i've realized that i've become superstitious about my BMs.

 

if i lay down a solid, clean coiler i'll think to myself "an auspicious sign. today augurs to be a good day"

I do believe it is. I don't think it has anything to do with food though.

I ran into my lesbian barista crush last night on the street. I told her that I missed her this weekend. As it turns out she got a new job at a restaurant on the weekends so I might not see her much anymore. I am saddened to not look past those razor-sharp bangs into those deep blue eyes and say, "a coffee to stay, please."

People are always be hell of complain about how the Limpics have too much commentary about the athletes' stories of trial and tribeelation make it like reality tv rather than focus on the sport. But here's the thing though how many people give a crud about pole vault or floor routine or whatnot on their own terms? It's like professional wrestling the actual act of wrestling is not sufficient to draw dat viewers got to embed in story form.

I don't know. I think GF would be interested in Pole Vaulting without any prodding. Might want you to prod him anyway though.

It's true though. Who cares about which middle school these rowers went to? I barely care that rowing is an Olympic sport!

Any subjectively scored event, such as floor exercise, shouldn't be in the Olympics.

Eh...gymnastics and figure skating are such mainstays of olympic competition and judging has come a long way.

Things like building up a difficulty score and then taking deductions from it is pretty effective, and it would be a shame to completely eliminate such crowd pleasers over judging issues (which on many levels are only a problem for audiences that only watch the event every 4 years...the participants are quite used to the pitfalls of judging by the time they reach the olympics).

Some sports that have a less defined judging path and history start to get weird though. I mostly get moguls skiing...you are scored primarily based on your time, but there are points for your form (partially almost a safety thing, forcing you to ski in control rather than let it loose for a better time) and points for your 2 jumps. But the 2 jumps are based on defined difficulty and pretty clear metrics.

But then look at something like slopestyle snowboarding/skiing where you get literal"style" points and have so many choices (and opportunities to invent new tricks) that degree of difficulty + deductions is no longer a clearly defined process....starts to get weird, but I'm still not entirely sure it should disqualify a sport from the olympics.

I also think that the notion that it's as simple as dividing it into subjectively and objectively scored events is erroneous.
The '72 men's basketball finals come to mind. Or Evander Holyfield getting DQ'd in whatever year he fought. (Yes, scoring in boxing is "subjective", but that wasn't how the disputed result came about in that match.) Sprinters and swimmers can be DQ'd for a false start or a lane violation.

And then there's soccer, Olympic and otherwise . . .

Besides, you always need a few controversies to keep it interesting.

I really cannot understand the fascination with sports.

I would argue that is pretty objective.  Start moving before the starting gun, that's against the rules of a race.  Dive into your enemy's lane and drown him before finishing the race, also against the rules.

Neither do the rest of us, for the most part. We just fake it to offset tje assumptions people might make if they see us drinking dat homo milk.
