1.) neufer was poking at me rather than at you with his comment
2.) you might have realized that had you read the whole thread

ok thanks, now it's clearer. It's true, I didn't read all the thread, thing that I usually do before posting. In this case I just wanted to post a comment on the image, I wasn't specifically intersted in other's people view. Anyway I'm sorry if I sounded "touchy" :wink:

Being neither expert nor nerd I loved this one. Could (should?) have been related to the "dance" of the stars around the super massive black hole in the center of the milky way.

love it, such a happy video...but too large for the screen...or rather not centered, and that stupid advert fort tanks was blocking the names, and couldn't close it for that reason

Turned it off. It's stupid and meaningless. Like ancient Rome, we're in the "circuses and bread" stage of our dissolution. Feel-good idiocy sure as hell is no answer. And I assume tax dollars paid for this.

False. It was supported by Stride. (Yes, the chewing gum.)

Matt funded this video himself; Stride sponsored an earlier one.

I have been having some difficult times lately, but to watch Matt's video is to be hugely cheered up in seconds. Also, my friends want to know the tune I keep whistling, I refer them to the jodrellbank site where I first saw this video. Amazing!

It took more guts to go to North Korea (and they probably appreciated it more).

I just got this via e-mail. I loved it! The dancing, the places visited, the costumes you donned ~
it's a wonderful way of showing all people can come together and dancing is one they all love!

You and your beautiful family dancing and the bowing ~ perfect ending!

I plan to share this, especially with my 3 kids & 7 grands. Kudos~
And thank you ~
