From the ridiculous to the sublime?

Diane Sawyer recently interviewed Randy Pausch on 60 Minutes - during which we saw this, an incredible experience in an incredible life, which sadly will be too short.

Can you see the video? Can you? If not, here's the link.

Luckily we have 23/6 to redress the maudlin and the mawkish:

...wait until every pompous idiot realizes America's insatiable hunger for inspirational advice and tries to copycat [Pausch's] success with a Last Lecture of their own.

And because the pompous idiots are not only pompous, they're idiots, 23/6 created the Last Lecture-o-Tron. Because that's just the kind of people they are.
