    I was in China @ 2006, it's said that there's 10% in one area speaks English. I lived in Beijing and saw the Sport City and building they're making, at the moment it's crowded with just them Chinese and lots of traffic. They're working and building for the 2008 Olympics, heck, the whole Beijing people and foreigners gonna be just walking all the way. China made this for their aim to get Foreign people stay in China! I was supposed to be a Bouncer in that Olympics, Lol, I just left China for everyday being the same boring one.

    This is going to be one hell of an event... Really looking forward to swimming, track & field sprints, and water polo.

    Rumors of some countries boycotting because of China's actions in Tibet are beginning to grow.
    France is the first to come out publicly
    I have to say ,as much as I love the Olympics and feel bad for the athletes who may suffer,I hope Canada shows some balls and joins in.It would be a small enough price to pay to show real support for human rights.
