(If you’ve been following this series, you know I’m working on building a TED talk for TEDxMU on April 14th. I’ve been chronicling the process here on The Daily Blur in the hopes that – by watching me deconstruct the process I’ve gone through many times – you’ll begin to look at public speaking with a little less mystique and anxiety.)
I’ve got two more solid lessons, and I’ll share those with you on Monday and Tuesday. I’ve got the open and close written as well, and I’m doing a little rehearsal for some friends on Tuesday evening.
I want to practice it and make eye contact with sentient beings before rehearsal next Friday.
But, today, I turn the stage over to William.
Last year about this time, I was invited to speak at my alma mater, and I asked Will if he had any advice for the graduating seniors of Southern Illinois University.
He had just discovered my iPhone’s video camera and was awakening to his promising True/False future.
So, Will’s advice to you? Take it away, buddy:
If you can’t see the embedded video, click here: Black Holes Are Doorknobs.
Will Miles with some solid advice:
Black holes suck people and stars up … you know.
But, as you know, you don’t want to get sucked up, but sometimes it seems scientists think it’s a doorknob to another universe.
But it’s not truuuuuuue always.
So keep a lookout for black holes. But it might suck you up because you might not notice when you get close to one.
So, be careful and have fun in space.
And one more thing.
Do not get sucked up in black holes.
Black holes are doorknobs. Boy, isn’t that the truth?
You know the old saying:
When one doorknob closes, another universe opens.
Have a great weekend, everybody.
