    Japan Olympics

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    The Summer Olympics have only been cancelled three times; in 1916, 1940, and 1944.

    Oddly the 1940 games were to be held in Tokyo, Japan.

    Indeed. And according to History*, the war didn't even start for another eighteen months.

    Meanwhile dopers are quite upset as this just increases their chances of getting caught. Sprinters are the most upset.
