Haven’t had a chance yet to watch all the way through but if bloggers as diverse as Ace and The Anchoress are saying it’s a must-see, I’ll take my chances on blind-posting it.
If you can’t spare the full 25 minutes, watch the last 10 or so.
Turns out there’s a deep well of wisdom hidden behind that masturbating bear. There are roughly 80 different items about this speech on Google News, and every last one of them looks to be a rave. Out: Conan O’Brien, late-night host. In: Conan O’Brien, motivational speaker?

I have a new found respect for Conan after that. Great address.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
