    thats a pretty good time since I would have got a good job, save money for it, and go to all sports i love to watch. Once in a lifetime i should say, if it had never come to london, then i would never be able to see an olympic event right before my very own eyes. I just feel lucky.

    I bet you would if it was in Edinburgh.
    And why would your uneducated guess assume this? I bet that if it weren't for the Labour rose next to my name, you'd be calling me a "bitter SNP supporting jock".

    I honestly couldn't give a rats arse about The Olympics. Besides, we get the Special Olympics in Glasgow. That's much more interesting and amusing.

    Do you think we could make a TSR London Olympics Society, AND keep it going to 2012?

    Sigh. I'm personally rather upset that we won the bid - I live in London, so now there'll be a huge rise in taxes, not to mention tourists around where I live. I'm also extremely UNsporty and don't think I can understand months of "OLYMPICS!!!!!!! OLYMPICS!!!!!!!!! OLYMPICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" everywhere I look, be it TV, radio or newspapers. And a huge stadium that will never be used for anything again....but still, supposedly it's good for the economy, and now a lot more people will be able to blurt out nationalist rubbish. How many riots will be started in London I wonder...

    That would eventually work out to quite a lot. I'm happy that we got the Olympics, but I also live in London, and am not looking forward to the tax rise. By the time the Olympics come around, I'll be 27 and will probably be paying taxes, so that won't be fun.

    Its less then buying an apple a week, and you can always get free entrance by becoming a volunteer/steward. I don't know if they've started accepting people yet.

    Can't really apply for what is in 7 years time. I'll be 27 by then, and I haven't a clue what I'll be up to then.
