Not to mention the costs and security for these things is way out of control. It seems that more people than not in the hosts cities for these things do not want them there. All this corruption and waste centered around games for what really amount to a hobby is ridiculous. Particularly these days when so many struggle to make ends meet.

Personally, I think the money would be much better spent if used in the space program.

There's a number of things the money that's used towards the games could go towards. I saw pictures last night of the big opening ceremony, and all I could think was "wow, if there's ever a case of the haves and the have nots, it's the olympics".

I'm not adverse to having them, but how many millions did that cost, just for last night? Vaccines, medical research, assisting those that need food or housing, the list goes on and on. And they're shooting massive fireworks and recreating harry potter! Whoo!
