Vancouver may lose credit rating over Olympic village situation. Vancouver Sun
I hate to be the one to bring this up Vancouver, but remember how some of us voted YES to hosting the Olympics? I guess we screwed up.
I don't want to sound like an elitist cock, but next time somebody tries to get you to support something that they claim will be the best party ever, and that it won't cost as much as you might think, and in fact might actually make tonnes of money in the end, just remember the time they gave you an American Express Card in university.
It's not necessarily that anyone was trying to deceive us. It's just that they get that Olympic fever in them, get all hopped up on the awesomeness of the whole thing, and don't thinking things through. Now we're getting the shaft for nigh a billion dollars, getting calls from a collection agency, and our credit cards probably won't work.
Oh, and ultimately we kind of look like a bunch of assholes who don't know what we're doing, which I thought was at least a big part of the exercise in the first place - the looking like we know what we're doing part, not the asshole part.
