    Would love to go, but the wife and I are planning a trip to the states in 2017 so may not be affordable.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    By that time, I'll be in Uni (hopefully), would be a gun 2 weeks. You'd be welcome to stay at wherever I am.

    Difference is I'll be 26, experienced in something, qualified in other stuff, and hugely talented.

    You'll be 19 and pretty useless.

    Actually, could have me telling you what to do for two weeks. Would work.

    I wouldn't mind spending an extended Summer holiday over there in 2012.

    I think the Poms will do a swell job of hosting it.
    I cant make my mind up about 2012

    On one hand London is one of very few genuine global cities, has a magnificent history and is based in a country with wealth and fantastic sporting heritage.

    On the other hand there is a recent history of administrative incompetence, the country has pretty low morale and it isnt a country that sparks a positive vibe. And the weather is poor and prices sky high.

    Could go either way imo. Hope it is the former with an Olympics to remember.

    Neil will clearly end up adding up the decathlon scores. With all this money being spent, they may as well now save taxpayers' cash by not investing in half a dozen Casios.

    Yeah true, also if any of the long-distance track events are shortened due to rain he can state the winner by Duckworth-Lewis

    Would likely result in a javelin-based injury.

    Jeez, I wouldn't stab myself with a javelin just because my boss told me to

    An attitude like that is why you're not on the Olympic team.
