  1. Baron, I thought I said "Stop with the YouTube videos", that's part of the harassment, which is all over with. Now let's please talk about something else and get back on topic, like: the Improvement of the train station above the Maracana Stadium. and How the Maracanazinho arena doesn't need any major improvement before the 2016 Olympics?

  2. Danny, I'm sorry, I just want you to stop the "seem"-related harassment also before I go crazy. Can't you write a song about a different subject NOT containing the words that so offends me? If you can't, then don't write any songs at all. You done forgot who we all are: Olympic fans. I just wanted to visit Rio for the 2016 Games, not be driven to some sad fate several years before it. Danny, when you drive folks to harassment, you drive them towards some sad fate, and I don't want to say it, you're gonna end up getting punished for the harassment. So a note to you two: From now on, please, a thousand times please, don't write me any songs, don't show me any YouTube videos, don't even harass me with that word. Even if you stopped the harassment, I will keep what you call "campaigning" to a minimum. Face it, No person ever wants to be harassed in their lifetimes. Not even you, not even myself.

  3. For the last time, the idea of holding Olympic ceremonies outside the Olympic Stadium is silly, but a petition to put the ceremonies out of Maracana and into the Joao Havelange is not. Even if I stopped the campaigns and petitions, you're still going to harass me. I know it. The definition of harassment is:

    "Harassment covers a wide range of offensive behaviour. It is commonly understood as behaviour intended to disturb or upset, and it is characteristically repetitive."

    hate to get off-topic, but Why is it that some word I don't like, you got to repeatedly sat it and force me to act and be (mostly be) angry? This forum doesn't have a strict set of rules and regulations, especially those against harassment and bullying. There is actually a story where a teenage girl was being bullied and harassed drove her to suicide, and you don't want to drive me to such a fate, especially after repeated un-ignorable harassment and bullying, do you, sir?

  4. You're right. Only several celebrities who are diehard Olympic fans can afford 500+ room headquarters hotels for themselves to stay at during the Olympics. I may not be a celebrity, but several years ago, I joined this forum because I was an Olympic fan.

    And the Rio Olympic project updates don't really accelerate until after the London Games have been held. How is a city like Rio going to prepare itself for the Olympics in four years, much less seven? Only two years have passed, and Rio's entering its third year of preparation.

  5. Sorry, I thought you needed one room only, but as I can see your party will be big! biggrin.gif

    Here is a history of headquarters hotels since 1964:

    1964 - Hotel New Otani

    1968 - Sheraton Maria Isabel

    1972 - Sheraton Munich Arabellapark

    1976 - Le Reine Elizabeth

    (None for 1980 because of infamous boycott)

    1984 - Westin Bonaventure

    1988 - COEX InterContinental Seoul

    1992 - Hotel Princesa Sofia

    1996 - Westin Peachtree Plaza

    2000 - Marriott Sydney Harbour

    2004 - Hilton Athens (shared with the IOC)

    2008 - China World Hotel

    2012 - Millennium Gloucester

    (Remind me not to stay in the same hotel as the IOC members)

  6. Because the club owning it haven't set up a fire reconstruction plan, there are rumours going around that the Olympic rugby sevens tournament is being moved from the Sao Januario stadium to a smaller stadium. That's gonna suck eggs because a reconstruction of that venue was needed, especially for the Olympics.
