Best line of the Olympics


Simon Barnes of the London Times on men's synchronized pairs diving:

It all looks like a wonderfully elegant gay suicide pact.

LMAO! The Olympics are so full of stupid non-sports.

Incidentally, dog showing is another competition being ruined by gay men and their female friends. Dogs are being bred for the aesthetics of the show ring, with no thought to the personality and intelligence traits needed for the breeds' specialized tasks. I read a quote from a K-9 officer the other day that they go to European breeders for their dogs.

And while I'm on this free associative rant, women's athletics appear to have come full circle: women athletes must literally give up part of their womanhood in order to compete. They have body fat levels at 2% and lower, they have no breasts, they do not menstruate, and chances are they will never be able to have children. Ain't equality great?

It was this pair who led me to speculate on the coming Chinese cloning of human divers.

BTW I'm tired of commentators attributing Phelp's success to his size 14 feet.

I wear size 15 myself so am I suppose to to be faster yet?

There are some disadvantages to having manly feet. Last year in Berkeley a semi-somnolent hippie woke up as I walked bay, pointed at me and screamed "You have big feet". And in high school my nickname was Yeti.

Anon mentioned dog showing. The BBC has just shown a devastating documentary on the dog show world's breeding practices that is causing it (the BBC) to review its coverage of Cruft's, the world's largest dog show.

BBC ready to dock Crufts coverage after ‘Nazi-style’ breeding
(...)
Steve Jones, Professor of Genetics at University College London, told the BBC: “People are carrying out breeding which would be first of all entirely illegal in humans and secondly is absolutely insane from the point of view of the health of the animals. In some breeds they are paying a terrible, terrible price in genetic disease.”

Its about time someone in the MSM took seriously this form of organized animal cruelty.

icr,

Thanks for the link; it addresses the problem succinctly. Dog shows are freakish beauty pageants by people (gays and women) obsessed with aesthetics. German Shepherd gaits are being ruined just to give us those sloped backs that are apparently all the rage now. Form over function rather than form following function.

I'm in over my head at this point, but it also appears that the breeders are obsessed with line breeding and refuse to do sound crosses with different lines. As I recall, the kennel clubs also follow the philistine practice of refusing to recognize offspring sired thru artificial insemination.

The event I'm waiting for is the mixed synchronized hammer throw.

After that, without any fuss, the stars overhead will begin to go out.
