  1. I hate to say it, but it seems Toronto's bid is starting to crumble.
  2. Whenever I see that dome though, I think of potential disaster! The flame
  3. Oh yeah...........! I wonder if they will give it to Munich though.....it would be nice..they've suffered too long!
  4. Vancouver is Canada's Sydney! I think we are looking at pics of the first city in the world to be both a summer and winter Olympics host!
  5. Would someone, anyone on games bids be so kind as to explain to me how to download (or upload) music and vidoes from youtube to an ipod or mp3 player?
  6. No....i think you may have missed my point X......I mean that they experience generally the same problems as vancouver but I was refering to the extent (ie. the statistics......the numbers). For example, what are the latest crime statistics for the city in ocmparion to another NA city its size? So odes that "small city" attitude help?
  7. I know you seem to suggest before that vancouver is a big city with a "small city attitude"but haven't you found that that has helped the city somewhat to remain relatively unspoilt and free of the mega social problems that other cities its size are experiencing?
  8. wow! It seems like such a beutiful place to be experiencing those problem and they seem to be serious. Do you think the city will sort of "change its image" by hosting these games? Or has the global economic crisis placed a considerable "dent" in the legacy that it will hope to achieve? Do yu see it crumbling further if 2010 doesn't reverse these problems?
  9. Mr.x as a city of vancouver.............what do you think are its most pressing challenges at this time?
  10. This is stunning! absolutely stunning! (I'm saying with clenched teeth envious of vancouverites!)
  11. Anther low point that I forgot to mention was the actually performance area which was a way to small for dramatic effect.
  12. Well, lets be fair and conclude that if the ceremonies were indeed terrible, the Vancouver 2010 presentation cveretainly added to it
  13. I watched the ceremonies of the Calgary Winter Olympics and I don't understand what you mean by tacky. Apart from the awful timing of the commercials, it was a rather nice and there definitly was a warmth to the proceedings. I especially found the squar dancing segment to be very colourful
  14. Yes, but what i'm wondering is whether the Taxpayers of the city will be haunted by this for a really long time
  15. Yes, the athletes don't need the ritz carlton but the people who'll be buying the condo afterwards would like to know that the space is still chic and comfortable.
  16. 'member Munich? Surely things have changed since 1972 and because of the "anybody-can-roll-over-us-sure-be-my-guest" image that Canada has comfortably established internationally, I think it's one of those rare instances where canada is trying to make a sincere effort to think ahead and to prepare for anything. We commend the effort.
  17. It isn't hard to imagine why the IOC awarded the games to vancouver. It really is a staggeringly beatutiful city! Just awesome
  18. yeah...lol....but seriously, what does this tell us about canada in general?
  19. Let's just really pray the New Dheli does it!
  20. I do recall even you Mr.X posting pics of a very nasty looking interior of the roof and complaining yourself. Will such nastiness above the heads of everyone be the emblem of these games? Judging from the posts of those who live in vancouver, it very well may be. This speaks to a grotesque lapse in foresight to invite the world under one grimey roof. Guess that's how you all do things.
  21. Vancouver is just the most stunning city in the world ( I'm saying this with clenched teeth and a forced smile) but really it is. The building's interior is elegant but the outside still sorta looks out of place and inappropriate.......like a injured airplane wing or something.
  22. It just make you wonder what IS the real deal with the roof. yes we know that every olympic host has had some sort of scaling back or change of original plans or change of the blueprint of indeed, some change somewhere or the other. Yet, vancouver is interesting because you get this weird sense that everything is not going exactly right behind the scenes.......especially as it pertains to the roof. I think and have always thought that Vancouver shall be a replica of Montreal in this and a few other regards.
  23. K.....like Faster?..............who died and made you a prostitute?
