Oh, I've seen some great ideas / designs, but the only one that comes to mind are the rather clever men's urinals.

Don't know why that the first thing that comes to mind....


( There are some rather risqué designs published to the web, please don't post those pictures. )

"The cauldron designed by Thomas Heatherwick was described as "one of the best-kept secrets of the opening ceremony"; until this point, neither its design, nor its location, nor the identity of the persons lighting it had been revealed."

Perhaps the designer was working his notice, much like the Blackpool rock roller who produced two tons of the confection with that very word through the middle.

Usually they have a big auction of Olympic bits & pieces after the games are finished & I think the National Olympic Committee gets the money, thats what happened here in Calgary. Mick B. PS = Thank you GB for a very well run games, I enjoyed it every day.
