Olympics #3: 100,000 Condoms
I must say I rather enjoyed the Olympic opening ceremony, especially the egalitarian lighting of the "cauldron", it was good to see Cameron's big society given visual form and it was wonderful to see how billions of pounds could be spent in such a short time, though I guiltily wonder just how many NHS hip ops that was or whether the money could have been spent on mosquito nets in the third world - but that is the Judas question, so we shouldn't go there. I hadn't realise that the industrial revolution changed us from Hobbits to Orks but others have said that but it was a useful metaphor to use on Life Sunday.
I don't know when the "show" bit started to become so important and preceded the march of the future the worlds PE teachers but what I can't get my head around is why, apparently 100,000 condoms were distributed to the competitors.
