Probably best if you have a few cities rotate as host cities allowing the use of the same venues multiple times. First World countries only. Third world nations have no business dumping billions into stadiums when they have starving people and no infrastructure.

Nice!
Yea we will. As I said before FBI and DHS take control of the police force there for some time before the games through the Paralympics

I was thinking California would've seceded by then. 03-wink

RE: L.A Wins Summer Olympics Bid
Los Angeles likes to think of itself as the host of the last really successful Olympics. 1984 worked really well. The venues were mostly good, traffic was remarkably light, there were really no significant failures. (I worked an event to raise money for my school's aquatics program.) And the games were managed by Peter Ueberroth, who really understood how to run a large and complex operation. I don't expect that this time around. LA won't spend the kind of money the last few hosts have, but it'll still spend too much and it won't take as much in as projected. That said, it won't be a disaster like Brazil or Sochi, so we've got that going for us.

I'm torn on whether to leave town or stay and go see some events. Hopefully I can figure a way to move by then and not have to make a decision.

After the infrastructure/safety/zika/clean water debacle in Brazil I don't blame them for going back to first world nations lol.

LA is technicallly in a first world nation. If we can get calizuela to exit it wont be.
