Every last person associated with the place would have been fired if that happened there. It's one thing for a backyard pool to turn green, but a professionally run swim center - it's just unbelievable.

    Michael Phelps is so disgustingly ugly.

    The swimmers bodies are the best part of summer Olympics, in my opinion. It's like women's volleyball for the men. I'm totally not ashamed to admit it either. Plus, they are all super tall, which I like.

    Poor women swimmers just look bulky. I'm so proud of Simone Manuel. There is a serious lack of diversity in US Swimming, her win is massive.

    I watched the women's 400m dash that Allyson Felix ran; the runner from the Bahamas ended up winning after she basically dove over the finish line. I don't think that's fair at all, if you're running a race, you should run over the finish line, not dive into and over it...

    The Bahamian was leading anyway and stumbled, from what I could tell. I don't think she tried to go all Supergirl five metres from the line.

    I hated to see Simone stumble on the beam but was so happy that Laurie Hernandez won silver.

    I saw that. I can't decide if she dove or not. I remember it was so close the announcer thought the other girl won.

    In more Rio Olympics Shitty Planning news: Panic! At the Rio: Olympic Vendors Are Running Out of Food | FWx

    Olympic athletes must have gold medal appetites, because reports of vendor food shortages are coming in from Rio.
    According to the Sydney Morning Herald, various food outlets have either run out of most food (and beer!) or closed down due to a lack of stock. In fact, some unlucky patrons have faced hour-long lines, only to reach the counter and be told that supplies were completely sold out.

    Can you imagine telling the family of a Judo Olympian that their next meal can be found at the condiment station? That just might warrant a roundhouse kick to the head.
    The news follows on the heels of other highly-publicized issues, like the the diving pool turning an unwelcome green and hundreds of empty seats (probably because everyone is waiting in line at McDonald’s).
    Get it together, Rio. Hell hath no fury like a hungry person scorned.

    In positive news, I am finding out that Jamaica can really put together catchy fast food commercials. I'm trying to catch and record a Burger King one that is positively HYPNOTIZING me into wanting a whopper, which I haven't had or missed in 15 years.

    But here's a KFC one that's good too

    I know it's dumb since they're horses and don't care but I think it's too bad that they don't get medals too when they help win for dressage and jumping, they only go to humans. Hopefully they get a nice treat at least!
