The State of the World

While I haven't seen much of the Olympics [read: next to nothing], I did see a portion of the opening ceremonies featuring the cutest little girl I'd ever seen, in a red party dress with pigtailed hair, singing some song about the glory of the homeland or something. It was adorable.

Turns out it was faked. The child that actually sang the song was slightly less cute. Also, some fireworks were digitally inserted. Oh, China. They seem to be having a bugger of a time controlling every aspect of a production this large.

As well, Canada hasn't even scored a piddly bronze yet. Probably because Canadian Olympians have to recycle beer cans to finance their training, a reality Bob Duff discusses in today's Star.

In 1969 a 14-year-old kid snuck into John Lennon's Toronto hotel room with a reel-to-reel and interviewed him. It sounded like this.

Sprouting offspring =/= happiness.

A new breed of fetish porn is born: Contacts that make your eyes look all anime like.

Lifehacker gives us the app I've been waiting my life for: Freedom, which will disable your wireless and ethernet connections for up to six hours, so you can't get distracted when you're supposed to be working [currently Mac only].

And that's all the internet seems to have for me today. Bad internet, no biscuit!
