Spoiler:  Also avoid looking at the Cauldron thread until after the OC if you don't want the surprise spoiled

Cool thanks. Will avoid any cauldron spoiler now. Want to be surprised

How annoying. I've decided to watch repeats of QI on Dave until it starts.

Yes Rob I saw her summarise the ceremony too. But I picked up most on what she said about....(possible spoiler)

 

how it will be a very carbon neutral ceremony which may be very relevant later on. Is it possible there may be no actual flame at all in the cauldron?

( how would it be a cauldron if it is not a receptacle for the flame ?  )

It would be odd to do a huge torch relay across Brazil then not have an Olympic flame at the end of it. Unless they are REALLY going to make a statement that changes the tradition for all future Games. Maybe they'll make a big thing of it.

There's zero chance they axe the cauldron. We know what it looks like and how its going to work. I won't get into details because I know some people want to be surprised but there's going to be one and there's going to be real fire.

Probably will be a smaller flame or a single small flame moving from one point to another

Like I said, I'm staying quiet out of respect for others but you've almost got the right idea

Possibly the weirdest Olympic tweet so far. From BBC's Dan Walker. :ph34r:

Spoiler

The hardest part about the tape delay is that I can't check this page, twitter, facebook, anything or I'll see spoilers.

The Pão de Queijo is ready to go into the oven and am about to switch the TV on. All's well with the world - except I think I left my ceremony outfit in the washing basket!
