wow, what a dramatic and visually stunning opening ceremony!

it must've been a breathtaking experience to actually be there in the bird's nest stadium... i get goosebumps just watching it on TV.

way to go CHINA!

on the other hand, the $40 billion dollars it cost to host the 29th olympiad would feed, clothe and house many millions of people, fund a lot of medical research, and so on...

and shame on russia for launching a vicious military attack on georgia's independence, on the same day, insulting the very spirit of the olympics games. the cameras showed Putin sitting in the VIP area of the stadium... what a creep.
