    Good for London. I'm very happy with the results.

    Well well well. Like I said yesterday, London is in no fit state to be hosting an Olympics. Just look at the terroist attacks of this morning.

    Every country contending for the 2012 games has been a recent victim of terrorism. I don't think we should cancel the games because of it.

    Also its pretty damn insensitive of you to come on here and post something like that. Show some ****ing respect.

    Being a smug bastard while emergency workers are still trying to rescue your fellow citizens from your subway system is almost beyond belief.

    WTF...shame on you.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    Yeah, housing all of those people, even mass transit would be packed to the brim. Moving about the city, simply impossible.

    2016 is long enough away that I will probably have relocated to SoBe by then (that's what most of my friends do when they reach mid-life crisis).

    nah, paris is too beautiful, they might make way for ugly modern architecture and ruin it.

    London isnt as pretty, so im fine with that. haha. I loved what chirac said about british food, pretty hillarious that heads of state could be so... silly, funny? anyway, its a funny rivalry either way.

    I would rather it have been France. Our little country is already over crowded as it is. London is too small to house all those people and provide transport for them. London is in fact terrible full stop.
