Up an 1 hour and 16 minutes of your life...

The Last Lecture (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo)
^ spend it watching that.

Its of a Professer named Randy Pausch who has pancreatic cancer and knows he is going to die in a matter of months,so he gives one last lecture.

(The video is 5 months old,i dont know the physical state he is in now but i did see him on a dateline episode the other day.)

I highly reccomend watching it.

Yeah we saw that in English class. My teacher cried, he said he does every time he sees it.

Have you read Tuesdays with Morrie? You should. It's an amazing and inspiring novel that will leave you breathless, and will probably change your life.

Yeah the guy that wrote that is one of the best children's authors in my opinion. Morrie was good. The Five People You Meet in Heaven was good. I hope the guy writes more in the future.

Im about 30 mins in, enjoying it.

Good to know theres some real people in this world still ^. Some people who appreciate intelligence and knowledge, quite the opposite of those focused on making a false image and such (also ^).

"The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt." -Bertrand Russell

The people who value intelligence and knowledge are out there, crying to be heard.

They are just drowned out by everyone else.

I havent watched the video yet, but ill start it now.

You know, today I realized that there was something I learned from that movie, and it's stuck with me since the day I saw it.

If I remember right, it was that movie. They said something about how silence is awkward, but Morrie asked what was so awkward about it. And ever since then, when I'm in a silent situation, I repeat that question in my head.

Like today, on my way to the concert I had to ride with my friends' dad for two hours; I haven't seen nor talked to him for about 3 years. It was quiet most of the ride and sort of uncomfortable but I asked myself what was so uncomfortable about it and it was ok.
