congrats to our fellow british gearslutz

my completely selfish inner child was totally exicted at the possibility of having the olympics here in new york but alas, they go to london.

bummer.

not because they go to london but because they don't come here... man... the scalping opportunities i will miss...

congrats you lucky blokes!

Yeah this is really cool
I'm hoping that one of the good side effects of this will be improved transport in the capital

That link didn't work, could you post it again?
When I arrived in London 18 years ago, the food was quite frankly, ****
In the last 10 years the food culture here has improved dramatically in so many different ways that it's nothing like its former self
Thank God!

I can't immagine the Brits getting this right at all.. tutt

Corruption in awarding building contracts..
Delays
Soaring cost that will bankrupt the city for years to come...

Sh!t sandwich if you ask me...

Athens is rumored to be on it's KNEES as a result of their Olympic expediture

However, this does act as a WONDERFUL distraction from the Iraq war... Tony Blair will be sleeping very soundly tonight...

By the time it's near completion, the Conservative party will probably get in, fire everyone so THEIR guys can get the cash and it will all be a mess...

Jolly good!

Speaking of British Cuisine...

"We can't trust people who have such bad food,"Chirac was quoted as saying. He reportedly added that only Finland had worse food in Europe, and that mad cow disease was Britain's sole contribution to European agriculture.

What a way to ingratiate himself. Maybe if he spent less time stuffing his mouth and more time learning how to run a country he'd be better off lol
