  1. Congratulations, Portugal! Also thank you France for this Euro. It's been fun.

  2. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35730041 Another reminder that the IOC dodged a very deadly bullet back in 2013.
  3. Are we living now in an era where its cool to hate the Olympics? I want to give a round of applause to Sochi and the infamous list of demands to Oslo by Bach. You guys made this possible. Way to go, idiots.

      I think that if we have a round of successful, financially stable games in 2024/2026 to show contrast to what we've seen up to today, there will be a boost of confidence in bidding. It all still depends on how the Asian Trio handle the next eight years...

      I think Sochi just highlighted what many of us ignored. That the Olympics are extremely expensive and an unnecessary expense. I'm not going to say that the world is changing and we are facing bigger problems then we did during the cold war etc but following Sochi nations and it's citizens are saying "do we want to spend $15 billion on a 2 week event or do we care about healthcare and the important issues facing the world.

  4. You might have the money, Beijing, but you lack the heart. You have 7 years to make me change my mind about it.

      I think the Chinese people shouldn't be underestimated though. For example, they were fantastic at supporting the Paralympics.

      What exactly is this "heart" you talk about?

      He means ~PASSION~ doesn't live there.

  5. Congratulations Serbia on winning the U-20 World Cup.

  6. Ding dong the Blatt is dead

  7. **** Football. That is all.

  8. Sometimes I wish Oslo didn't resigned....then I remember the circus the Olympics have become, and I'm glad for them.

  9. Dear god the earthquake in Nepal. I pray for all the victims of this tragedy.

  10. 100 years ago, a hideous act against the basic rights of human beings was perpetrated against the Armenian population, which would later inspire Hitler to commit his own Genocide. You're not alone, Hayastan. The people of the world stands with you.

      we're getting to 100 years of so many horrors of the 20th century...

      Indeed. The Armenian genocide was the first of many others (Jewish, Bangla, Bosnia, etc.). I dream for a day people stop hating each other for their ethnicity and understand we were all born the same.

  11. Why the Turkey government is in denial so much with the Armenian Genocide issue when there is a lot of evidence which proves that it indeed happened?

      Because examining their own historical injustices would make it impossible for them to lecture the West.

  12. Russian opossition leader has been shot to death. Get ready for a lot of **** to happen on the next days in Russia, everyone.

  13. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/06/pope-slovakia-referendum_n_6630876.html I've lost all my respect to Pope Francis now. I guess I was naive to expect that stupid bunch of senile old men stuck in the middle ages would ever be tolerant towards other sexualities.

      Well, one thing is being tolerant with homosexuality and other very different is accepting gay marriage.

      Anyway, I don't care about the pope's opinion in anything. He can say whatever he wants for all I care.

      From the beginning the media either twisted or mis-translated everything the man said. He is a bit more liberal, but he was never going to be what the media wanted or made him out to be. The honeymoon s over.

  14. A student in my university was found stabbed to death yesterday inside a classroom. Crime rate in our country is rocketing and the Castro lackeys who govern us won't do anything about it.

  15. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has just died at age 90. He will be the last king to have been a direct descendant of the first king, Ibn Saud

      Ikarus, I've tried to message you today - your inbox is full. Could you clear your inbox and get back to me asap? Thanks!

      Ikarus, ALL Saudi kings are descendants of Ibn Saud including the new one. They have to be by law. No-one outside the family can succeed to the throne.

      The King is dead. Long live the King.

  16. Great, another topic about the Paris shootings which will have to be locked due to certains user here acting like little kids. What has become of GB.

      well if we all be cool...it wont.

  17. http://t.co/dv1NvW83JR They've found the culprits behind the Charlie Hebdo attack (
  18. Definitely the cuban community in America is not going to be happy at all with this

    1. Alexjc

      They never are...If you go right back to the 1950s, most are decendants of Batista's equally dodgy reigeme.

      I read though that the younger generations are more liberal and open to agreements with Cuban government.

      I anticipate an angry salsa from Gloria Estefan in the near future...

  19. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30478321 Worrying news. And the worst is that it were thousands, not just hundreds.
  20. Thai prince divorces for the third time while the king is ailing at the hospital. Seeing all the crap happening with the royals i'm not surprised the military took over to assure people don't rebel against their future "beloved king"

  21. Today we will know who will suceed Fuleco as the target of national lampoon in Brazil.

    1. Victor Mata

      Victor Mata

      Rumours say the possible names are Tom and Vinicius.

    2. Ikarus360

      Ikarus360

      Well, the mascot got a better reception than Fuleco for what I heard. But i can't help to think their style pretty much reflects what kids like today (Adventure Time for example)

    3. Victor Mata

      Victor Mata

      TONS of great jokes about the names, though. ^^

  22. A synagogue got attacked in Jerusalem, killing 4. *sigh* and here we go again

      Gotta get ourselves on the front of the news cycle every three months don't we Israel?

      Same would be said of Palestine. :/

      Oh yeah, swings and roundabouts!

  23. Watch the Central American and Caribbean games opening here. http://www.veracruzanos.info. So far it's not bad, nice projections. Better than Incheon. XD

  24. The political situation in Mexico is so screwed up the Central American and Caribbean Games opening seats were bought by government employes in order to avoid boos (in fact Peña Nieto won't even attend).

      A macabre coincidence to Tlatetolco in 1968.

    2. Ikarus360

      Ikarus360

      Indeed. They turned the opening ceremony onto a private corporate event now with this. Also the organization of the CAACG has made Delhi look like the best CWG ever.

  25. It's official. Sochi is for the WOG what Montreal was for the SOG.

      When you think about it that's very true
