You are an individual brainwashed by a chinese pussy and you can't be trusted.

Hi Eric

If I type Tiannenmen square+massacre into Google, I get 155,000 hits in 0.15 seconds.

What happens when you do that?

Had to leave about an hour in, so I'm not sure what I missed, but the bit with the boxes, and that monstrous LED panel rolling out. Amazingly well done. The bar has been raised. Makes you feel amazingly proud just to be a human being.

I heard it was a $300 million production; 10x the cost of the show Athens put on.

Yao Ming is leading the Chinese athletes around the entire track. At 7'6" he exemplifies the scope of this opening ceremony. They say China will take the most medals, beating the US and all other countries.

Well like/hate the Chinese is your individual right so i am not going to argue with anyone on this.

For me China is a double sided sword and i always keep this in mind. But all my years here have been good and China is getting better all the time. They have a long way to go yet, i will admit.

Back to the Olympic opening and this has got to be the most stunning performance i have ever had the pleasure to watch.

ERIC.
