  3. It all depends on whether the smog is so thick that we can't see it at all.

    Even though it's at 7:30pm in Perth it will be terribly boring me thinks, I'll see what else is on.
     
  5. Manly play the Storm tonight grand final rematch and the Dragons and Sharks I think I'll have to pass on the ceremony as well.

    Maybe. Are the USA still planning on walking out with masks? If they are I'm definitely watching because I have a suspicion that if they do it'll be like Cartman's party on South Park when he get's Ant's in Your Pants for his birthday and he flips the party off switch; the screen will just go black. And I also have a suspicion that if individuals walk out with masks on, they'll just randomly disappear during the ceremony.
     
  7. I normally can't be bothered with stuff like this but it is most impressive, I have to say.

    GF watching it right now....f***ing boring I tell you. Plus China has made it some kind of: China Historic Show. The Olympics are not ABOUT China, they are just IN China. :wall:

    It's China down to a tea though. All smiles on the outside, shear turmoil on the inside.

    At least London will offer a good human rights record. <_<

    I feel ya dog, makes me sick to the stomach considering how many people were made homeless just so the communist ***** can produce an image of China that is 100% fake. :vomit:

    I love the olympics but having them in China just kills the spirit. :angry:

    Damn... that Ukrainean team sure had some lookers B)

    well that's if they keep the games, they'll certainly be hoping to avoid a repeat of the fiasco in 2005.

    That was like nothing of this world. Simply an amazing opening ceremony. How can it be topped? Good luck London...

    Sorry but I thought it was crap. First of all, the opening ceremony is NOT supposed to be a promotional show about China.

    i know stupid idiots, canada, toronto should of won the bid. Chinas pollution is well above the "saftey guideline" for the athletics and they still won bid :(.

    I did like the drumming and the fireworks though.

    I thought the human keyboard was pretty impressive and it was a novel way to light the flame as well.
