Cancel this year's olympics. And as compensation for the cancellation, give Brazil gold medals in everything this year.

I feel sorry for those that put in years of training for the Olympics. Frankly I would be afraid to go.

These countries are war zones, and they use unarmed tourists for prey.

It's time to end these International Sexfests...

"With 10,500 athletes set to compete this summer, that’s 42 condoms a piece, which means athletes would have to be getting busy more than twice a day to use them all. "

And the best thing the Rio organizers can say about it was "maybe we should put a jumping kangaroo outside the Australian building to make them happy".

No, maybe having toilets that flush without water running down the walls, beds that fit the people staying in 'em,power that actually turns on without added water to dodge etc,etc,etc would be a better idea?
