Chicago Lost: Five Reasons Why | NBC Chicago
#1 is all I have to say.
Word. Having spent a decent amount of time in Chicago you can just feel the corruption. Honestly, it permeates everything there.
wah wah wah, no olympics for america ever again.. why? because we suck ass and africa is richer than we are. america is walmart.. and who wants to have the olympics in walmart?
we americans need to suck it up and stop consuming and start producing. maybe then we can be something aspiring to host the olympics ever again.
LOL! New sig...
Yup, Chicago is a sewer. there are so many better cities in America that would have been a better representation of our best. Portland would have donw nicely, but the money isn't there.
I feel about as bad about this as when a sports team I'm slightly familiar with in the Superbowl loses, I really don't care at the end of the day. We have far more important issues to worry about in the US other than whether we get to once again host a budget busting sporting event.
On another note, maybe it's just me, but perhaps too much importance is placed on hosting the Olympics and the prestige for whatever country hosts it. I mean sure we are, at a great financial cost, doing something truly meaningful like pioneering space exploration and pushing the boundaries of human knowledge and discovery through our ongoing expedition on Mars via rovers which we control ~35+ million miles away, but we didn't get to host the 2016 Olympics so we stink.
My dad takes an RV to Bears games, he was paying $120 to get into the lot. If you wanted a good spot, you had to "tip" the parking attendants $300. I am in the wrong profession.
Rio is 100x more corrupt than Chicago will ever be :X
Don't get me wrong, it is probably the most beautiful city in the world, but that city has some SERIOUS problems.
I'm still conteplating if I want to move to Chicago since I work out there or just move to a area that's a bit closer to the tollway just so I can get to work faster.
I still like Chicago. So, FU, bitches!
If you work in the city and live anywhere that has a "tollway" you aren't getting to work fast at all.
Well yeah, it's just like Cancun. That place is crooked as fuck, but as long as you stay on the right side of the crooks it's an awesome place. The nuisances related to the corruption you eventually get used to.
Well I mean, if I can get closer to the tollway, it'd be faster. It takes me about 20-30 minutes to get on the tollway and then it takes me an hour or so to get to work.
At least it's not as bad as Venezuela!
holy fuck son. you need to be looking to move or get a different job. That is 3 hours of your life wasted, every day.
