    Olympics 2014!

    Starting in just over two weeks....

    We just hooked up our big 50+" rear-projection TV to an antenna and converter box we found in the shed out back. All set fo' free!

    Anyone else getting ready for the big games?
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    Kinda lost interest in that stuff some years back. But I might watch it a little more this time around to see the terrorist attacks live. Sad, so sad.

    I was working on the opening and closing ceremonies in Torino 2006 and security was super tight when we got within 2 weeks of the opening. It could take 45 mins to get into the stadium each time, so I figured out a great way to cut the lines and save time... I would take pizza boxes with me and they would invariably wave me thru so the pizza wouldn't get cold. Italians and their pizza!
    Hope Sochi haven't hired any Italian security dudes...
    It's all Here. Now.

    I have a feeling that the games will rather "explosive" this time around.

    Really enjoy the winter olympics. 2014 is being held in Sochi with the most active insurgents in the world. Bonus, it's also the 150th anniversary of the Muslims being eradicated from the region, and we all know how forgiving they are. With all of this, 30,000 troops are there to impose martial law, plus they've added this special security feature.

    Pretty sure the second photo is somewhere else - saw it yesterday and would have to search it out to say where though.

    Pretty sure it's one of the new-fangled gender-non-specific restrooms for CA elementary schools.

    I always knew the Norwegians can be a bit strange at times but what is going on here with the curling team? Is this part of a plan to distract the opposing team and gain an unfair advantage or do they moonlight as a barbershop quartet?

    Even our neighbors to the south are getting in on the Olympic spirit, sorta. Check out this uni. The slalom will never be the same.

    I hear the Russkis have built an unprecedented 3 uphill sections into the luge course.

    Looks like SOMEBODY learned something from the Canadians' Luge "Track of Death".
