Who will be watching the 2000 Sydney game first?

This needs some thinking... Whan I was a school child, I was
asked to show that those sitting in front of a TV can hear
an announcement earlier than those in the stadium!

However, for the 2000 Sydney game, I have just noticed that
those North Americans (especially, those in Hawaii and California)
will be see it a day earlier than it actually takes place!

Suppose that someone sets a world record on 1 June, they will
probably SEE it on 31 May! This is not fair...

This effect deals with the speed of sound through air vs. the speed of
light to the T.V. set and then the speed of sound to the listner. Very
complicated for a school child, but hey if they can program the V.C.R.  :)

Well this involves the teory of the spped of light. See all the
competitors in the 2000 Olympics will be on new 'Energizer 'Roids by
Eveready. They will be competing so fast that they will be breaking the
light barrier and they will be seeing the light transmitted from moments
past. They will also later the fabric of time and cause their images to
be imprinted on our past. Now this will only be picked up by Special
TED TURNER cameras which you can watch on Pay-Per-View for just 999.99
This service has the full sponsorship of the *** services of America,
who are betting the farm (they took from the old lady who lived in a shoe
and now lives on a bench) so they can triple their money against those
people who don't get the service.

This is all hush-hush, and we aren't supposed to tell any newbies, so
stop posting to so many countries.

Anywhoooo, hope this perked up some people's spirits afetr our gruelling
FAKT finding episodes of as the swimmer turns, or the Young and the
***-strokeless, ANOTHER WORLDrecord, The Ma's of our lives. :)

Ciao Now!

Well actually I'll be seeing it first - I'll be at the stadia...

But for events run in the afternoon and evenings in 2000, the yanks will
have to stay up all night.  Like I did in 1992 and will do in 1996.  Fair
enough I reckon.

NO, even if you participate, Americans will probably see it
a day earlier! So, if you want to know the results earlier,
you'd better to go to America.
