Everybody is in a state of shock

Chicago failing to cinch the summer 2016 Olympics sent the entire freaking universe into a state of shock. Industry stopped, stock markets collapsed, the earth's crust shifted ten feet to the right. It was, in fact, the most shocking thing to happen since hammer pants became the ultimate in chic.

Chicago: Get over yourselves. America, too. The United States has hosted 8 Olympic games - Brazil? Nada. South America? Zilch.

August happens to be winter for Brazil and Rio de Janeiro has a similar seasonal pattern as California - a wet season and a dry season. We like to keep it real simple, us Californians and Rio de Janeiroeons. Although it sounds like their winters are like 70-80 F. Nice!

Plus: Chicago view v. Rio de Janeiro view <--- Yes, please!

That's exactly what I was thinking.

I wish the Olympics would just go away* already.

*only because I think it's too big now for any city to responsibly handle, not because I hate super jocks

I actually like the olympics. There's just something cool about it, even if it's highly commercialized and perhaps pointless in the grand scheme of things.

Well, guess I won't be inviting you to my OLYMPIC VEGAN NACHO CHIP PIZZA ICE CREAM BONANZA!

I haven't watched the past few olympics, and I was kinda hoping to be able to do so in 2016 when i'll be like really old and shit.

OMG we're going to be so old in 2016!

I do like to watch the Olympics, I just think that the "cleaning up" of host cities by harming every inconveniently located being in sight is not worth the importance of the event itself.

GIVE ME OLYMPIC SIZED NACHOS PLEASE!
