Mind Games of the XXIX Olympiad

I didn't care enough to watch the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. I didn't doubt that the Chinese would put up a more impressive spectacle than any host had done before, but I am just not interested in ceremonies and spectacles. Instead, I took a walk and then caught up somewhat on my e-mail.

Every day, I am more glad I didn't care. First we found out about the computer-generated fireworks, and now the lip-syncing girl. So, what else is fake? Oh, yes, some spectators.

Now why can't injured athletes just send their computer-generated holographic images to the Olympics? It would work particularly well in individual sports like gymnastics.
