At this rate, I'm pretty sure North Korea and South Korea will be in a nuclear war in 2018, and Tokyo will find its opening ceremonies in 2020 marred by the emergence of Godzilla.

Lead-up horror stories have now become the norm in the Olympics and World Cup, as giving these events to the wrong places continues. It really needs to stop.

Nah, Godzilla will be dead by the opening ceremony....no doubt a victim of the widespread dysentery epidemic that will inundate the encampment housing all the imported "employees" hired to erect the main stadium.

For that to happen the WC and IOC would have to be not corrupt. Good luck with all that.

I think there are (non-corrupt) members of the IOC and FIFA that honestly believe they are helping out these countries by giving them these large-scale events.

That's about as likely as the "leaders" of these third world countries (or any country, for that matter) figuring out what a big scam that hosting these events actually is.

Here's a water "quality" update, and the news isn't good for the participants. The IOC might require some extra bribe money to look the other way on this one.

 

Slate: Rio Olympic Events Will Be Held in Water That Is “Basically Raw Sewage”


 

Athletes in next year's Summer Olympics here will be swimming and boating in waters so contaminated with human feces that they risk becoming violently ill and unable to compete in the games, an Associated Press investigation has found.

I mean...that kind of crap can't be completely cleaned up within a year, right? To the levels where people can swim and boat in it without getting a disease?

I think they'd need to install area-wide sewer systems *and* sewage-treatment systems first... which would take a while...

Baltimore has a decent, if aging, sewer and storm-water system, has been trying to clean the harbor for 30 years, and has never had it look that bad in the first place. Still, would you want to swim in the harbor right now?

Right. So RDJ is going to at least lose out on that part of the games.

 

They have to.

 

Pretty ironic if you ask me...the IOC is full of shit so the harbor where the games are going to take place aught to be too.

The crazy thing is that while they test for bacteria in the water (which wasn't at a healthy level anyway) the IOC has no requirements at all for virus levels, which can be just as harmful.

Depends on what kind of fish are there... are alive fish there?

I just hope people who think we don't need the EPA see this... because this is what you'd get...
