Most of that is justified with what the world is coming to nowadays but seriously? Anti-aircraft guns on RESIDENTIAL buildings?! That's just a poor choice of location.

I'm looking forward to being able to watch the sports that I want to for once- 24 dedicated channels from the BBC, not to mention wall to wall coverage on the website, so I can sit back and enjoy water polo, cycling and badminton for the first week without being bored to tears by the swimming (and the inevitable Phelps love-fest).

After that first week I disappear to the opposite side of the world, so I'll miss the majority of it. I can't say I am overly disappointed, and that from a real sport fan. There are too many boring sports mixed in with the exciting ones to keep me completely glued to the event as a whole.

So, who will be the last one to carry the flame? I really hope for Eddie The Eagle. No one deserves this more than him!

Yes, I know. Eddie doesn't have anything to do with summer games and he carried the flame on Vancouver already. But come one. He's MOST FAMOUS BRITISH SPORTSMAN OF ALL FUCKING TIME!

The Olympics is a bunch of bullshit. You should all feel bad for watching it.

Also this because London is fucked up.

I know I'll watch some of it. By the way, there is some contest going on for a very valuable LEGO olympics minifigures that will only be selling in Great Britain during the olympics. They are near mint condition and will be given out at the end of august.

I'm serious, legos can go for tons of money. There is this one set that was 200 dollars two years ago that got cancelled and now sells for 700 dollars on ebay.

The olympics is just a bigger, more glorified, more expensive version of your typical school sports day.

Anyone who went to school in Britain knows that sports day was a waste of fucking time, and just an excuse/opportunity for the bottom 10% of each class to show off how great they were at lifting things and putting them down again.

You're watching morons exhaust themselves for the amusement of the middle and upper classes.

2/10 would not bang.

You honestly think any lower/working class families can afford to go and watch the olympics? Or get the time off work to watch it on TV?

Time off work? Man, we are talking about "lower classes" here. No "working time" for them.

The Olympics are and have always been completely overpriced, overcrowded and overblown in every way. But I could say that about sports in general. At the very least, I'm glad that NYC lost the bid for this year's summer Olympics--otherwise it would have been even more of a nightmare for me just to get around. I still have to feel sorry for most Londoners and other people who live nearby that don't care about any of this.

I don't know my history, but there seems to be a very multi-ethnic society in the pre-industrial revolutionary England. And they're all... equal citizens? This doesn't sound like the xenophobic England I know. Not one bit.

Yeah, that's what I thought. They displayed the "Women's suffrage", so why not display the political equalty of all ethnics as well?

You're a bunch of bastards, NBC.

it certainly is a large stadium compared to the size of the bird cage last year

and look... the queen looks pissed and bored... again...

i also see that the brits used the same idea as the previous games, to separate the people into groups via a people wall

i would have liked to see a few fans that blow air so that the of the different nations and places seem to stand at attention... like the british royal guard.. instead of simply just drooping like they do
