Wow! Twitter really does expose the most clueless of people. Related to the Olympics, I saw some tweets asking why there were so many Black people in Brazil. Remember how many people on Twitter didn't know the Titanic was real?

well technically the olympics DID start around 3000 years ago, they were in ancient greece, though they were very different to what they are now, they went away for a couple of thousand years though and came back at the end of the 19th century.

Well where did they go then? Somewhere like the outback of Australia where no one could find them? They couldn't just go away to nowhere. We need to be told these things dammit.

well they just simply didn't take place, since the romans banned them, it was only reinstated by some frenchman in 1896.
