    London Olympic Games 27 July – 12 August 2012

    Today I learned that at the end of each Olympic Games, the mayor of that host-city presents the flag to the mayor of the next host-city. It then rests at the town hall of the next host-city for four years until the Opening Ceremony of their Olympic Games.

    Today I learned the dates of the Olympics! And with today being the 26th I now understand why the fuss has increased.

    Can you tell I’m not really interested?

    I’m glad the Olympics start soon, it means they’ll be soon be over and I can stop hearing about them! lol

    What did I learn yesterday?

    I learned that no matter how much you pay for a cloud storage system, they still have downtime.

    Yesterday I learned that no matter how motivated and driven I am, no matter how hard I try, no matter how much I wish for it, I just cannot fit into those jeans hanging in my wardrobe.

    I learnt yesterday that Leonard (the company car) lies to me occasionally.

    When he informed me that I had 3km left before I ran out of fuel, then 2km, then 1km, then technically 0km, I was still driving :-)

    Touche Leonard, I have caught you out on that one.

    :)

    Just to put Leonard deeper in the poo: he lies about the speed you are travelling also. Speedo’s are generally calibrated to read 3-5 km/ph faster than what you are actually travelling :p

    Today I learned that it is far better to be slow and thorough than fast and careless.

    Sticking to the Olympics theme:

    Athletes can compete as Independent Olympians and don’t have to be part of a country at the Olympic Games for various reasons, including political transition and international sanctions.

    Great little thread!

    Today I learned that in order to succeed we must sometimes go without sleep!

    Been up since 2am to sort my team out to do a builders clean on a new McDonald’s, work all day – grab a power nap and then out at 2am for the next 2 nights/mornings!

    I probably wont be very coherant on Sunday!!

    But it will be very much worth it!
