Get Your Very Own Olympic Torch… Replica

Olypic Torch

For a paltry $500 you can have a replica (built from left over steel from the “Birds Nest” national stadium) of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Torch.  I love the Olympics as much as the next guy/gal… but not sure I want a 29cm tall version of it laying around collecting dust.

By the way… anyone notice how great China looks in HDTV?  Ever been there?  Not that nice and super smoggy.

    Well they already admitted that part of the opening ceremony fireworks were faked with computer graphics and overlays….and were several articles on how HDTVs resolution demands “better than real” quality…. We live in a Photoshop world!
