Cant be the only on on here that wants this whole Olympics thing to end.
Its just not as entertaining as it is in games
Olympic organisers Locog said it was due to a "malfunctioning burner"..............
It is not uncommon for a flame to go out and this can happen for a number of reasons, for example, in extreme winds

Agreed. I can just about accept the games themselves (despite the ridiculous cost of hosting the Olympics and the inevitable disruptions it will cause), but what I really can't stomach is all the BS around it: the torch relay, the ceremonies, the barge on the Thames, the tower that will charge tourists £15 just to walk up it...it's just an endless stream of faff and naff!
Am I just being cynical or is it really just a load of crap?
