"After Dives, Rinsing Off and Raising Eyebrows"

From the NY Times article:
"The pool is 79 degrees, and when the divers come out, they are cold. Since there is often a long wait between dives, they shower to keep their muscles warm."
"The showers are very hot, and it keeps your body warm," said Arturo Miranda, a Canadian diver. "You want to be able to keep your body temperature very high, so your muscles are ready to go."
OK, that makes sense.  But why do they insist on filming all the divers taking showers?  I mean, I'm all for it but how is no one offended by it?

Paramount's Rain of Madness Mockumentary Trailer

"Before the thunder… comes the madness. If you're a true film buff, you should be familiar with a documentary titled Hearts of Darkness about the making of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now. Paramount has just unleashed their killer marketing tactic for Tropic Thunder - a mockumentary titled Rain of Madness about the making of the film that completely mimics Hearts of Darkness. I'm going to completely admit that hot damn this looks amazing. I thought Tropic Thunder looked fantastic and now they throw this out there?! The summer is definitely not over yet! As far as I can tell, this is literally a complete documentary about the making of the movie that they're making within Tropic Thunder that I'm guessing will be available online. This is absolutely brilliant - bravo Paramount! Be sure to catch this trailer."
