  1. What if you saw 50 women run up and down the Sambodromo in nothing but two-piece swimsuits? A gold-medal winning marathon runner commits suicide and I apologise for being driven off-topic in this forum. I also apologise for his death occurring.
  2. I am normal, and I can oppose any breakage of tradition I want.
  3. Why? It's the real Olympic Stadium and the real Olympic Stadium needs the ceremonies. End of discussion.
  4. i'm not against the Maracana. It had have a very advanced-looking design for the time it was built (1950). After its grand transformation, it will host more football matches for year to come, including those for the 2014 WC and the 2016 Olympics. But the Joao Havelange needs to host the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Olympics instead of Maracana.
  5. Stop using the god-awful word seems, it's going to traumatise me, and I can't be strong enough to fight intentional bullying in discussion forums. From now on use the word appears instead. What part of "STOP" do you understand? I could put you on my ignore list for this intentional behavior.
  6. "Looks"--not seems--"Looks". And did I notice that a several-lane boulevard in Beijing's Olympic Green have been converted into green space (its a east-west road). And on Google imagery, I have noticed that several temporary venues (such as the hockey field and the beach volleyball ground) are still standing now after the Olympics have ended?
  7. You're still using it. I mean it, sir, stop your use of the awful word or I will lie around Copacabana Beach for 12 straight hours.
  8. Okay, sir, can I ask you to please STOP using the word "seems" in any form? Because that is going to keep getting on my nerves, and I ain't havin' that. and Penn & Teller are gonna keep showing up.
  9. It's the curse of Maracana, which it the stadium that will devalue the status of "Olympic Main Stadium" if it hosts the ceremonies instead of Engenhao.
  10. Psychiatrist, I don't like it when the word "seem" is used against me, especially intentionally; it does nothing but get on my nerves. You could have used a better synonym.
  11. The posts were not idiotic. i am sad now because of the marathon winner's death. But I don't like the way you act when you respond to the posts.
  12. I'll pin that on the Sambodromo, seeing as the Marathon will finished there and not at the Engenhao Stadium. Curses are bad.
  13. Rio 2016 set up a bad omen: The marathon winner at Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics, Samuel Wanjiru, committed suicide when he fell from a balcony because of a domestic dispute.
  14. As shown in the masterplan, a six-lane highway is to be built between the Barra and Deodoro clusters before the Summer Olympics.
  15. Good, cause over time doubts will be cast over Maracana hosting Olympic ceremonies. And the west stands of the Sambodromo are probably being torn down right now as part of a renovation project.
  16. Who cares about the quality? I don't want to get used to the idea, and I can't, because Olympic ceremonies need to be held at the Olympic Stadium like always. And I don't want to rally against PyeongChang because I'm actually supporting its bid for 2018 Winter Games.
  17. I don't want a hobby. All I care about is the Parade of Nations, the Athletes Oath, and the lighting of the Olympic Flame must take place at the Engenhao olympic Stadium.
  18. Just because a popular football-only stadium stadium is an icon to a certain country doesn't mean they have to be the designated Olympic Main Stadium.
  19. Wut why can't Engenhao host the Olympic ceremonies?
  20. There was a large number of empty seats at Maracana Stadium during the 2007 Pan Am Games closing ceremony. So why can Maracana Stadium host Olympic ceremonies? Or why can't Engenhao Stadium host Olympic Ceremonies?
  21. I don't like the phrase "seem to be", it isn't good enough. Couldn't you have tried "you are the only one that is so obsessed with it."? The Engenhao, instead of the Maracana, can be the main centrepiece stadium of the 2016 Summer Olympics.
  22. ^^No, that issue will be a big one. One question: Is Maracana an Olympic Stadium or not, or is it even considered one?
  23. If a sexy lady were thrown to the piranhas, that would be considered murder/manslaughter. Now, about the capacity disparity between the Olympic Stadium and the football only stadium. In Barcelona, the disparity was 45,000 (70000 capacity in the Montjuic Stadium and 115,000 in the Camp Nou). In Rio, the disparity will be only 22,000 (60,000 in the Engenhao Stadium and 82,000 in Maracana). Now, if you want to hear something about the designated Olympic Stadium not hosting ceremonies, that will be one of many concerns and controversies that will be faced. An Olympics will not be without concerns and controversies nowadays.
  24. Once the old buildings on the same block as the Joao Havelange Stadium are torn down, there may be enough space for the performers, costumes, props, the 10,000+ athletes, and the fireworks parapharnelia. Also, neiher Maracana nor the Joao Havelange have any underground passages. Why does an Olympic Stadium need underground passages.
