The good news: Blind man's buff is a new Olympic discipline. - Bad news: No mixed teams.

Anyone look close at the cob-job they've built? looks like a job for the 3 stooges.

I remember Hong Kong being like that as well at certain times as the weather changed, but never quite that bad.

From this (somewhat) brighter image, I would say these are guys are gov't workers. Almost everybody is doing NOTHING. Hands in pockets, sitting down. Sheesh, reminds me of highway workers here.

Not 'shopped. A friend brought home some pics from a vacation, where the visibility was even worse.

I'm worried for the athletes. They're supposed to be in peak condition, breathing this?? Some of them are asthmatic too.

I read recently that the planning for the games allows for some events such as the marathon to be postponed or even canceled if the air pollution is too bad that day.

Check out the foreman in the red hard-hat. Observing, as usual. What ever happened to leading by doing?

the women's world cup competition was in china a few months back. they used fields that are to be used for the olympics. the fields were in crappy condition. i mean really bad. the players also said that the air quality did effect their stamina. china is not ready for the olympics yet, and i am skeptical that a few more months will make it any better.

Since of course we didn't stop from their poisoning our dogs and cats with melamine, putting lead and date rape drugs in our kid's toys (coma, kid?) and antifreeze in our toothpaste and cough syrup. I mean we must have some limits... Maybe it is pollution.

all those things were reported on the evening news by "journalists". we don't trust them. we listen, but we don't trust them.
