Will they cancel the Olympics due to tiny head babies?
>The Olympics to be hosted at Brazil
>In the same year the Zika Virus is spreading amongs south America
Surely this is a coincidence, it would be a shame if the many millions going to Brazil get the virus and return to their home countries with it
Yeah, they will return to their countries and then what?
It's not like they have the mosquito to transmit it, or that this disease is super dangerous or something (it kind of is to the pregnant woman, but I don't think a lot of them will come to Brazil 2bh)
It can be transmitted sexually you know, also the mosquitos can be found in tropical and warm climates that's most of the southern hemisphere +the southern parts of the northern Hemisphere
Who said anything about tourists? What I meant is that the govt is going to spend millions for something that is basically an european circlejerk because "WE WUZ ANCIENT GREEKS N SHIT" while right now we need to cut shit and have a very conservative economic policy.
But they will cancel them because they're struggling to build the Olympic infrastructure in time for the games.
>But they will cancel them because they're struggling to build the Olympic infrastructure in time for the games.
No they aren't
You're crazy if you think the Olympics are revenue positive for any but the most touristy cities.
The Olympics are going to lose you a lot of money, but you might as well get as much back from tourism as you can since you've already spent billions. No going back now.
>Oi ya knobhead, get back to work
Are you going to actually make any meaningful comment or just repeat what I said in some sorry excuse for banter?
Anyway, see you in 10 months after you realize that the politicians stole all the cash and the general population didn't see any return of their investment!
Indeed, we should risk infecting a whole generation of world-class athletes and thousands upon thousands of tourists with an incurable virus just because we don't want to let 15 billion "go to waste".
Zika is just a mild Dengue with some possible bad effects to a possible child a woman infected may have
It's not like it will kill them, or stop them from competing
And it'll be in the winter, when the mosquito is less active
They didn't cancel the London Olympics for having fucked up teeth, why would they cancel Rio for fucked up heads?
Literally nobody cares about this humanist "think of the foreigners!" shit, besides, our country's international reputation is already destroyed so not like it's going to matter.
If anything the govt should let the americans handle the vaccine and let the epidemic run its course, it's making the lower classes scared of having childen and it is giving a big push for the pro-choice side of the abortion debate, we should be thanking the mosquito really.
What matters though is that those 15 billion could've gone to fixing our economy but alas, what is done is done.
