This will be just like the bad old Soviet days when you had to wait in line for 5 hours to buy a pillow...
 
2014-02-05 08:29:14 PM  
If your room doesn't include a pillow, just rest your head on one of the stray dogs.

No, yesterday was the day to wait 5 hours in line and not get a pillow. Today you can wait 5 hours in line and not get shoes.

A police man will wag his finger at you and say "You could get shot for saying that." Good news, they're out of bullets.

Between the hacking, the terrorist threats, and the state of Sochi itself, I'm left wondering if the Olympics are going to get off the ground at all.

On the plus side this will make the 96 Games in "The ATL" seem so much better

Can't wait for the ski jump to collapse, hope it's on live TV

I visited Sochi about 5 years ago.....

It was a complete crap-hole. I can't see how any one would say it should host an Olympic event. The dog thing appeared to be a constant across eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Romania, and Turkey all had TONS of dogs running around).

Other things....Hopefully the places in Sochi have decided to start taking credit cards. That was a royal pain in the ass when we were there. In the US, EVERYWHERE takes credit cards. In Sochi, NO WHERE took credit cards.

And the hotel thing in Sochi doesn't surprise me. I stayed in a hotel in Greece a few weeks before I was in Sochi. Let's just say, crappy American hotels (Motel 6 for instance) are amazing compared to the dives in some of those countries. What I paid for a not-very-good hotel (lumpy bed, leaky shower, etc) would get me into a Holiday Inn in LA/NY, which are actually damn decent. We really have it good. Our hotel chains give a nice consistency that is sorely lacking in other parts of the world.

This is what happens when you base a modern economy on graft and vodka, built on a firm foundation of Soviet style communism. What did people expect?

Perhaps we need to introduce the Sochi "Organizers" to the pillow tycoon in the video thread

If only there was some type of physical conflict to engage in as a fun way to deal with such a situation.

I was thinking the exact same thing....watch the ski jump just slide down the mountain side. If it holds up long enough, the last jumper may win because he'll jump closer to the landing spot so they fly "farther"

The general lack of preparedness has me doubting security and the safety of the sports facilities, tracks, seating, etc.

Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

I loved the old guy with the horrible forged papers that get progressively better.  You know his papers are fake but he deserves an A for effort.

The caption says "another toilet in Sochi - this time with seats for the jury." So yeah.

I spent a lot of time in Russia in the nineties. This doesn't surprise me even a little.

Soooo first they can't flush toilet paper (seriously Russia?), then there's open manhole covers along the streets, and then Mountain Dew-esque water from a tap (which you don't want to "use on your face"), and then the piss poor hotel conditions with a slew of other crap wrong with them, and now running out of pillows (and shower curtains)?

Christ Russia, all this time to get ready and you're already making a mockery of the games. God knows once it starts up we'll likely see something similar to Munich too thanks to the terrorist threats...
