    It was briefly mentioned on the BBC broadcast as the athletes were coming in but I agree there should have been a mention in the ceremony.

    And SR, I know. There were loads of soldiers walking around as well (unarmed) and that did reassure me. Guns don't I'm afraid but yes your right it probably is something I will have to get used to and congrats to the US for their great start!

      That upset me too, really its not like they have to remember the tragedy every single year, but just once in a while and the fact a single favor was not given was not that classy. Theres actually a protest about it up in NYC, alot of people are angered understanbly so.

        I'm the same way. That being said. *Puts out several huge bowls of sugar for my favorite Lemming*

          Maybe I was too sleep deprived from starting a 9-5 job but I could have sworn he talked about it and the fact the IOC wasn't doing anything.

Today was the first time I'd even seen a gun and to see so many officers carrying around rifles was a shock. They have put weapons on the roofs of some local residental tower blocks as well. I think that when the Brits were looking foward to the games, we didn't think of this side of it but I totally agree that after last summers riots in London, there needed to be a show of strength, doesn't make it any less of a shock though.
            It was your first time seeing a gun? Wow... I never thought of that, I was shooting and cleaning a rifle by the time I was four so it was no big shock for me, but I guess that it would be to people who've never seen one before.

              Wow . . . I thought I started shooting young at 6.

                  What is ATC?

                  You might find this enteresting. My dad actually used a .303 Enfield to teach me how to shoot.

                  Is anybody else having trouble with GW today? The start page won't come up for me but the drop down menus work.

                    I think we're kinda diverging off topic here so lets get back.

                    Once upon a time there was a couple named Sparky, they fell in love got married and had lots of babies....the end.

                      I don't know where y'all have been at the past few days but there was in fact a commemoration held in the Olympic village before the official start. And I'm sorry to say this, but I agree with Jacques Rogge that such a commemoration has no place during the festivities of an opening ceremony which is about the Olympic Games in 2012 London.

                      As far as security is concerned, they better whip out the best of the best. They really can't afford an incident of worldy proportions, they are after all responsible for the safety of all athletes, visitors, crew, volunteers and the city of London. Upping security for events such as the Olympics isn't a one off thing.

                      Guns - I love the look of them, but I don't like em. And I sure as hell don't feel safe around them, no matter who's handling them.

                        Okay, I guess that discussion killed the thread, so back on topic. Only about 9 hours until our Conversion postathon. This is gonna be a good one.

                            Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

                              I won't be here, I'm desperately trying to get more enthused about my upcoming trip to Ypres and surroundings. So far, no luck. So, I'm hoping that watching A Very Long Engagement will bring me into the spirit of things... (watching it in French of course).
