That is insane. Good to know China has that money to throw around. How about sending some of that money back to your citizens.

Holy cow, that's... insane. I can't even imagine spending that much money on anything, even if it's that huge. .... It blows my mind.

wow - if you think about the deficit over here in the US and then consider the cost of the games - you have to wonder about things. granted a lot of the $$ for the Olympics comes from endorsements - so that's got to help a bit. companies paying to have major advertising and the sort on property.
