Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

Olympics and World Peace

Well, the 2008 Olympics are just about over, the closing ceremonies are playing as I write this.

It was great to see such peace and cooperation in the midst of the trials and tribulations that started the Olympics and the events in Russia and Georgia.

Athletes shaking hands, slapping each others backs and generally congratulating them when they just broke their own chances at a medal was great sportsmanship. Competition is a great thing but at this level it is nice to see that most of the participants have a sense of fair play and sportsmanship not only for their team but for everyone attending.

Robin Williams once joked about China and how 1 billion people could say Boom and make the same effect of a nuclear bomb, or something like that. Wouldn't that be great, not the bomb part but a lot of people doing that at the same time.

How about this, what a world it would be if we could all do something together, well maybe not together but at the same time.

What if everyone in the world jumped a foot off the ground at Midnight, 12:00 Greenwich Time, New Years, 2009.

If everyone in the world could pause with their rejoicing as well as their problems, difficulties, sorrow and pain to do something they know so many others are doing, what would that be able to accomplish in our world.

A sense of belonging and togetherness that would be larger than any individual thing we each ourselves have done, or could do.

Let's try it, why not?
