The Olympics - 2016/08/22
So, the Olympics have been going on for a while now, but I've found something about myself while they've been going on. I hate them. Ever since these Olympics started all I've seen on my favorite news sites (which start to diminish as they become a festival of clickbait articles featuring Donald Trump) turn into nothing more than more clickbait but instead about sports competitions, and it's not even limited to the sports section! If these were all limited to sports sections then I would be fine, I just never visit that area anyways, but I get onto the news site and the first damn thing I see is that the country to which the site belongs has won a medal in some sport or another. I don't care.

So this basically means I have a whole entire month of waiting for all these shitty articles about athletes who win shiny circles of three different medals as the country from which they come from believes it is a great victory for 'them', even though no one else in that country did anything to help that happen (except maybe look at all these articles, creating ad revenue, which helps make the Olympics more popular, but that's about it). Every time their country gets a medal it's always "We won this!" or "We won that!" when in reality it was only the athlete that won anything, not any of you.

In general I see the Olympics as being nothing more than a huge event where rich nations get the jerk off to getting a bunch of medals in all these sports while poor nations, who do not have the resources to put so much money into investigation for this stupid event, have to watch as their athletes get beat again and again by the rich nations who are all in a circle jerk over who has the best athlete, making it obviously an unfair game. The only ones that are fair are sports like running, and even those can have tricks up their sleeves.

So yeah, I hate the Olympics. Do I care if others want to watch it and shit? No, just keep that shit limited to the sports section of the newspaper!!! You don't see science and technology articles leaking out into the sports sections, do you?
