London Olympics 2012

London has the 2012 Olympics! Maybe we will get a pointless monorail that doesn’t actually go anywhere just like Sydney. I have to make a small complaint to the UK Olympic committee already though –

Please do not fly the ‘red arrows’ over the city of London at low altitude. I was walking back from the post office right next to the Swiss Re tower when myself and the other hundreds of people on the street froze in our tracks and looked up to the sky in horror as the sound of jet engines approached at low altitude. I imagine I was not the only one not thinking ‘oooooo I hope its the red arrows’ but rather ‘OH MY GOD TERRORIST ATTACK TAKE COVER TAKE COVER!!‘.
