Every part will be cold, wet, expensive, late, embarrassing
International security incident
Went and pirated it instead since pirates are better then the entertainment industry.
I'm now confused why a witch is playing the drums
Very impressive so far, up until the segment about today's youth and social media anyway. They managed to make social media look even more retarded then it really us. Now im actually bored. Dizzee Rascal is cool though.

WEAPONS OF MASS lolstralia
4x100m men's was glorious. Perfect swim from the french. Why the US put Lochte last is beyond me, he's weak on the 100 free.

Regarding the language question, the Olympics always does all announcements and stuff in up to three languages, English, French, and the home country's language. Usually (at least from what I've seen) the home country's is last, hence this year it's French then English.
Why French at all? That's above my pay grade.

Supposedly it's carrying a load of streams, where the independent European broadcasters have pooled their stuff together for one pan-European site. I'm going to see what it's like tomorrow.
I'm not too sure it works in Britain because ye have the BBC as official broadcaster.
