BBC News 24 has an "Olympic countdown" thing.

It's currently standing at 1431:08:35:05.
This is just silly.

Yeah, someone was standing in front of a huge version on the news on Sunday. I bet it'll break down in a couple of years time.

Actually, the whole handover ceremony on our side was completely naff, from the double decker bus transformer (which just looked like the bombed 7/7 bus, presumably unintentionally), to Beckham kicking a football into the crowd, then the 'party for the olympics' where for some reason they mainly interviewed indie bands about sport, and carried out all the interviews right in front of the main stage while bands were playing.

However, I've not seen many people look as happy as the guy that caught that football.

And now you mention it, the bus did look rather unfortunately like that. I didn't think of that.

I enjoy the olympics. But I think I will go space mad if the level of coverage for 2012 continues unabated for the next 4 years.

Me too. They keep showing that "this is what the building work will look like over the next 4 years, at high speed" segment over and over and over again. Interviews from the building site. Constant bloody interviews from the building site.

Just build the damned thing, the camera crews are probably in the way.

Some people really live for the Olympics.

4 years of this. 4 years.

I may go become a pirate.

Being a panda would be cool. Or a pampered cat, I'd like to be a pampered cat.
