My Olympic Post

Oh wow, there's Olympics this year? And it's in Vancouver? Like, that's in Canada, eh? Since its Winter, it must be the Winter Olympics, right?

Seriously, I can't remember the last time when I paid any attention to the Olympics but the tragic death of the Georgian luger during training caught my attention. He was estimated to be doing 140 km/h when he left the track. That's bloody fast for what is basically an unprotected human missile with almost no control, sliding down a twisty sheet of ice. This guys are seriously brave.
