Out of the Blue

The opening ceremony for the Olympics is tonight. I'm sure I've ranted before about how silly I find this periodic obsession with sports no one follows played by athletes no one knows, so I'll just let it go. Well, you know, not counting the rant I just came out with, which the judges scored a 9.4.

Not to mention the costs and security for these things is way out of control. It seems that more people than not in the hosts cities for these things do not want them there. All this corruption and waste centered around games for what really amount to a hobby is ridiculous. Particularly these days when so many struggle to make ends meet.

Personally, I think the money would be much better spent if used in the space program.
