I can't for the life of me think of what was going on in the Olympic committee's heads when they made this decision. Japan must have really sold them a good line, assuring them their mess would be cleaned up by then.

Haha! Good luck to them...and to all of the athletes training and competing there. I know I shouldn't laugh but they'll soon have to add a new category and call it the Mutan-lympics!

Good luck with that. All the Olympic athletes will probably be coming home with radiation related illnesses.

Looks like radiation beats terror attacks. Why does anyone want tbe Olympics? All the studies show that it has never helped a local economy. Who says sports fans are dumb? What?
