Although I knew these facts for a long time, I was still impressed again when watching this.
to the Anonymous who left a comment for the 17th or 18th post:i partly agree with you. the relationship between han and tibetan is not perfect, there do have some problems. and there also have some people from xinjiang dont like olympics. but u have to know that's just few people. they cant represent the whole chinese thinkings! it;s the same as there do have discrimination problems in USA, but u cant say all of the americans hate black guys. so when we describe americans, we more prefer to say they r a multi-culture nation instead of a discrimination nation! it's the same as chinese, when most chinese welcome beijing olympics, u cant say they cant represent the whole chinese just because there r few chinese dont like the game!and also, i think there is nothing wrong to show a nation to the world by using the olympic game as a tool! we want people more understand us and know more about China, this is not a political act, but a cultural act!i even stick a beijing olympic logo on my car, but the reason i do that is not to show off my country to the world but to celebrate olympic game as a human game instead of a chinese game. so when we say chinese r really have keen desires to welcome the olympic,we have to know one basic thing: the olympic game is not just for chinese, it is a internetional game, it represent the whole human!i think i'd better to leave this comment for this post too, because i also want to say: we are all human! no matter u r black white or asian, we r all human! the olympics is the whole human's game, no matter it is be hold in beijing or in london, it is be hold for the whole human!
Great Post, Really enjoyed watching.However I have to disagree with the last point the narrator made...I believe so far, the single most important photograph every taken, was infact the very first photograph ever taken.Without which we may not have been able to take deep space pictures.http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2006-07/world-first-photograph-nicephore-niepce.jpgCheers,Brandon
That first picture ever taken was amazing, it must have had at least 10 pixels. I see your point in this, but here's a question for you, Brandon: which do you think is more important, the first novel ever written (arguably Cervantes' "Don Quixote") or a more modern work with more influence in today's society?
