166th post

I sure made a mistake last evening. I told you I needed 1.5 hours to pee and

poop per day. The memories in my mind can only recollect being in the

toilet for doing the latter for more than 0.5 hours was when I've had to

prepare for colon exams or when I've had a very bad upset stomach and

needed desperately to throw up. I always go outdoors to throw up if I can. I

I just stick my right hand finger next to my thumb down as far as I can in

my throat and puke (I don't like this word for throwing up, but maybe

maybe some of you are more familiar with this word than throw-up)

and continue to do this until the green bile we all know about ceases to

come from our mouths.

And another thing that I forgot to talk about. A lot of people spend a lot of

their time doing is texting, picture taking (selfie or something else), talking,

uploading, downloading, watching the face of, etc., and that is the cellular

telephone. I believe that people nowadays spend as much as 5 hours or more

on their cell phone whereas I only spend 5 to ten minutes, so I'll just add it to

the category of peeing and pooping and not add it to my total count.

Well, I hope you with queasy stomachs ain't sick for reading this. Maybe

I should've typed a warning at the beginning, sorry.

And because I spend only 0.5 hours in the toilet (from the top), I have

9 hours free time instead of 8.

Christ the Redeemer:

Thanks to BBC News.

"Despite the religious inspiration behind the statue, it was never seen

exclusively in a religious light. Count Celso, one of the instigators of the

project in the 1920s, described the completed work as a “monument to

science, art and religion”.

“It’s a religious symbol, a cultural symbol and a symbol of Brazil,” says

Padre Omar, rector of the chapel in the base of the statue. “Christ the

Redeemer brings a marvelous vista of welcoming open arms to all those

who pass through the city of Rio de Janeiro.”

Flame and torch relay....

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The modern tradition of moving the Olympic Flame via a relay system

from Greece to the Olympic venue began with the Berlin Games in 1936.

Months before the Games are held, the Olympic Flame is lit on a torch,

with the rays of the Sun concentrated by a parabolic reflector, at the site

of the Ancient Olympics in Olympia, Greece. The torch is then taken out

of Greece, most often to be taken around the country or continent where

the Games are held. The Olympic torch is carried by athletes, leaders,

celebrities, and ordinary people alike, and at times in unusual conditions,

such as being electronically transmitted via satellite for Montreal 1976,

submerged underwater without being extinguished for Sydney 2000, or

in space and at the North Pole for Sochi 2014. On the final day of the torch

relay, the day of the Opening Ceremony, the Flame reaches the main

stadium and is used to light a cauldron situated in a prominent part of

the venue to signify the beginning of the Games."

From Wonderopolis.

"A key event in high school track and field competitions, as well as at college-

level and Olympic competitions, is the 100-meter sprint. In America, you

might have heard this race referred to as the 100-yard dash, since Americans

don't always use the metric system. One hundred yards equates to only

91.4 meters, so the 100-yard dash is actually a shorter race.

The 100-meter dash .... remains one of the most popular and prestigious

events in the world of sports. In fact, the winner of the 100-meter dash at the

Olympics is usually considered “the fastest man/woman in the world."

Currently, Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the reigning 100-meter dash

champion at both the Olympics and the world championships. Given those

titles, many consider her to be the fastest woman in the world.

Fraser-Pryce's personal best time in the 100-meter dash was set in June

2012 in Kingston, Jamaica. She completed the race that day in a blistering

10.70 seconds. Given that time, however, Fraser-Pryce is not the fastest

woman in history.

That title belongs to the one and only Florence Griffith-Joyner. Known as

“Flo-Jo" by her many fans, Griffith-Joyner still holds the all-time world

record in the 100-meter dash at 10.49 seconds set in 1988. Although some

people dispute that record due to possible wind conditions and allegations

of performance-enhancing drug use, the record still stands."

And this evening I'll write, copy and paste about another Jamican Olympic

and you know who he is. His initials are USLB.

This is day 15 of the XXXI Olympiad.

From CBS Sports Olympic medal tracker

USA:                        38 gold, 35 silver, 32 bronze for a total of 105.

Great Britain:           24 gold, 22 silver, 14 bronze for a total of 60.

China:                      22 gold, 18 silver, 25 bronze for a total of 65.

Germany:                14 gold, 8 silver, 13 bronze for a total of 35.

Russia:                    13 gold, 16 silver, 19 bronze for a total of 48.

China and Russia won no medals since last evening and Germany won one

gold medal and traded places once again with Russia in the top five.
