In a speech to counter act Willard Romney's bad mannarded statement about the London 2012 Olympics the mayor of London at a recent reception was quoted as saying.
“I think we can hold the greatest Olympics that has ever been held.”
He predicted “the Geiger counter of Olympo-mania that has been spreading through the city in the last couple of days will go zoing off the scale”.
Why use words "Geiger counter" that is just so odd and a bit spooky!
With all the predictions of false-flag event or a terrorist attack these words could be prophetic. With nearly 4 billion people watching it would be a tragic event that would be viewed by more than half the world population. Although I am not sure if anything will happen at the opening and closing ceremonies, I did feel this was a strange enough quote and thought I would post about it. Do you think anything will happen?
If nothing happens then I hope for lots of medals for my country! Mods if this is in the wrong forum please feel free to move it, although I did do a search and found nothing on this news.edit on 27-7-2012 by abeverage because: spelling

Boris Johnson is an upper class twit, and a twat, and talks utter and complete nonsense most of the time.
With all due respect I think you are reading far more into this than is there.

The Mayor Of London Boris Johnson is an eccentric.
Read and enjoy:-
but there was mention of Radioactive material buried under the Olympic stadium... Which for a big enough explosion could be spread!
Flibbertigibbet is a Middle English word referring to a flighty or whimsical person, usually a young woman. In modern use, it is used as a slang term, especially in Yorkshire, for a gossipy or overly talkative person.
Its origin is in a meaningless representation of chattering.
 It does not always apply to females, however; it has also been used to describe Jiminy Cricket due to his whimsical, chatty nature.
This word also has a historical use as a name for a fiend, devil or spirit. In Shakespeare's King Lear (IV, i (1605)), he is one of the five fiends Edgar (in the posture of a beggar, Tom o' Bedlam) claimed was possessing him. Shakespeare got the name from Samuel Harsnett's Declaration of Egregious Popish Impostures (1603), where one reads of 40 fiends, which Jesuits cast out and among which was Fliberdigibbet, described as one of "foure deuils of the round, or Morrice, whom Sara in her fits, tuned together, in measure and sweet cadence."
