    So the opening ceremony.... I approve.

    For me, the main points were the drumming section with the good few thousand drummers, the lime-green LED-covered guys who did the Dove shape before swirling together; the globe and columns rising out of the ground, and of course the torch-lighting ceremony, truly the most spectacular (or just excessive) means of doing so yet.

    Some parts were a bit wtf-y, like the use of children in the classroom, I really didn't see the significance.

    Discuss.

    2014 if the news is anything to go by. Britain sucks at keeping things within any kind of budget or deadline.

    Why would you spoil it?!?  They aren't showing the opening ceremony in the US for another 6 hours.  Atleast I know it will be entertaining. 

    Oh, and lets go Chicago for 2016!!

    Nope, NBC has exclussive coverage of the olympics, so I have to watch it when they say I get to watch it!

    It will consist of the Red Arrows flying over a building site with a sign on the side saying "We apologise for the delay".

    Quite frankly I think the Dome would make a much better stadium for the opening ceremony than the new one.

    Yea if you want the world to laugh at you.  And maybe you can get Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin to design the opening ceremonies Smiley Smiley Smiley

    Jokes aside, I just saw on wikipedia that the dome will actually be the venue for badminton, basketball and gymnastics.

    I was thinking we should host eurovision 2012 and use that for the opening ceremony?

    Now that I approve of.

    The rifle shooting event should be on at the same time and have the singers as the targets. Netting Cliff Richards automatically gives you Gold.
