What's been your favorite Sochi Fail so far?

There's been a great list to choose from:  The $50 billion budget, the hotels being unfinished, the athlete hotels only giving twin sized beds, vast amounts of stray dogs, the opening ceremony ring glitch.....the public double toilet?

My favorite so far is US Bobsledder J. Quinn being trapped in his hotel bathroom, so he smashed through the middle of it lol.  Just go to Twitter and type #SochiProblems , too many laughs

All of this should not be happening. It is ridiculous how they are not even ready to host them and they have already started. Also, have you heard about how Russia is now apparently spying on everyone and hacking their phones?

Forever strong.

Here you go: http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2014/02/07/nbc-news-takes-heat-over-sochi-phone-hacking-report/
EDIT: Not exactly hacking, just take a look at the article. It is more like privacy concerns. It is apparently just NBC News saying this.

Forever strong.

Things like the ring not opening can be funny, but the poor conditions the participants are living in are not funny at all. Sad

An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable.

Yes, I am American.  There is no doubt the Olympics have had some funny fails so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if they happened at every Olympics (including Atlanta not too long ago).  I wasn't by any means trying to rag on Russia in general, just the failure to be prepared for a $50+ billion Olympic event that had 7 years to be made.

The pic of the broken bathroom door is worth seeing, looks like the guy did it with his bare hands.

I don't believe in US/ EU propaganda. So far, Sochi 2014 has been way better than the last Olympics.

RT is not only biased toward Russia (is eastern propaganda okay for you?), but this video didn't report anything, it just pointed out politics for what it is: ugly.
