Again, ingraining their rights into the constitution is just writing on a piece of paper. I doubt that much actual change has taken place.

And why sign UN declarations that are just a farce? (Oh look, Zimbabe and Syria have signed it. We must sign now, too.)

Re: Bad/Hilarious conditions at the Sochi Olympics.

The shame, the humility- when u are the host country u hide ur flaws, u put the ugly children to bed early, and u make the world forget all the bad things by making them marvel. Russia has a lot to learn from China!

This is clearly a person who has spent exactly two days outside of North America ever. I mean, of all the things in Russia, this is the most shocking? Really??

Re: Bad/Hilarious conditions at the Sochi Olympics.

These photos enthralled the Internet and they are not funny anymore because they are just some fakes and were made not in Sochi. I think people who presented these pictures as some sensation about how bad things at Sochi are just provocateurs that never visited the city and wanted to spoil the games. I came to Sochi the day before the opening (it was great by the way) and since that time I have no problems here. My hotel is not ruining, security level is higher than in Vancouver 2010 and Russians are much friendlier than some believe. All that prejudice about the Sochi Olympics is just groundless. Sometimes I think people are more interested in blackening the games instead of enjoying the competitions. Did you saw how people from different teams and countries helped each other? Uniting people is what Olympics are about, not some journalist whining about living conditions.

Re: Bad/Hilarious conditions at the Sochi Olympics.

Does this photo remind anyone of a particular GM thread?


Anyhoo, from wikipedia

Not point of my post. I was referencing that GM thread where people were making fun of an elderly lady sweeping the surfaces at an ITF tournament. Can't find the thread though.

Why not? It doesnt make the ordeal and less funny or real simply by sharing it with the world. And considering he was also stuck in the bathroom and his pic with his bathroom door broken down went viral, makes perfect sense to me that he would post it ASAP.... Dont get how thats a problem

Maybe I'm stupid and silly, but if I got stuck in elevator, I would call someone to help me and wait
