It's so overcast.
The fake clouds they have floating INSIDE the arena caught me off guard for a minute.

What was THAT supposed to be!? The guy gets in a circular structure and the lights begin to move around him... creepy UFO symbolism?

Is the Olympics to teach us to compete with each other? To divide us and make us compete against our fellow man instead of working together? Is the Olympics Games to divide and inspire the slaves, and make them into better slaves?

Why is it that in these times of economic crisis the Olympics Games hasn't been cancelled, somehow as if by magic an incredible sum of money appears...shouldn't Greece get that money? In Greece they've got Engineering Graduates picking litter which they then exchange for food stamps.

Somethings not right here!


You make many good points (except maybe about Greece). It seems there's always money for HAARP's, Large Hadron Colliders, Military Expansion, Olympic Games - but never money for food and shelter for people, or stopping all wars and pollution, and other problems. Never a penny for those things - as if they are somehow much less important..

Interesting that you should mention "magic". I was curious about what the olympic ceremony was like, and whether anything disastrous happened yet, so I bumped into this article about it:

www.bbc.co.uk...

I noticed that the word "magic" was mentioned not once, but at least twice (if not more, I didn't read it very thoroughly). I also noticed the word "hell" mentioned, etc.

Then there was a mention of the Big Ben ringing it's bell for three (3) minutes, which hasn't happened since King George the sixth (6th) died.

So there was a ritual (ringing the bell, which is probably a very low in tune, bringing a specific 'vibe') that was last used at the time of DEATH...

..of king GEORGE (we all know that 'George' is another name for the devil), the VI - sixth. There is the number 6 again. They really love that number, don't they?

And three minutes.. they really love the number three. And so on.

Just a small article, and yet all these things jump into the viewer's face.


Then there's this bit:


and New Order fit the sparkle of the stadium and lift the mood.


Sparkle of the stadium? What is that supposed to mean? "New Order..lift the mood"? Like the mood was so down, people needed someone to lift it for them..?

New Order? Can you get any more blatant than that?


The ceremony also celebrated the National Health Service by featuring a cast of 1,200 volunteers recruited from hospitals all over the country


This seems to be military-lingo - RECRUITED from hospitals? Maybe it's my lack of understanding of the english language, but how do you 'recruit' volunteers? Isn't that a contradiction in terms - an oxymoron? It's like "even if you are free, you are -recruited-, so actually you have no choice".

Well, maybe I misunderstood that one.


As the show, said to be a quirky take on British life, began, its artistic director Danny Boyle pledged a ceremony with a theme of "this is for everyone"


Why would it be QUIRKY? Who needs 'quirks' in an olympic event? Wouldn't that basically mean that they are mocking the British life?

"This is for everyone"? As in you have no choice again..? Maybe I am reading too much into it, but something really rebels in me agains that sentiment - "This is for everyone"? What does that really mean? Why not say "Everyone can enjoy it", or something more 'free' like that - why use those exact words, as if no one can escape it, and no one has a choice whether they want to accept it or not? A coincidence?

But basically that says that : "A quirky take of British life is for everyone" .. like "This is how you shall live from now on"..


The chairman of London 2012, Lord Coe, earlier told the BBC he was "as excited as hell"


A LORD talks about HELL, in the context of EXCITEMENT? This can't be just a coincidence anymore. Why would any civilized human being say something like that? Who compares 'excitement' to 'hell'? Isn't hell supposed to be a place of torment and eternal misery? So he's actually tormented and in misery? Or he thinks tormenting and creating misery is exciting?


The flame's trip around the UK ends with the lighting of the cauldron


This is my ignorance, but I was shocked to realize that it's actually called a "cauldron".. as in something a witch would use. Hardly very epic 'olympic' thing in my opinion. You could call it anything but a 'cauldron'...

Well, I won't go on, but it's interesting how these seemingly little things happen again and again and jump to the eyes until it really starts to boggle the mind.

I mean, when you ask 'why', and you can't come up with a rational and sensible answer beyond the 'Illuminati conspiracy', it can be quite a bugger.

That was some good info. To be honest...i turned off the opening ceremonies. It was rather boring. I wonder what the closing ceremonies will be like?

I'm a little disappointed that more people didn't give some input. But then again, someone made a thread for the opening ceremonies. So, my efforts to bring about a good 1st post....not exactly how i planned it. The "elite" sure know how to plan events.

What do you SEE?


I've turned on the opening on bbc-hd and to my surprise it was actually in 3d format. I have a full HD 3D projector on a 150+ inch screen, so I decided to watch the event and put on the shutters. This was the first ever 3D broadcast I've seen on it. Though it was just SBS (side by side) format, it was an excellent first. As if I had a sky-box in the stadium for myself. Breathtaking.

I am so going to enjoy the games this year.

Why was my post moved from General Conspiracies to Off Topic: Sports? Isn't the Olympics a 'general conspiracy'? How is this thread "off topic"?

Maybe cause nobody died ?
Anyway all seems went smooth, still the "please dont snap" need attention.
Why they build the stadium in such a way ? Unlike China Olympic, this one is one scary stadium.

Well....we have our 1st UPSET of the Olympic Games400 IM Swimming Results

ETA: I'd still like to know why my post was moved to "off topic": World Sports? This thread wasn't intended to be used as ESPN. Isn't the Olympics more than just "world sports". Isn't there a bit of "conspiracy" to it? I.e. The whole world is broke, and people are starving...but we have time to build elaborate themed ceremonies costing millions and millions of dollars? That's not a "conspiracy"?

There's been a lot of talk and speculating about these specific Olympic games and now, they're finally here. There will be over a billion people focused in on their favorite Olympic athletes and proudly watching their country compete; and you will be one of those eyes. EYES will be everywhere. That's what this topic is all about! What do you SEE? While you are watching the games...what do you notice? What do you feel? What is your mind like? You are the commentator, what's going on? How is the competition? The atmosphere? The energy???? Also, feel free to post pics, links, streams and videos of these Olympic games.

Not sure how my opening statement relates to World Sports? Isn't the move from General Conspiracy to World Sports...."Off Topic"? Even the picture that i used, has conspiracy written all over it. If my thread is going to stay in an "Off Topic" discussion board, please, feel free to delete the entire thread. World Sports is NOT the intent to this thread.

So.. basically your whole contribution to the discussion consists of you bragging about your home theater system hardware.

Smooth so far..

Yes indeed, the stadium looks somehow menacing, not to mention masonic.



I posted this picture in another thread also, but there are so many olympics-threads that I can't remember which one it was, so I am re-posting it here, I hope no one minds.

Nope.. If I where bragging, I would have given you the specs. I merely answered the prime question in the op. I saw the opening in 3D on a 150+inch screen like I was there. Completely on topic.

What did you see?

So, with all the security surrounding the Olympics....this happens? Someone please explain HOW someone manages to pull this off??? How do you breach security...this badly???


"She had no business to walk in with the Indian contingent and we are taking up the issue with the organizers," he said. "We don't know who she is and why she was allowed to walk in. It is a shame that she was with the athletes in the march past."

If you go to nbc.com, they are showing ALL live events streaming, so long as you have one of the listed providers. It is AWESOME. I love watching the table tennis, a.k.a. ping pong.
