"There`s an outside chance that team GB may still catch team USA..."

No there is not.

I`d hope that most (intelligent) US citizens would be pleased with their position on the medal table, they`ve run China (who had more resources at their disposal) a close second all things considered.

In some ways the Robot and the games are very similar, a lot of time and effort went into something that could have been a woeful flop. I`m pretty proud of what `us` Brits managed to achieve here(for once).

I`m also impressed that the Mars Rover pulled off its Thunderbirds landing technique. The mars rover *is* quite something. Sincerely, well done USA.

..and will the real winner of the medal table please stand up...

DING!

Human beings care entirely too much about sports.

I`ve been sitting here playing in a social on-line game and watching the movie, "The Right Stuff." I`m stressing about some trivial in-game conflicts and thinking, here`s a movie that`s a true story about men doing something worthwhile and heroic and I`m getting all stressed over a game in a virtual world. Try to remember what`s important and what`s just a game.

What`s so bad about winning medals and landing a rover on mars at the same time? Cheers for science!

Exploring mars has nothing to do with athletics.. The only gold medal I give a crap about is mens basketball.

@Bantangoo: Oh I agree that the picture itself is stupid and unjustly negates the accomplishments of the Chinese. I was merely pointing of that so many people of other countries were attacking all Americans as a result of this photo - which is just as unjust.

@ HumanAction: this is an infantile picture.
it says: of course we don`t win the olympic games but we land on mars.

it compares the apples with the pears

in this way the europe could say:
we don`t win the olympic games but we created the renaissance.

and the middle est:
we don`t win the olympic games but we created the neolithic revolution.

ecc.


this is stupid.

"who gives a fcuk about a robot on mars?"
"this post is so embarassing!"
"I think they`re probably still too busy counting just how much money the US is debt to them to care. Wasn`t it over $1.2 trillion at last count?"
"Bremir yes i`ve noticed too this behavior, and is the most antiolympic thing to do."
"Only in America will you find people jump at the opportunity to put down other peoples accomplishments if they`re doing better than Americans."

You Europeans sure are a hateful bunch... See? We can all look at outliers and pretend they are norm.

Every American who receives a gold medal is doing so in clothes made in China.

The Wonka meme has jumped the shark. In a year or two, nobody will remember much about the Olympics. In the US they`ll remember Phelps and the Fab Five. The rest won`t matter, so who cares who got how many medals.

Perhaps the Chinese should feel more connected to their olymians. They are removed from their homes once their talent is evaluated. They become wards of the state; they are developed into products of that state. American`s having a stake in Americans winning is a dysfunctional relationship, at best. The athlete`s family makes the primary investment in time and money. If they play it right, sponsorships are there for some. If they win gold, they become stinking rich from them. No tax-payer`s dollars are directed to the athletes.

"Oh, to heck with nationalist claptrap like this. Scientific achievement is for all humanity, not a nation-state."

Well said. The U.S. was poised to build the largest particle accelerator to date, over a decade ago. The U.S. Congress, at the time, chose to fund the bulk of the International Space Station, instead. To this day it is still an international effort, just as the LHC on the Franco-Swiss border was imagined and built in partnership with scientists from a global community.

When it comes to science, we are the human race.

I have to admit when it comes to space flight I`m incredibly jealous of America(even if you did crash our Mars lander). The UK contribute an very small amount to exploitative spacecraft and have a policy against manned space flight.
As for the Olympics the USA and China are amazingly bad at competing. Their weighted medal count by population is low. However I don`t really care too much for the Olympics.
I do feel sad when the average American flaunts the accomplishments when I`ve been following them in detail for years. It`s like you`ve walked into my house while I`m eating and slapped me in the face. Then again I really didn`t contribute anything, and I guess you did with your taxes.
There`s a big problem with European Space flight anyway. There`s no suitable grounds to launch from. I think we sometimes use Kazakhstan or one of the former French colonies in Africa.

@Andrew155,

I couldn`t agree more. Haha, dumb Europeans. They actually think it`s wiser to build a particle accelerator capable of discovering new areas of our understanding of physics than it is to examine rocks. Europe is such a dumb country.

(My thoughts go out to all the brain equipped Americans who are unfortunately wrongly stereotyped by the ignorance of a few loud morons that `think` they represent your country`s views)

Wow, this was hardly a multi-national effort. It was operated by NASA, the American Boeing and Lockheed were the major contractors. Only Europeans could think they played a significant role here.

Europeans just need to realize that they don`t care about space, they have contributed very little of value to space exploration, being outclassed by even the Russians. Even with the ISS, the Europeans contributed very little relative to their capacity. Japan provided more modules, even Canada did its fair share.

And to Bremir and piperfawn, hypocrisy thy name is you. Not just here, but all too often.

@kingdomCome: As for calling it multi-national - this would be akin to calling the F-35 JSF "multi-national." We all know who was really behind it...

@kingdomCome: I`ve since noted that, an honest mistake - my apologies. However, seems to be quite a bit of anti-American rhetoric running rampant here.

As for the quip about Europeans, do you deny it? Many Europeans jump at the opportunity to "shame" all Americans due to the actions of so few.

Only in Europe will you find people jumping at the opportunity to accuse Americans of putting down others accomplishments if they`re doing it better.

HolyGod was merely saying let`s wait and see. He did not say that Americans would have the most, nor did he say that the Chinese would. You sir, are the one "jump[ing] at the opportunity".
