What did everyone think of the opening ceremony?
I liked Beijing's and Sydney's better.
The Tempest citation, the Industrial Revolution part, and Mary Poppins were all pretty awesome.
Far too much Queen(the Monarch, not the band), forced and artificially looking multiculturalism, and Internet references.
Also, I really admire Atkinson, but the character of Mr. Bean bores me by now, it's a pity he's so much more popular worldwide than Black Adder.
On a related note, the Lithuanian flag bearer had the coolest name ever, Virgilijus Alekna. That's like crystalized awesome "Fuck you, bitch! I'm Virgilijus MOTHERFUCKIN Alekna"!
