Okay, I like the Daily Show and all, but... seriously? I think he's good at interviewing for a person who's primary job is comedian, but I don't think he's the reincarnation of Edward R. Murrow. What the article describes as a "clinical dissection" of Kathleen Sebelius was just him asking, "I don't understand why you delayed the employee mandate but not the individual mandate" like five times.

Oslo drops bid for 2022 Olympics, IOC has completely bonkers list of demands for host city

04 October 2014 - 12:29 AM

Only Beijing and Almaty, Kazakhstan are left in the bidding process.

Here's a partial list of what the IOC is demanding of a host city:
  • They demand to meet the king prior to the opening ceremony. Afterwards, there shall be a cocktail reception.
  • Drinks shall be paid for by the Royal Palace or the local organizing committee.
  • Separate lanes should be created on all roads where IOC members will travel, which are not to be used by regular people or public transportation.
  • A welcome greeting from the local Olympic boss and the hotel manager should be presented in IOC members’ rooms, along with fruit and cakes of the season. (Seasonal fruit in Oslo in February is a challenge…)
  • The hotel bar at their hotel should extend its hours “extra late” and the minibars must stock Coke products.
  • The IOC president shall be welcomed ceremoniously on the runway when he arrives.
  • The IOC members should have separate entrances and exits to and from the airport.
  • During the opening and closing ceremonies a fully stocked bar shall be available. During competition days, wine and beer will do at the stadium lounge.
  • IOC members shall be greeted with a smile when arriving at their hotel.
  • Meeting rooms shall be kept at exactly 20 degrees Celsius at all times.
  • The hot food offered in the lounges at venues should be replaced at regular intervals, as IOC members might “risk” having to eat several meals at the same lounge during the Olympics.
  • All furniture should be OL-shaped and have Olympic Appearance.
