Breathtaking, imaginative and innovative indeed. Only one authenticity hitch:
"Some of the fireworks during the Olympic Opening Ceremony were computer-generated, the London Telegraph reports. The fireworks were set off at the stadium, but the difficulty and danger of filming the spectacle live via helicopter resulted in a pre-recorded, computer-generated shot being used for broadcast, the newspaper says."

The opening ceremonies were exceptional. Regarding the flags, I think Paraguary's flag has a different design on each side (as does Moldova).

The ponytailed girl in a red dress who sang "Ode to the Motherland" during Friday's Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics was fit for the event, but apparently her voice was not. Lin Miaoke, 9, from a Beijing primary school, has become a national sensation since Friday night, giving interviews to all the most popular newspapers. However, the voice belongs to a Yang Peiyei, a seven-year-old girl who had won a gruelling competition to perform the anthem.

Being a chubby little girl with uneven teeth are unacceptable. The main consideration was the national interest: that the child on the screen should be flawless in image, in her internal feelings, and in her expression. In the matter of her voice, the young singer was flawless, in the unanimous opinion of all the members of the team. But she will always be the little fat invisible girl who is best heard but not seen.

Go Andres D. It's Paraguay!!!! Different image on each side.

Awesome and scarily militaristic at the same time. Cirque de Soleil on Steroids. I hope we never engage in a war with this country - we'd be defeated in a nano second!
