Despite my initial cynicism I loved it...
Ditto. I was totally unready for the level of spectacle and thought it was breathtaking and moving. Mike Oldfield, Dizzee Rascal, and Arctic Monkeys. Genius

Re: Depends....
You just missed the opening ceremony, which was no Beijing!
Damn right - London was 100x more entertaining

Re: Depends....
the Beijing ceremony was to the London ceremony what Transformers was to Robocop
I can't disagree with that.
Transformers: a tale told by that idiot, Michael Bay, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing...
vs
Robocop: a work by that sometimes genius, Paul Verhoeven - gritty, thrilling, shocking, and moving.

Of course made no better by our humble, Mormon moron shitting the bed over there. Sorry about that. He's like our own Borat.
Hey, anything that unites the entire spectrum of the UK press is good with me

"The US space agency has just gone f'king mental."
Yep, as was I - having set the alarm early, and then couldn't get NASA TV to work
Raced downstairs, clicked about twenty different remotes to get the AV system working, then flicked news channels until found one not showing the Olympics - thank you CNN and your live feed. Just as she hit the atmosphere. Best seven minutes of recent years
