I'm so so sad that Boston's bid was shot down. Really.
I saw that report, holy shit. its fucken amazing what large countries are dumping into their streams, rivers and oceans.
None of their promises to the Olympic committee to secure that bid are going to be met.
Where are they gonna hide the slums?
They've been bulldozed for infrastructure.
I bet they will go off as smoothly as Sochi did.
I really cant believe that brazil is known for its tourist and beaches and they are so totally polluted with raw sewage that most are off limits...wtf? usa are the only adults on the planet.
My mom is trying to get us to go there for the Olympics. She and my sister went all over Brazil a couple of years back and my mom was enthralled with everything, even the poverty. She's totally convinced these people want to live in the gigantic shanty town in Rio, and that they enjoy it.
They were there with my sister's exchange student family from when she was in high school so they had native Brazilians with them at all times. She wants us to go by ourselves, what a maroon!
the report said that as soon as you get off the plane you are blasted with the stench of raw sewage.
That might as well be Phoenix right now.
I think the deal was brazil was spose to build 8 sewage treatment plants, they built one I think and its not done and the rest wont be built. raw sewage runs through open ditches right through the athletes housing which it does through the rest of brazil also. they said the water events athletes will be sick, boaters, sailors, triathletes etc etc. and its in the air so the mist will do you in also. wtf?????????
I think our entire rowing team already contracted hepatitis
They say the locals either die in childhood or build enough immunity to survive... outsiders are fucked
Can't wait for John Oliver to go apeshit on this
My mom's an old lady and she came back from Rio alive.
I know I couldn't believe what I was reading, I thought it was the onion, I am still shocked at what a total shithole that country is. they got grants and low interest loans from Europe and or Israel 20yrs ago to build water & sewer infrastructure and they spent the money elsewhere. the scientists who were monitoring the water and sewer said there was no difference in water quality after the money was spent and 3rd world disease is rampant.
and you're correct, the visitors will be fucked. the report said the amount of illness the visitors will contract will depend on your immune system..jfc
she's used to your shit
