    It's true, apes really are idiots. Mind you looking round the world, there are plenty of examples to choose from without getting excited about a fire-stick. If only sapiens were so passionate about global warming or the starving and the poor.
    Well said Reggie. It's mass hysteria over a hyped over nothing. Personally I would be much more excited if a cure had been found for cancer, or all wars and killing stopped, than following a corporate bandwagon around the country.
    Ironic that you think the Olympic Torch Relay is "mass hysteria over a hyped-over nothing", and agree with Reggie who seems to believe in man-made Global Warming, which IS an over-hyped nothing - started in America (like most things that harm the public) as a method of population control that has escalated as another excue to tax people and companies more... whereas the TRUE scientists, who are getting the same funding as the fake ones, are finding out pretty much on a weekly basis that the original fearmongering climate models aren't worth the paper they're written on.
    Are you doing anything to cure cancer, prevent wars, or stop people being killed? No? didn't think so, so why poo-poo a once in a lifetime event that brings people from all parts of society out onto the streets in a happy mood.
    Yeah sure the outright advertising from the beverage company, a banking group, and the mobile device company were not required - but the Olympic Flame and what it represents will never again pass through York in the lifetimes of most people that saw it on either day... and if you were too busy on your high horse to miss out on seeing it then I feel sorry for you."
