The Commencement Address
Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is.
My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This raised my expectations, and then he went onto speak for 26 minutes, so I’m just going to tell you now: 12 minutes flat, 11:45 if you don’t laugh.
i was teaching my grandma to use computer so we can talk on skype and such but today she went kinda mad at me because “i didnt show her the knitting programme” and i was like what
and it comes out she accidentally opened ms excel and found out its a great way to create knitting patterns
my grandma is 82
When I think about it, it’s astounding how much my outlook on life is influenced by the Hitchhiker’s Guide novels. I guess that’s what I get for reading them early in my life.
Thanks to the Guide, I can effectively identify Golgafrinchans and Vogons in the blink of an eye.
I read it early in high school. I’ve had a friend read it later on and later tell me that, since reading it, about 47% of the things I say make so much more sense.
If, anon; the word you’re looking for is ‘if’.
