    How much fun would it be to be a photographer of Olympic diving?

    You'd just get to sit there all day and take pictures of people looking ridiculous as they fall through the sky. The presswire is filled with such images, and the other day someone decided to have some PhotoShop fun with them.

    Diving isn't the only Olympic sport that produces great pictures. In fact, they all do.

    Here are the top 10 coolest photos from the eighth day of the Olympics.
