in reply to I watch the Olympics

I'm so massively disgusted with the corporate virtual ownership of the Olympics, I'm not bothering. Fortunately, this is easy, as I don't actually get broadcast TV anyway.

I hear you can't take a can of Pepsi in, as Coke has bought this nauseating privilege. What happened to competing by producing a better product? Why don't they just start blackmailing, killing and buying people to force their choices? Oh wait, they already do that in poorer countries, at least as far as manufacturing goes.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

    Did you just compare companies advertisting, to them killing off innocent people for corporate gain? I'm guessing (and hoping) that you made a very long typo....
