Winter Olympics 2018

Post by pErvinalia » Mon Feb 19, 2018 3:58 am

All the sports I want to watch occur in precise couple of hour blocks, and are over in a day, two at most. Fucking figure skating, though, it's been on for 3 or 4 days now and it doesn't show any signs of stopping. WTF?! Who watches that shit? Surely they could get it done with in an hour and then we don't have to see any more non-sports events at the games.

Couch potato squeals about not getting exactly what he wants for how long he wants it whenever he wants it.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Any "sport" that requires subjective judges to determine who has won is not a sport. Figure skating is definitely not a sport but entertainment and should not be part of the olympics.
Why do they give style marks to ski-jumping? The Olympic Motto is: "Faster, Higher, Stronger". Nothing about prettier.

If you add "Smarter" to the motto, chess is a sport. No subjective judges required to determine who has won.

Is it an Olympic sport though? How about snakes and ladders? Tiddlywinks anyone? There are international tiddlywinks tournaments and nothing subjective there.

I'm not a fan of the subjective judging sports. The trick-skiing, figure skating and snowboarding stuff should not be Olympic sports, IMO. But, other people like them, so that's fine for them. In the summer olympics, gymnastics is like that. I think you really have to consider them "sports" but they just aren't my preferred type. Sport really is any physical activity which amounts to a competition among participants, whether individually or as a team, where the physical activity is the focus of the competition.

Chess would not be a "sport" because the physical exertion of moving a chess piece is incidential. It's not a competition as to who moves chess pieces faster or better. It's game of skill and strategy.

Figure skating is, indeed, a sport, because it's physical exertion is the focus of the competition. It's who is the better skater, under the rules of that competition.
“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up, But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.” - Ilhan Omar
