Despite the fact that the Chinese government has an atrocious track record on human rights and the Communist regime runs roughshod over its own people, the Chinese sure know how to throw a party!
I'm not a huge Olympics fans (Go USA!) but I did decide to watch the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Damn that was amazing! Thousands of people performing near flawlessly in harmony to create what must be the largest live show ever produced. Ever. It was beautiful, intricate, precise.
