Olympics 2008 opening ceremony: Unparalleled magnificence

... is the least I could describe the Beijing Olympic's opening ceremony with. Unmatched colors and beauty one after the other... making you wonder how and what machinery was orchestrating all that.. until the human hydraulics behind that all would come out and wave to the crowds. The best one, short only to the ending episode where a Chinese hero from '84 olympics literally flew up in the air to light the main torch, was a grid of symmetric blocks moving up and down with robotic precision making 3D shapes that one could only imagine till now... only to realise they were actually controlled by humans!!

You have a reason to be proud of your nation, my Asian friends! What a show!!
