I think that it’s adorable that plucky little Russia is hosting the Olympics, really.

I know that a lot of people are mocking them for their pretensions along those lines, but you have to remember: Second World nations like Russia have a ceiling for expectations, as it were.  You simply have to take that ceiling into account.  They certainly mean well, or at least they mean something…

    2nd?! The horror stories being reported from twitter makes it sound like a 3rd world counry over there! No wonder people are dying of alcohol poisoning, would you drink the water over there?! Bob Costas was there five minutes and he got pink eye! The Sochi Olympics has been a complete disaster! The terrorists over there don’t have to lift a finger, because I will bet anyone my weight in gold that someone will die over the horrible conditions over there!

    Maybe we could call this the asterisk Olympics.

    Why does it seem that the more the flaws are pointed out, the stronger Putin will get?

    Actually I was thinking that if the person in charge of the rings was an Obama govt official, they’d be looking forward to a big fat promotion. And that took the fun out of it for me. He never gets rid of anyone for incompetence

      Well, seeing as how the man himself is the anthropomorphic personification of the Dunning-Kruger Effect…

    I feel sorry for the guy who f-ed that up. He’s probably dead now, or at least doing hard labor in Siberia.
