    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.

    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!

    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 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
