100 French cops on roller blades.
Isn't that the most glorious thing you've ever heard of? Like the kind of thing you'd see in the background of one of the Lord of The Rings battles? If I had my way (I don't) this would also become a common new theme in rap videos. Another great moment: hundreds of protesters shouting at torch bearers who happened to be wheelchair athletes. This isn't a slam against wheelchair athletes, who are, in every measurable way, far better human beings than I. I'm just tickled by the concept, given that you
see people protesting against the wheelchair-bound. At least not since the 20's.
It seems likely these sorts of shenanigans will continue, considering the initial protests during the torch lighting in Greece and the London torch relay on Sunday. At the later, at one point a protester attempted to put out the torch with a fire extinguisher. Training a fire extinguisher on some guy jogging is always going to be pretty funny, but if I were an Olympic protester, I'd be trying to come up with a somewhat grander way of suffocating the Olympic spirit.
Find an intersection where the torch relay has to pass through and flip around the
Train an elephant to shoot water out of its trunk on anything that burns. Hide the elephant somewhere along the relay route.
Organize your own relay going in the opposite direction. When you bump into the real relay, the police won't know who to protect.
Start an actual fire. When the fire fighters show up, they're rarely forgiving of guys with torches.
Streak out of the sky sliding on a sheet of ice and snatch the torch from the torch bearers hands (you'll need the power to manipulate flows of ice and excellent balance for this.)
Disguise yourself as a Chinese official and stand along the parade route looking like you belong there. When the relay approaches with the torch, douse it with the powerful hose you were holding.
