Terrible accident today in the heart of Tehran. :( I went to that building so many times.

 

R.i.p to the victims. specially firefighters :( watching pictures of firefighters (who are supposed to be tough) crying for their friends/colleagues were really heart breaking.

 

The most annoying part was those stupid people blocking roads to take pics or film with their phones so that hospital personal cant get trough with injured people. :mad:

Wow, that's a huge amount of funding (relatively) for the Paralympic skiers and for example the boccia teams! I didn't expect teams like that to be so high up the ranking..

well, they are succesfull and win medals almost everywhere :d our paralympic alpine skiers are usually counted as (between) the best in the world, we won the medal table in Vancouver 2010 alpine skiing and Sochi wasn´t any bad too...

 

The things which shocked me is why the hell they put money to basketball, why ??? well, okay the girls are decent and maybe it´s fine to support youngs but why so much, they absolutely don´t deserve it - lucky bastards :lol:

 

and football ahead of hockey is another shock..but surely because of EURO 2016 and our qualification for second round, this costed more than the debacle of our bunch of loosers last year at hockey worlds...but still surprising
