I'm not die hard but I enjoy most of the Olympics. Skiing + shooting = Wut?

Men's hockey, women's figure skating and crashes on snow and ice are the only things worth watching in the winter olympics.

If you don't watch Curling you're missing out.

Not flushing toilet paper is not that uncommon outside of the US. I've been to Mexico City a number of times for work and you couldn't flush toilet paper at the office bathroom.

Yeah, but the facilities here are brand new. They very well could have installed a plumbing system that can handle toilet paper.

I just found out there's another sport worth watching. Snowboarding terrain park is now an olympic event. This is the event Shaun White just pulled out of. Hell I've spent time watching this in the middle of a day snowboarding. I love watching insane people at work. Except for my kid, I had to stop watching him at about 13. That was our "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" family policy.
