    Olympic torch relay: 150K eBay bid 'a hoax'

    An internet auction bid of more than 150,000 for an Olympic torch was a hoax, the seller has said.
    What gets me is that the torches are being sold before the games actually start. Should stop them being sold until after the games imo.

    Some of the grey people who run with them look a bit porky... are they like security or something?

    Anyways all this negativity will disappear once the games get started (assuming it isn't a total fuck up).

    For their own safety ofc. The met comment from the first guy who tried to do it was along the lines of "it's a moving vehicle convoy so it's very dangerous for people to be there" the copper tackles the guy off the road into the verge, nice and safe then

    The other day I was feeling a bit low, so I went for a walk along the beach. I wasn't really watching where I was walking, and I semi-tripped over something, did that half-fall-half-run thing - luckily no one was around.
    I looked down and there was something sticking out of the sand - it looked odd so I poked around a bit and it sounded metal, so I dug it out, and it was this metal jug - quite old I reckoned cause of the style but what do I know. Anyway took it home and gave it a bit of a rinse, and when I was cleaning the thing it started shaking and then there's this bang and smoke and all of a sudden there's this Arab dude in my kitchen. I nearly shat myself and was pretty sure at this point the thing was some left over chemical something and I was tripping balls, but the Arab dude said hello and called me master.
    He could see it was confused so he explained that he was a genie, and that he would grant me 3 wishes for freeing him from the jug thing.
    Now this of course sounds like a whole heap of shit and I am definitely tripping out, but it all felt so real so I figured what the hell. I tried the whole "I wish for 3 more wishes" and "I wish for unlimited wishes" but the dude was onto that and said that wasn't going to fly.
    I thought about it for a while and then did my first 2 - I won't go into details but they were pretty regular ones - money and stuff like that. I didn't want my last wish to be something normal though, so I kept on thinking and then I came up with something that I reckoned would absolutely improve my quality of life - something that I think would be really useful in this day and age.
    I said to the guy that I wanted him to give me the power to give the least amount of fuck; to care the absolute least about things it was possible in the entire universe. He thought about it for a while and then said cool, and with a puff of smoke he was gone. Sure enough I tried to care little about some stuff that came on the radio and it worked - I instantly knew that I cared the least amount that anyone in the universe has ever cared about anything.
    I tell you this story because it provides you with useful context - because even though a genie came and gave me a magical ability to care as little about something as its possible, that power still fails to convey just how much I don't cares about the Olympics.

    You obviously care enough to make a lengthy post in this thread about it.

    Anyway, my wife texted me earlier to say our tickets arrived today \o/

    The British are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist
    threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved."

    Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or
    even "A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the
    blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists themselves
    have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The
    last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was
    during the great fire of 1666.
