  1. if you can't take three and a half hours out of your life to binge read the best book ever, you're an idiot. the only reason you're so flippant is because YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK. george martin books take forever to finish and his writing isn't all that great anyway. this is where i tsk tsk you. you should stop posting in this thread and become as silent as an avox, which is a reference you prolly don't even get tsk tsk.

    YES GREAT KROW. YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND.

    *cuts off tongue*

  2. Yes I do infact... go buy them you can have them too if you can find them :-)...

    And I don't need to google anything I already have them like I said... Nobody cares about random renderings of a remodel and yes all of their venues are built because none of them are designed for sports.. .We can go put our Taekwondo in Symphony Hall..

    What's amusing is I never compared either city, I never said Bostons choices were better and I never said LA's were worse.

    This group goes silent for weeks and then I post facts and announcements and then you automatically start attacking me personally, and everything you have said in here about boston you have said verbatim about LA in their thread.

    Cool they have to build a new Airport to accommodate the Olympics, Boston's is already done. Cool they have to build an entire Public Transportation System from scratch, ours only needs to be upgraded which is already planned... That is comparing something I haven't done.

    Rather then coming after me for posting actual facts attack the ignorant people who don't even know what the bids are. Like nacre who just said Boston has to tear down the city and build or have their Stadium at Gillette which has never been in the bid just the media. Or the whootsuite who accused Boston of being inexperienced and sketchy for not releasing a public bid book when LA released theirs before they were even short listed, half the projects have lost support since and were asked by the USOC to remove all bid books and renderings from online because none of the 4 cities were supposed to publish them yet.

    There is not one file, pdf, photo that you have and I need. Guaranteed, hate all you want I havent been some upbeat BOSTON BOSTON person or everyone else sucks kinda guy so continue to ignore the facts and attack me instead of responding to the actual topic of conversation, it's par for the course on this thread since day one.

    If it's worth anything, LA trumps Boston, in a way, with the points you've mentioned. If you do some number crunching, In just 2013 alone, LAX (Los Angeles' airport) managed to board about 32.5 million passengers in total. Additionally, 16.8 million of those passengers were international travelers, and about 1.7 tons of cargo was shipped through LAX. This is mainly due to LAX being a trang trans-Pacific hub, as well as an integral hub for North America. If you look at Boston Logan's Statistics, LAX tops all by carrying at least more than double Boston's load (29m, [not in top 10], and 685k respectively). As metioned before LA also has several smaller airports that can certainly take off load out of LAX.

    In terms of public transportation, LA's Metro Rail still tops the BMTA, partially. Again, using 2013 statistics, there was 238,946,400 passenger boarding for the MBTA, significantly more than the LA Metro Rail's ridership of 114,790,200. However, the LA Metro does have the advantage when it comes to system length (which may be due to LA's spready-outy-ness). Boston has 64 miles of track, whilst LA has 87.7 miles (excluding regional rail for both cities). LA Metro also has the advantage in their BRT systems. You also seem very heavy on the fact that the MBTA "just needs upgrades". Let me just reassure you that Boston isn't unique in it's money-secured projects. LA is constructing about 5 new lines and/or extensions as well as planning another good handful of lines/extensions under planning. Aesthetically, Google Images certainly makes the LA Metro look more appealing (LA Metro // MBTA) architecturally, which is what their message is about right? (or is it diversity, same difference though). Let me also reassure you that Boston isn't the only one getting new cars as recent reports have been surfacing about LA Metro testing out their newest order of cars from Japan.

    Funny how you claim to have facts when you clearly do not even understand what the city is like on the other side of the country. I'm sorry, but I going to have to temporarily exit my Krow-adoration mode just to slap some sense into you. Although LA has proven to be able to handle more that doesn't mean they do it well. I have no personal experience with this, but the fact that LAX and LA Metro are getting seriously revamped would suggest that they are ready for a surge, or at least thinking ahead (which I'm sure Boston is doing too).

    They'll need at least 1 more arena, possibly a new Boston Garden.

    Building an entirely new arena would destroy the 4.5b budget, wouldn't it?

    Don't worry guys, if the main stadium will be temporary everything else will be too.

    Atlanta 1996 ...er... I mean Boston 2024

    If they have space for it. (I think someone mentioned it earlier, but) Boston since very compact, wouldn't the temporary facilities have some distance between them and the city center? Kinda burns the idea of "compact", doesn't it?

    (Note: Advantages in terms of statistics and numberings)

  3. P.P.S. I also wish that Krow take credit for Sir Bernham's (mr bernaham's) request for someone to do Antarctica. (Unless Krow wishes he doesn't, then in that case I shall take credit. Or if the great leader does not wish outsider views to perceive his subjects to be 'nice', then Faster shall take credit [JK. Faster never gets any credit. He don't deserve it])

    :P

    I request that all credit for this logo (including the credit for winning) goes to the great and marvelous Krow. As his loyal subject, I feel that he must expand beyond sweepstakes winning and enter the logo competition as a champion. #GoKrow #AntarcticaCity2024 #Krowtopia4ever #LONGLIVEKROW


    P.S. The changes portions of the word 'Antarctica' become the number '2024'. Aren't I.. I mean.. Krow so creative?


    *changed
