I’d only go to the summer Olympics because I prefer those sports. They were held in my country in 2000 and I couldn’t afford to go then, even though it was the next state over!

I would like to go, if i can afford it at the time.  One of my relatives is currently in path to earn a spot on the senior team. So if he makes he’ll be going for Brazil.

No. I’m just not that interested in it and i think it would be way too crowded there for me to handle!

It wouldn’t be the “danger” of security that would keep me away even if I wanted to go, it would be their treatment of their LGBT citizens.

In fact, there’s a few places I’d love to visit in Russia, but not a moment before their treatment of their LGBT citizens has changed.

Has anyone seen this? Apparently they have hired a private company to kill stray dogs prior to the games, labeling them biological trash. There are signs the dogs are simply being poisoned instead of humanely euthanized (which would be bad enough).
