Usain Clap Strikes Again

When you see lightning it's in bolt form, when you hear thunder it's a clap...

I venture to say that Usain Bolt is moving so fast that the lightning bolt isn't quick enough and maybe we're only hearing the clap as he breaks sound barriers. With the new World Record's in the 100M and 200M under his (superhero utility) belt, what the hell is next for this guy? Can he move any faster...

I watched a report that calculated he was moving 30 mph when he broke set the new 100 meter dash record of 9.58. Here is a list of other land creatures clocked in the 30 mph range: Greyhound (39.35 mph), Rabbit (35 mph), Mule deer (35 mph), Jackal (35 mph), Reindeer (32 mph), Grizzly bear (30 mph). I hate to be the one to have to say it, but his GRIZZLY speed is a little suspicious, could he be cheating? We always associate our high speed sprinters with stocky muscular types, Usain is tall and lanky. Everyone on the starting gate looks focused and intense, he always looks calm, playful and chummy. Sprinters are traditionally tired after pushing their bodies to the human limits, Mr. Bolt never seems out of breath or even the least bit expended after setting unbelieveable records. What the hell is going on here?

Whatever it is, I hope, like Derek Jeter, that he remains clean and continues to impress. Anything other than that could be devastating.

(Feel that face full of celebration)
