As you may know, from my topic on bowel blockage and the pain that comes from removing said obstruction, I spent a lot of time in the past week in bed

Looking desperately to find some variety of entertainment that involved nothing more than lying still, I eventually stumbled across Ted Talks, I'm wondering if anyone else has seen them.

I think I'm one of few people I know who aren't crazy about TEDtalks. If you like them, though, you should also be aware of TEDxTalks, especially if there are any near to you. Those are just independently organized TED Talk events. Browse them by popularity or date posted:
I sprinkle sand into the waters of night. The grains burn as they fall, reminding me of another in times long passed away. I watched him even then as he fell, his face undefeated, his eyes still proud.
