LesserEvil: I wonder if this David Foster Wallace commencement speech is any different than the one posted here tot he video tab last week!Good enough speech, to boil it down: Stop thinking everything is about you, because it will make you miserable. True enough.
He's right, and so is this guy:
DeltaPunch: Loves me some DFW. One of my favorites is this short little clip where he's asked about the usage of "prior to".
ihopOVERpancakes: I can't help but disagree with this guy. Sure, you shouldn't treat other people terribly just because you're having a bad day. But then again, if someone is a dick to me I don't see why I need to pretend that they're having a rough one. Certainly true in some scenarios, but some people are just a**holes.
Altitude5280: There wasn't a speck of dust in there for me. But it was cool.
doyner: Wallace committed suicide by hanging himself on September 12, 2008.
Saberus Terras: doyner: Wallace committed suicide by hanging himself on September 12, 2008.Goddamnit, I read this just after the little bit of tears from the speech. Shame that such a collected, aware being was so alienated from life that he saw little choice but to leave life.
EvilEgg: This is the most depressing speech ever.Your live is going to be a sucky, meaningless grind, learn how to cope early.
Dinobot: EvilEgg: This is the most depressing speech ever.Your live is going to be a sucky, meaningless grind, learn how to cope early.worst part? he couldn't. Kinda renders the speech pointless.
