Olympics: Hard-X-Core Security

Our professor sent us an email with an updated itinerary today. I'll try to keep it up to date.

He also sent us a copy of the rules for Olympic attendees, to make sure we don't get ejected from the games. Of course, you can't be too rowdy, take in objects which may be used as weapons or might poke someone's eye out, etc. It also looks like somebody got stabbed in the foot with a tripod, because they forbid camera tripods with pointy ends (i.e., no monopods). The best bit?
In addition, rules also ban weapons and equipment including guns, ammunition, crossbows, and daggers; fireworks, firecrackers and other flammable materials; corrosive chemicals and radioactive materials.
