After reading the better thread covering opening ceremony I have no idea what the op is bragging about.Sounds silly and not worth watching by the sounds of it.

pffffft actually from a personal perspective, i thought it was a bunch of cringe worthy #e (so far).
I'm not hopeful that this twee wander down britains national memory lane is ever going to do us justice in what should be a world class event.

And why the hell are the military involved in raising the flag on what should be the greatest ambassador to world peace.
Hardly respectful of the spirit of the olympics.
So what if they are there providing security, if they weren't would they have allowed the CEO of G4S to raise the flag instead?.

OK, I take back what I said about the UK being a country. Apparently it's a country that just doesn't make any sense, since it's composed of 4 other separate countries.



BTW - I'm from the US. I just like what little I've heard of the Netherlands, as well as some other choice nations.

I assume you're being sarcastic but they are playing trance music! It's nice.

Just to let you know, most British people are quite modest people.

There's always one though...

What a crock of crock, real culture came from the 2008 opening ceremony, this is a load of junk some kid threw together last minute and played dizzy rascal to. Seriously, when that came on, i lol'd and turned off the TV, what a joke and an embarrassment for the world.

Your using the internet ...made by a British man!

Nonsense! Leonard Kleinrock IS an American!


The UK would have fought to the end not like the rest of Europe...The US jumped in and tried to grab glory .....sad really.

The truth is that the UK wouldn't have been able to fight long without US assistance.


The UK rules ...the rest of the world looks at us and wishes they had half of our culture, history and grit

Not true! We fought a war in defiance of your "culture, history and grit".

That said, I can understand you patting yourself on the back. There sure as hell isn't going to be anyone else doing it.

See ya,
Milt
