Can we all just agree to build permanent Olympic stadiums somewhere? I know it’s supposed to symbolize international cooperation and such to move them around, but in practice, the Olympics have come to symbolize “let’s find one of the few countries rich enough to support this stuff, encourage them to financially and socially trash a city, then leave behind gigantic overly-specialized sports facilities that no one will ever use again.”
Let’s just find a place that has some mountainy parts and some flat parts, is snowy in the winter and warm in the summer, and say “Okay, this is where the Olympics are going to be from now on. Everywhere else on Earth, you can stop building fuck-off enormous stadiums and kicking out all your homeless people every two years.”
Only two solutions exist: Antarctica, or the moon.
I am so excited about Moon Olympics that if I had any voice at all today I’d scream.
