  1. Happy Dr Randy Pausch day all yes he has his own day November 17,

    Sadly most people will not have the patience to spend an hour to listen
    his talk is gold

    i wish to travel in time and shake his hand

  2. 34:36 I actually use a lot this trick! if I really need to hang up on some telemarketer, I hang up while I am the one talking.

  3. Sorry Randy, we can't yet lay a piece of paper on the table and scan it right away. But we have mobile phones which draw all the attention we have from us.

  4. 53:29 "Now I'm not a medical doctor, and I don't play one on TV…"
    He's just casually aware of his resemblance to Robert Sean Leonard!

  5. This guy is a hero. Cancer is the worst thing ever. Wish he was still alive. He would have a ball with all the VR tech and graphics.

  6. I converted this lecture to mp3 since there is no visual appeal. I listen to it once a year, at least. It keeps me focused.

  7. Surprising amount of negativity in these comments. Would like to see you would react when you found out you had pancreatic cancer. This man is a tremendous demonstration of a courageous human being.
