    Well, it beats brown rice and vegetables, I'm sure.

    I was thinking of Werther's Original.

    I. Ladies:

    Gold - Asada
    Silver - Wagner
    Bronze - don't care

    II. Men:

    Gold: Chan
    Silver: Machida
    Bronze: Oda

    Or are you asking which order of placements I prefer? :saint: In that case, the first of those by far.

    Which team would you most like to see win the bronze in pairs at Sochi?

    Pang/Tong
    Duhamel/Radford
    Moore-Towers/Moscovitch
    Kavaguti/Smirnov
    Bazarova/Larionov
    Berton/Hotarek
    Denney/Coughlin
    Sui/Han
    Peng/Zhang
    Savchenko/Szolkowy
    Volosozhar/Trankov :)eek:)

    You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself. :mad:

    Sadly, I think life after death is unlikely. But who knows?

    Portrayals of Pre-Raphaelite ladies with long golden tresses:

    Beautiful and sorrowful
    Sad, pretty pictures, but rather forgettable
    Too sentimentalised to be either very beautiful or very sad

    My choices were informed largely by my disappointment for each skater so far this season.

    As for the Wiki vandalism, I like the account of the first-ever skating competition.
