2014 Sochi Olympics: There might be surveillance cameras in your shower

Ah yes, the lovely accommodations in Sochi for the upcoming Winter Olympics. We know all about them.

But just when you think it couldn’t possibly get any worse, it does.

Dmitry Kozak, the deputy prime minister responsible for Olympic preparations has not taken kindly to Western visitors who he feels are attempting to ruin the games with their biased media coverage. Because of this, Kozak decided to explain how those visiting Sochi are attempting to sabotage the games by complaining about poor conditions and accomodations. How does he know? Because of shower surveillance video, duh.

Say what?

Dmitry Kozak, the deputy prime minister responsible for the Olympic preparations, reflected the view held among many Russian officials that some Western visitors are deliberately trying to sabotage Sochi’s big debut out of bias against Russia. “We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day,” he said. An aide then pulled a reporter away before Mr. Kozak could be questioned further on surveillance in hotel rooms. “We’re doing a tour of the media center,” the aide said.

First off, who would do that (other than to clear out the disgusting colored water)? And second, how the hell would anybody know outside of video cameras in the shower?
