    Wow. That is very cool. I want a chewing gum to sponsor my trip around the world.

    If that didn’t make you feel good, you’re a toaster.

    I test out as non-toaster.

    Love the Bollywood scene where he synchs up with the dancers. APOD is a daily visit for me.

    I tnink it would be fun to play a game where each of us list the places at which he dances which we have also visited. I’ll start:

    1. Teotihuacan, Mexico
    2. Mexico, DF, Mexico
    3. Chicago, Illinois
    4. Vancouver, BC
    5. Atlanta, GA
    6. San Francisco, Ca
    7. Los Angeles, CA

    Yes, I have been limited to a single continent. But I travel through books, too.

    Mike, I haven’t been limited to a single continent, but you’ve got me beat. Of the places he’s been, I’ve only been to Chicago, Atlanta, and Montreal.

    Janie, what am I if it made me cry?

    Man, this video made me smile very deeply for the entire time it played. It’s really uplifting. Stephanie, you must be one of these people.

    Cry? Really? I guess that might depend on *why* it made you cry…

    Janie, it started when he was on the stage with the kids. They were performing–it showed all over their faces. They should have been dancing. He was dancing, even when he imitated their moves. They gave up something to learn how to perform. At least in my experience, it takes an awful lot to figure out how to get from there back to dancing. Watching everyone else dancing after that was a bit much, even though it was exactly what should happen. That’s why.
