The International Olympic Committee is a jerk!

Remember that fun scene of the Japanese women's hockey team hugging then bowing to each other in celebration of their one and only Olympic hockey goal in 16 year of competition?

There was a little 10 second video of it on youtube...

But it's gone now...

"This video contains content from International Olympic Committee, who has blocked it on copyright grounds."

10 FRICKEN seconds! 10 seconds of pure joy... wholly owned by the International Olympic Committee and they refuse to share. JERKS!

Enjoy it while you can... the source will probably get whacked.

Go to one of those sites where you download the nzb's...

Don't they realize it's like free advertising?

And that this kind of moment doesn't belong to the Olympic Committee, but to the athletes.

Besides which, that is a 10 second excerpt of a much longer event, so that should easily fall cleanly within the boundaries of fair use.

Be here now. Be someplace else later. Is that so complicated?
Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have? Bupkes.

Exactly!



You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

And hope is a lousy defense.

There is no safety for honest men
