Alpine skiing at the 2010 Winter Olympics was held at Whistler Creekside in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The ten events were scheduled for February 13–27; weather delayed the first event, the men's downhill, two days until Monday, February 15.

Medal table

Notably absent from the medals in these Olympics were the Austrian men, who had won 8 medals in 2006 and 7 in 2002. France and host Canada were shut out from the podium, as were the German men and the Swiss and Italian women. The U.S. had its best Olympics ever with eight alpine medals, only the fourth nation to achieve that total in a single Olympics (Austria, France, Switzerland).

Individually, three men and five women won multiple medals; triple medalists were Bode Miller of the U.S. and Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who both won a medal of each color. The sole double gold medalist was Maria Riesch of Germany.

Rioters and anarchists are not the same thing. Edgy teens label themselves as anarchists and misunderstand the meaning.

Dear anarquists, if you want a country with no goverment, go to Somalia. Then come back and tell me how fantastic it is living there.

I'm not an anarchist, but there's a lot more to anarchism than that. Somalia has a government but in reality is largely ruled by warlords and terrorists that use coercive force to keep power- something any anarchist would be strongly against. There is such thing as an ideal "anarchist society" (paradoxical as it may sound), and Somalia is not it.

Of course, not all people who call themselves "anarchists" understand the political philosophy of anarchism. Some of them are just edgy 8th graders.

People misunderstand anarchism, mostly because of it's name and ways 'anarchy' is used in media.

Anarchy in the popular sense is chaos - this is not what you are seeing in the picture however. This is what you think what you are seeing, but there is a little more thought into it than that.

Now, Anarchy or lets say the most popular strains of the movement, propagate grass-roots democracy, egalitarianism and liberalism. Is that a bad thing?
Is the idea that people are equal, free and have a right to choose what system they like and how to organize themselves bad? No. However, in order to achieve this kind of "reset" of system, the current one has to go.

Now how will it go is where the anarchists are divided. Some put faith in evolution and that everything will get better on its own. Some see the fact that the current system is artificially kept in position by the few that benefit from it and can use police, media and consumerism to keep up the status quo. This is a unjust and cruel system for majority of the people, and thus anarchists try to protest it and get rid of it and replace it with either collectivism, mutual aid, equality and socialism, or whatever the given community will want in place of what we have now.

Then there are people who are ****** their whole lives, just feel ******* helpless, know what is making them feel this way, but are unable to do anything about it, that's why they break inside and start breaking the symbols of the current system, banks, mcdonalds restaurants, starbucks, all those places for them are nothing more than symbol of inequality and oppression, and then everyone is judging them for breaking a few windows when the people in charge have been on a long rampage of breaking people.

These people know about anarchism, however what's pictured is not anarchism.

Anarchists have, throughout history, generally been peaceful, if a little optimistic. They (most) believe that humans are inherently good and do not need a government. Do I believe in their viewpoint? No, but I'd much prefer the actual viewpoint than this propaganda.

I have a lot of anarcho-capitalist friends, and none of them are like this. They're simply against the abuse of central power, the coercion of laws that the citizen does not consent to, and extortion backed by threats of imprisonment and violence that people prefer to call "taxes."

Rather than anarchism, it can be described as voluntarism or polycentrism, where all interactions are voluntary and not monitored by the state.

Just a concept.

"I believe that all other political states are in fact variations or outgrowths of a basic state of anarchy; after all, when you mention the idea of anarchy to most people they will tell you what a bad idea it is because the biggest gang would just take over. Which is pretty much how I see contemporary society. We live in a badly developed anarchist situation in which the biggest gang has taken over and have declared that it is not an anarchist situation – that it is a capitalist or a communist situation. But I tend to think that anarchy is the most natural form of politics for a human being to actually practice."

Those aren't anarchists, those are rioters.   
Also, you can have a government and still have an anarchistic society.
