Olympic's Blue Screen Of Death Moment

August 12, 2008


Apparently a computer went blue screen of death during the opening ceremonies at the Olympics a few days ago. Yep, right when a flying Li Ning was about to wrap up the torch-lighting ceremony too. No idea what the screen was actually supposed to be displaying, but if I had to guess, I'd say definitely not that. Does this count as an epic fail? I was gonna put it in the title, but I know some of you are sensitive about what counts and what doesn't. So, what's the ruling? And how about, instead of a blue screen of death, it was somebody farming gold in World of Warcraft. Would that count?

Hit the jump for a couple more pictures.
