I'd just like to ask, as a Brit, what did you Americans or Canadians or people not from Great Britain think of the ceremony? Did you follow all or most of it, or think it was a pile of **** that you couldn't follow?

I thought that would be the case for many people watching around the globe, it was very British orientated, but if you understood what was going on and the storyline, it was ******* fantastic.

Not being a dick whatsoever, but I honestly couldn't follow it... can you explain it to me?

No I understand why it would have been confusing,   
It starts of representing the history of Britain in the 1800's, how there was a huge industrialization boom in Britain, represented by the steaming pillars and coal and iron forges etc. There were men in army uniforms representing WW1, and women dressed up as suffragettes who fought for the right to vote (for women, obviously) in the same time period as the WW1. This was intended to build into the more modern eras, introduced around when the Queen made her epic acting debut with Daniel Craig. It developed into a hospital scene through the NHS, which basically highlighted the success and effort the NHS produces and the lives protected and saved in Britain by the work or hospitals and charities, but we were reminded of the dark side when Voldemort comes and shoots puffs of green into the crowd - resembling the success of Britain's authors and the dark side of children in need. The most epic part of all in my opinion was of course Rowan Atkinson, which was simply a comedy act that made practically everyone laugh, and if you didn't then 						****					 you. The final section aimed to build in the era's of music in Britain, hipster 1960's and then punk rock, then Nirvana in the 90's etc.   
It was all very British and had random inclusions of Britain's rugby success and wealth in the 20th century, and randomly the introduction of foreigners to the country, topped off with music by excellent artists like good old Paul, Arctic Monkeys and Emile Sande.   
Sorry about length of comment, I felt patriotic writing this. MFW Rowan plays the keyboard the way he did.
