    I dont know how many of you care about the olympic games and to be totally honest, i dont really care.

    hahaha, i dunno. I like it and theres symbolism indeed. In the ancient greek olympic games there was no money prize. The only prize was a coronal made from an olive tree branch, which is exactly what the logo is.

    My fav olympic logo was the one seoul had, fuckin sick:

    And i dont feel biased at all saying that from the last 3 games we got the best logo:

    Yeah, I know, right? I mean, it could have been in San Juan, but NOOOOOO... had to be in ATHENS. HOW ORIGINAL.

    Hahahaha, j/k, if we had won that bid, this country would have ended.

    Dude, the Sydney one looked JUST like the Tripod logo!!

    Hell yes, the upcoming two are looking sweet. And I sorta gathered that it was an olive branch and everything... but why is it all busted? Hahaha.

    The olympics started on that rubbish country and this year they're coming back home. you better recognise you biggot..


    Hev, we have the biggest security budget any country that held the olympics ever had, on top of that we're the smaller-poorer country to organise the event in modern history. Shits tight as hell, you see zeppelin planes and choppers flying all the time, cops everywhere, cameras every 100 meters, NATO awacks monitoring the whole damn area, all the worlds secret service agencies are here...however as proven in the past you can never be safe against a terrorist hit, for all that matters the security couldnt be anymore hysterical. It better be safe cause all of us will pay that shit on taxes far more pumped, it better be worth it.

    Man Tesseract y'all got some serious security levels for the games. Patriot missles? Greek navy off the coast, including US 6th Fleet. 400 US Special Forces? Blimp flying overhead with high resolution cameras? Greek special forces and law enforcement everywhere. Radiation detection devices? Security cameras everywhere. Incredible.
