I have been boycotting the Olympics since after the Ben Johnson race in Seoul 1988.
I love track and fields, but after that race, it left a bitter taste in my mouth. It seems that the Olympics are not about showing the best of athletes but what gear is the best & worse of all which latest illegal drug will be undetected.
So I hope will be doing better things with my time than cheering & investing emotions on some sportsman or woman that might be exposed as a cheat later on.

If you avoid the american sprinters then you have more chance of avoiding the drug cheats. There are still a lot out there that have the original ideals at heart.

May I just add that I shall be giving Coronation Street a miss.

I have no interest in it and find it trivial

I shall also be giving the choir show that is on Saturday a miss

I shall also be giving ITV 1 (in general) a miss as it's schedule is mainly dumbed down trash TV - ok, the South Bank Show is an exception

I shall be giving playing on tube lines a miss

I shall be giving eating dog poo a miss

I shall be giving ascending mount everest a miss

I shall be giving walking the moon a miss

I shall be giving putting a drill to my eye and boring into my brain a miss too.

Just thought I'd let you all know

Smile

I know students are always claiming poverty (I was one too once), not enough money for shopping, etc, but eating what you find is a little extreme don't you think.

not the best... 200 for a new bearing and axel on the car, that was a nice start :-(

Just thought as someone thought it important enough to announce something they're "not" doing, I thought I'd join in and add a few things I'll not be doing too Wink

Anything you guys will not be doing today then?
