I Dare You To Watch This Without Smiling

I present this as it came to me. There is a link at the end if you want to know more. The links below are all Matt Harding's.

Please, enjoy.

Happy People Dancing on Planet Earth

Credit: Matt Harding & Melissa Nixon

Explanation: What are these humans doing? Dancing. Many humans on Earth exhibit periods of happiness, and one method of displaying happiness is dancing. Happiness and dancing transcend political boundaries and occur in practically every human society. Above, Matt Harding traveled through many nations on Earth, started dancing, and filmed the result. The video is perhaps a dramatic example that humans from all over planet Earth feel a common bond as part of a single species. Happiness is frequently contagious -- few people are able to watch the above video without smiling.

Tears of joy! Incredible video. Dance everybody, dance! Matt is cool, it’s good to see that he’s still out there cruising around. Leave him a comment about his evil dancing. LOL! I’m sure he’ll appreciate it. Great job Matt! Stay safe out there! Keep dancing!

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
outlaw ALL dancing

moving bodies to music
must be seen as evil

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
only Earthlings may dance

it is simply forbidden
elsewhere in the Universe
