It is day 7 of the Olympics and apart from seeing a couple of short clips on satellite news services, I have not seen a complete event yet. Although TVTL did have the opening ceremony, I have seen no more sign of action there and although TVRI (an Indonesian TV station) has the Indonesian TV rights, I have not cracked any Olympics coverage there when I have looked.
I guess it must be happening as other news reports say it is but they also talk of fake fireworks displays in the opening ceremony, fake singers and fake weather. I am starting to wonder if this whole thing is being faked in some studio in Shenzhen next-door to the fake NorthFace adventure gear factory.
It is more clear evidence of the whole world turning to fakedom. I am pretty sure that one day I will make a mistake and make an appointment with a spin doctor to syringe my ears. He will convince me that I actually will hear better with my ears blocked and will bill me anyway and suggest that I should return to hand in my reading glasses so I can see more clearly.
