No. Just no. The last and only time I tried eating one of those things I threw it away after 2 bites, they're so sickly sweet artificial tasting it's unbelievable. Brian Cassella has zero taste.

As a parent I just can't imagine the grief and anger they must be going through. These are people responsible for little lives and they failed big time. Why cant they just count the kids on to the bus and count them off? Shocking incompetence.

There are more holes in The Olympic village bubble than swiss cheese. Anyone who knows someone working there will tell you that.

Been there. They're pretty cool but definitely not worth going just for them as they aren't very deep. The cave and tunnels on the far side of Enoshima are better.

I don't watch it and I won't get excited about it. I can't get over the sheer exorbitant cost of it, it's a total disgrace.

For the people wondering how she didn't wake up when it happened...

Isn't it possible she was drunk...? It would also explain why she might forget to lock her door.

Let's keep the attention on the sicko who thinks this is the way to show his "affection" for a woman.

Still can't get over how many dudes here think like that.

Totally. I've woken up after a big night out with my front door wide open still.

The United Kingdom never should have handed over Hong Kong to China in 1997.

"Oh, but they had an agreement!"

Bull. That agreement was made by the British in 1898 with the Qing Dynasty -- an entirely different entity from Communist China.

The U.S started pressuring Britain to hand HK back after WW2 but Britain refused. It finally started serious negotiations about what to do in the early 1980s.

Japan usually does well in the medals at first but the golds especially tend to drop away when things like track n field heat up.

The other thing being is that the wrong conversation is being had. There's too much talk about the right to protest at the games, sexism in sport and all that stuff. The real conversation should be about the spending scandal that accompanies every single games now. Politicians put their countries forward because they know they can line their own and their buddies pockets BIG TIME. Voters should not accept it any longer.

“We are in such a special moment in historical terms that it’s very important to renew the Olympic Games,”

Now should be the time that The Olympics in it's current format is ended. It's too big, too expensive and too intrusive on the host nations citizens. It has to end.

That the corps are propping up a greedy, selfish, probably corrupt organisation like the IOC is not a surprise but they need to face the consequences. I'm so anti-IOC now I would probably start to spend my money away from these brands.

In an interview Saturday, Wang accused the U.S. of adopting a superior attitude and using its strength to pressure other countries.

China, you are wrong. Shame on you!

The US does not have such bold leadership.

Oh it absolutely does. They're now just doing things the professional way rather than on Twitter....

Also, many women ogle over the male athletes bodies so this is double standards.

There is definitely a global conservative push going on behind the scenes. I don't like it, we should be more free, not censoring ourselves. The athletes should also be able to wear what they feel comfortable in.

British Behaviour has gone very low these days. Nowadays the world don't see them as 'Ladies & Gentlemen', rather hooligans, chavs, beeches.

There you go again, how is that a relevant comment?

Posted in: Australia to deport British commentator Hopkins for quarantine breach boast See in context

I actually do not think she was deported for flouting quarantine rules or directly because of what she said. She threatened to break the rules but was there actually any evidence that she did break the rules? As a result of her stupidity, her work contract was cancelled which surely would've invalidated her visa, leading to a deportation. That's my view of it anyway....

There are now so many independent pizza shops around Tokyo the price of pizza averages around 1,000yen I reckon. Heck even if you do use one of the big delivery places they always have offers on so it doesn't work out pricey.
