    Are the IOC or China the bigger pieces of shit?

    Really is IOC any different than FIFA or FIA? They all want spectacles and spectacles cost $ and they will just abide to whoever willing to pay.

    I normally enjoy the winter olympics. The Biathlon and Nordic skiing are my thing, and I don't even know why. Hockey is going to be awful, and it's normally pretty bad.

    I'll have to take your word on the FIFA thing. Soccer is terrible.

    Honest question, because I know nothing. Is Taiwan a real independent country, or is it more like a fake one like hong kong used to be, and actually just another chinese province?

    It’s a real independent country that China likes to pretend it has a ROFR on that the US says “no you don’t we will see you in court (battlefield) over it”

    Everyone but China thinks Taiwan is independent. Because China are a bunch of assholes.

    See Also: Crimea.

    Unlike HK/Macau, it was never official European colonies with a lease aggreement. And was lost to Japan around 1900.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrea...hina_to_Taiwan

    Japanese won it in a war and lost it around WW2. But the ambiguity of San Francisco treaty make it a contention if Taiwan is independent or not. Chinese civil war resumes after Japanese's defeat and the loser relocated to Taiwan.

    And here we are.

    The parallel to Ukraine is uncanny but has a way longer history.
