    Scandinavia isn’t a good example of socialism working because none of the Scandinavian countries are socialist...

    There are a lot of centrist Democrats in the senate. And I’m not just talking about Manchin and Sinema. Sanders would not be able to get 50, let alone 60, votes for the more extreme aspects if his agenda.
     
    Trump signed well over 2T in COVID-19 relief into law. Does that make him a Communist? Is Germany a communist country because they don’t have college tuition? Communism and Socialism isn’t just synonymous for any political position you don’t like.

    Communist Poland was, of course, famously on the vanguard of LGBT rights.

    All Calgary world cups are canceled, and Calgary won’t host the non-Cross world championship for freestyle skiing and snowboarding.

    Yeah because nothing says “freedom” like conservatives bending over backwards to join Trump’s cult of personality, and then defend it for four years.

    The one thing that deeply irritates me is that it will all depend on one match. Why can't they just have another round-robin with the Top4 teams? That would be by far the best way to decide the last two spots.

    Lukashenko proposal :
     
    During a personal meeting with Fasel, Lukashenko said that despite the protests, Belarus is a safe country. He compared the situation to what was happening in the USA, where supporters of president Donald Trump attacked the Capitol and it resulted in four casualties.
     
    "In our country, protesters and otherwise dissatisfied people do not violently attack government buildings. In Belarus, the situation is quite normal from the perspective of the development of democratic processes," Lukashenko said and offered Fasel the opportunity to organize the entire tournament only in Belarus without  Latvia. On the sidelines, he said that this would be the best world championship ever.

    This is such a poor take, and that “joke” at the end is in extremely poor taste.

    On the bright side, your federation did send a guy who actually survived this start.

    I think the animated pictograms will be a big improvement over the still pictograms for broadcasts.

    I really like the animated version of the pictograms.

    I like the animated pictograms done by both Tokyo and Beijing. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind if animated pictograms became the new norm (with still versions still available of course).

    What was funny was that the English-language ES commentators had just been talking about how the Russian skiers always worked well as a team, unlike the Norwegians etc who were always competing against each other.

    So I emailed Taekwondo Canada asking if Yong was given a quota. They are not even aware this is the procedure if there is an extra slot lol. They are now getting in touch with WT about it.

    Sweden's Nils van der Poel was a very promising 10k rider 3-4 years ago, but since he won the 10k at the world allround championships in March 2018 he didn't compete in any serious race anymore (he did run a 171km ultramarathon in under 21 hours, it's not like he was lazy ). 
     
    Today he made his comeback in Inzell.....destroying his 10k PB by nearly 20 seconds to 12:46, only five guys have ever been faster
     
    He is back and the 10k keeps on getting more and more interesting!

    This is very reasonable. The whole “super final” concept was always really confusing. Either the 3000m should be run as a standalone distance or it should be eliminated.
     
    Why does that coach have such a hate-on for the 3000m Steeplechase which is, once again, the best race on the track?
