Five things we're all wondering about
1 Injury forces Liu Xiang to pull out of the 110 metres hurdles race... for national interest, they'll now replace him with someone younger and prettier
2 Michael Phelps wins eight gold medals... he has so much gold around his neck, even P. Diddy and Kanye West are jealous
3 Some Hong Kong audiences find dressage boring... they're also disappointed none of the betting booths at Sha Tin were open
4 Complaints of empty seats inside venues but lots of scalpers outside... who says China isn't progressing fast enough towards a free market system?
5 Smog and heat surprisingly disappear during Olympics... it seems the myth is true - the government, at least the one in Beijing, really does control the weather
