We streamed the opening ceremonies.

As per my quorum commentary:

Quote from: Madness
The 6yo was dead set on watching it "at 6am!" because his teacher told him to (I wish I got that kind of automatic respect). And doing my best Charlie Brown's teacher's impression while explaining to the chillens and the 11yo why this Olympics (as most) is both historic and complicated.

Russian atheletes unable to walk in under a Russian flag because Russia is banned this year (if I recall correctly) so they have to play as "Olympic Independents," SK/NK walking together because Drumpf (!!), Israel and Palestine still participating despite Drumpf's (!!) declaration regarding Jeruselum, and how none of the Olympic architecture is designed to be recycled (except in a few cool instances over the years) and is ultimately a huge waste of money for the host country.

I like watching various skiing and boarding events (was skiing on some Canadian mountains with my Dad as young as three).

Final of fifteen is up. Interesting reading.

I found the same issue with Bright. Netflix seems to think since they can, they should - for my part referencing the absolutely egregious use of the word "fuck" in Bright.
