During the demonstration the banners show "Welcome to Berlin 2014 Annual Diplomatic Summit." That has nothing to do with the G8 summit, which, by the way in 2014 happened to be in Sochi, Russia. The last G8 in Germany was in 2007 in Heiligendamm far away from Berlin. See more »
I'm next on the upgrade list... I would give you my seat but I've never been upgraded.
That's all right.
But I appreciate you. It is an honor to sit in front of you... Okay please, I'd like you to have this seat.

If you are self-employed, you will love this movie
This movie is superficial. The jokes are marginally funny. There were nude scenes. The plot is somewhat predictable, a story of a underdog who eventually pulled it off with persistency and heart despite numeral setbacks. However, I for one can relate to the characters, a lot. I watched the movie on HBO on a Friday night after a long day of work as a small business owner. On this day, I bid on a project of a client who really likes our work but seldom gives projects because of our small size. Later I was told that another client was not happy with the frequency of our communication - a large company's VPs have meeting with her on a daily basis. With about a million things to take care of everyday, I can't imagine to have time to call her everyday just to chat. If you have struggles as a small business owner, which I am sure each has, you will like this movie because you feel that the main character is part of you. You try so hard for your family and your employees, whose livelihood depend on you. So the movie struck me on a day filled with some success and some setback at the same time, a typical day of my life. Who can't say that's not how life is no matter what you do. So the spirit of the character is contagious, and can struck you deep. The movie appears to be superficial. But when you think about it, and relate it to your life, it is not that superficial. In fact, it provoked some deep emotions.
