The Cauldron


Recommended Posts

The latest rumour in Russian media is that the cauldron will be lit from space. Allegedly President Putin commissioned the national space agency Roskosmos to make that possible.

German tabloid newspaper BILD reported on that (link in German: http://www.bild.de/sport/olympia/olympisches-feuer/wird-aus-dem-all-entzuendet-34568076.bild.html), but the Olympic broadcaster also picked that rumour up in its breakfast show today.

Sounds a bit unrealistic - but who knows? Maybe with such a lighting scenarion, they want to compensate for taking a boring unlit Olympic torch to space. ;) And weren't there even reports that they would use exactly that very torch that went to space for the lighting of the cauldron? They could pretend somehow that the flame was brought down from space with that torch, and then it triggers the "chain reaction" from inside the Olympic Stadium via that fuse up the cauldron.

Well, we'll know in about 12 hours...

IF IT'S TRUE It will be like in Montreal 1976 " The Olympic Flame was placed in front of a sensor that detects ionised particles and was then encoded into impulses and sent via satellite to Ottawa"

But how? They've just tested the lighting on the back of the neck of that slope. It will be lit from inside. How can it be from space?? Totally disconnects from the Torch relay.

Putin's giant orbital death laser battle station platforms which he's set to announce to the world tonight.

i might have a Freudian mind. but if some cauldron need a bit of imagination to look like a penis, this cauldron does not need an ounce of imagination.

the shape and the angle make it look like penis and it's unfortunate.

why are you saying about penis only, i was in Olympic park and it look gorgeous with a fountain
