olympics, snow, and norman

so the olympics are here. or something. has anyone actually heard anything about them? all i've come across are articles about how it's not snowing in canada. to anyone who knows anything about canada, this is not a big surprise, because canada is usually a big disappointment. the one time i've been impressed with canada was when i learned that the longest confirmed kill in a war was conducted by a canadian special forces sniper (see here to watch a video about him, during which the commentator mispronoonces words as he talks aboot Rob Furlong:

school is going well for me right now. the most recent concept i've been learning about is the "fee simple subject to condition subsequent." in layman's terms, this is a legal topic which has gone completely over my head. it all started with some guy named norman invading england in 1066, but that's as much as i remember cuz i wasn't listening in class.

time to go surf later, dudes.

p.s. here's a video of chiP dancing (to my beatbox in the background). when the kid hears any type of rhythm, he immediately ceases whatever he's doing and engages in intense dancing. my favorite part is about 1 second in when he throws his left hand up in the air.
