Time to start training for the 10,000 meter walk!

I thought about it, but 10,000 meters.... I just don't think I could walk that far.

They need a 100 meter walk for people like me.

And I should be allowed to use a segway. Or better yet, one of those cripple scooters so I wouldn't have to stand up.


...maybe I'm just not olympic material

That's really not true anymore...

yea, you think those chinese olympians goto school and know how to read/write or anything else? they were taken when they were 3.


How about those protest zones china set up where the chinese have to apply for permits to protest? Every person that has applied has been sent to a forced labor camp for a year.

I was listening to a documentary about middle class chinese the other day. Think it was BBC International. It was about middle school exams, and how tough they were and how which high school you went to changed everything, not to mention kindergarten and the entire normal school is balls in other countries thing. The difference was it wasnt the parents, or the school system itself driving the students to such extremes, it was the students themselves.

Because they wanted things, material things, when they got out of school, and the jobs to support such things.

I'd say the whole OCD ahead of the game trait is cultural, not the product of their admittedly crappy communist government. East vs west values, etc.

That's only what, 6.....maybe 7 miles?

Even I can walk farther than that.
