When World War III rolls around...

So apparently, the U.S. Gymnastics team got schooled by a bunch of pre-teens and toddlers.

What began as whispers among the media and gymnastics insiders weeks ago about the ages of three of China's female Olympic gymnasts -- Jiang Yuyuan, Yang Yilin and He Kexin -- has grown into ear-shattering, head-hurting shouts. Despite assurances by Chinese officials that all three are 16, the minimum age of eligibility for Olympic competition, newly discovered documents and records prove otherwise.

The New York Times first looked into the age of China's gymnasts with a story on July 27 that focused primarily on He Kexin, whose birthdate on numerous online records was listed as January 1, 1994, making her 14 when the Games began and ineligible to compete.

I guess what we can conclude from this is that when World War III rolls around we'll all be annihilated by an army of 11-yeal-old chinese boys toting pint-sized, Suzuki Method AK47s.
