    Well that's the thing. NZ/AS and ASCE standards outline bare minimum levels for building design, when that is just not safe in most areas. The argument at the royal commission to the collapse of the CTV building revolves around whether or not the building met minimum code standards of the time, not whether or not it was designed to be a safe building. Unfortunately the legal requirement is just to design to the code, regardless of whether or not it is safe. A paradigm shift in civil engineering is required.

    You guys need to actually think about what sport as a whole provides. You are too narrow minded and only see "oh its a dude running", it is much much more than that.

    50% of the British team are from public schools, which, as the term may confuse, costs a ton of money and are usually for the highly intelligent. So maybe its just a failing of your countries, but the British team are not in that category.

    My word, you guys arent helping the gamer stereotype one bit.

    On a separate note, I take my hat off to the American basketball team. They have really soaked in all that the olympics have got, Kobe has been watching tons of other events, I thought he would be really elitist and only care about his own, but wow.

    Why would you want to watch your character get shot by a corrupt US General when you can watch him get eviscerated by an eight-foot alien in purple body armour?

    He's probably totally psyched that he's at the Olympics and wants to really take the moments in.

    i did say it helps bring people together, unfortunately it also has the opposite effect on many occasions - fuck, look at english football fans. i think the olympics as an actual thing is important and can do good but i think the parts are a lot less valuable than the whole, if that makes sense

    i appreciate that people want to compete and be good at stuff, i have nothing against sport in that regard. i just think it gets way too much attention these days, especially on more localised levels where it has comparatively little benefit to the wider community.

    My word, you guys arent helping the gamer stereotype one bit.
    i honestly don't care, stereotypes are stupid and i'm not going to pretend to care about something i don't just so idiots won't judge me

    I guess I should feel bad about watching porn and masturbating for my own enjoyment...Since it doesn't help my community or country get anywhere.

    The difference is that you masturbating doesn't cost billions and billions of dollars. If you were to, say, erect a masturbating stadium to host the world's top masturbators, to participate in a world-wide masturbating competition, then you should feel bad. Because after you and the other elite masturbators are done masturbating, you'll realize what you have left is a giant steel monument to your own idolized opulence which drew a few tourists to one area for a few months, and will never make up for the investment you put into it.

    tl;dr: Construct a permanent Olympic stadium somewhere (why not Greece?), and stop making the worst biennial financial decision ever.
