As of Oct. 31, 2009, it's just 1,000 days until the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
To commemorate this milestone, the Olympic organizing committee posted a cool video featuring dozens of staff members sharing what work they will complete during the next 24,000 hours and 142 Mondays before the London opening ceremony.
A few video highlights include how staff will:
Sell more than 9 million tickets; recruit more than 70,000 volunteers, generate more than 500 million views on the 2012 Olympic website, process more than 400,000 invoices, plant nearly 1.2 million trees, shrubs and plants, pass the flame among 8,000 Torchbearers.
What will I do during the next 1,000 days? Blog about the Games, of course!
And that's no hot air (as was the London 2012 balloon launched to showcase 1,000 days, as shown in photo).
