    Picking up from the last thread.

    If you had the means to go to the Sochi Olympics, then would you go?

    Yay, why not :drama:
    Nay, don't want to validate something being held to glorify a bigoted regime stuck in the Stone Age :EVILLE:

    2002 because of the judging scandal and the double gold in pairs. I am actually the only person on earth who believes B&S deserves to be sole gold medal winner, if only because S&P used the same LP for 3 straight seasons. :slinkaway There was just one too many gold medals that year for my liking. The IOC should have just picked a winner and not chickened out. LOL

    You are not alone, even in your beleaguered city.

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    Do you wish there had been a team event in figure skating at previous Olympic Games?

    eys
    non, though I'm glad there will be one in Sochi (or, at least, I'm willing to give it a chance)
    non, and I don't like the idea that there's going to be one now
    purple take it to the Trash Can, f_d :p

    Why was Rach2 called Orchid?

    ETA: If anyone has any spare rep, no matter how lowly ;), please put me and Ms. Dance out of our misery. We're both stuck on ??99. Thanks a million - won't forget it. :D ;) :rolleyes:

    Because she wore that color and they have that one lift at the end (?)

    Stoopid Canadian chick with her:
    sweat stains
    open legs in the kiss and cry
    OR
    pouty face after her scores came up?

    Orchids come in all colours.

    Pouting can be very alluring. Think Irina Movchan.

    Certainly not.

    The movements were trying to capture the wonder of said flora's sexual organs rocking majestically against the wind. I believe.

    Sorry Madam! But I choose to reserve my rep for only masterful works of commentary on our dear web board. Well, that, potty humor, and Lysacek bashing. :psoty:

    Who do you prefer to win Sochi 2014?
    Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir or
    Meryl Davis/Charlie White

    Rodriguez. Barely.

    Worst people on the freeway?

    Drivers who are driving too slow for the (usually left) lane they're in
    Drivers who don't have their lights on when it's dark, no matter how many people "flash" them to give them a sign
    Drivers who don't have their lights on when the weather's bad, even though they have their wipers on
    Drivers in minivans
    Drivers in Subarus
    Drivers in big honkin' Cadillacs
    Drivers going extra slow because they're towing big, heavy trailers or RVs
    Drivers from out of state, with no clue where they're going
    Drivers with the blinkers on, nonstop
    Drivers who can't drive straight because you can see they're on the phone or texting, because their phones are that bright and you can see the glow from behind
    All of the above, especially as they aren't necessarily mutually exclusive :EVILLE:

    Don't you drive a minivan? :confused:

    The worst thing I've seen is on Texas freeways where actual people sit on the beds of trucks. :yikes: The second worst is when people haphazardly string an unsafe amount of furniture onto their vehicles. I once ran over a mattress on I-45. :mad:

    NON! It's an SUV, silly, and it's quite fuel efficient as far as SUVs go, and furthermore, I always drive at a constant speed, under the radar, and never in everybody's way. Don't you drive a beat-up, slow-a** Subaru? :p


    Boobleva, just for the cheap laughs with her name. You missed the best wardrobe malfunction of all, Polish ice dancer Sylwia Nowak from the 1997 or 1998 era, where her entire boob flopped out while she was in an arms-over-head "come everyone look at this" pose, complete with sh*t-eating open-mouthed grin exposing her misaligned teeth. You also missed Melissa Gregory's infamous 2003 or 2004 malfunction which was broadcast on ABC unedited despite it not being live.

    Yes, and the mileage is still good, although not as good as when the car was new.

    Boobleva, as already stated. :p
