Anyone else like "TED Talks"?

    I like then because they have so much information packed into a short time frame. Most of them are under 20 minutes. Some of them I really do not enjoy, but those are usually more political. I like the more informative ones.

    So here is a TED talk of Stephen Hawking in parabolic flight. One of my favorites. I cried the first time I watched it.

    (let's see if I can figure out how to embed real quick)

    I enjoy them.
    Yours is a very good one!

    My favorite was the one by Jill Bolte Taylor: "My Stroke of Insight".

    It's an amazing series and I usually get hooked quickly and watch a few. Love that they have a channel on Roku.

    I am not familiar with Roku.

    Jill Taylor was very well articulated in that one. I have watched it many times.

    I love the one where they discuss Cassini-Huygens Saturn program. I cried watching that one as well.

    They are more hit and miss these days. They always seem amazing, but there is some snake oil as well.

    I'll second that. Usually I get bored quickly though and go listen to music.
