The regime has committed crimes against humanity. Has a human rights record that is absolutely disgraceful. Threatens an entire region with its childish rhetoric, and constant nuclear missle tests. Starves and keeps down its own citizens. Diplomacy? You really think they want diplomacy? The only thing they want is attention and not only did they get it, they got good attention and recognition out of this! You must be kidding trying to conflate Trump with that regime. Come on.
Wait are we talking about North Korea or the US?!?

Childish Regime- Check
Human rights abuse- Check
Crimes against humanity- Check
Nuclear missile tests- Check

Ive been watching bbc coverage for about 2 hours. 1hr45 just chatting, 15 minutes showing a replay of our bronze. Are they not allowed to show much live stuff? Doesnt make any sense to me at all.
Do they not have a few red button channels up this time? Although last time around it was pretty much just wall to wall curling. Thankfully Eurosport has a more varied spread of coverage.

A country banned from the olympics due to steroid use and had a few athletes sue to get in claiming they werent part of it, has one of those said athletes juicing up. Color me shocked:rolleyes:

His excuse: a teammate who wasnt allowed to go to the olympics spiked his drink at the pre olympics training camp:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Imagine taking steroids for curling:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

i've only been watching the alpine skiing and speed skating.

Missus is Dutch and she is obsessed with speed skating, as most of Holland seems to be,

Exactly my first thought as well
What are the benefits o_O There aren't any drugs that I know of that can improve "aiming" curling stones.

How gutting must it be to set an Olympic Record, in your home country ... And see it beaten by one hundredth of a second.

Well, that happened in the 500m men's speed skating today. Håvard Lorentzen from my home town Bergen, Norway pipping Cha Min-kyu to gold by the smallest possible margin. :whistle:

And it's the first ever winter olympic gold medalist from "rainy" Bergen.

I hate to be that guy, but watching BBC's coverage is like sitting in a Costa Coffee, next to some of those 'lunch with the girls' types.
