Beijing Says Goodbye To The Olympics In Style

Two weeks of the most awesome shows of athletic ability have come to an end and right to the last, Beijing didn't let us down.
In what was a fantastic closing ceremony the flag was handed over to London Mayor Boris Johnson (lol) who said
'Sport is coming home. See you in London.'

I am a bit worried about the 2012 Opening Ceremony though.
Are London Buses and Leona Lewis really the best we could do?

Anyway - congratulations go out to all of the athletes (especially the Brits) who made the games one of the best I've seen.

Working Trevethick Locomotive In Papercraft

Coming from the town where Trevethicks 'Penydarren' engine first ran I couldn't help but to scream with delight at this youtube video of a working version in paper.
The reproduction of the locomotive (above) has a nasty habit of exploding due to the inability to regulate the pressure in the boiler.
