Apocalympics 2016 - non-sports thread

Post by row101 » Fri Aug 05, 2016 10:55 am

Sports thread HERE

This thread is for discussion of the ceremonies and the various other non-sports issues surrounding the Olympics in Rio, such as the Zika virus, terrorism, crime, and the Russian doping scandal.

The opening ceremony begins tonight at 12AM BST and runs until 4AM. Is anyone else planning on watching?

But... I haven't said anything yet. I made a thread to discuss the various issues surrounding the Olympics. I do hope all goes well.

Hell, I wanted somewhere to discuss the opening ceremony away from Reddit.

A non sports olympics thread is a perfectly fine thing to have, but calling it Apocalympics when you are known for creating sensationalist news threads was probably not the best move in having it go smoothly. That said, the insults aren't cool WLAS.

I probably won't be watching the opening ceremony anyway, gonna be playing some overcooked.

I had never heard of that game but I just googled it and it looks fun

On topic, all the buildings and facilities that I have seen look really good, however the sewage laden water does not and I would not like to be in the water
