There is only one stray dog in Russia that needs to be put down.

Vector R: In all seriousness, we need to set up permanent locations to rotate the Olympic games to, so we don't see these sorts of horrible atrocities. From homeless and poor people being thrown out in Rio and China to critters being needlessly slaughtered for no good reason, these are high costs being paid which could be easily avoided. Not to mention the tremendous costs involved with building completely new complexes in random places every year.

Here's the thing you have to understand about the Olympics. . . they're more analogous to weddings than sporting events.

The hosting country really isn't in the least bit interested in the actual sports.  They load up on the more obcure events to avoid looking embarrassed, and there's the rub.  This is about looks, the appearance of a fantasy, reality be damned.  And like the worst Bridezilla you pray you never have the misfortune to encounter, there is nothing -- NOTHING -- the host country will stop at to prevent everything from being absolutely perfect.  It's been that way since well before I was born.  It's fun to think of the most Godwin-y example and the glorious epic win that was Jesse PWNs, but every Olympics has its share of controversy where the country basically creates an alternative reality bubble within itself at any cost to merely convince the rest of the world that things aren't nearly as shiatty as everyone already damn well knows them to be.

Russia's stray dogs are infamous the world over.  Killing them will make things look cleaner, but girl, you a biatch and once you're all done with your Bridezilla shiat and have that "perfect" wedding you've always wanted, the only person you'll have fooled is yourself.

LoneWolf343: Ah, the usual string of "Olympic city is gradually turned into a dystopia while the world looks on an applauds" stories. Word of advice: if your city is ever slotted to host the Olympics, move away. If you have to sell everything and hitchhike, do it.

Brother Wolf know of which he speaks.   Norton, KS was a virtual Eden before the summer games of '76.
