Oh Canada.

Let's be honest y'all, we never really thought "luging" was super butch anyway right? It sounds lik

A lot of people get mad when you mix "politics with sports" but come on, the actual act of living is political. The choices you make to buy a product and read a newspaper are political. The clothes you wear, the music you listen to, the food you eat... it's all political. So when you hold a massive event where foreign countries compete against each other, it's going to be... you got it, POLITICAL. Especially when it's hosted by a regime as shady and corrupt as Putin's Russia. The Olympics in Sochi should not be written off as a mere sporting event, like your nephew's kick ball match. This is an opportunity to look at humanity as a whole, and the high ideals to which we can aspire.

Click the video below to get a horrifying glimpse into "life" in Russia, but only if you want to ruin the rest of your day.
