worse then the previous couple of games, gold medal wise.

    Haven't seen much live due to work but have followed most things really closely through the BBC live commentary and watched highlights-a-plenty at home.

    Nothing will ever come close to 96 for me though, summer holidays, staying up all through the night.

    Worst night of my life when Edwards got silver and Christie DQd on the same night
