Subject: RE: 2008 LetsRun.com Awards
Ok I remember this post from during the Olympics and really thought it was funny.
RE: Is Letsrun banned in Beijing?
Im a Letsrun dealer. I live in China where free speech is censored especially in areas of Tibet, human rights and distance running results and discussion. In my reasonably sized village(pop.1,000,000) I befriend everyone I see running and after a short while I invite them to my house for some green tea, accupuncture,noodles and a little synchronized diving.
When I am confident I have gained their friendship and trust I mention the topic of running and the lack of discussion between runners available in China. At this prompting my friend will, without fail, start complaining about his innermost yearning to converse about running, preferably anonymously. All of them describe their longing to know what Masters races are on in places they don't live, to complain about TV coverage of the Olympics and to tell the running world that Pitbulls are too dangerous,case closed!
By now I know they are ready for the fabled Letsrun, more addictive than heroin and crystal meth combined, but I let them continue, just to be sure.
They tell me that on their wife has stopped having sex with them and they wonder if this has happened to anyone else and that Michael Phelps is NOT the greatest Olympian ever, that all swimming events are the same and they are all easy aswell.Now I know, they are ready.
I bring them down to my basement where I have twenty computers all hooked up to the internet, on Letsrun.com of course. At each computer is a runner in running gear. I explain to my friend that these are all my friends and I let them use my computers, free of charge of course. When one man slumps down at a computer(sleep depravation from addiction) I tell my friend he is simply tired from his long run.I remove the sleeping Chinaman and I sit my friend down at the now vacant computer.
After about an hour I return to my new friend and gently suggest to him that isn't it time for his run. Yes of course it is he replies and he thanks me and leaves.
The next day he returns and asks to go on Letsrun. Of course I say, no problem. After one week he is completely addicted so I begin to charge a reasonable price. I reckon my little enterprise has made me one of the richest men in all of China. Jealous much?
