On dancing and optimism  
Despite being full of the sarcasm and otherwise a general space jerk, I am not-so-sekritly an optimist about a lot of things in general, and despite appearances otherwise, generally a happy person.

This carries over into my obsessive news reading. A lot of the news is, in fact, pretty terrible stuff. Lots of intractable problems, no easy solutions, a lot of the world is basically a bucket of suck. However. I will run across things from time to tie that restore my faith in the whole big ball of wax. Usually, it tends to be little stories about how people are all the same, around the world, despite distance, time, and culture.

And sometimes, it's just a couple of videos of some guy dancing like a goofball in various places around the world, and people around the world dancing like a goofball with him. (wiki wiki wiki.)

Seriously, people. It's things like this that really make me love this whole place.

The link leads to the videos! Which I didn't link to here because I didn't want to bother learning about vimeo, but leesalogic did the hard work for me.

I could totally spoil this video with cynical commentary, but just this once I'm going to hold my tongue.
