Unless of course you're Ken.
Cant imagine either, the coppers pulling abdul from his Merc People Carrier while on his way to the new mosque that will be attached to the olympic site.
As ever, climate change fundamentalists are making utterly facking stupid proposals. This time however, might just be in a position to impliment them.

And it'll be an event that will force swingeing cuts in the military to fund it.

What's better than getting a gold medal at the para-olympics.............

Yeah, and we'll lose at everything.

Can I be the first to mention ladies beach volley ball in an Olympic thread?

Oh, thank you.

Feel free to post photographs of this important sport to help illustrate this fascinating debate.

Time and again this has been shown to be utter balls. Please stop rehashing tripe.

Heed.

Working on trying to find somewhere in the World that will be an Olympic Vacuum. Plenty of time to plan it, but where to I start ?

Any ideas ?

Caveats:
Location has to be:

1. Habitable.
2. Non-Muslim 'cos beer will be required.

That's about it really. Any countries out there with-out sattelite cover and with sun or snow and bar (s) and with absolutely no fecking interest in the Olympics ? Don't care how far it is....I'll save up my pennies and get there. Remote Alaska ? Got bars, but also got TV coverage. Se what I mean ? Can't get away from the sh*te.

Betcha can't come up with a place that fits my criterion.

Why not just buy a cellar (spare room) full of booze and micowaveable foodstuffs.

Then when the "our junkies can run faster than your junkies" extravaganza gets going then you need to -

1/ Throw the telly out the window or maybe just disconnect the antenna if you want to watch DVDs.
2/ Lock the outside doors and windows.
3/ Move into spare room with booze and food stuffs
4/ Stay there for how ever long the booze lasts or until the games are over.

There you go, just saved you a fortune.

As far as I can work out, this place has a bar but no TV. Could be full of backpacking tree huggers though.

I would still have to come up for air, shower, pee etc and the house will still have Olympian devotees in it. I think that I shall get myself up to the Isle of Skye or somewhere similar and try to avoid pubs that have a TV Sat Dish.

I really do think I'm on to a loser here and the athletic substance abusers will be omnipresent for a month or so. Just bores the tits off me.

I'm pretty fit myself, I'm no couch potato and enjoy a good run, but top class sport is tarnished by loadsa dosh and, the attendant fame on the athletes often goes far beyond a "well done". Probably me being a miserable sod, but I cannot help thinking that the Olympics have been hijacked by Nike / Addidas et al.

Am I alone in thinking this ? Does anybody seriously think that UK PLC will benefit from what has all the hallmarks of being a total f*ck up?

My in-laws live in Australia. The country is STILL paying for the last Olympiad.

No, I'm sorry to be a kill joy, but the money could be better spent. I Feel sorry for the Londoners who will bear the brunt of the visitors, those who are willing to pay to come to this country for expensive food, wine, beer and shoddy service.

Still, the AQ planning cell are probably working on something right now....y'never know !

You've got me thinking, though. An island in the South Atlantic may be a bit chilly, but the beer would be cool. I suppose I would have to ship-in a supply. South Pacific sounds a bit more inviting....there's got to be at least one island in the many atthols that are an Olympiad free-zone !
