fialleril: [the fires and the black river of loss whose other side is salvation] (Olympics 3)
The men's 100m final was AMAZING. And for once, I really have to squee about the gold medalist. Jamaica's Usain Bolt (who is very appropriately named, LOL) was so far ahead of the pack that he started celebrating before he even reached the finish line, and it was just so fun to watch. He broke the world record, too, but he wasn't concerned about that, because he'd just won Jamaica's first gold in the 100m. And his mom's reaction in the stands was just great! :D

To top it all off, both the silver and bronze medalists were celebrating like they'd just won the lottery. Most excellent race ever.

Watch it here.

So the first set of gymnastics apparatus finals happened, and I watched them. Men's floor, women's vault, men's pommel horse, and women's floor. There were... a lot of ups and downs here.

under a cut because for once I may have seen it before most of you )
fialleril: [somebody's gotta save our skins] (voice of reason)
I haven't actually seen The Clone Wars yet (though I have seen a pretty extensive clip at Disney World), but I've been looking at some pics, and I felt that this must be observed. Using TV Tropes, naturally.

Obi-Wan and Anakin both apparently realized that it was foolish to charge into battle without at least some body armor. So they outfitted themselves with clone armor over their regular Jedi outfits. Outfits which, I might add, actually covered their entire bodies to begin with. (Actually, Anakin appears to have taken a side trip into the future in order to steal his own armor, but I digress.)

So of course it’s only natural that Ahsoka goes into battle in...a tube top? But that makes perfect sense. Everyone knows that women don't need armor, anyway. At least, they don't need their armor to actually be functional.
