I'm a fangirl, a college student, and a writer. Thanks to the Internet, at least 70% of my thoughts now emerge in the form of memes. And pandas. If I post something that makes no sense, it's probably RP related.

 

Actual half-cheetah person Kirani James.

Damn, those other dudes weren’t even close. Congratulations to him and Grenada!

….wow. And nbc didn’t cover that at all.

This is a huge symbolic gesture, and ONCE AGAIN, NBC drops the ball. It’s so incredibly, fucking unfortunate that Olympic coverage in the United States has been sold to a corporation that doesn’t understand symbolism in the slightest. 
Seriously, NBC, are you trying to become FOX News?

All I can hope is that the huge amount of complaints about NBC’s coverage will prompt the network to actually attempt some semblance of decent coverage during the next Olympics.
GDI, NBC, SOME THINGS THAT DON’T INVOLVE THE UNITED STATES ARE STILL A BIG DEAL.

i don’t think michael phelps understands how arms work

#Well he’s got 19 gold medals so maybe we are the ones that aren’t using them right

Michael Phelps is a new, aquatic species of human, so it’s only to be expected that his flipper-arms are different.

I would read the fuck out of that. What does everyone compete in? What about Tony and Loki and Clint? (Bruce is totally someone’s coach, but idek.)

Natasha is totally a gymnast. Steve is a discus thrower, and Thor does the hammer toss. Clint does archery. I feel like Loki is the judge that hates every performance, and Tony might be someone’s trainer too. He and Bruce have intense conversations about workout routines and the ideal mix of electrolytes in protein shakes.

Team Russia = Ninja ballerinas. BB, I think you just actually described Black Widow. Though that ballerina thing was a false memory but still. >_>

Now I want an Avengers Olympic AU, where Steve is competing for Team USA, Natasha for Team Russia, and Thor for Team Asgard. They all hang out in the Olympic Village and are fabulous.

How are gymnasts so damn bouncy?

I am watching the Olympics women’s gymnastics section that I recorded, and it is insane. They are just superhumanly athletic. Team USA is so flippy and glorious. Team Russia are like ninja ballerinas. It’s gorgeous.

Me and my mom, watching the women's Olympic rowing

Me: The small people at the front of the boat are called 'coxswains.'

Mom: ....hee hee hee. Cox.
