No...it seems disgusting have human feces just sitting in wastebasket. That is what's on the paper after you wipe - human waste, crap, poop, whatever you call it...it has to smell terrible. I mean how long before it's emptied?

Maybe we are spoiled, I don't know. But I for one can't wait until we have "the three seashells"

I don't know how spoiled Americans are but ask yourself what happens to the mega tons of human waste and used TP here in the US of A. Oh yeah, it ends up flowing from your kitchen tap.

So no, spoiled doesn't seem to fit the bill. Polluted, maybe.

Where does their waste go?

I don't claim to know where theirs goes. Just making the point that its wise to clean up one's own doorstep before criticizing the neighbor's doorstep, especially when we're not even able to see the neighbor's doorstep other than through the eyes of known prevaricators with an agenda.

You guys were expecting something different?

There's always something to complain about, regardless what country hosts the games!

The actual reason is probably that the guys that installed the wiretaps and bugs were probably called out of retirement... so they don't work that fast. Professionalism takes time you know! Nothing but the best!

Doorknobs and curtains are just finishing touches for the maids to worry about. The water should clear up in about 2 weeks or so.

Well, my waste water gets piped to a sewage treatment plant and treated before being emptied into a river way down stream. Anything not liquified somewhere along the process is scoped out and incinerated. As to what comes out of my kitchen faucet - that's treated water from my well which is pumped from one the 2 aquifers in my area...the deeper one.

As an athlete, would you rather go without a pillow...OR...have one forcibly taken from a total stranger and given to you, "with love"?

The irony of the whole thing is NOBODY is sleeping on THOSE pillows tonight.

Do a little research on our aging waste water treatment plants, they're a lot less safe than people want to believe. But I suppose feeling safe and protected is more important than scary talk about upgrading failing infrastructure systems. What you don't know can't hurt you, right?

And remember, the guys with the nuke codes had to cheat to pass the tests, but I'm sure municipal waste water workers are held to a higher standard.

when I went to take my wastewater treatment test I was put in a room with video cameras, and I couldn't even use my own calculator or pencil even. we had 100 questions we had to answer and had to get atleast a 70% on the test to pass. Though I don't work at a wastewater plant I did take the tests and classes for it.

the classes were a joke but you did have to know what you were doing atleast somewhat competently to pass the tests.

I am fairly certain the last graphic indicates for us to not take a erm... log... from the bowl and play airplane with it.

Maybe the next time the US hosts the Olympics we can have them in Detroit. Sochi looks like paradise compared to parts of the US.

I don't know about that. Maybe the media is trying to make Russia look bad?

For what purpose? There is none. Russia has made itself look bad. It's the only country that couldn't get itself together to be able to prepare for the Olympics. It's not a third world country. But it's steeped in corruption. The news is reporting the effects of that corruption. It's something that Russia doesn't take kindly too .... truth about it's gov't. Just ask the rock band members that were tossed in jail for daring to write a negative song about Putin.

I would hope we'd be smart enough not to try to do such a thing. Russia wanted Sochi to be a future tourist destination. They brought the Olympics there to try to build it up. But instead, the corruption just exposed the mess. Lipstick on a pig.

I'm sure it does. For the $50 billion they supposedly spent, I'd hope it would look better than Detroit.
