Possibility to have 4 medals by the end of Saturday is pretty encouraging.

Incorrect.

Men's Slopestyle: 2 got a bye to the finals, 2 only qualified for the semis
Women's Slopestyle: 1 got a bye, the other is going to the semis

All four Canadian women advance to the final in moguls. We're also second in team figure skating behind Russia.

I stopped at "team figure skating"

Which sounds strange just in itself.

Are the Oilers a demonstration sport at the Olympics?

Late to the thread,but might as well point it out.

If you look at the picture with the non divided toilet, you can see that the divider was removed. Theres a line right where the divider should be which indicates to me that it wasnt installed properly/stud isn't there and therefore it would just fall off.

Same thing happened at my work place, no stud for the divider to attach onto and the divider just started sliding off. Had to bring in contractors to install a stud into the wall then reinstall the divider.

And for the toilet paper in garbage bins, in most parts of asia (and especially south east asia), they don't even have toilet paper nor toilet seats. You get a hole in the ground that can flush, and a water hose to wash your bottoms. I figure Sochi is a more countryside type part of Russia that is very poor and along those levels. Eastern europe also has similar things.

Everybody is just spoiled by the standard that is North America and Western Europe, but athletes from poorer areas of the world will find that it is same old.

Yeah, that plays a part as well.

Yeah by losing one, they're basically losing both.

No idea what the chances are, I assume pretty slim, but it would be incredible for those three Canadian sisters to sweep the podium in women's moguls!

Actually, pretty high. We got 2 snowboarders in the mens final that could finish anywhere from 1-4th spot, even though 4th you get no medal, but I think we could walk away with at LEAST 2-3 medals Saturday as my guess.
