☯ The Pristine Trinity Sect ☯

"Everything in the universe exists in a state of perpetual flux. Permanence is an illusion. Human "progress" is an illusion, for "progress" is impossible in a zero-sum universe. Humanity is riding a ferris wheel, spinning around in circles without aim. This corresponds in an essential respect with hedonic adaptation. Your entire life can be summed up as one big dopamine rollercoaster. Everything you do in life is about getting your next dopamine fix. There is nothing more profound about your existence." #redpill

Michael Phelps and Jordyn Wieber taste DEFEAT at the 2012 Olympics

London 2012 Team USA updates:

After getting his ass handed to him by teammate Ryan Lochte in the 400-meter medley (and then not even making the podium), Michael Phelps continued to suffer defeat by failing to win gold again in the freestyle relay, with Team USA coming in second.

Most decorated Olympian?  Or most OVERRATED?

Meanwhile, Jordyn Wieber failed to to qualify for the all-around competition (by 0.233 of a point), while Alexandra Raisman and Gabrielle Douglas advanced, meaning the reigning world champion in gymnastics won't even be competing for the gold against the rest of the "best."

I'm guessing that even if they had passed the trials, Nastia Liukin and Alicia Sacramone probably would have FAILED to qualify as well.  I guess that's sort of a consolation?

At any rate, that's what overconfidence gets you.  A long hard smack in the face, a.k.a. a reality check.

Here's some words of wisdom for all you morons out there:

Anticipate everything, and expect NOTHING.

And now let's take a look at the current medal count shall we?

Oh look, China is dominating with the most gold medals as well as the most medals overall.  What a shocker.  As usual, the REAL #1 world power is handing the competition their bitch ASSES (hey, if NBC can be biased, then so can I ... AGAINST Team USA.  How the fuck do you like that, bitches?)
