Notes From My Commencement Speech: "You're Dumb" (actually Aaron Sorkin)

OK, it's not mine.

From Aaron Sorkin’s commencement address at Syracuse University (via and h/t to @alexgoetz)

"Make no mistake about it, you are dumb. You’re a group of incredibly well-educated dumb people. I was there. We all were there. You’re barely functional. There are some screw-ups headed your way. I wish I could tell you that there was a trick to avoiding the screw-ups, but the screw-ups, they’re a-coming for ya. It’s a combination of life being unpredictable, and you being super dumb."

Book it!  That's money.  See the whole thing here...
