This is a professor from Carnegie Mellon who has pancreatic cancer and inevitably will die soon. He is giving his last lecture here and offers some great advice.
There's a more condensed version, only 11 minutes long, from the Oprah show that you can watch here: http://video.stumbleupon.com/?s=ithct48cqw&i=ufcchmyxqsuj9vwsemax
Or check out the whole thing which is almost 80 minutes long. It's worth watching!

OMGosh.

"Don't complain. Work harder." Ain't it the truth!?!

And, the last thing he says...so sad.

OK, Rich had a rocket painted on HIS wall at Wildwood. HA!

Saw the most of the Oprah show bit, but, the danged computer machine just kept going....
I like the guy. I think I have to try for the 80 minute number, though. I LIKE patter. He does it good, and I do it terrible.

But first, I'm still trying to put a telescope together for Bro, and take down a show and get ready for the next one, and come up with some new stuff.....

LIFE!
THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE!
