Pulsing

So the Paralympics have begun.  I have to say that so far I am not very impressed with the Channel 4 coverage.  They spend so much time talking in the studio that they aren't showing half the swimming races.  A Brit broke the world record.  The studio team told us he had and then afew minutes later they showed the race.  I feel they'd already rather given away the ending...

They have also shown some cycling and there was something wrong with the sound balance.  When the commentator was talking during the race it made the roar of the crowd "pulse", which actually made my ear hurt!

And that programme that was in pre-9.30am was embarassingly toe-curling.  That bloke who was one of the presenters was awful (I think he might normally present T4).

I would like to comment more on the sport, but they aren't showing very much of it.  Come on Channel 4.  You can do better than this.  Show us more of the sport (and sort out your sound in the cycling)!

On a more amusing note, you might well have heard the tale of the Spanish lady who recently carried out a rather unfortunate restoration of a painting of Jesus.  Well, now you can do your own.  You know you want to...

I'm liking her brush strokes. A masterpiece methinks :-)

Please prove you're not a robot. What's that all about on your comments box ?

TF - Good to hear from you! I so love that story about the painting. She tried! I hope you are using your artistic expertise to create your won masterpiece. Some of the ones other people have already done are very amusing.

Is that what the commenst box says. I didn't realise that. Perhaps it is part of a government plan to see if there is a secret army of robots who are trying to take over the world?

Me reckons these robots will do a much better job in running our world than the human fools currently in power. The day of reckoning is just over the horizon ;-)

TF - I am now wondering if you are a super-evolved robot who has managed to circumvent the technical challenges of this blog.

I do think you might have a good point about robots doing a better job though...
