there was a Commonwealth Games in Australia last week, it's all finished now.

Not sure why it's called common wealth with Aus and UK snatching up about half of all the medals, that hardly seems like sharing does it?

Another major [sporting] event gone by with not much news, the last Olympics came and went with barely any office talk, the Winter Olympics barely registered (in fact the lounge was the only place I saw it mentioned), elections seem to float past with barely a mention - the last USA election had less days of news than the one before.

- seems these days the hype is dropping for any event that's not about shopping or/and stupidity. Apple and Samsung new model releases get more cover than natural disasters - same thing every time: gormless idiots (some even with young children) camping outside stores in freezing wet weather days before the release.

I'll leave it there with this to ponder: When did "the news" stop being about news?
