pseudo-ink blot

I failed to finish the longish post i was working on last night, and i'm sleep-depped and silly, so this is what i came up with instead :)

Remember! Finish your own work before checking your neighbors' answers! ;)

Poll #1245182 You've just found fifteen birds

Where are they?

What is unusual about these birds?

What shall you do if you catch them?

What is the most likely reason that they will remain uncaught?

More Olympics frustration

*grrrrr* If they were _actually_ showing the Olympics live i could be watching women's beach volleyball right now (and could have been watching the stuff i'm watching now about the point i got home.) Instead it's going to be on after i _ought_ to be going to bed =P

Also the "what we're going to show tonight" bit at the start mentioned the volleyball at 11, but _didn't_ mention the gymnastics exhibition which the website claims is supposed to be on between 8 and 9. Well, it's 8:39, and haven't seen anything about it yet... *hopes* (Although how can they cover that much of it just the 20 minutes left even if they started now?) I know that they've made a big deal about their online stuff, but this year just doesn't seem to have as much TV coverage of the interesting stuff as i remember from earlier Olympics. Maybe that's just because the ones i remember most are from when i was younger and had the summers off so i could sit around all day watching Olympics instead of going into work.

You know, NBC has three main channels (NBC, CNBC, MSNBC) two of which are showing _nothing_ currently, and one of which will be coming on with Olympic _walking_ soon =P One of those could be showing the _actual_ live feed and one could be showing the live rebroadcast.

Also, looking at the medal results for the US and China, if i were tempted to try and analyze a strategy used for selecting athletes i might guess that China sent an elite bunch of superstars while the US threw everything it had at the wall to see what would stick, but as the host country isn't it China that's sending everyone they can? Of course there have also been some allegations about China not exactly playing fairly... =P

New Heroes commercial

You know, i like Heroes (well, at least the first season anyways, the second "season" is debatable) but even i know that if you get "6000 fans and critics" together to show a sneak preview of the new season to you're going to get a room full of cheering and screaming no matter what, unless you're doing it HORRIBLY wrong. I mean, AX got together 3000 Transformers fans for a sneak preview of that movie, and i will simultaneously admit to thinking the movie was sub-par _and_ being a cheering and screaming fan at the showing itself. Getting a dedicated group of fans excited at a sneak preview is a low bar requirement, it's not an endorsement.

    cranky critical

(no subject)

I'm pretty sure i've only had this bread about 10 days, how can it be getting moldy already?!? I paid good money for these artificial preservatives! ;)

(You know, i'm kinda scared about what would happen if i signed up for Twitter, at least if i had some way to post to it on a regular basis =)
