I like to think that I was an early fan of TED talks. Many are genuinely thought provoking if not inspirational. When though, TED invited comedian/musician Reggie Watts to give a talk on what ever he chose to talk about the result left me somewhat stumped. It is either the most brilliant talk ever or the most stupid. I just can't decide. If you watch and are left open mouthed in quizzical confusion then you will mostly know how I felt when I looked at my last physics exam paper at school. In that instance, the examiners didn't take long to come down on the side of stupid rather than brilliance. It is, a very fine line you know.
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." T.E. Lawrence; Seven Pillars of Wisdom
