Brazil: Olympics Made in China

Márcio Laurini [pt] explains why he is not following the Olympics: “There was lip-syncing in the Olympics opening ceremony, the fireworks were made by a computer, and sports are a dispute over the best doping. I'd rather read a book.”

    with all the cheating China is doing maybe they should wait for the Special Olympics so they can feel superior and dominant for once in their history…I bet they would cheat there too!
