The biathlon is neat. Skiing and shooting.  Think about it, bloods pounding pulse racing from the skiing and then you have to concentrate on those five shots.  Time added if you miss.  Must be tough.  I enjoy watching it since I saw the Bond flick "For your eyes only".  unfortunately missed it this year on the olympics, think it was held in some of the earlier days of this olympics.
Honor is what you know of yourself. Reputation is what others think they know about you. Live by honor and let your reputation lie where it may. And outlive the bastards.

One day I will rule the world with my army of a mole of moles!

Not really-if you miss one target you have to make 150 metres more- if you miss 2 targets 300 metres and so on

Do you watch the Olympic games?
I personally love to watch the Olympics. Especially skiing and ski jump.

What do you guys think? :)
Dude, we must be relatives.

I was kinda disappointed by the austrians recently: Benny Raich falls, Deneriaz humiliates Michael Walchhofer ... at least the women were successful in the downhil race.

Something hilarious: the british moderator cubicle is right next to the american one. Everytime an american starts for a race, you can here them shouting "GOOO BODEEEEEE!!!!!" (even through the walls) ^^

By the way, for those who have seen the race, did you see Bode Miller? He's a cheater!
Plus a damn good actor. Clever bastard. But the real hero of the day was Ted Ligety - amazing performance for a newcomer.

Well, Deneriaz was really FANTASTIC! -0.70 sec From Walchofer, that's pretty much!
Raich, Raich....that's not the first time that this happens. But in fact you are really nervous in such situations (I have my own experience... :) )

He's clever, I have to admit it. But in fact it was very difficult to notice that the error.
Ted made a very good race, really very good.

Italy won a SUPER gold medal in ice skating just some minutes ago! Really cool performance!

Sports Illustrated predicted Italy will win, in the end, only two gold: we must (and can) prove them wrong!

So far Polish team didn't won anything. Best place was 6th in women biathlon, today shifted to 5th after Pylieva tested positive.

Not that I expected anything, perhaps by sheer luck they can score somewhere.

only two gold
Cheer up  :D I think that we will win another gold (I count on Giorgio Rocca).
I hope that he does well in Slalom..

I hope not  ;) ;D - his style is very impressive, though. You rarely see racers taking the poles with hardly any torso movement.
Unfortunately, he didn't break the Tomba record of 7 slalom wins in one go.

Today Raich won the giant slalom! Really cool performance! 5th gold medal for Austria! (Our chemistry teacher told us that he won during the organic chemistry lesson....)
Unfortunately, I won't have much time to watch the olympics now, since school started again today after the break.:cry:

Sorry that I have to correct you, but we've got 7 gold medals so far (3 within the last 2 days). :D

Does anyone know where to find statistics on the Olympics for this year?

It can happen, an Australian won a gold medal in the ice skating at Salt Lake City, Steven Bradbury LOL :D

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
