They're just going to leave them sitting on a nasty-looking barge? They should hang them from the side of the bridge.

Odaiba Marine Park, which is the venue for triathlon and distance swimming. It's also the venue for E coli and the smell of raw sewage. But the athletes will be given a series of inoculations before competing, and will be participating in full body hazmat suits.

And woe betide anyone who tries to copy the 5 rings logo. The IOC tried to prosecute a little old lady shopkeeper in the UK for knitting 5 coloured rings to hang in her shop window.

They'll probably melt from the toxicity before the Games begin.

What's the betting they are made of plastic? Perfect for this anti-environmental Olympics. Tokyo, unlike other Olympic cities, hasn't made an Olympic Park. They had the land, at the old Tsukiji Market, but decided to make a car-park there instead, to then be replaced by another development.

great glad the rings arrived. I wonder when the work schedules for all the people who wont be able to make it to the office due to millions or foreigners will arrive.

I always wonder when I see a country invest so much in the Olympics if it would have been better to take those funds and invest instead in their infrastructure, the poor, the elderly, etc. Geez.

So, how much does it cost to lease the rings from the Olympic Committee?

Beauty. This is a symbol of our best, kids. None of you out there are probably even near the skill set that these atheletes have. Oh, and that includes me. LOLzy.
