I think this YouTube clip is well worth your time to watch.

Though our childhoods are disasters, what he says in this lecture are true.

I'm wondering what my last lecture would be about.

Thank you for posting this Rob, I USED to be a "Tiger", but the abuse made me forget how.

Seriously guys, I remember having aspirations of being a surgeon when I was a boy. I remember knowing all the major organs of the body when I was in 2ond grade, (I was a little weak on memorizing all the bones though lol). My Dad bought me a Grey's Anatomy book just after I was then I had lost interest in it.

Just search for Randy Pausch at

Look for a video clip of his final speech. I really don't know what to think of this honestly. What I did not like was that he implied that the way that I think of myself is a matter of choice. It is not. Maybe being sexually abused was the last thing on his mind. Another thing that bothered me was how he had "great parents". I mean, I'm happy for him, but I'm also green with envy.
