  1. If Munich bids i dont see Reno shorlisted, it will be Munich, Oslo, Davos... If they dont, Reno will be shortlisted and maybe having a small chance, the IOC might want to give a reward to the USOC showing that, the revenue deal has finally solved. Nothing bad with wanting Alaska to host WOG, when ypu here Alaska you think in cold winters, when you here Reno you think of casinos... The only thing wrong with Reno is Reno... Lake Tahoe is perfect!! Reno not really for WOG....

This is just to keep you and the ones like you entertained and forget about the 50million pounds Sir Blahblahblah wasted doing the bid. How this idiot wasted so much money when Ricardo The Great Teixeira sent the WC to Brazil after using only 2m? and not a single cent was public money. Which was not the case around English FA bid... Am I wrong?

  6. Really? Somehow I don't think the Arcelormittal Orbit will become a treasured world landmark like the Eiffel Tower has... The Eiffel Tower is simple, symmetrical, understated and complex simultaneously whereas the Arcelormittal is chaotic, non-symmetrical, undefinable, and just a visual mess... ...And yay for me on my 100th post here
