Russia has aimed to impress with the Sochi Olympics. There are certain areas where Sochi has come short of course, but they’ve also put that little extra touch into some of their projects to give these Winter Games a great sense of style.

Take the Bolshoy Ice Dome for example and its roof that doubles as a scoreboard. There are plenty of easy ways to get that kind of information, sure, but if you’re walking down the streets of Sochi, then it makes for quite a site:

    That’s sick. Surely could’ve allowed for bathroom stall dividers for the entire nation, or the funding of control for the stray animals but hey, that’s a sweet calling card too.

    I’d drop a deuce next to someone to see that, maybe once, pending the girth of the other dude.

    putin’s anti-gay olympics will always be remember for that iconic flaming penis torch.

    Stepanup- there are times in a mans life where “dump-doubles” are on the menu, and what better venue for a tandem download than one with fire on the roof. It is so fitting.

    Stall doors missing a problem? More like facilitation for good friends.

    Somewhere in Arlington, TX, Jerry Jones is looking up at his Jumbotron and throwing a tantrum.

    You think Jerry Jones lives in Arlington?

      Is it possible he has to be in Arlington to look up and see the Jumbotron?
      Is it possible govtminion never said say that’s where he lives?
