I was one of the dudes in charge of setting up the Sochi Olympics and let me tell you, I bought a really freaking sweet black BMW with the scratch I made.

On The Colin Cowheard show this morning one of the reporters was saying that most motel rooms have no heating, and water that is labeled as dangerous if it touches your skin, let alone drink. Also people are reporting their rooms are being broken into.

My updated predictions for this Olympics is an over/under for terrorist attacks at 3, deaths at an over/under of 25, and Russia is made a laughingstock of the entire world. Even China laughs.

Look, I'm not exaggerating when I say the success of your mission hinges on how you use that cardboard box.

Russia is just getting us prepared for the eventuality of all these sporting events taking place in third world poo poo holes.

Isnt there a somewhat serious threat of attack? Heard on the radio awhile back that some group or other made threats and had the capacity to follow through

Because it's a cargo cult security system, not an actual security system.

There isn't any snow in Sochi this year. This isn't unusual though, it rarely snows in Sochi.

They should have the winter Olympics in places where it snows.

What about deaths from Russian police opening fire and/or gassing crowds to contain the terrorist attack?

If there is an attack obviously 1:1. If there's no attack I'd say 1:2 so it's anybody's guess, really.
