The London Olympics and Paralympics look like they might be costing $600 million less than previously thought!
That seems absolutely ahmayzing until you learn the total projected cost of the games is still $14.2 BILLION!
So they originally thought it'd cost them $14.8 billion. So it's a win, sort of.
Unless you knew that the original amount they planned to spend was
