Honestly, one of the best Disney movies ever created was "Cool Runnings" in my opinion, the reason, it was a real story that showed dreams can come true if you put your mind to it and take action. It also showed that not all stories have a fairytale ending and that their is victory even in failure. Quite a lot of life lessons. If you have not watched cool running's yet, I suggest you do. It is a film that can be enjoyed by the entire family and appreciated by anyone around the world.

The story of Cool Runnings is based on the Jamaican National Bobsleigh team that represented Jamaica at the 1988 Winter Olympics Game in Calgary, Alberta. The team were the underdogs as they came from the island of Jamaica which has never seen snow much less played winter sports. Over the years, Jamaica has returned to the sport in the two-man bobsleigh category in 1992, 1998, 2002, 2014 and even in 2022.

In 2014, Jamaica qualified for the Winter games but lacked funding ( the story of the Caribbean & Africa). But the DogeCoin community raised $25,000-$30,000 to help the team get to Sochi. And on that note, I have HUGE respect for the Dogecoin community.

Something Historical is happening

Though Jamaica has been competing in the winter Olympics over the years in bobsleigh events, it will be the first time since 1988 that a four man team has took to the ice. The Pilot leading the four man team will be Shanwayne Stephens, he will also be leading the two-man race as well. Another historic moment for the Jamaica bobsleigh is that it is the first time that a Jamaica has qualified for 3 Olympic bobsled events: four-man , two-man and the monobob, which is a new category, that will be a one-woman bobsled piloted Jazmine Fenlator. Below you can see Shanwayne and Jazmine bussing a move. They look ready to me.

@rarej I figured out some things that could do with some dev-ing on the reggaejahm interface. For instant, twitter embeds, Spotify, apple music, Instagram. I realized not even twitter shows up. It is the same with the new interfaces out. Not sure how hard that is to do but I think it would be a plus if people could share content easily.

Yeah, I think it makes the transition from web 2 easier LOL, and good for artiste or anyone to share snippets of songs instead of YouTube links.

HAhaha that was indeed a funny scene. I watched it last night as it came of Japanese TV but it wasn't the same when he said in the language, for some reason no English option.

Many shows and films don't have the same effect when not watched in the original language, which is why I never watch anime dubbed.

You know I watched it the first year I came here. Haven’t watched it since but it’s a good conversation starter. Once we say we’re from Jamaica, the response is Usain Bolt, Bob Marley or Cool Runnings.
Di E-magazine a gwaan man. It noice. Lol
