There was more information in the the text describing the video than the content of the video itself.
Also it seemed that the "suit" was the worst place to see the fireworks.

It's the sort of thing people share on Facebook and I believe it was made for that purpose as it contained no information or explanation, was short and didn't require sound to watch(safe for work).

Thankfully YouTube DOES contain lots of interesting information from people around the world. Of course of varying quality.
Personally I enjoy watching videos related to different type of electronics and pinball machines, found some useful repair videos. (one example: ). Also Conan has his "serious jibber jabber" that I found interesting( )

Ever since 2007 where they announced that hey decided to focus on "the people behind the technology, than the technology", they have been working hard to become nothing more than yet another "reality" show channel.
When I dropped cable tv 2 years ago, their transformation seemed to be complete and they had nothng but camera whores in their shows.

I had the 500 and got a 2000 later on. Installed a SCSI controller with 40 megabytes of disk space and a 8 megabyte RAM expansion card. Took forever to install all the memory chips in the card(62 or 72, cant remember if it had a parity bit).
Also had a vt200 terminal from work which i connected to the serial port so I could access the cmdline while someone was playing games. I guess it was most for show. :)

As a "former European" you should know how crazy it is to claim that Europe has some sort of common values.
There are no "European values". There's a bunch of countries with different values who happens to be in a trade union together.
It is only the politicians who have been lying about the EU and are trying to make it into United States of Europe who will claim we have a "united Europe" with the same values. Every single true European knows each country has it's own values.
