Somewhat in keeping for a country where other countries goods are openly counterfeited to an insane volume. Guess you have to know what you're good at.

We did catch a little of the interior replay, where thousands of Chinese were reduced to essentially pixels on the floor of the stadium, a fairly fitting analogy on attitudes regarding the individual spirit...
