  • Discovered in 2003:

    The underlying law of nature may be the world’s most useful, profitable and encouraging knowledge.

    e.g., It is the most? effective? and efficient means to improve the performance of any process.

    Great personal, economic and societal advantages? exist to identifying the underlying law of nature first hand, for oneself, and to understanding and applying its principles.

    Bing or Google it as a start.

    How can so many people dislike this? It’s simple, hearing someone going cheerfully, nay, willingly, into “that good night…without a fight against the dying of the light…” really grates on some peoples nerves. Sounds a bit like the ‘born again’ types going up to see Jesus.

    The whole ‘Not in denial’ and “I’m dying…I have the best doctors in the world.” Total BS and pure character feces of a cynical quitter. Other people miss all this subtext and just find it touching and sweet.

  • Just before a steep-fall or at the risk of accident, people stop talking & start weeping/crying/praying.

    It takes courage to talk & inspire others.
    Randy Pausch had achieved so much that God Almighty decided Randy should be recalled,

    Still, Randy sneaked a chance to give us a flavour of his thoughts.

    This is truly what Swami Vivekananda called “Life-ennobling, Life-giving and Life-building idea” .

    Taking a deep deep bow to you, Randy.

    @rickinick no matter how good your doctor is, your chance of surviving pancreatic cancer for more than 5 years is only 5%. 75% of those diagnosed die within only 1 year of diagnosis. He was trying to get attention for this awful disease because it receives almost no publicity, even though it has the highest mortality rate of all the major cancers yet only receives 2% of the NCI’s funding.

    @MRVIP540 I truly pity you if this is really the way you look at this lecture. If you are so ignorant and heartless to not feel the power and sincerity behind what this man is saying, then I don’t know what kind of an excuse for a human being you are.

  • @GSheppo92 he did it so his kids would know what he was all about. read the book.

  • To be honest tho, its a bit big headed to go up infront of loads of people and just go on and on about how good you are and what you have achived. I feel sorry for the guy and am upset that he died but he really only did this to convince himself that he achived alot in his life

  • “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity”…

  • incredibly indulgent. Like anyone cares what some loser has to say. Look at me, I flew in zero g. He just a rich, spoiled show off (I can do push ups!). World is better with him gone.

  • If you like the trailer, watch the movie for fr33 at Free Movie Zone . n e t

  • That was a great motivational speech. The ending kind of made me tear up.

  • he kinda looks like steve Carell.

  • People posting offensive stuff here makes me wonder that God is really good. I’d never be that kind to the human kind. This is someone having the courage to use his condition to inspire other people. Man, no matter how natural death is, it is the most uncertain surety of all. Think about it before you take the next flight. Some people have the chance to do this, others not, but not many people face this stuff. Death is a scaring, make no mistake. This guy is providing something good here.

  • @sai011: can’t agree more Bro.

  • if you have not read the book By Randy Pausch, “The Last Lecture” you should read it. it goes into more detail than the speech.

    very inspiring.

  • @bigbrother396 Violence is never the answer. Maybe Randy would say that too.

  • How can someone possibly not like this? I would kill these 1626 retards to bring Randy back if I was granted a wish.
    R.I.P.

  • @sk8adio42 lemme guess.. you were one of them? Personally i don’t go to CMU but i see no other valid reason to dislike this video

  • I haven’t cried like that since i dosed on mushrooms and realized i wasn’t doing anything with my life.

  • Wow I “head fake” all the time… did it with poi… piano.. guitar…fighting…being a nice dude….I just call it “motions/actions” and i break it down to a simple T.. and I simplifie everything… never try to over complicate… and when I do get finally get aggravated about something, it usually hits me a lot less harder then before I’ve had this mindset.

  • lol at 00:39:48 ! very inspiring video.

  • @obiwansbane That’s not funny.

  • there are many datig side for you naneedj.info
