i suggest using the same portable Olympics every 4 yrs - and only bankers will compete

"In spite of all this [building] recycling, the London Games are set to become the most over-budgeted Games since 1996 and the most expensive Games yet, costing $14.8 billion, Time reported. No matter what austerity measures officials claim they'll take, Time and the Atlantic argue that hosting the Games is generally a bad bet for cities, financially. That probably matters little, however, as it seems to be a bet that cities find difficult to turn down." - London Olympic Buildings Designed to Disappear Afterward

Olympic Games

I find the nationalism of the Games to be overly distracting and more than a little bit high schoolish.

What else could account for the dismal performance of the Chinese men's gymnastics team. Some of the greatest athletes in the world rolling around like rodeo clowns

Re: Olympic Games

that's funny

i feel alienated from them - the pomp of the queens birthday was a little surreal - and so were the Olympic closing ceremonies of 2008

even if my TV worked, i am too ill to watch TV anyway lately

so i don't know if you mean the chinese gymnasts of 2008 or 2012 - but i'm sure you are quiet right

in contrast to stark realities and looming threats, i see the same high-schoolishness of nationalism more and more too, in general
