We stopped having pagan ceremonies two around thousand years ago. Now, in order to impress a bunch of foreigners (you guys) and achieve self importance in the eyes of the world, and of course to be an integral part of these new and very horrible olympics we resucitate this crap ceremony. Yep. Moving forward in the world.

And being England it will piss down with rain every day.
Only at apparently random intervals for apparently random lengths of time. The weather here isn't as predictable as "piss down with rain every day".
So instead of boring timings like "This event will start at 1500", events will have timings like "This event will start some time between 1400 and 1600, whenever it looks like there will be a bit of time between rain showers". Much more interesting!
