You thought I’d forgotten about The coolest pix of 2012 week 33 right? Wrong. I simply had to delay them for a day has we’ve been having some major server issues this past week, but we should be back now. Week 33 was the week that saw the Olympic games in London come to a close and the troubles in Syria still be as serious as ever. New this week is the violence in South Africa, where more than 30 miners were killed by police becasue they were on strike for better pay. Here’s a tip to all future strikers, don’t go on strike carrying machetes and spears and refuse to put them down. Let’s hope week 34 brings us a bit more joy.
