Couples Parents Putting On A Brave Face And Pretending You're a "Gift From God" For The Next 37 Years


<tieboy> you know, i'm sure there's more too it than it looks, but i swear, if you gave me a week, i could be an olympic ski-jumper
<mdxi> tieboy: the hard part is the "not dying" bit
<raven> mdxi : But you could snap your leg and become the new "agony of defeat" guy.
<spinn> yeah, I suppose by the time you get to that level and distance, you've weeded out all the poeple who don't make it look easy
<spinn> seems like it would mostly be about going through enough leg work to be able to hold your skis in the right position
<tieboy> i guess they have some combo event which has jumping plus cross-country skiing
<spinn> nordic combined
<spinn> probably started as an argument between a ski jumper and a cross country skiier 60 years ago
<tieboy> you didn't have a lot of style in your jump, so we'll deduct a minute from your cross country time
<spinn> yeah, I should've watched that
<spinn> because really doesn't a 48 second lead seem like, okay you've won
<spinn> but I guess there really is a lot of variance in cross country skiing ability
<MisterQ> heh, catch fire
<MisterQ> The new ski-jump + nitro carry 500
<spinn> actually "the nitro carry 500" is a pretty amusing enough sounding competition in itself
<raven> A lot of nervous, sweating people shuffling as fast as they can.
<spinn> yeah, but with a lot of screaming people right at the sidelines
<MisterQ> "Oh no.. the competitor from Kenya tripped.. Oh my! They'll be cleaning him up from the track for weeks!"
<MisterQ> "And now they're at the banana peel and loose marbles portion of the track"
<mdxi> it used to take a long time to judge, but now, thanks to IBM's laser volumetric system, the craters can be instantly measured
<wabewalkr> Good ol' Deep Blue.
<tieboy> it's interesting how much coverage the really horrible athletes get
<tieboy> like the swimmer who almost sank that last time
<wabewalkr> I think it's the influence of "The Weakest Link."
<wabewalkr> "Let's mock the losers!"
<tieboy> maybe i should join for taikwondo, get kicked in the head, hit the mat, and retire famous
<MisterQ> tie, or at least your severed head will
<MisterQ> There should be a new medal for worst athlete
<hiway> ... and it should be made of chocolate.
<wabewalkr> Isn't that reserved for the special olympics?
<mdxi> the 200M drool
<MisterQ> "No Billy! Bad Billy! Don't eat the medal. Sigh.. at least take off the wrapper"
<wabewalkr> Freeform twitch.
<hiway> no wrapper. just chocolate.
<hiway> And the recipient would sob as their medal slowly melted.
<mdxi> mixed doubles staring at the wall
<MisterQ> The wheelchair jump 200
<mdxi> 10m platform belly flop
<tieboy> cross-country getting lost and dying of frostbite
<spinn> damn
<spinn> I watched o brother where art thou yesterday, and I have that soggy bottom boys song stuck in my head
<raven> 'Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii am a maaaaaaaaann....'
<tieboy> Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii am a maaaaaaaa-aaaaan of constant sorroooooooooow
* mdxi yanks down his beard and waggles his eyebrows
<spinn> oh good, now it's on both sides of my skull
<raven> thanks for sharing, greg
<spinn> thankee
<wabewalkr> At least you saw something decent.
<mdxi> what were some good 80s/90s slow-dance songs?
* raven needs to get that DVD.
<MisterQ> the 500m rorschach test
<wabewalkr> We were screaming, "Die, die you stupid fucks!" throughout our movie.
<tieboy> lady in red?
<MisterQ> Wizard of Oz?
<wabewalkr> "Jeepers Creepers."
<wabewalkr> Worst thing is, they're attempting a sequel.
<tieboy> ahem: cross-country getting lost and dying of frostbite
<spinn> what?
<raven> they're Elking

<maime> um. okay, whatever.
<mdxi> their manufacture and sale in the US has been banned because children shouldn't be playing with heavy, pointed projectiles
<Leth> I hate it when that happens
<mdxi> thus the humor. or not.
<spinn> once I was crossing the street, but I misjudged the height of the curb at the other sidewalk, so I tripped
<spinn> but I wasn't able to swing my foot around to catch myself in time, so I wound up falling sideways
<spinn> but I wound up rolling into the fall rather than just falling flat on my face
<spinn> so I was happy that I apparently have the instinct to fall properly, without causing all sorts of damage on myself
<tieboy> Equestrian Waving At The Horsies
