@ossobucotemp,
Safety test to the athletes village and safety for the athletes
450 000 condomes - 42 for every sportler - will be given to the active before the games
Active in what??
From Dagens Nyheter this morning the 26th
Hela 450.000 kondomer – 42 stycken per tävlande – kommer att delas ut till de aktiva inför idrottsfesten.

@saab,
42 is a reasonable number for athletes.
The Mexican olympic health kit has only 8 condoms, and I was getting worried.
50 is a good, safe, number.

@fbaezer,
I didn't know you were an olympian. If you want more condoms, I'll send them to you. What are friends for.

@cicerone imposter,
I did have a "participation" medal and a diploma, back in '92.







As a journalist, not as an athlete Sad

@fbaezer,
I thought you are a journalist now. So, it's been ongoing since 92?

@cicerone imposter,
It's been ongoing since I was 10, and "edited" a one page paper with 4-5 carbon copies, one worse than the other.

After that, a "neighborhood paper" at 14, and "underground papers" at 15 to 19.

I was 17 the first time an article of mine was in a magazine that was actually sold at a newstand. April 1972

Professionally, since 1982. Full time, since 1989.

I was gonna post "now I send people elsewhere", but heck I did that in 1992, also. Only I sent myself to the Olympics.

In 1992, my envoy in Yugoslavia was kidnapped twice by the warring factions. Came back with a couple of great stories about his captors (who really only wanted him to give their side of the war).
