The only excitement I have from this literal shitshow is the amount of crime and disease that has already begun to spread (sorry to be that guy)

It's fine I was that guy in the OP.

Giant sporting tournaments are proven to be super terrible for the country that runs them overall.

This will never happen, but I would love to see the breakdown of this Olympics for "people who watch for the athletics" versus "people who are watching for the shitshow". It's telling that if ISIS decided to bomb the proceedings you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference.

That said, I almost have to respect the brazenness of the IOC: they've found a way for worthless venal European nobility to leech off of poor countries, except instead of putting everyone in de-facto slavery and cutting off the hands of anyone who resists they've ginned up a way to get said countries to pay them for the ass-reaming.

I actually like the Olympics, it's literally the only event that makes me interested in sports.

Okay seriously, why do I keep hearing Imperial March in the background? Is Darth Vader competing or is that just the new national anthem for like the Germans or somebody?

I like how in a wholesome article about Pokemon, they suddenly and without warning drop a statistic about 450,000 condoms being available for Olympic athletes.

In fairness I wouldn't be too worried about finding Squirtles if I was in the literal fuckfest that is the Olympic Village.

Olympics were so cool! Went over to a friend's house and basically lived there watching it while I didn't have cable and internet.

Shoutout to water polo, basketball, and volleyball (indoor and beach) for being the most entertaining events IMO.
