Olympic level dictionary remembering

Isn't it strange how activities that would normally bore the pants off a six year old become interesting when wrapped-up in technology? e.g. building blocks. Of course, some things simply remain boring.

I wonder if I'm the only person in the entire world who doesn't care about the olympics (although a few sportsmen have caught me eye, my interest could hardly be called sporting). I don't understand why it is noble for people to become obsessive about sporting achievement but devoting four years of your life to, say, memorising the contents of a dictionary would be seen as (at least) slightly eccentric, if not bordering on complete madness.

Apparently my departed team member is going to have an industrial tribunal; I think one of the powers of these things is to force re-instatement: I secretly hope we lose and are forced to take him back. I have images of US court-room dramas. "What do you want?" "The truth!" "You can't handle the truth." "Try me." "I had a tall mocha." "The whole truth!" "Damn it, I had a cookie too."
